Window Treatment, Marlene Kort

We can look inward and outward and examine various aspects of ourselves, but with art we can find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.

Music, dance and visual arts have that affect especially when we take time to open our ears, eyes and heart.

When I look at this 14 x 11 pastel by Marlene Kort, “Window Treatment” I imagine myself visiting a small village in Europe where people are friendly, the streets are narrow, and there is the pervasive scent of flowers and food—there is an abundance of well-cared for flowers overflowing window boxes and planters at the doorway to greet visitors.  It is easy to feel welcomed with that sort of greeting. I like being here.

Where does this painting take you?

Velvet Obsidian in Silver by DKC Jewelry

Pendants in Silver or Copper

Silver or Copper Pendants by DKC Jewelry

John Keats said it best, “A thing of beauty is a joy forever: its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness.”

I believe this is why woman understand a good piece of jewelry doesn’t just feel good now, but will last a lifetime, and it will increase in its loveliness through time.  And, if the piece is handed down to a daughter or granddaughter, the feeling of giving a good piece of jewelry to someone you love is just as important.  Remember, whether your piece is from Tiffany’s or made by a local artisan, you should love it and the piece should be the best quality you can afford. It is much better to have several good pieces that you can wear with nearly everything, than dozens of costume jewelry that will someday end up part of a kid’s Halloween costume.
Check out the exclusive line of wearable art by DKC Jewelry now at Hunter-Wolff Gallery.  The intricate designs and wiring around the stones are delicate and tasteful.  Women, who love style, will enjoy the look of these pieces  whether in their jeans or evening gown, and how they make a lady feel special!

2012 Butterflies & Friends Help Kids

February 17, 2012 in Art,Art Gallery,Artists,Butterflies & Friends,Colorado,Hunter-Wolff Gallery,Paintings | Comments (0)

Several years ago I met a wonderful philanthropic Rotarian from Colorado.  He isn’t only involved in our community, he is passionate about seeing results for the Butterflies & Friends project  to help the community—an initiative created by The Rotary Club of Colorado Springs to raise awareness and funds to serve children and promote the arts in schools. I was hooked on this project from the first time I met Tony.

If I were an artist, I would likely spend a year of my time creating something spectacular and then lining up the buyer for the artwork so all the kids in Colorado Springs had the funds they need to achieve important goals.

Take a minute and visit http://www.artsandfriends.org/.  If you are an artist, you have about a month to prepare your application.  This is a juried event and the proceeds benefit the development of young children. Funds are used to provide community-building arts programs in schools that are facing major transitions and changes. These children are all our children and need to see that we care. With all of the economic challenges that families are facing, the “butterfly” is an excellent metaphor.  Spread this important information to your artist friends and mark your calendar for the Auction in September at the Cheyenne Resort Hotel.
