The Gallery’s Visiting Artist of the Month is Sarah Wrona who is no stranger to Front Street having her own studio located in building 200 called the Glass Station. Wrona is not only a multi-talented artist who works in glass and alcohol inks, but she also creates jewelry, welded metal sculptures, found object sculptures and crocheted items. Sarah will have a selection of her fused glass dishes, jewelry, and crocheted scarves on display and for sale at the gallery this month. Come meet both artists and see their finely executed body of work 1st Friday, March 3rd from 5-9pm, or 3rd Sunday, March 19th from 12-4pm.
Bonnie Kuntz is an accomplished artist who also enjoys teaching painting classes at both the Rosewood Arts Center and the Miamisburg Community Center – in conjunction with Sinclair Community College. Kuntz’ work is not only on display at The Artery Gallery, but her work is accepted into a variety of local juried shows throughout the year. The artist is very active in the Miami Valley’s art community, The Contemporary, the Women’s Tri Art Society, and others who help promote art and artists in the area.
Years of raising horses have provided Kuntz with a common subject in many of her works, and her deep love for all animals, flowers and landscapes become the subject of most of her paintings. The artist has enjoyed a successful artistic career over the years having won many awards in juried art shows. And, when not painting, the artist keeps herself strong and healthy pursuing her interest in eastern practices such as teaching Tai Chi Chuan and Chi Lel Qigong. She has a brown belt in Astarte Kempo Karate and is also a Healing Touch Practitioner and has completed a 30-month Shaman apprenticeship program.
