Artist Janelle Cox with A Happy Collector

Everyone wants to be happy and have good health.  You can find all kinds of articles on how happiness affects your health.  How you define your own happiness and what makes you happy might be different from others, but we know happy when we see it at the gallery.

Dale from Colorado Springs had been saving up for this beautiful oil painting and planned to buy it before someone else got it.  And the day he picked it up, he was thrilled to learn the artist, Janelle Cox, was in town for a special Opening reception.  It seemed like everyone was super-happy on this occasion.

By the way, Dale was smart because he saved for the down-payment, and then made sure the painting was his by placing it on layaway so he would not risk losing it while he saved for the balance.  You too can acquire the art that makes you happy  by using our no-add cost layaway program.  Don’t let the good ones get away…layaway is so convenient and easy. Try it!

See how it made Dale smile?

Sizzling Summer Guest Artist

Transformed by the Journey

About every three months, Hunter-Wolff Gallery brings a new guest artist on board for a brief guest appearance.  This month, Ashley Dull from Minnesota joins us with her carefully molded textured oil paintings. Her landscapes with their sun-setting sky pull you in for a closer look. Is it a painting or photograph, people ask. Then a careful look lets you see how see covers her canvas with what looks like little peaks of thick colored frosting. But step back a few feet and the texture disappears and these nature-inspired scenes appear almost photographic, as though you could step into the scene and walk right down the path.

This under-30 year old artist is making a big splash in her home state and now invited into a number of galleries in Colorado. She recently explained her desire to reach more people and hear them say, “I wanna touch that. I wanna be there.” Then she goes on to explain her own inspiration, “When I am hiking in the woods, touching everything, enjoying the peace that nature brings – I want to put that [feeling] in my paintings. I want to make people feel good.”  Her work has been on our walls for only a week and everyone who visits, steps right up to her exhibit and do the wow-thing.  If you want a painting that makes you “want to be there” for a peaceful experience, then stop by for a close-up look at the Ashley Dull exhibit.

You will find it uplifting. That’s the feeling Ashley is hoping you feel.
