Statement:

Life for Seaside native, Jorjett Strumme, has been an adventure echoing those shown on the big screen of Hollywood. Strumme’s lifelong dream of designing and creating glamorous fashions for the legends of Hollywood was a dream destined to become reality, and a source of inspiration for the artist.

“My dreams came true when I left Seaside and moved to Los Angeles,” says Strumme, where she was given the opportunity to work with her favorite costume designer, two-time Oscar winner, Helen Rose and then Emmy award winning designer Nolan Miller. Strumme found herself working creatively with the very same Hollywood legends she had dreamed of. “It was wonderful. I worked with all of my favorites: Barbara Stanwyck, Lana Turner, Bette Davis, Ginger Rogers, and Ann Miller, Just to name a few,” says Strumme.

What happened next was another dream come true for Strumme, “For 10 years, I traveled the world with Elizabeth Taylor as her Personal Assistant and stylist.” Strumme adds, “I gathered fabric, trim, beads, and feathers along the way.” This beautiful and unusual collection, along with her experiences in Hollywood inspired the work Strumme created for her show 'Glitter!'.

In ‘Glitter!’, Strumme has created a blend of Hollywood nostalgia and a love of classic movies, presented a collection of unique original art showcasing her talent in the form of masks, which are created to be displayed as art or worn like the costumes she created in Hollywood. “I love all things that glitter and sparkle. With a background in costume design, a mask is the perfect canvas for my art form. I can paint, sculpt, and combine almost any artistic medium to create beauty, whimsy and lots of fun.”

                                                            ON GOING SHOW

Deroy (Deacon) Sharp

You might describe Deacon much as you would a fine painting: "an original" - or, at the very least, a special edition. Originality and individualism have become underlying objectives for him, and categorizing his work seems a bit of a challenge.

A sculptor, painter and maker of masks, he has worked in traditional realism as well as technical and impressionistic styles. His subjects cover an equally broad range: horses, cowboys, jazz musicians, large and intensely colored pastoral landscapes, and small animals that wildlife artists who portray majestic game might overlook. After viewing a few of his pieces in either medium, however, you see a singular style.

Born and reared on a Kansas wheat farm, Deroy Sharp ("Deacon" is a boyhood nickname) saw farm animals and wildlife daily. He began painting and carving their images. Always knowing he wanted to be an artist, he studied fine arts at Colorado State University in Fort Collins and at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, exploring design and impressionism in depth.

For a time Deacon earned some money painting portraits of prize-winning livestock. After college, he worked for a while as a technical illustrator in the defense industry and later as a design technician for an electric utility. Deacon says he resisted his natural inclination toward impressionism because, "I thought the public was looking for something else and, you know, you kind of want to be somewhat successful," he explains. However, doing traditional realistic sculpture didn't give him personal satisfaction or prove financially lucrative.

One day, in discussing the situation with his wife, Jodi, he decided, "I'm gonna take a bold step. I'm gonna go and do what I want to do and what I was trained to do and what I am drawn to do. If it's just for ourselves, so what. We'll have art for our home."

He began by designing a few masks, instilling his work with greater stylization, and to his surprise, the masks started selling. "Not only did the public gravitate to what I was doing," Deacon recalls, "but I was freed up to do what I really enjoy."
