Aqua Soul is the exploration of water themes through the artistic works of photographer Patrick E. Barton and jeweler and mixed media artist Kelli Sweet.
Barton describes his photography as the "heart and soul" of Barton Visions. His works focusses on under water photography from his international travels. In Aqua Soul, Patrick has taken the water theme beyond the image to the tactile by creating several different styles of water fountains featuring his photography.
To extend the Aqua Soul vision, artist Kelli Sweet has created a compliment of jewelry in hammered silver, copper and brass accented with pearls and Czech glass beads. The jewelry evokes thoughts of water through the circular shapes and colors.
The show will be on display September 2nd through September 26th during normal gallery hours or by appointment. Smiling Turtle is open Wednesday thru Saturday from 10:00 am - 6:00 pm.
