Description

The Downtown Art Gallery in Titusville announces its Spotlight Artist for September: Fonda Haddad of Mims, Florida. Fonda is a fifth generation Floridian who has been a fiber artist since the 1980’s when she was one of a group of artists who had studios at Upstairs Downtown in historic downtown Titusville. Fonda specialized in batik clothing and textiles. Wanting to be more three dimensional, Fonda explored ceramics, then basketry and finally working with gourds. Her gourds often incorporate basketry techniques as well as carving and wood burning. In addition to fine art pieces, her gourds can be containers, handbags, rain sticks, jewelry and of course bird houses.

 

Fonda has a Masters in Visual Arts Education and taught in Brevard public schools from kindergarten through college. She works at her studio in Mims creating artwork for The  Downtown Art Gallery and enters several shows a year, including the Fall Festival at John C. Campbell Folk School in North Carolina. She is a teacher as well as competitor at the annual Florida Gourd Conference, held each February in Melbourne and has taught at John C. Campbell Folk School for 17 years

 

Fonda’s work can be seen at the Downtown Art Gallery, 335 S. Washington Ave., in historic downtown Titusville. During their regular hours: Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from  11 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information go to www.thedowntownartgallery.com , call 321-268-0122 or visit their Facebook page.
