Jim Brunelle, Retro-Chic-Quirky Pottery And Mixed Media

What can I say about Jim Brunelle's art studio at the Farmington Valley Art Center in Avon, CT ? His studio is just like him.....filled with ENERGY....color......creativity and retro chic quirky objets d' art. You would totally guess that you have just set foot in Jim's studio, an accomplished potter, mixed media artist and art educator.

A Look At Jim Brunelle's Studio 11a

Recently with the opening of "Art On The Line" in the Main gallery, Jim was motivated to completely re-do his own studio which can be found on the first floor. I mean, company was coming to FVAC and Jim and Michael knew drastic measures were in order to zap the studio into guest ready mode.

Loving The Retro Turquoise Formica Table

I snapped some photos of his delightful ceramics, mixed media pieces and studio furnishings. Don't you love how he has his work staged on an old 1950's Formica and chrome table? Love it!Link
