Pikes Peak Partnership Expresses Gratitude

It seems to be a common theme these days that non-profit charity organizations are dipping into reserves as contributions slow down, trying to do more with less. As a reminder, these organizations are counting on you to continue to help while their needs continue to grow. AutumnReflections24x24The Pikes Peak Partnership serves our community in so many ways helping those with multiple sclerosis, mental illness and physical disabilities.

On November 20, the PPP is hosting an Exclusive Donor and Volunteer Appreciation Reception at Hunter-Wolff Gallery to thank their past generous supporters and to encourage new support. Artist Katherine McNeill and Hunter-Wolff Gallery are offering a 30×30 aspen oil painting, “Autumn Reflection”, to stimulate donations during the evening. The painting will be offered to the top donor committing to $1800 or more during the Reception. If you have ever been a contributor or want to be a first-time contributor, call 719-520-9494 and we will make sure you receive a personal invitation to this important event or just show up and tell the host you saw this Blog and wanted to help.

Americans With A Heart

No one likes to think about illness, especially the #1 killer in America. However, heart disease kills more than 870,000 Americans annually — men, women and children.  Maybe you know someone who suffers from heart disease or someone who was taken prematurely from your world because of cardiovascular disease.

Fighting this disease is a tough battle and takes immense dedication and the generosity of many. Every donation is important.

Tartan30x30To show their gratitude to their past supporters, the American Heart Association hosted an Exclusive Donor Appreciation Reception at Hunter-Wolff Gallery this week. It was a special evening. Although everyone enjoyed a beautiful evening mingling and making new friends, it was reassuring to know so many people are caring and committed to helping others.  Topping the evening off, artist John Sherman (Colorado Springs Neuroradiologist) generously offered one of his paintings as an incentive to boost donations during the evening.  To help with the fight, all proceeds will go directly to the American Heart Association—and perhaps go towards saving another life (maybe even yours).  Remember, by helping the American Heart Association, it’s possible to enjoy a healthier life free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.  But their mission depends on volunteers and funding from thoughtful people like you and me.

Cover_BestFinalLooking for a great gift to lift the spirits of a friend? If they happen to be a struggling artist, “Faith by Art—a lifeline to an artist’s life” will be a welcomed gift. It’s a beautifully illustrated book that explores the joys and pitfalls of a contemporary artist’s life and the lifeline she relied on in her quest to fulfill her destiny. This heart-felt story about Artist Katherine McNeill’s life includes page after page of images of her oil paintings covering three decades—Art by Faith. (111 pp, color illustrations, 11 x 8.5, hard cover).
Through a blend of poetry, scripture, images and life accounts, this true story offers readers, a positive outlook for a positive outcome. In an intimate collection of short stories in a chronological format, she shows how love and determination is the fuel that enables the impossible, why faith inspires personal growth, how social customs affect our interactions, and how setting positive examples for our children create a solid foundation for a more enriched life.

What makes this book different from other biographies is how it is presented from the perspective of a fighter – a woman filled with courage and deep conviction for accomplishment and success in a competitive field of art. She is compelled to act under the guidance of her Christian faith and supported at every turn by the love of her family and art collectors. This short, pictorial book speaks volumes about self-determination, self-enlightenment and unwavering commitment.

Art by Faith will be available for sale from Hunter-Wolff Gallery. Signed copies by the artist available upon request.

If you panicked when you learned Calabash was closing, you can relax because we brought the highly coveted Murphy Originals collection from Calabash to Hunter-Wolff Gallery. When the former Calabash gallery owner Sandy Murphy announced she was closing her gallery, it came as a blow to our small business community. But operating a business and working as a full-time Jewelry Designer while balancing family and home is exhausting and challenging—there are only so many hours in the day.  Sandy is an accomplished jewelry designer and her work needed her full attention.  Now she focuses on her design and fabrication work and relies on Hunter-Wolff Gallery to reach you.SM-011L

For those who value high-quality metalsmithing, you will appreciate the innate grace and elegance, interesting shapes, textures, colors and impeccable workmanship in Murphy Originals. Designer Sandy Murphy incorporates clean lines, soft curves, and geometric shapes for sophisticated results. Her pieces often feature 22-karat gold accents, sterling silver, fine pearls and/or one or more gemstones, where the right color combination defines the overall design impact. Even her smallest scale pieces with subdued colors create a “head-turning” reaction.Titanium Druzy & Pearl

Do you love glamour and are ready for something special? Then check out her popular silver pieces with druzy, where the tiny, eye-catching crystals sparkle and glisten.  For more universal everyday wear, many designs are suitable for both casual and eveningwear. These pieces incorporate traditional elements that together create a classic look with a fresh new edge and are meant for the woman who isn’t afraid to have some fun with her jewelry while turning heads. Murphy Originals are engaging and really do turn heads!”
