Emerging Artist for 2014
Exhibit June 27, 2014 to July 28, 2014
The dichotomy of science and magic greatly influence Kimberly’s sculptural practice. As an artist using glass and light, she reveals the inside and outside while simultaneously providing a perspective of volume. Sharing the duality of scientist and magician she utilizes the materiality of both in order to work or affect the medium of perception.
“Decipher” is a sculptural exploration of perception, light, color and space. Kimberly communicates with her audience beyond written and oral conventions through the materiality of glass and light. Implementing code, symbols and metaphor, she directs her viewers to look beneath the surface of the observed in order to decipher the underlying organizations of phenomena.

Founder of the Central Florida Watercolor Society, Ken’s main interest is in the explosion of color and pattern creating expressive paintings. “Big Women” focuses on a series of painting of monumental nude forms of women in domestic settings.
Bra-Vo is an art inspired “art bra” fundraising event of Artisans on fifth, a 501c3 not-for-profit corporation. It raises money to provide mammograms for women in need in Lake County, FL. Mount Dora Center for the Arts will turn the gallery over to the artists of Artisans on Fifth for the 4thyear.
Artists and crafters throughout Central Florida are encouraged to submit decorated bra entries. The public is invited to visit the gallery and support the event by buying one or more votes for their favorite bra. Each vote is $1, and funds go to support the cause. You may also vote online.
The culmination of “Bra-Vo” is the auction of the bras. The event is free, and the public is encouraged to attend. 100% of net proceeds are used to fund free or low cost diagnostic testing for breast cancer to those in need in Lake County, FL.
