Additional Details: This gallery features a series of painted art gourds by Philadelphia area artist Lynnette Shelley. Although Lynnette's primary work is with painting and drawings on paper, wood panels and canvas, in late 2013 she became interested in painting on dried gourds, which has a rich history wtih many indigenous and folk artists. Lynnette liked how the new media allowed her to present her artwork in a 3-D format, while also allowing her to work with traditional / natural materials.
Each dried gourd measures between 7 to 10 inches tall approximately and is between 4 and 6 inches in diameter. Natural variations occur with each gourd so no two are shaped alike. The gourds are individually hand-painted with ink and acrylics, varnished to a high gloss shine and signed on the bottom.
Please note: The green gourd is no longer available, however the red and blue ones are available for sale. If you would like your own custom gourd, please contact Lynnette and specify what color gourd you would like and whether you wish a tribal dragon, lizard, bird, fish or animal design. Gourds are $135 plus shipping.
