Gourds reach new sounds

By
From page B3 | November 08, 2013 |

Art on the Divide Gallery will be starting off the holiday season with a reception for award-winning gourd artist, Jodi Reed. She will be the featured artist for the month of November and will have a selection of unique Christmas ornaments and decorations along with many of her fine art gourds. All are invited to a reception on Sunday, Nov. 10 from 1-4 p.m. to meet the artist and enjoy art and refreshments.

Reed, a self-taught artist, became intrigued with gourds in 2000 and dedicated herself to classes exploring every medium possible to use with gourds.

Along with painting, woodburning, carving and embellishing gourds, her latest endeavor has been creating “thunder gourds.” These are gourds with a drum membrane and spring attached to the bottom and when shaken, they “roar” like thunder.

Gourds are particularly interesting to Reed because each is different, so each work is an individual one-of-a-kind creation with its own characteristics.

Her designs encompass a variety of themes often with flowers and animals including horses, deer, wolves, frogs, birds and especially the whimsical dragonfly.

Reed has taken the craft of using gourds to the level of fine art with tools and techniques to create pieces of beauty as well as utilitarian value.

In recent years, she has entered her fine art gourds into several competitions and was pleased to win many awards. To see a sampling of her original gourds visit her Website grammysgourds.com.

Visit the gallery at 6295 Main St. in Georgetown to view Reed’s amazing gourds and the art of the 13 other local artists. Gallery hours are Friday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
