Wood, Paper, Scissors brings together two artists inspired by the ecology and material of Florida and Georgia’s natural landscape.
From the Artists
“A life full of stories weaves through my work. For the past 28 years, I have worked from my studio home on the Gulf coast of Florida, a place of boundless inspiration. Here, I delight in tiny marine life and stand in awe of infinite sky. In 2018, my husband and artist representative David Harbaugh and I joined with artist and musician Jenny Odom to form a collaborative gallery, JOBA Art Studios, located near the Bowery in the High Cotton Building at 230 Water Street, Apalachicola, Florida.”
– Beth Appleton
“Traveling between Florida and Georgia frequently, I special attention to the landscape- its beauty and its harshness – its strength and fragility. I am committed to the preservation and conservation of natural resources and use fallen wood and traditional hand tools to create sculptures and functional objects. My works represent new life after moments of trauma and signify resilience across generations. As a woman, I work with tools historically used by men – axes, hatchets, knives, and gouges – to explore a life-long interest in art.”
