Israeli-born Nava Ottenberg’s inspiration for her colorful paintings comes from traveling in Italy. Since graduating from the Art Academy and University of San Francisco, Nava has taught art for the past 25 years. With sculptor Eric Bushnell, she led the public art initiative, placing 22 plus sculptures in Gainesville's
downtown. Nava paints portraits, landscapes and still life in acrylic and pastel. Her latest ceramic’s creations began during the Covid pandemic. Mostly self-taught, she discovered the wheel and the lushness of colorful glazes. Nava believes that creating new ways to discovering beauty is the greatest use of one’s time.

Characters by Lindsay Carlton runs from September 30th till October 21st. Please join us for the opening reception on September 30th from 7-9PM.
Characters is a series of photographs in which I use both staged photography and self-portraiture to create bizarre scenes with different characters. Within these scenes I create a staged image that introduces both a character and a narrative to the viewer without providing any concluding details. I use costume design, lighting, special effects, and props in these images to enhance this idea of a storyline. Inspired by media and the horror/thriller genres of films, this series also has suggestions of dark situations and theatrical elements. The pieces in this series are large scale inkjet prints on luster paper.

117 S. Main Street
Brian Wilson (Atlanta) is an abstract/energy artist who mainly works with acrylic paints/inks (on canvas) and includes charged crystal/gemstone powders for the protective and healing properties they offer. His paintings rarely reference recognizable form. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted, and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. By applying abstraction, he invites his audience to consider his vision of eclectic, eccentric, forward thinking and apply it to themselves on a spiritual level. Brian currently lives and works in Gainesville.

Christopher Phillips, of Nastiiart, is an acrylic, spray paint, and digital artist, as well as a photographer. Christopher has been creating art in one capacity or another for a little over a decade now. He was very interested in art from a young age, but unfortunately the Arts programs were all defunded by the time he entered high school. Christopher received a camera and some photo editing software as a gift in his late 20’s and never looked back. Recently, he was invited to beta test OpenAi’s AI Art Generation program as well, and has been making incredible digital art, just using word prompts!
The Swing Jazz ensemble, Porch Swing, will also make their anticipated return to our stage!!!!

WITHIN // A Collection of Art by Blood Hive
"I have always had a fascination with anything dark and dreary. I find it comforting and beautiful in ways often overlooked. My art has allowed me to turn my imagination into something people could see and experience. Bending the rules between what is reality and what lives in dark corners of my mind is always a part of my art. I try to take people down a twisting road of unearthly beauty and strange (and eerie) details when they view my art to create an experience outside of traditional photography and design."
2031 NW 6th Street

18/Studios of Grace
Art Studios of Grace got started in late 2015 or early 2016 as a way to use empty classroom space on the campus of Grace Presbyterian Church in Gainesville. The classrooms were part of the Early Years Learning Center, which had closed in 2008. Jay Winter Collins, a part-time teacher of gifted and talented children, and an illustrative artist was the first to utilize one of the classrooms as dedicated studio space, securing permission from Grace’s Session and their relatively new pastor Rev. Charles Freeman.
