a short, fun video about jeff & dale ...

Hello SWFL is a local news media company here in SW Florida. They asked if they could visit our studio & see what we were about. It was fun ...this short, so take a look :-)

We have a new art display in the storefront window of the Franklin Shops on First,

a tree grows at an art festival ....

Earlier this month we directed a children’s community art project during ArtFest Fort Myers. We first sculpted a 7 foot bare tree with no leaves.

During the two day festival, we taught children how to sculpt leaves with masking tape, which they colored with markers and signed their names.

We were incredibly honored that the children then gave their hand made pieces of art to add to the tree.

All weekend long the tree grew it’s leaves for all to see.

We now have the tree back at our studio, where we will finish it by applying layers of glue over the branches, to permanently secure the leaves to the tree, and paint the trunk and branches. When we finish it, we hope to have it on display and various locations in the area. We’ll be sure to keep everyone informed of its whereabouts.

We’d like to thank ArtFest Fort Myers for inviting us to head this project, and the Lee County Alliance for the Arts for helping to make it happen.

an article that makes us smile...

A new article, titled “Making Oddity and Enchantment”, appears in the September – October issue of Gulf & Main magazine, that describes a bit of our history and process of the art we create together. We’re pretty proud of it. If you have a minute to read it, click on the images to to enlarge them.

Dinosaurs That Need Empowerment

Duals: A Member Exhibition is currently showing at DAAS CO-OP Art Gallery & Gifts. We created new art especially for it.

The dinos we made seemed a little scared and timid, so we gave them some masks to make them feel empowered. The masks can be removed, and even hung on a wall.

 From images of these little guys, we made an illustrative photomontage in the form of a diptych, especially for the Duals show. It will be up through August 6th.

DAAS CO-OP Art Gallery & Gifts is located at:
1400 Colonial Blvd, Ste 84
Fort Myers, FL 33907
