John Diamond artwork

John Diamond - Began woodturning in 1993, shortly after returning to the U.S. following 15 years overseas. He particularly enjoys working with unusual woods - burls from the Northwest, exotic hardwoods and burls from Latin America, Africa and Australia, and Norfolk Island Pine which becomes translucent after immersion in a blend of oils and resins.






Doug Jones - Dip Bowl w/ crab and hand carved dip spreader – 4-6” bowls also come w/ sea turtle (most popular), fish or starfish. Microwave/dishwasher safe – food safe glazes in blues/sand/green or combinations, I designed the spreader and it is hand carved from wild cherry by Jonathan’s Spoons.

Doug Jones - As a ceramic artist, I transform clay into things of beauty that are found on and around the coastal island I call home . . . mugs, bowls, vases and sculpture magically come out of the fire as a fish, sea turtles, manatees and other forms of island art for your use and enjoyment.

I create heirlooms meant to last for generations and I hope my work will give you many years of pleasure and enjoyment.

Aaron Heisler

With an education in furniture design, and more than a decade as a professional blacksmith, Aaron Heisler enjoys creating functional objects that blend the richness of traditional hand craftsmanship with the sophistication of contemporary design. When an artist is enthusiastic in his studio, it is apparent in his work. Aaron’s hope is that you can see and feel the energy that he puts into every one of his creations.







Artwork of Kathryn Riechert Kathryn Riechert

Kathryn Riechert was born and raised in Ocala, FL, and moved to Savannah, GA to pursue an education in art. In 2002, she graduated with honors obtaining a BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design (majoring in 'Metals and Jewelry'.)

Kathryn's inspirations come from everyday life, as she seeks to transform the beauty she finds into the permanence of metal and stone. The designs are often uplifting with positive messages in the hopes that they can make the world a little bit brighter.

Kathryn fabricates with metal and also does glass enameling on copper. In 2010, she began to introduce recycled silverplate flatware into her designs. With a love for the history that the flatware has, these new pieces have a combination of elements: enamel, gemstones, and silver metalwork. Bringing new life to the flatware, while at the same time imparting a tangible history to the resulting jewelry design, is exciting!

The jewelry she creates is generally uplifting and/or happy, as she would like her impact on the world and those around her to, at minimum, be a smile.

Artwork of Sandra Edgar Davis

Sandra Edgar Davis

Sandra Edgar Davis uses her camera with imagination to chronicle the contrasts of light and color that reflect life being treasured .

She scouts the streets of her Savannah hometown capturing the nuances of a familiar scene : the solidarity of warm brick wall offset by a burst of fuchsia azaleas or the charm of a low country cottage draped with live oaks . Inspired by roadside home and natural marsh environment, Sandra transfers her personal observations into unique, dramatic paintings that reflect the delight and the exhilaration she feels every time she picks up her paint brush. You will also note that a collection of her paintings even lean towards whimsical, primitive folk styles.

Thanks to her husband's career as an airline pilot, Sandra has fine-tuned her art in studios and classrooms around the globe: Europe,Asia,South America, and throughout the United States.

As a former Miami resident and teacher with advanced degrees from Florida International University,Sandra taught special needs students to appreciate and experience art in all forms.

Artwork of Lydia Bishop

Lydia Bishop

Lydia Bishop is an artist with a passion for painting. She considers making art a privilege, an incredibly absorbing process of making something from nothing but your ideas, your visual experience of the world around you and transforming that sensation into something someone else can see and share. The making of something from "scratch"....her art is the end of a lifelong exploration of creativity. Lydia has worked in oil, acrylic, found object collage and recently has explored the mysteries of encaustic paint. She attended painting classes at the University of Wisconsin and various workshops whenever time permitted.

About her art, Lydia says, "I believe that painting is a process that starts with a concept and takes you where ever your imagination leads. Different visual moments - color, shadow, shape, word, song or phrase - start the mind thinking how that could be made into an interesting or intriguing canvas. Sometimes, you know exactly how it will end and sometimes you are surprised." To that end, she has found a new fascination with encaustics, the ancient art-form of wax painting.

Her Mixed Media entries in the Landings Art Association Spring Show were awarded a first place in 2012 and second place in 2013. Her work may be seen at the Plantation Gallery of Skidaway island and Signature Gallery in City Market, Savannah. Lydia was raised north of Pittsburgh, PA, received a BSN from the University of Michigan and lived in Minnesota and Wisconsin for many years. Drawn by the art, the history, the charm, the beauty and yes the warm weather, she is a recent transplant to Savannah. "So many paintings, so little time" is what she has found in her beautiful new surroundings.

Cheryl Hardin

By combining unexpected combinations of color, shapes, and ideas, Cheryl's paintings are captured on canvas in a fluid and impressionistic style. She creates original works in oils, using both palette knife and brush. Soft brush strokes and often muted colors provide mood, balance, and emotion in her work. Imagery spills on the canvas as she paints.

Cheryl has studied with some of the finest contemporary artists in the nation, including Chris Groves, Bill Davidson, Roseta Santiago, Ann Templeton, Dee Beard Dean, and Ken Wallin.

No matter what form it takes, Cheryl believes art should unite artist and audience. Her goal is that the audience of her works will experience some of the same emotions driving her creativity.

“The paintings I create that are deemed to have a certain mystique are the ones where the painting itself takes over. I am merely extending the brush which has its own vision. When the painting develops with the least interference on my part, the work truly becomes what it was meant to be.”

Upon relocating to Savannah, Georgia in 2015, Cheryl immediately immersed herself in the art scene as a member of the Landings Art Association, the Skidaway Art Salon for Fine Art, and Signature Gallery of Savannah. Cheryl is pleased to be represented by City Market's original gallery, Signature Gallery of Savannah. Known for its fine art offerings, Signature Gallery has welcomed visitors and art collectors from around the world during its more than 25 years in the same location.
