Art Demonstration featuring Cathy Talbot 

Cathy Talbot is a life-long resident of Tupelo, MS. Always interested in the arts and after raising one son, time was found for not only enjoying the arts but creating art. Classes at the National Ornamental Metal Museum and Memphis College of Arts lead her to the ancient art of enameling or the firing of glass to metal.

After a day in the corporate world, the lights are on most every night in her backyard “Empty Nest Studio”, where unique jewelry and art objects are handcrafted of copper, fine silver, and glass enamel. Depending on the desired effect, items are torch-fired or kiln-fired multiple times to achieve the high quality of glass fused to metal. View her work here!

Art Demonstration with Peyton Hutchinson

She says, “I am Peyton Hutchinson, an artist who loves color!  Growing up in Mississippi instilled in me a love of the outdoors, and the beauty and drama of nature continue to be my greatest creative inspiration.  As a painter, my greatest challenge is to try to  depict all of the gorgeous colors of the landscape.  Therefore, I consider myself a colorist of contemporary landscapes.

 I graduated from the University of Mississippi with a bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting and also studies at the Rhode Island School of Design.  During college, I ventured to the Marchutz School of Art in Aix en Provence, France where I fell madly in love with painting natural landscapes plein air.  That’s also where I discovered my new best friend, the palette knife!

 I live and work from my studio in Madison, Mississippi with my husband, Burney, our three children and two pups.  Locally, I have studied with renowned artists Jere Allen, Greg Cartmell, and Bob Tompkins.  I also studied impressionism with Italian artist Jerry Fresia, and Californian artist Camille Prezwodek.”

Art Demonstration with Susan Wellington

Susan Wellington was born in Sasebo, Japan to a Mississippi father and a mother with a strong artistic side.The family returned to Mississippi shortly after Susan’s birth, and she has resided there ever since. As a high school senior, Susan discovered her love of art under the instruction of Frances Braswell.  She attended Millsaps College and Mississippi College where she graduated with a degree in Art Education. 

Following graduation, she spent three years teaching at Jackson Academy before returning home to start a family.  While her children were young, she began a career with the Jackson YMCA, which remains a passion. Following the death of her mother and an “empty nest,”  Susan returned to her artistic roots and began building upon her prior training.  Susan has studied watercolor with Laurel Schoolar, Wyatt Waters, Sharon Long, and Janet Rogers.  Bob Tompkins has been her primary mentor in oils, along with workshops under Joe Anna Arnett, Lucy Mazzaferro, Roger Dale Brown and Patience Heyl.  

Susan paints from life, relying on scenes from her travels and her Mississippi  home for inspiration and subject material.  She  paints weekly with the Flowood Painting Group and at Bob Tompkins Studio in Gluckstadt. Susan currently shows her work at several respected galleries.  Her work has also been seen in shows throughout the metro Jackson area and has been featured in both the Flowood Compass and Brandon Compass magazines.  Her paintings hang in private and corporate collections across the country. In her spare time, Susan enjoys reading, gardening,  traveling, and spending time with her husband, children, and grandchildren.

Art Demonstration with Pat Gavin

Pat says, “I have been producing high-fired stoneware and raku ware for forty years. My stoneware is produced using all natural materials of the highest quality. No lead is used in any process of my pottery. After the pot has been made, it’s placed inside a kiln (furnace) and heated to eighteen hundred degrees. The bisque pot is then cooled and the glaze is applied. It is then put into a different kiln and fired to twenty three hundred degrees. This glazing fire process takes twelve to fifteen hours to reach temperature and then the kiln must cool for thirty-six hours before the ware can be removed.

My stoneware is oven, dishwasher and microwave safe and is made to be used and enjoyed daily. 

I also produce a line of Raku ware. Raku is a process that was developed in Japan hundreds of years ago. The use of this process was introduced in the United States in the 1960’s. The pot is placed in the kiln and removed when the temperature reaches eighteen hundred degrees. It is then placed in a mass of combustible materials, such as sawdust or leaves, in order to provide a reducing atmosphere for the glaze and to stain the exposed body surface with carbon.

Raku ware is extremely porous and should not be used for food of any kind.”
