For the month of November, Gallery 9 features the stunning beaded jewelry of Judith Komishane. Komishane’s new creations are inspired by the color and natural perfection of the autumn season.
Komishane creates her signature designs with a wide variety of beads and pendants, including antique pins, ancient Chinese cards and other re-purposed beads from all over the world. For this month’s autumnal theme, she worked with tree leaves dipped in gold and silver — allowing the bodhi, cottonwood and oak foliage to shine. The new jewelry is also adorned with colors of amber, green prehnite and orange jade.
To many, this season also means football. So, for November, Komishane has created Seahawk themed necklaces. She says, “I started beading 10 years ago, while keeping my husband company watching games, and haven’t stopped!”
This month also features painter Gary Rainwater, whose array of subject matter stem from his diverse and interesting life, and includes boats, nature and rustic scenes.
Join Judith Komishane and Gary Rainwater in discussing their art during Gallery Walk, Saturday, November 4, from 5:30 to 8 p.m., at Gallery 9, 1012 Water Street, in Port Townsend. See gallery-9.com or call 360-379-8881 for more information.
