Jim Doubleday of Doubleday Studio

I spent a delightful evening with the Doubleday's of Pelham, who won my Precious Jewel Nest paintings. I met Jim, who is a sculptor, in a critique group I belonged to that met in Amherst at Hampton Gallery. I was impressed with his work and his studio which I toured during our visit and he enjoyed a small slide presentation I gave about Eye to Eye and my trip to China.

He states about his work "As an abstract artist creating objects of contemplation for the house or garden, I aim to open a fourth dimension for each sculpture, whereby their mysterious form and meaning evoke viewers' memories and emotions."

Copper Spirit Vessel is one of the pieces I admired when I saw it in person. I borrowed the photo from Jim's website. All of Jim's work is rich in color, spirit, and material.

Alicia Hunsicker's art is undeniably beautiful. She is an expert at extracting the highly-detailed textures and fibers of the human body, bringing them from darkness, into the light, with a technical precision that rivals any modern-day master.
