StudioWorks, Donna Sherley : March 2nd, 2016

 "Get Together and do Artwork and Instrumental" by Donna Sherley

“Get Together and do Artwork and Instrumental” by Donna Sherley

Hey there listeners!

This is the last episode in my series on StudioWorks.

You know, I saw so many familiar friendly faces at the ‘Reflections’ opening last week. Many of which were StudioWorks artists, the staff, as well as outside creatives…I had such a wonderful time. That exhibition seem to bring so many people together, much like StudioWorks itself. It was a diverse environment, and something I’d love to see on a larger scale.

To say the least, I enjoyed working on this series so much and I hope to revisit it in the future as they grow and expand. I just want to everyone at StudioWorks.

My guest today is Donna Sherley. Donna’s art consists of vibrantly colored paintings and illustrations with a upbeat flair. Other mediums she has explored is paper weaving, clay, and found objects such as the repurposing of old books.
Donna has been with StudioWorks for a long time and enjoys her work there. StudioWorks helps her expand upon her skills as well as give her connections to other parts of Louisville’s art community. She hopes to soon land an arts related job.

You can learn more about Donna’s work from her blog or Zoom Group’s webpage.

StudioWorks, Jeremy Smith: February 3rd, 2016

Hello again, listeners.

I finally got a chance to run by StudioWorks since their expansion—and it looks great. I just stopped in to grab some photos and look around. I haven’t been in a while, so I thought it was about time again.

Some of the pieces I photographed were works by Jeremy Smith.

Jeremy’s art style is rich with comic book influences as well as animation and fantasy art. His creativity was encouraged by artistic family members and friends from an early age. He has been making work professionally at StudioWorks for about eight years.

Jeremy’s methods are mostly tradition pencil and ink, though he has dabbled in using digital technology to enhance some works. The subject matter of his work mainly is made up of hyper muscular individuals, superheroes, and the sort.

Jeremy hopes one day to do his own comic, or at least get his fan art in the back of someone else’s. I feel he is on the right path—he has made his own ‘Yu-Gi-Oh’ cards, greeting cards, and of course several large scale pieces housed at StudioWorks.

You can visit StudioWorks at Zoomgroup.org or the StudioWorks Facebook page to learn about Jeremy and the rest of the crew.

Enjoy guys.
