PONTE VEDRA BEACH – Stellers Gallery at Ponte Vedra Beach will exhibit the work of nationally-recognized painters Laura Lacambra Shubert, Page Jones Davis and Karin Olah with an opening reception on Friday, April 12 from 6 pm until 9 pm at 240 A1A North in Ponte Vedra Beach. The show is open to the public and will feature an existing and new body of work by each of the artists.
As a gallery favorite, Laura Lacambra Shubert has been with Stellers since 1995. The artists’ individual use of color and light in both subtle and bold brush strokes evoke nostalgic and uplifting feelings by the viewer. Thick with paint in acrylic and oil, each art piece offers light and rich characters which transcend the content of the initial image. Viewers are drawn to feel strong emotions of joy and warmth while focusing on themes of beauty and happiness in a subtle, suggestive manner. The optimistic and romantic concepts portray scenes encountered in daily life.
The artwork of Page Jones Davis includes canvas, paper and woodblock. Her mixed media art is inspired from the aesthetics of the modern market place found in places such as advertisements, apps, catalogs, and stores. She juxtaposes her subjects while focusing on the importance of human contact in a culture that is becoming more and more communicative, yet less connected.
Her work encourages the viewer to bring their experiences to an open-ended dialogue and an implied invitation to become a part of the story. The visual space is created to evoke emotions such as curiosity, intimacy, playfulness, and chance.
Karin Olah works in mixed media collage using textiles, gouache, acrylic, pastel, and graphite on linen, canvas, wood panel, and paper. She works from photographs taken in everyday life while on family walks, days at the beach, and views from her favorite playgrounds along with the environment. Olah has developed a unique brand of fiber art that combines printmaking, quilt-making, hand dyes, collage-work, and painting, to name a few. Her refined process creates a various series inspired by shapes and colors.
Stellers Gallery at Ponte Vedra is open Monday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. and on Saturday from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. For more information, call 904.273.6065. Visit the Facebook page at
