Clarke and Clarke to host all day art walk

Clarke and Clarke Art and Artifacts will host an all day art walk from 12-5 p.m., featuring “the art of personal embellishment,” for its First Friday event on Nov. 24.

Two of the gallery’s favorite wearable art designers collections are returning for a holiday show: Hollyce Phillips and Dixie Stanton.

From Hollyce Wearable Arts, Phillips’ one-of-a-kind designs are painted on silk/cashmere or viscose. She is a San Diego artist who transitioned from King 5 broadcast journalism and video production to painting, print making and fashion. Each scarf is a hand painted work of art and is wearable or for use in creative home decor for those whose style is bold and unique.

Stanton is a local studio jeweler who recently retired after 38 years creating unique and highly artistic jewelry in silver, copper, gold, gems and found objects. She was a well-known artist at the Bellevue Art Fair for 31 years and a featured jeweler in many Northwest galleries and other boutiques on the West coast. She is a member of the renowned Seattle Metal Arts Guild and an admired Mercer Islander for many years.

Stanton’s style is timeless, contemporary and collectible. Her famous whimsical and sought after “Fettucine” necklace will be available along with an award winning mixed-metal, linked squares bracelet, as well as bangle bracelets and artistic earrings.
