If you haven’t yet experience our 2013 Holiday Show, you still have time! The second opening is set for the evening of Friday, December 27th and we warmly invite you and yours to browse the dynamic art from 5-7PM. We will also provide refreshments and music – a perfect setting for enjoying fine art on Canyon Road. One of the things we love most about this show is the variety – it’s that special time of year where we get to highlight all of our artists’ handiwork in one grand display, and we can honestly say there is something for everyone’s taste represented in this show!
If you love hyper-realism at its finest, Sangita Phadke’s pastels are for you. She has an incomparable style and many of our gallery visitors think her works are photos. You have to see Sangita’s compositions in person – we guarantee you’ll do a double take, when you see that they are in fact not photos, but rather, incredibly detailed and intricately crafted pastels!
For those that are nature lovers, Bernard Marks’ oil landscapes pay beautiful homage to the natural world. He generally paints en plein air, and the proximity to nature inspires him to immortalize what he sees in art form. When gazing at Bernard’s pieces, you will feel like you are there – whether it’s at the foot of a towering rock formation in Zion National Park, or beside a serene mountain lake.
We also have a lot of work that speaks to the souls of animal lovers. Lori Faye Bock and Sharon Markwardt, although deeply contrasting in styles and form, cross-over when it comes to subject matter. Come see the minute detail in Sharon’s grand animal paintings in oil and come enjoy the wisdom and whimsy in Lori Fay Bock’s critters in acrylic.
For art enthusiasts that are drawn toward the more abstract pieces, we recommend Bonnie Teitelbaum and Michael Ethridge to name just a couple. Bonnie’s acrylics are full of movement and energy, marked by distinct gestural scratches. They speak their own language – come decipher them for yourself! Michael Ethridge’s acrylic abstracts have traces of sculptural formations and are cloaked in unmatched color – simply stunning.
If you love art that portrays nature, yet has elements of the abstract and echoes of the magical, April Deming and Christopher Owen Nelson offer just that. Both artists weave realism into their works yet leave plenty of room for the imagination with components that lean toward the abstract.
Can you tell that we’re excited about all of our artists’ varying styles? We simply can’t wait to share these works and many more with you in person. Bring your family in and create a holiday memory that will last forever. See you soon!
