Exhibits by Jamille Haddad and Delia Swenson
The Studios of Cocoa Beach begins the New Year with two solo exhibits. A Fused Glass Retrospective by Jamille Haddad and Painting the Tropics by Delia Swenson, on view from January 3 to January 29, 2023
Jamille Haddad has been working in glass for 40 years. After reading an article in a stained glass journal, he became intrigued by the possibilities of fused glass, and learned the basics at the Bullseye Fusing Ranch in Portland, Oregon, His exhibit includes examples of fused glass techniques including glass panels, plates, sculptural vases, dam casts, gold enameling and other functional works
Delia Swenson paints in oils on wood and canvas capturing the natural colors of our tropical environment. She explores the beauty of local gardens and flowers, as well as Florida beaches, parks, and recreational areas. Her masterful use of color and composition brings her landscapes to life. You can almost hear the wind and smell the flowers and salt air in her realistic oil paintings.
The Studios of Cocoa Beach is located at 159 Minutemen Causeway in downtown Cocoa Beach. This non-profit gallery is open Monday to Saturday 9 am to 7 pm, and Sunday 10 am to 3 pm.
