Michael Flohr - Contemporary Impressionistic Art

We are excited to announce the addition of artist Michael Flohr to our gallery. Michael is a young artist from San Diego, CA that is taking the west coast by storm! We will be receiving our first shipment in about 2 weeks that will be artist enhanced giclees. His original paintings sell in minutes and limited edition giclees in weeks.

Michael Flohr's paintings are a patchwork of avant-garde, impressionistic color exhibiting a stylistic fortitude that succeeds in redefining impressionism and abstract expressionism. Depicting ordinary moments in extraordinary ways, Flohr's work displays an artistic mastery of color, perspective, technique and vision. "I have a huge passion to record humanity on canvas, the good and the bad, it is all beautiful to me."

Watch our windows for this exciting new artist!

Elizabeth Buckley Show - Save the date of Friday, Sept. 19th, 5-8 p.m.

We are happy to announce that Elizabeth Buckley will be in the gallery for an art show this fall! We will kick off the show, entitled "People and Such" with a Meet the Artist Reception on Friday evening, September 19, 2008 from 5-8 p.m. We invite everyone who loves her work to join us for food, wine and talking with Elizabeth about the inspiration for her art.
Elizabeth is working very hard after attending a painting workshop earlier this year in Texas. There she found a new creative energy for capturing the essence of people in their surroundings. Yesterday she sent me a wonderful image that she just finished that will be in the show. You are getting a sneak peek of"A Man and His Boy." We will keep you posted!

Framing The Gear!

Mike had a framing challenge when one of our great customers brought in a bicycle gear cast in steel - that he wanted to frame and hang on the wall. Mike and I came up with a frame design to accentuate the gear itself....but Mike had to study for a while to engineer a strong package to hold the weight of the gear. It turned out great and the customer was thrilled!

St. Joseph Gallery Walk

Mike and I have had the pleasure to work with Jeff Murphy at St. Joseph Hospital and Emily Shrider, of Lexarts in the soon to be unveiled Gallery Walk. Last year, the hospital put out a call for Kentucky artists to submit works for consideration. An amazing collection of original art has been purchased to be on display in the common areas of the hospital. The works cover a wide range of art forms, including art glass, photography, sculpture, and paintings in styles from folk art to modern.

Some of the art required framing and we have worked on that over the winter. We are now preparing to hang all of the pieces in areas around the waiting rooms and main corridors for the reception to recognize the artists and show off the new renovation. We are very honored to be part of this project that showcases some of the finest of our local talent. We will keep you posted on our progress!
