VG016 VG018 VG019When we have great news about a new artist, it is simply impossible not to tell everyone we know.  It’s like finding out you are having a baby.  You just can’t keep it a secret.

This past January, I found Vicki Grant’s wonderful work in another gallery when I was vacationing in Florida.  Remember her name because you will be seeing and hearing a lot about her and her work. Although we would love to have you meet her soon, it will likely be the fall when she can travel to Colorado. Keep checking our posts and website for information about her visit.

Where does she get such creative ideas? First, her background includes having studied Architecture at the University of Maryland School of Architecture. With more than 25 years experience as an architect and artist, she naturally creates a visual experience that engages the viewer both intellectually and emotionally. When you see her work in person, you will understand what this means. She says,  she “always felt that the most amazing forms, structure, color and textures are found within nature and that exposure to these elements have been her inspiration and teacher”.

When she sits down to start a new work of art and her idea is in place, she transforms clay with her hands and tools to reflect the original conceptual thought. After firing the clay, oil pigments are hand applied, layer after layer, until the final patina of rich hues is achieved. She then embellishes her shapes with porcupine quills, fossils, stones, feathers, wood and shells. The results are always unique and truly engaging.

When you want something incredibly stimulating to add to your art collection, consider Vicki Grant’s colorful shapes on slate. Hunter-Wolff Gallery currently carries two sizes, 12×12 and 6×6.  They are filled with surprises and textures inviting your touch.
