Dog and Horse Fine Art’s March ArtWalk exhibition features miniature jewelry and sculpture by Burnett de Loiselle and Paul Eaton, VPRMS, MAA; and miniature artist Beth de Loiselle’s oils. Sporting art created for the occasion by such artists as Beth Carlson, Joseph Sulkowsi and Larry Wheeler will also be on view. The gallery will welcome visitors during a reception Friday, March 1, 5:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Burnett de Loiselle custom jewelry combines silver- and goldsmithing by Susan Burnett with Beth de Loiselle’s miniature oil paintings. Each item, whether a pendant or cuff bracelet, is custom made for the client. Pendants can be worn on chains, on leather, or with pearls or stone beads.
Susan Smith Burnett’s custom jewelry designs have their roots in her fashion industry career. A former New York- and Paris-based Ford model, she went on to study gold- and silversmithing at New York’s Jewelry Arts Institute, where she worked with masters of the art.
Beth de Loiselle studied Old Masters’ fundamentals at The Schuler School of Fine Arts in Baltimore, where she was a recipient of the Timothy Dill scholarship. She developed her own technique for paintings and miniature art, an art form dating back to medieval time when scribes illustrated manuscripts. Beth teaches animal art, floral oil painting and the art of miniatures at the Schuler School. She has exhibited paintings in New York, Paris and London. She has received international awards and has international collectors.
Paul Eaton, a British silversmith, goldsmith and sculptor, will show Beth de Loiselle oil miniatures in his jewelry, his dog and horse charms in gold or sterling silver and miniature dog, horse and fox sculptures, which he casts in bronze or sterling silver. He finishes each piece of jewelry and sculpture by hand, ensuring that each is unique. The two most prestigious sets of initials that Paul is honored with are Vice President for Sculpture for The Royal Miniature Society (VPRMS) and Miniature Artist of America (MAA).
The exhibition will be on view through March 16, 2019.
