Talented Wood Workers Found at Arts Market

Talented Wood Workers Found at Arts MarketOctober 25th at the Fernandina Beach Arts Market has some fabulous artists lined up as well as an amazing Cut-A-Thon to benefit Cedar Haven’s Transitional Home for Women.

You are invited to come meet the artist and learn what motivates them to design such fabulous finds. At Red Wolf Custom Crafts, you will find custom built furniture made in Blackshear, Georgia, by Ben Smith, III. Ben has worked in residential and commercial construction from the time he was 18 years old, building cabinets and some clumsy, commercial grade furniture until 1980. That year he felt a spiritual change and began creating original pieces with solid designs. Now in his mid 60s, he simply wants to be of service to his fellow man and gave up on “becoming rich” when he realized how rich he already was!

Ben will also be bringing fat lighter pine kindling in small packages wrapped with red ribbon for folks with fire places or who just like the smell. Also there is a new line of sculptures made of river bottom wood and deer antlers.

Another wood crafter is Kangee Graham, of Wooden Water. As a landscape designer she finds interesting burls and pieces of wood, from dying or downed trees and makes unique bowls. Turned and taught by her father, each piece is made on an antique lathe and turned into an exquisite piece of art. (No trees are harmed in the making of these bowls.) This artist has also added a collection of tabletop candle holders she designs from oyster shells collected from the beautiful beaches of Amelia Island. She designs the candle holders using tans, whites, grays and a variety of black shells. All of her beautiful pieces are personally signed, and custom orders are welcomed.

Meet these two, and about 30 other artists, at this fine arts market located adjacent to the farmers’ market located on North Seventh Street between Alachua and Centre Streets.

CorMier Hair Studio is sponsoring a Cut-A-Thon, where you can get a professional hair cut for as low as a donation of $10.00. Cedar Haven helps women facing homelessness to transition into self-sufficient living. Specially selected and trained mentors provide guidance and encouragement to aid these women in their journey. Cedar Haven receives no government funds and covers expenses through donations and fund raisers like this one.

Check out the Arts Market and get your hair cut for the upcoming holiday season while helping those in your community, too. The Market is open from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, rain or shine.

Photo Walk 17 at Big Talbot and Blackrock Beach

Photo Walk 17 at Big Talbot and Blackrock Beach Photo by Scott Moore, organizer of the Photo Walks near Amelia Island, Florida.

Photo Walk #17 is a trip to Big Talbot Island and then a 1/2 mile walk to Blackrock Beach. I hear wonderful stories from those who participate in these photo walks and this is a great opportunity to meet others in our community who love photography.

This walk is early and designed for your to capture trees turned to driftwood and black mud/rock like scuptures at sunrise. The walk is one mile, round trip, with rough footing on beach. It takes about ten minutes to walk to the beach from the parking area.

A barrier island on the Atlantic Coast between Amelia Island and Little Talbot Island, Big Talbot Island is best known for its unusual rocky shoreline called Blackrock Beach. One step on this beach leaves you incredible views overlooking a sweep of dark rocks, saw palmetto on the bluffs, and the bleached bones of live oaks turned to giant driftwood along the shore.
