ESSENTIAL NOTES
Croquis Drawings by Deb DiMarco



Sponsored
Allen Steel Co., Inc.

Kim Bolton


Gallery 50, Inc. welcomes two artists to show this month, Kim Bolton and Deb DiMarco. 

Sculptor Kim Bolton’s inspiration to weld came early in her life. As a child, she watched a friend welding a few artworks in her parents’ home and was intrigued. Fast forward to a couple of years ago when metal artist, Jay Stevenson, opened up a class for artistic welding. Her desires fulfilled as a welding artist, she sought materials and found a willing contributor in Allen Steel Co., Inc. of Leesburg. Kim’s sculptures are made of pieces picked from their scrap bins that she turns into fun, quirky, interesting, and eye-catching sculptures. Her show, “Rusted Visions,” will be her first exhibition of her sculptures.  

On the walls will be the recent croquis sketches by Deb DiMarco in a show she is calling “Essential Notes.”

Please join the artists on artist opening night reception, Friday, March 1, 2019, 6 - 9 PM. The shows will run from February 27 - March 29, 2019, with gallery hours of Wed. - Sat., 11-4.

KIM BOLTON HAS BEEN INTERESTED IN WELDING SINCE, AS A LITTLE GIRL GROWING UP IN PHILADELPHIA, SHE WATCHED A FAMILY FRIEND MAKE A COUPLE PIECES FOR HER PARENTS’ HOME. THROUGHOUT ALL THE TURNS AND EVENTS OF HER LIFE, THE THOUGHT OF LEARNING TO WELD HAS ALWAYS BEEN IN THE BACK OF HER MIND.

WHEN SHE HEARD A COUPLE YEARS AGO THAT LOCAL ARTIST JAY STEVENSON WOULD BE TAKING ON A COUPLE STUDENTS, SHE JUMPED AT THE CHANCE AND A LIFELONG DREAM WAS FULFILLED! SHE THEN APPROACHED ALLEN STEEL CO., INC., OF LEESBURG (WHERE KIM RESIDES) AND THEY AGREED TO ALLOW

HER TO TAKE HER PICK OF PIECES FROM THEIR SCRAP BINS!
KIM PREFERS TO MAKE HER ARTWORK FROM THE PIECES SHE FINDS, ALTERING THEM AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE, WHILE COMBINING THEM INTO FUN, QUIRKY, INTERESTING, AND EYE-CATCHING SCULPTURES.
THIS IS THE FIRST OF WHAT KIM HOPES TO BE MANY GALLERY SHOWINGS IN HER FUTURE.

KIM WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE FOLLOWING FOR HELPING TO BRING THIS DREAM TO REALITY:

JAY STEVENSON – FOR HIS PATIENT LESSONS AND KNOWLEDGE.
A
LLEN STEEL CO., INC., - FOR LETTING A STRANGER RUMMAGE THROUGH THEIR SCRAP BINS.
LYNNE JESSICK – FOR HER SUPPORT AND ARTISTIC INSPIRATION.

GEOFF DASH – FOR HELPING TO GET SUPPLIES AND ITEMS TO THE GALLERY

KATIE ALGARIN – FOR DESIGNING THE PIECE “KATIE GIRL” AND BRINGING AUNT KIM SMILES EVERY MORNING.

HER HUSBAND, MARK – FOR HIS LOVE, SUPPORT, ENCOURAGEMENT, AND INPUT IN NAMING HER PIECES. (and for putting up with her weekend absences as she pursues her dream)
