Studio 33 Art & Frame Gallery presents “Inspired”, an art exhibit opening May 5, 2022-July 2, 2022. A two woman show featuring the work of local artists Amy Hunter Drago and Yujuan “Juner” Zhai. Amy’s art is inspired by Mother Nature. Her acrylic and watercolor paintings, poetry, photography, and gemstone jewelry – which is beautifully presented in hand painted boxes – are impressions of her spiritual connection to nature. Amy states: I have always loved being in nature because it is one of the few places where I am somehow the most wholly myself and the most distant from being earth-bound at the same time.”, “The style I choose to depict this feeling is impressionistic; impressionism and abstraction, like looking through the interpreted reality of an artist’s whim and intention, provide an undeniable connection to the spiritual world.” Yujuan Zhai is an Artist/Educator and Master Calligrapher, specializing in the techniques and styles of Chinese watercolor paintings on silk, rice paper, and watercolor paper. Yujuan states, “Being an artist is to use your hands to describe the seemingly ordinary but beautiful moments in life, to use your eyes to help others discover details they cannot see, and to record your feelings in your unique way.”, “The Art of the East requires unity and coordination because its people are deeply influenced by Buddhism, they are humble and implicit.”, “Education is a tree that shakes another tree. The cloud pushes another cloud, one soul awakens another soul.”
