Lisa Davis Demo
Saturday, January 28
Some people live in a fantasy world all their own. Others create fantasy worlds and share them with others. Such is the case with a very special artist who will be demonstrating the almost magical way she creates her art, at Gallery 54 during the 2017 Skaneateles Winterfest, on January 28.

Lisa Davis from Fulton, NY, is the all too rare artist who is able to capture feelings and emotions in her work. The names of her pieces alone, conjure expectations. Names such as Periwinkle Trio, Isabella Butterfly, Fairy Rose Ballerina and Piper & Pepper – the Rosebud Twins, can set your imagination soaring.

Lisa’s work, which she calls “Scanography,” is familiar to many regular visitors to Gallery 54. Her demonstration will begin at noon and end at 3 pm.

She describes scanography as a “non-traditional form of photography, in which a flatbed scanner is used in place of a camera and the digital images obtained are refined in a graphic arts computer program.”

The road to her current popularity has been an evolutionary process with its origins in the first perennial flower bed she planted at her home in Fulton. “After many years of gardening,” she says, “I wanted a way to preserve my flowers that did not involve dryingthem.” Having heard about the technique she uses in her work today, she began experimenting with flowers and a scanner in 2004.

“There was a lot of trial and error,” she recalls, “before I was finally pleased with the results I was getting.” Her work is still evolving, she says, as she progresses from simply scanned flowers to fairies wearing flowers and most recently to colorful mandalas, traditional geometric figures representing the universe in Hindu and Buddhist symbolism. “But always,” she says, “flowers are the stars.”

She’s often told that it’s “impossible not to be happy when looking at her creations” . . . a sentiment frequently witnessed at Gallery 54.

As with most art the artist is the first to find satisfaction in her creations. However, Lisa also gets to share the enthusiasm that her images foster with those who enjoy them. At Gallery 54, many visitors find they are unable to settle on just one of her creations.
Her art has been recognized by numerous awards ranging from 1st, 2nd & 3rd place ribbons at the NY State Fair, to “Best of Show” and “Awards of Excellence” at numerous art shows and festivals. Throughout the month of January Lisa is a guest artist at Rochester’s Image City Photography Gallery.
