'Adorned' art show pics

I spent this past weekend with some very special ladies, creating, designing and adorning the Goorin Bros. Melrose Hat Shop. Renee Fontana created stunning floral, feather, and plant displays, accenting the art and merchandise exquisitely. Erin Ashford decorated the walls with her beautiful portraiture photography and mixed media pieces, which enhanced the space and complimented my paintings in perfect unison. Monique Sade Hernandez-Fuentes, our wonderful gallery assistant and Goorin merchandise expert, gave a helping hand and eye to all of our styling. The crew of the Melrose Hat Shop organized an amazing reception and were a great asset in the creation of this show. Many thanks to all the lovely ladies that made this trip, reception and installation a huge success!!!

GoorinBrothers in cooperation with the Cassel Gallery is proud to present ‘Adorned,’ a new art exhibit created by Amandalynn, Renee Fontana, and Erin Ashford. This collective of women has been working and showing together for several years, and has become a strong unit of inspiration and creativity. Each lady represents a different field of artwork. Amandalynn is a fine art painter, muralist, designer, and conservator, whose based out of San Francisco. She has been curating and exhibiting artwork in galleries and venues worldwide for many years. Amandalynn’s main subjects are seductive yet secretive women, adorned with an array of different accessories and stories. Her work has been greatly enhanced by her fellow artists, especially Renee Fontana and Erin Ashford.

ReneeFontana has been working as a dedicated floral designer and consultant for over 15 years. She has a passion for art and design, and has worked with Amandalynn on several interior mural installations and gallery shows, complimenting the artwork with floral sculpture. Passion coupled with experience has helped Renee deliver innovative arrangements that emphasize the symbolic relationship between art, nature, and design.

She’s inspired by the constant evolution of women historically and culturally, and continues to empower people through candid and staged photography. Through stunning imagery of live performances, behind-the-scenes portraits, and her artistic creations, Erin is continually evolving. Erin Ashford and Amandalynn have shown artwork alongside each other for several years. Erin has an ability to capture the female form in a strong and sensual way, bringing to light something universal.
These three women have a long-term dedication and passion to all their creations. This newest exhibit, ‘Adorned’, is an exquisite display of a combination of all their talents.
