Miriam Bonono Art in Both Shops Through July
Stop by both of our locations to see and purchase beautiful art from Miriam Bonono.
From the artist: “Miriam Bonano grew up in Virginia and has a love for all things patterned, colorful, and detailed... not to mention her undying love for manchego, olives, and bread. She has a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University. Miriam now happily resides with her husband and derpy dog in Selma, NC, in a sturdy farmhouse built in 1928. She certainly is a dreamer and has a passion for painting and printmaking. She loves to explore new materials and techniques, learning along the way to discover different forms of mark making. Patterns and grids form most of her works, but she enjoys playing against the grid and breaking the rules that she creates for each project. She had the great opportunity to study printmaking techniques in Philadelphia under Anne Schaefer. An extraordinary experience that has forever changed her for the better. She draws from personal experiences and dives deep into conceptual thinking. She loves to lose herself within the concept and emerge with something entirely different. Each painting or print tends to evolve during the process which results in each piece never feeling entirely finished; at least for her. Using art as an avenue, it is her hope that she can impact the community around. Pretty cheesy, but completely true.”
Liz Kelly Pottery Available at the Bickett Shop!
Beautiful, functional pottery from Liz Kelly is always available at the Bickett shop. From the artist: “Traditional craft and contemporary design inspires my work - functional home goods that connect people with material and experience. These influences are expressed in wares that are both earthy and elegant with a modern approach to handmade pottery. The pieces accent your home, inspire ritual and encourage hospitality. My degree in Design Studies from the renowned N.C. State College of Design has given me a unique perspective, grounding my work as a studio potter in the craft origins of design. This rich history introduced me to the maker/designer's legacy of functional beauty. I integrate this values-driven approach to my studio practice and business.”
