      We’ve been busy rehanging work here at the gallery. Several new pieces are in and we are finishing the mixed media show. It’s all in a wonderful mix of old and new. There are new ceramic pieces by Jill Brugler and newbie Paul Kaplan. Michael has added several new oils he worked on over […]

      Here’s one of the favorite small paintings in our gallery. People are quite drawn to it. A surreal oil by Paulo Ferrier. It measures a little 16″ by 8″, and packs a big punch. ‘Tornado Alley’ is offered at $475. This seems a fitting painting today with the forceful spring weather this week.

What a charming work came into the gallery last week! I was drawn to the brush strokes, the rich colors, and the warm, golden light hitting the table on the left. But this painting is unsigned. I’m nosey. I wonder who did this painting? Was this a study done at the artist’s window? I imagine […]
