The Bermuda Society of Arts [BSOA] will be hosting an opening reception on Friday [May 19] for the Onions Gallery ‘BSoA Members’ Spring Show 2017’ and Edinburgh Gallery ‘Potpourri’.

A spokesperson said, “The Bermuda Society of Arts is hosting an opening reception this Friday May 19th 2017 from 5pm‐7pm. The exhibitions will continue until Tuesday June 13th 2017.

“Showing in our Onions Gallery, is the BSoA Members’ Spring Show displaying works by member artists in various mediums.

“In our Edinburgh gallery we will be exhibiting “Potpourri.” This show consists of intricate mosaic tile works by Lyndell Furbert and Michelle Preece Cox.

“An experienced crafter of fabric, yarns, pottery and jewelry making items, Lyndell Furbert has now developed a passion for Mosaics that only began in 2015. Her high standard of work includes intricate ornaments, coasters, hot pot stands, unique wall hangings, picture frames, delicate trays and other decorative pieces for the home’ which you can find at her business, Intricate Mosaics.

“A self‐critic, Lyndell takes great pride in what she does, and works from patterns and her own designs. If you don’t see what you are looking for let her know, she will delightedly take your order. Her aim is to please! She really enjoys a challenge.

“Michelle Preece Cox, owner of Unique Perspectives, a subsidiary of Perspectives International is not new to crafting as her first exposure was while attending primary school, in the early 1970s, where she learned to crochet.

“In 2006 Michelle was exposed to the art of Mosaics when her husband and she commissioned a piece.

“Recently she decided to challenge herself with making mosaics. In 2013 she decided to create her home’s kitchen backsplash. Since then she decided to create a few other interesting feats for her home. In 2015 she made a bit of costume jewelry.

“Looking forward to sharing her new treasures, Michelle hopes to add to the Bermudian crafting skill set arrays when opportunity presents itself.”
