Preparing for ArtWalk might sound like time-consuming, hard work for the galleries but we are having so much fun we hardly notice.  Ina few days, you will see the results of our fun.  This year’s ArtWalk begins April 1  and includes 13 different locations in Old Colorado City.  Not only canArtWalkers enjoy new collections and meet new artists at some of their old favorite spots, but also they will get to explore some new ArtWalk hosts to get the art mojo moving.

Blown Glass by Donna Gordon

So what’s new at Hunter-Wolff Gallery? Laura Reilly has several new pieces, capturing what she is so good at— painting street scenes. If you can’t visit Paris this year, you might have to bring Paris home with you. There is nothing like springtime in Paris and her Paris street scenes will  whisk you away in a second. Donna Gordon also delivered a large collection of new glasswork— all free-flowing, fresh colors and irresistible.   Patience Heyl has been spending time working with live models and bringing the human form out of the shadows and into the light. She really makes magic happen on her canvas.  There are oodles more to explore.

You are going to find your own favorites and will get jazzed up on being entertained while getting hooked as an ArtWalker.   Veteran ArtWalkers can tell you, “it’s the best way to feed your soul and get your fill of creative energy.” 

Stop by between 5 pm and 8 pm, and we will have a chat about your favorites.

2.25" x 2.25" x 2.25" Glass Box

Do you ever wonder why glass draws your attention even when you are not looking for it?  Could it be the color, texture or maybe just the process it takes to create it?  Check out these three forms of glass at Hunter-Wolff Gallery:  blown glass by Donna Gordon, fused glass by Dan Hewett and, most recently, crystal glass achieved through the lost wax method of casting by Hibri Glass.

These newest offerings are limited edition (47% lead glass) crystal boxes, with removable lids and  textured patterns in soft pastel colors.  Pick from soft powder blue, amber, lavender and a host of other colors.  At close inspection, each delicately designed box is accented with connecting patterns of figures.  The boxes feature Haida motifs of the Northwest Canadian Indians with interlocking totem animals.

 We are anxious to learn what our glass collectors think and welcome feedback on these uniquely hand-crafted glassworks that take an indeterminable amount of time to design and craft. For glass collectors looking for something slightly different and functional, we think you will find these little gems perfect for a gift—for someone special or for yourself.  Glass is always a welcomed treasure in every collection.

Best of the Best in Colorado Springs

2011Best_Style_tnIsn’t it an honor to receive special recognition regardless of your mission? You and possibly a team of people, put effort into a plan and focus every day for excellence.  When outsiders recognize these efforts, singing praises, it is a humbling experience.  Like any other gallery in any other community, Hunter-Wolff Gallery is open to scrutiny and criticism by individuals and organizations every day.

That’s why it is important to always be at the top of your game. There’s no room for mediocrity or dissatisfied clients. It’s hard work pleasing the world around you, but making the effort has its rewards.  Yesterday, Colorado Springs Style magazine issued their 2011 Luxury Edition by identifying the “Best of the Best” in a variety of categories including “Best Small Gallery”. Being recognized by this particular magazine is a true honor. Having the opportunity to sit at the thrown with so many other prestigious “best” organizations is the reward we work for everyday.  With dozens of small galleries dotting the landscape of Colorado Springs, we are thrilled to receive this honor.  It shows hard work pays many dividends.

Thanks to all who voted for us and recognized the quality collections at Hunter-Wolff Gallery and efforts of its individual artists and staff. We hope you too are the best in your world.
