Robin Salsbury, Bird Carver Extraordinaire Bird Carvings and Duck Decoys
Robin shares this about his work,”My inspiration is the real bird, preferring local birds, for the most part, carving them in wood and painting them to capture the essence of the bird which includes placing them in a habitat they might be found in.”
Marian Bauman-O’Dell- Muddy Elephant Pottery
Marian shares, “I have been playing with clay for most of my life. I work with cone 6 and cone 10 clay bodies. Molded pieces are made from white clay slip. I am not a production potter. Each item is a “one-of-a-kind” piece. I let myself “communicate” with the clay from clump to final form. I have been enjoying altering thrown and hand-built forms for unique shapes and designs. My finished products are functional forms.”
Tom Zachman-Tom Zachman Glass
Tom shares, “I recycle wine bottles and driftwood in to wind chimes, I recycle bicycle parts into stained glass pieces.”
Kevin Tubiolo – TOTL Photography
Kevin describes his work, “Mostly local photos sold as greeting cards, framed and unframed prints. The photos are primarily printed on paper. There are some photos printed on metal and canvas.”
Jackie Salsbury-Wolf Paw Designs
Jackie is a jewelry designer and shares this about her work, “Inspired by the organic lines I see when walking in the woods, I choose stone and form metal to bring those sensibilities to my jewelry designs. I work most often in sterling silver and mokume gane with stones that reflect the hues found in nature. I’ve also begun incorporating glass created by local artists into my most recent work.”
Maureen Outlaw Church- Outlaw Church Fine Art
Maureen shares,”Encaustic wax painting, also known as hot wax painting, dates back to the Egyptian mummy portraits from the 1st Century B.C. Modern encaustic paints combine pigments with beeswax and damar resin. I use a heated electric pancake griddle for a palette and paint with natural bristle brushes on primed hardwood “cradle” panels. My paintings are float framed for protection, and to give each piece a finished look. In Sept. 2017, I traveled to Ireland for a two-week encaustic painting workshop. Naturally, just being in the settings of seaside cliffs, quaint, tiny towns, rolling meadows, and farms was plenty of inspiration for subjects to paint. After my return, I painted a series of encaustic Irish cottages. In oils, I painted from photographs I’d taken to create several landscapes. I also painted a portrait of a farm horse named Millie, who captured our hearts every morning at our bus stop.”
Maia Horvath – Maia’s Ethereal Creations/ Heaven on Earth
I have always created in some form or fashion. It has always been my safe haven and private place where I can fall into another realm which allows me to gain a perspective on life’s good and life’s hard situations. It may be that it’s a time to shut down the distractions, gain clarity and meditate.
When I was a young child, playing didn’t satisfy me like making stuff did. Fortunately, my parents supported creativity and a family friend took me under her wing and taught me how to sew, macramé, etc. I always found myself figuring out a way to create, even when I didn’t have traditional supplies or means. And so, I became innovative with my approach.
I don’t sleep well. I have a “Busy Brain”, many ideas and creative concepts come to me while I try to sleep, or in my dreams. How blessed am I, that I can get up in the morning and create my dreams?! I know God has a hand in my creative journey. There are times when creating that I don’t feel myself, it’s as if something else is laying down the paint, paper, or blending clay. It is a mind-blowing experience!
Women tend to be the subjects in my artwork. Maybe it’s the curve of a woman’s body or the soft expressions in her face that appeal to me. There is a gentleness and an air of whimsy that I hope touches people in some positive way. Part of my aesthetic is to upcycle/repurpose – canvases, frames, bottles and vases, jewelry, vintage lace, and trim etc. I love so many mediums that it’s difficult to just pick one, so I use many: paint, paper, found objects, and my favorite, Polymer Clay. I have focused on mastering polymer clay (still learning), it is magical! It is a very versatile medium which offers a way to incorporate details to some of my work. My works include mixed medium collages, Wall Dolls, Polymer Clay Ladies, and Jewelry”

This fantastic event draws patrons to I-Square in Irondequoit to enjoy activities, music, great food and art! Last year patrons were dazzled at the quality work the juried pop-up artists presented. It was a very successful event which has inspired the SECOND year!
Patrons will enjoy the fantastic fall festival which includes hayrides right to the doorstep of our Pop-Up Art Market. The market is a sponsored collaboration between I-Square and Irondequoit Resident Susan Carmen-Duffy who owns Create Art 4 Good, which currently resides (when not popping up elsewhere), at the historic Hungerford Building.
