Ask someone what they think of a piece of original art and you will hear the unexpected. Everyone has an opinion and each is as unique as the individual.  So how do you know what makes a painting good? What is it about original art that is so captivating? Why do some paintings have a profound effect on the viewer and you can’t live without it?

As an art lover and gallery owner, I hear these questions frequently. Knowing the elements that make an original painting award-winning is key to building a beautiful collection that you will enjoy for a lifetime.

Come learn with us and be part of the circle of friends at Hunter-Wolff Gallery and learn what others only pretend to know.  Hear what one of our expert artists, Marlene Kort, says about choosing the best art you can afford. She will discuss how 2-D paint surfaces become a work of art and specifically how she achieves this with the pastel medium.  Elements of design and composition are like a roadmap unfolding the narrative of a good piece of art. These principles will apply to any form of art, decorating or design, and Marlene will point out tips that will make you a more knowledgeable collector and help you develop a better appreciation for original art.

Creativity is invigorating, come get inspired and take an artistic journey with Marlene at Gallery Talk: Connecting with Collectors Saturday, April 24, 2-4 pm.  Limited seating; call 719-520-9494 to reserve a seat.  It’s fun learning about art and it’s free.
