    Our very own Web Designer Brandon Pence will be having his first solo exhibit this Friday, Oct. 29th at the Full Circle Gallery in Fort Walton Beach, FL. We are proud of his many accomplishments as an artist and excited to go see “…and all that could have been…” Below is the official press release:

    Local artist, Brandon Pence, announces his solo art exhibit entitled, “…and all that could have been…”. The exhibit will be held at Full Circle Gallery in Fort Walton Beach, FL. from October 29th to November 21st, 2010. There will be an opening reception on October 29th from 6:00pm-9:00pm, with the artist talk at 7:30pm. He will discuss the developed graphic design skills and his experimenting with three-dimensional mediums. Pence hopes to create an experience to get people thinking and questioning.

    “I’m very excited about this opportunity. I am pushing myself as an artist to create pieces outside of my comfort zone for this exhibit,” says Pence. “This is a collection of never before seen work made exclusively for this exhibit as well as a physical manifestation of my evolution as an artist.”

    This is Pence’s first foray into sculpture and three-dimensional art as a whole. He will be constructing a life-size wooden cross and incorporating a female form comprised entirely of broken glass, crucified to it. Although this may be a sensitive subject to some people, the cross symbolizes a specific meaning to the artist as he hopes to open the minds of his viewers. Pence says, “I want people to think. This exhibit isn’t meant to offend; it’s meant to invoke thought.”

    The 25 year old self-taught digital artist has attracted a niche following for his graphically enhanced photographic narratives. He captures portraits in a unique and intense way, posing his subjects against light and dark color contrasts. The eclectic, passionate tones of Pence? art clearly reflect his musical inspirations such as David Bowie, Johnny Rotten and Sascha Konietzko, as well as European artist Neil Duerden.

  6. Power of 1 – Career Strategies Workshop with Vicki Hinze – Saturday, Oct 23 & 30, 2010

    power-of-one
    The Sandhandle Workshops is proud to announce our first Power of One workshop with author and educator Vicki Hinze, “Discovering Your Career Path – Drift vs Deliberate Choice.”

    Based on Vicki’s 46-page Career Strategies Workbook, this 2-session journey of self-discovery focuses on the three dimensions–physical, emotional and spiritual–that must work in harmony to achieve your life goals. By asking the right questions, you’re encouraged to look past expected responses in examining your past, present and future.

    You’ll receive guidance on how to use your personal copy of Vicki’s Career Stategy Workbook at the first session. Vicki will discuss the value and proper use of the Workbook, using examples from her own life and professional career. And, because we know quiet moments are few, time will be set aside for you to privately start the journey of self-exploration during the workshop using the initial Career Quiz and Self-Interview. Analyze where you’ve been, your influencers and influences, and the experiences and people who have changed your life.

    Return the following week with your completed Workbook and questions. Discover how you can change the way you look at things as Vicki leads individual and group discussions. Develop an Action Plan. Take charge of your career!
