–Beth Appleton

“Palm Quilt II”, Cut Paper Assemblage: 28″ x 20″  $1,500. Sold

“The Quilt Series” is one that I often revisit; it reflects my affinity for quilt making, an art practiced by my grandmother. Sewing was my first exploration into design and in my youth I styled my own outfits for special events. Instead of fabric, I now enjoy reinventing quilts by patterning and cutting shapes out of the papers I paint, assembling them in what has become my signature style.

“Spring Forward”, Cut Paper Assemblage, 14″ x 20″, $985: Sold

Like many works, Spring Forward was inspired on a bright day on beautiful St. George Island, in the Panhandle of Florida. That day the water was teeming with fish and the sky turned the color of a tangerine dreamscape.

Artist statement:
 When working on a piece this size, I feel as if I am taking a vacation without ever leaving the studio. It makes me happy to know that many people feel transported, too. These pieces evoke iconic themes I have repeated for years yet each  is special, reinvented anew. I only have time to create a few of these pieces a year; the ones you see here are part of a very limited body of work.
All works are created using 100% archival materials. As each piece is completed, it is triple matted in white, protected under UV plexiglass and then presented in a quality white wood frame. The final matted and framed piece measures 11” x 14”. The art work inside the three tiered white matts measures 5” x 8”.
Individual or groupings of small works are shipped professionally after payment is received. You will be notified via email with the expected arrival time for your delivery. Your total satisfaction is guaranteed upon arrival.
 For one 11” x 14” watercolor/cut paper piece: $300. + $25 shipping. There is a 7% Florida sales tax added to the price if the work is shipped to a Florida address. If shipped out of state, no Florida sales tax will be required.

Shipping and Florida sales tax are not included in listed prices.

This page will update as works are sold and others become available. If you are interested in purchasing a work of art please email the artist at bethappleton@me.com for further information or visit JOBA Studios, The Gallery at High Cotton, 230 Water Street in Apalachicola, Florida.
