Size Matters

Some say “size doesn’t matter”.  I disagree.  When collecting art, you should first and foremost, select what you love. Select pieces that move you and stir a special feeling. But, when it comes to displaying that art, place your wall pieces on a wall that is the right size for the artwork.  Large pieces need room to breath and smaller pieces can stand alone on a small wall or above a piece a furniture that doesn’t overpower it.  If you have a large wall begging for art, find a large-scale piece that makes a statement and fits your budget.  Don’t try to fill large wall spaces with tiny art.  It will look ridiculous.

Winesome 38x38For example, regional artist John Sherman loves to paint big and large-scale paintings like his need bigger spaces. John uses  bold blocks of color that make a big splash which also beg for room to breath. John loves to paint on large canvas and we love hanging them for you to see. Fans of expressionistic/impressionistic art find his work intriguing and irresistible.  It is hard to put a label on the style of his work.  It is highly stylized, textured with heavy paint and almost feels abstract within the subject matter. Even his medium is hard to describe because he mixes and blends so many types of ingredients and is hardly a traditional style of work.

He says, “I feel as though the red paint is my medium and within the layers of paint on the subject matter (which is often red trees) you can see another art form that is abstract.”  Realism mixed with abstract?  Interesting how he is able to balance these two elements for his own style–a style not taught in school but one that comes from practice and passion, and is as unique as the painter. But, these are perfect works of art for the big space that so many newer homes feature.

At Hunter-Wolff Gallery, we love styles that are outside the box, and we love big too. Let us know about your unique style and how you display various sizes you collect.

Different styles of art draw us in for different reasons. Colorado artist John Sherman‘s highly textured mixed medium paintings draw viewers in for a closer look at the texture and vibrant color. Having represented John for a decade, Hunter-Wolff Gallery can assure you his many paintings sold through the gallery were based on his vibrant RED colors. Since John Sherman started created his “red tree” paintings, he always blends his bold colors with warm gold background. So Rich! Although John has experimented for a number of years with other beautiful combinations from the color wheel, his fans always come back and ask about his red trees. Now John is working non-stop to deliver what his fans want …. more red trees.  Stand by, there is something new with his latest collection and we are predicting an even bigger fan club after his newest collection is released over the course of this fall.

Here are several new pieces for your comment.  We love the explosion of color and expressionistic style and hope you do too.

Miles of Smiles

Hunter-Wolff Gallery Celebrates 7 Years in Colorado Springs

Today Hunter-Wolff Gallery celebrated its 7th year anniversary in style. We ate cake, drank wine and made new friends. A steady flow of visitors and guests mingled for hours meeting artists, enjoying new work, learning about art, and buying some irresistible one of a kind wonders. There is nothing like celebrating a major milestone with friends and fans–seven years of working together, making clients happy and seeing the results on our artists’ faces.

Without the dedication of these hard working men and women (and those who were unable to attend), there would be no gallery.  There would be no smiles and no happy clients.  I am overjoyed to know each and every one of the talented people in this photo and the other members of the gallery.  We have 35 artists and a hardworking staff all of whom contribute to the gallery.  Together they bring so much to our community and to my life.

I hope you get to meet some of these  incredible people or at least get to see the results of their talent, skill and dedication.  They will enrich your life, like they enriched mine. From left to right, Katherine McNeill, Tom Donaldson, Dian Calkins, Ken Shanika (hat), William Rasch, Jeanine Potter, Karen Pierce, Marc Jenesel, Larry Szabelski, Patience Heyl, Clifford Bailey.  Front row (sitting) Marlene Kort, Sharon Wolff, Ann Leago, and John Sherman.  We missed having all our artists together tonight but those missing were in our hearts and I know wished they could have been here.

There are few treasures like the beauty these individuals create and their friendship they offer.

Bringing award-winning fine art into your life has been my mission for the past 7 years and I hope it has made a difference in your life.  We look forward to hearing from you.
