HotWorks.org’s 10th annual Boca Raton Fine Art Show is coming to downtown Boca Raton on Saturday and Sunday, January 26 & 27. Some of the artists participating in this show within the LGBTQ community are wood artist collaborators, Terri Cadman and Martha Cummins.

For Terri Cadman, each day is a gift. To experience that gift to the fullest, she believes we must make art a part of our daily living. Terri’s work is dedicated to bringing art into peoples’ lives through functional objects. Nature has always been a great source of joy, energy, and inspiration for her. The strength, beauty, and serenity of Nature, its forces and its inhabitants influence her art.

The gentle curves, smooth transitions, and defined lines found in Terri’s work are a reflection of the Nature that nurtures her—body and spirit. Handwork, including shaping and carving, is essential to her designs, completing the connection between artist, wood, and nature. It is Terri’s hope that others will see these influences, sense that connection, and enjoy her work visually and tactilely.

Even as a child Martha Cummins was drawn to the natural beauty of wood. Now, through pen turning, she can transform a utilitarian object into functional “pocket art” that can be used and enjoyed every day.

Because Martha shapes each pen individually on a lathe, she can handcraft an endless variety of shapes and sizes to comfortably fit any hand and combine this with beautiful woods from around the world to satisfy any taste.

Her love for wood and the craft is now leading her to design her own pieces in other areas of woodworking from boxes to furniture making. This process of growth and exploration is challenging but very exciting too.

Personally meet Terri and Marth in Booth #64 at hotworks.org’s 10th annual Boca Raton Art Show, January 26 and 27 in downtown Boca Raton, in Sanborn Square Park, corner of Palmetto Park Road and Federal Hwy/US-1.
