Patty Corapi: Artist of the Month, Studios of Cocoa Beach

Patty Corapi of Indialantic is the July Artist of the Month at the Studios of Cocoa Beach.  Patty is an amazing creative artist skilled in many methods and mediums.  Her first love is photography, ever since childhood when she watched her father open his meter, check the light, and capture an image. She soon had her own darkroom. Technology changed the art and now her darkroom lives in her computer

 

Patty says, “ Capturing light is magical.  Through a variety of method I can create pieces envisioned in my mind.  Some are printed as seen in the viewfinder, others are captured in the camera and finished in the computer.  I am just as amazed watching images emerge in the computer as when I was in the darkroom watching them develop in the pan.”

 

Patty also works with fused glass and mosaics.  The kiln is another magical technique all be it an ancient one.   Patty cuts glass shapes, layers them, fires up the kiln, and creates art, functional pieces and jewelry.

 

Patty’s work is on view daily at the Studios of Cocoa Beach, 165 Minuteman Causeway in downtown Cocoa Beach and on her website www.pattycorapi.com. A framed print of her “Ghost Crab” photo will be the prize in the Studio’s July giveaway. Visit the Studios any day in July to enter this free drawing.
