Jessica Hockenberry- Glass Art Designs by Jess

I have always been fascinated with hot glass since I was a child. Kiln fusing is the process of heating glass up to 1500 degrees Fahrenheit. My work consists of sheet glass, crushed glass, glass enamels, and pure silver foil to create chemical reactions. Through careful planning and layering of different types of glass, a sense of depth and movement can be achieved. I am inspired by nature and vibrant color.

David Pascucci

Metal artist

David shares this: In the mid-90’s I decided to undertake a frame-off restoration of my prized 1957 pickup. I was very pleased with the results that were realized from this meticulous project. Along the way, I acquired the tools, skills, desire, and mindset to work with metal and comparable artisan media.

I created small metal fabrication projects for friends and family members and they were very well received.  That was all well and good, but I knew I wanted to take my works to a higher level.  Thus, I did my first show 5 years ago at the Artist Row at the Rochester Public Market. Patrons of the event showed great interest in my work, which gave me the confidence to continue with my creative efforts.

Maureen Outlaw Church

Maureen creates original oil paintings on canvas, original encaustic wax paintings, hand-painted wax monotypes. She 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.

Most of the art that I will be showing is jewelry and sculpture. There are also a small number of specimen pieces and wall/window hangings.  All of the art is created with rocks, gems, minerals, and fossils.  Nearly all of the material has been self-collected in Arizona and New York.








Joy Argento- Art by Joy

Joy is an artist and a writer (among countless other things) Her work captures light and beauty in the most wonderful way.

Joy shares: Painting is usually a very solitary endeavor and I love that part. I turn on some music and start to work. I lose all sense of time and often lose myself in the process. It becomes a form of meditation, a connection with a higher power.
I started drawing as a small child. I carefully drew outlines of dogs or cats or ducks with umbrellas. I loved coloring. I loved the big box of 64 Crayola Crayons. Life didn’t get much better than having a brand new box, with all of the crayons still intact. All the points were poised and ready for action. Aqua was always my favorite color. Not quite blue and not quite green, it stood in a class of its own. Crayons in hand, my artistic endeavors had begun.
My art has changed and evolved throughout the years. I dabble in pastel and color pencil, but oil painting is my favorite medium, on its own or added to acrylic pours.
I don’t try to tell a story with my paintings. I want my paintings to remind you of your own stories. That is how you and I connect.

Jamie Williams- Balanced Essentially

Jamie Williams joins us for the first time this year! Jamie experiments with many media, creating from her heart. 

Jamie shares: I have always loved creating.  My work includes mixed media paintings, digital illustrations, and jewelry designs.  My art is a reflection of my experiences and allows viewers to see their own stories too.





Yahaya Alhassan-Ghana Ba African Beads Gallery

We welcome Yahaya for the first time this year too! Yahaya was originally a resident of West Africa where he and his wife built a school! Now his mission is to support the school. Here is what Yahaya shares: I am from Ghana, and moved to the U.S. in 2012. I learned the beads business from my father, who was a bead trader throughout West Africa. From him, my brothers and I learned every aspect of the beads business; my specialty is designing jewelry. My father also taught me to always be kind and that “givers never lack”, or as people say in America, to “pay it forward.” As a result of these lessons about beads, and life, it has been my mission for nearly ten years to give a generous portion of my profits to education projects in Ghana, including a rural elementary school that my wife and I started in 2010.






Jamie Guarrera – Artist

Jamie is joining us for the first time this year. Her work is engaging and thought-provoking! Jamie shares: I am a recent graduate from SUNY Fredonia with a major in drawing and painting. Over the past two years, I have been experimenting with abstract painting and how it can be an outlet for everyday internalized thoughts and feelings. More recently I have been educating myself on the art of woodworking.

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 third year!

Patrons will enjoy the fantastic fall festival which includes a wide variety of activities including our 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.
