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.
