Palm Beach Gardens, home/studio of Debbie Mostel, world-renowned jewelry designer, sculptor and painter.

Debbie’s education in art spans the globe. Her high-end sterling and glass fashion jewelry were sold in famous venues such as Bloomingdales, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Nordstrom. They were also featured in publications such as New York Times, Cosmopolitan, Vogue, Harpers Bazaar. Debbie currently has incorporated castings of her jewelry elements into her paintings. Most of her work is half painted and half collaged with not just the jewelry, but also many other found objects that contain special meaning to the artist. A lot of these elements include computer parts such as hard drives, wires, and motherboards.

Joe Friedman, raised in Philadelphia began his studies at the "Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts" a traditional European style art school. Now at his studio in Lake Park he works primarily in oils gathering his inspiration from his photos and sketches taken during his extensive travels. Many of which have a distinct "Parisian" flavor. His work has evolved from a strictly representational view to a more inspirational look at the world. Mr. Friedman's paintings and drawings can be seen in private collections across the country. He will be showing his work and discussing his techniques and what inspires it. Joe currently serves as President of Artists of Palm Beach County.
