Guest Artist of the Month

March 2018


Amanda Dabel


We’re honored to welcome Amanda Dabel as our new Visiting Artist. Amanda is a co-founder of Blue Wolf Studios in Kings Beach, CA. Two of Amanda’s powerful pieces are now featured in our gallery: ‘The Rhino and Elephant heads are an exploration of form, materials, and the commentary on the illegal poaching of ivory. The flowers are made from a red Hawaiian earthenware clay body and welding wire. The Hawaiian clay speaks to the wild connection the animals have with the earth. Flowers were put in place of the missing Ivory, in an effort to put a bit of beauty back into the grotesque event of removing ivory from these animals.’ thank you and welcome, Amanda.
