Artist of the Month August 2019 Noah Moseley



Join us August 3rd, 17th and 31st to meet Artworks' Artist of the Month: Noah Moseley. 

Meet the Artist
Saturday's August 3rd, 17th, 31st
1:30pm - 5:00pm
Light Refreshments


Noah Moseley is a self-trained artist who has lived on Perdido Key since 2003. He began his artistic career around 2008 thanks to the recession and Microsoft layoffs - he had plenty of time on his hands and art was an easy hobby. Perdido Key lent itself to Noah for landscape impressions and Noah's acrylic on canvas island pieces soon led him to Talis Jayme's Artworks Studio & Gallery where he has been a resident artist since 2009.

While impressionist island paintings continue to be a staple of his work, he does not limit himself to just islands. He has added impressionist paintings of sea life found on and around Perdido Key to his collection as well as patriotic paintings like the American flag on display at Jim's Firearms in Pensacola. You will find Noah's palm trees, beach scenes, brightly-colored crabs, parrots and more decorating residences and businesses from Orange Beach to Perdido Key, Pensacola and even as far away as Hong Kong.

WHO: ARTWORKS’ ARTIST OF THE MONTH FOR JULY CYNTHIA HOBGOOD

WHAT: JEWELRY MAKING DEMO by Cynthia Hobgood

WHEN: Demonstration Saturdays, July 13th & 20th, 1:00-4:00 p.m. Light refreshments


We all learned bead stringing in kindergarten using macaroni and yarn. At about the same time I discovered rocks. Just sitting in the dirt searching for the “pretty ones” no driveway or gravel pile was safe from pilfer-age.

Still searching for the prettiest rocks, today I travel the world via trade shows and the internet searching for quality gemstones, semi-precious gemstones, pearls, crystal, artisan glass and metals. At the very heart of beautiful jewelry are these beautiful gifts from nature.

Once selected, characteristics of the heart or focal piece guide the design. Unique designs come from new pairings and combinations in colors, proportion, texture, balance, and scale. The design’s practical considera-tions are wearability, construction and camouflage.

But my first necklace some 40 years ago wasn’t a circle at all. I had not yet learned to close the circle with a clasp. I started stringing and hand knotting pearls with no real objective except keeping my hands busy. Sixteen feet later I had a new hobby and an open- ended lariat. I still love it!

Moving from hobby to business is the result of being “discovered” by Artworks owner Talis Jayme. The quirky little gallery and its very talented artists always have something there to make you smile. Because of Talis my pretty rocks, pearls and I are happily at home.

ARTIST: Wanda Hubbard

ARTIST: Wanda Hubbard

Wanda Hubbard, was born in Birmingham Alabama and is a self-taught artist. She enjoys painting using vivid colors, studying the techniques used by other artists and experimenting with varying techniques/styles.

She began painting in the late 70's with watercolors; botanical themes being her favorite. As an inexperienced painter she was drawn towards watercolors because painting with watercolors is relaxing and forgiving. In the early 90's she began working with oils.

Wanda's work, spanning over forty years, has included various mediums (watercolor, acrylic, oil, ink and resin) but one thing has stayed the same. From the first watercolor to her work today with alcohol inks, her love of brilliant colors continues.
