Frank Lloyd Wright said it best, “The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen.”
Believing is the first step to achievement, and then it is all about hard work, focus, integrity, and surrounding yourself with the best people you can find. At Hunter-Wolff Gallery we always look for the best artists to represent and do the best for them to meet their goals and our own business goals. Achieving recognition like “Best of the Springs” is meaningful and humbling. We thank all the Gazette voters and believers in Hunter-Wolff Gallery for their approval and continued support. Thank you for reminding us you are always there watching and judging.
Making Customers Happy
Sometimes it only takes a single image to spur a decision. That is exactly what often occurs at Hunter-Wolff Gallery when we publish our monthly newsletters filled with images, or send a image via email to a customer based on his/her interest. It helps when we know what you like and when you communicate your interests. Servicing customers based on their interests is a win-win-win. You get what you like, artists are rewarded for their creativity, and the gallery continues to do what it does best . . . satisfy a special desire for original artwork.
For example, we have been working with Barbara for a number of years and placed numerous paintings and other beautiful artwork in her home. She recently shared that she wanted multiple pieces that could be grouped together but not necessarily by the same artist. Barbara saw an image of the raku and fiber sculpture by Karen Pierce and Marc Jenesel on the day it arrived in the gallery. The next day Barbara owned it. We were fairly certain the piece would meet her request: she wanted unique multi-medium sculpture that highlighted colors she wanted to bring into her space. She was upfront from the start about her budget and what she wanted her space to look like. We then scoped out potential pieces, including a blown-glass platter and several floral paintings for her grouping. She liked all our recommendations and made her decision.
Sometimes it takes an in-home trial of a piece to get the perfect artwork. Selecting and investing in artwork takes some decision-making, but it is always helpful to us if we understand your needs, likes and budget. We want you to have what you like, not what we like, and we want you to enjoy it for a lifetime. Tell us what you want and we will get busy helping you.
There is a definite buzz on the Avenue. The 2012 ArtWalk season is about to start, April 6 at 5pm – 8pm. Brochures are printed, banners are hung, new artwork has arrived. And, the weather is perfect for strolling the Avenue to explore 17 galleries and more than a dozen open artist’s studios.
For those who have yet joined us during ArtWalk, put it on your calendar today. Hunter-Wolff Gallery will have live demonstrations each month. This month, you will witness Gary Vigen in action creating delicate paintings on stained glass surfaces. These lovely gems are really landscapes created out of all glass; glass fused to glass for a new twist on wall art. Stop in and ask questions!
