West Palm Beach, FL - by Jeanne Martin - Works by 2015-2016 Armory Annex Studio Residents Patt Cavanagh, Susan Nash, Erica Howat, Sandra Kuba, and Evan Sahlman will be exhibited at the Armory Lake Worth Annex opening from 6:00-8:00 pm on Thursday, April 21, 2016. The show runs from April 22 through May 20, 2016. Residents were selected through an application process that required an artist statement, plans for the studio space, resume, website, and five images of recent work. Residencies begin in October and are awarded yearly.  

Patt Cavanagh works with Acrylic paint and at times with mixed media. The pieces to be exhibited and the Annex Studio Residents’ show is abstract and minimal work inspired by nature and music. Past exhibitions include Small Worksat JF Gallery in West Palm Beach FL. 2014, Small Works/Big Art and Vermont Contemporary at Gallery-in-the-Field in Brandon, VT. She has participated in juried and invitational exhibitions in Vermont, New Jersey, Chicago, and San Francisco. Patt was a resident artist at Vermont Studio Center in 1986, 1988, 1991-1995, and 1998. She attended School of the Art Institute of Chicago, San Francisco Art Institute, and State University of New York. Patt is learning to play the piano, likes to write poetry, and has an avid interest in urban design.

Erica Howat began taking classes and workshops in 2008 to learn fiber art techniques after ending her 30-year restaurant career. Howat started her studio residency at the Annex so she could have a space to experiment with design and technique with a focus of showing her work. Drawn to organic fiber, Howat expresses her attraction to texture and form through tapestry weaving, knotting, and basket making. Materials such as yarn, paper, twine, leather, ribbon, reed and natural flora, rocks, and pods are combined into the pieces. Erica said, “Inspiration from the form, texture, and wildness of certain materials brings about a creative flow to make a piece that emphasizes the unique, natural beauty that grows around us and which may otherwise be taken for granted.”

Sandra Kuba is a fiber and clay artist. She studies clay sculpture, hand building, and fiber art at the Armory Art Center and has traveled extensively to workshops to learn felting techniques. Sandra said, “I love how wool fibers are magically transformed, experimenting with a variety of raw wools and silks, and hand-felting by layering and building with unexpected materials.”

Susan Nash paints landscape, still life, and life-size figures. She has exhibited in numerous galleries, primarily in NYC and the east end of Long Island. Susan earned her B.A. in Art at the University of Bridgeport, CT. She studied at Academia de Belli Arte, Firenze, Italia, Art Students League, New York, NY, and National Academy of Design, School of Fine Arts, NY. She was a still life prize recipient from the National Academy of Design, School of Fine Arts, NY. Susan has been featured in The New York Times and Dan's Paper of Bridgehampton, NY. Susan said, “I am drawn to the luminosity of water and sky, be it at the water's edge or in my mind's eye. Both the sea and sky resonate with me in a very personal way.” 

Evan Sahlman works in paint and ceramic sculpture. He earned his BFA at Palm Beach Atlantic University. He serves as an artist assistant and Annex Coordinator. Evan lives in West Palm Beach with his wife Chelsae Anne who is a portrait photographer. Together they challenge each other to pursue a life based in and around the fine arts."
