Skyward by Jennifer Vranes

Typically art galleries paint their walls white, beige or pale gray for their display walls to keep the focus on the artwork. But, at home, add extra pizzazz by doing just the opposite and use rich, intense color on your walls. If you make color your focal point and first impression, even those tatty pieces you can’t wait to replace will become less noticeable.

Colored walls also compensate for poor architectural details. If you have beautiful moldings, trim, niches or built-ins, your walls look great in most any color. Some architectural designs are better in whites and beiges but the use of bold color to distract the eye can create something special where the builder didn’t.

If your room gets lots of sun and sometimes feels “too warm”, cool it down by painting the walls with a cool color. Likewise, if your room feels too frosty, warm it up with a warm paint color. The way we perceive a room affects the way we feel, and you can balance the extremes with the right color and the right art work.

Picking the Right Wall Color for Your Art

What color would you paint your wall, if hanging this painting in a "frosty" room?

It isn’t unusual for art galleries to choose white, beige or pale gray backgrounds for their display walls to keep the focus on the artwork. But, at home, if your art and furnishings aren’t as fine as a gallery, do just the opposite and use rich, intense color on your walls. If you make color your focal point and first impression, those tatty pieces you can’t wait to replace will become less noticeable.

Colored walls also compensate for poor architectural details. If you have beautiful moldings, trim, niches or built-ins, your walls look great in most any color. Some architectural designs are better in whites and beiges but the use of bold color to distract the eye can create something special where the builder didn’t.

If your room gets lots of sun and sometimes feels “too warm”, cool it down by painting the walls with a cool color. Likewise, if your room feels too frosty, warm it up with a warm paint color. The way we perceive a room affects the way we feel, and you can balance the extremes with the right color and the right art work.

When you are ready to replace your “less-than-fine” artwork, visit Hunter-Wolff Gallery in person and bring the color chips you used to paint your walls so we can help you find “more-than-fine” artwork.

Ramp Up With Color

Clearing, 18x24 John Sherman

Different styles of art draw us in for different reasons. John Sherman’s highly textured mixed medium paintings draw viewers in for a closer look at the texture and vibrant color. Having represented John for the past six years, I can assure you his many paintings sold through Hunter-Wolff Gallery were based on his vibrant RED color. For more than a decade he has produced “red trees” typically on a warm gold background.  But, then John had a “moment” this past fall near his home in the Rocky Mountains and it has unlocked a more colorful, multi-dimensional work of art.

 

Here are several new pieces for your comment.  We love the explosion of color and expressionistic style and hope you do too.

John Sherman’s original art is available for purchase at Hunter-Wolff Gallery.  Visit us for a closer look.

The Edge, 48x30 John Sherman

I can’t help myself; I’m simply a blabber-mouth. When we have great news, it is just impossible for me to keep quiet.  Bloggers are the first to hear the news about one of the finest Colorado artists joining our gallery.  Fran Dodd.  It’s been in the works for months now and finally we are so close, I can’t wait any longer. Remember her name because you will be seeing and hearing a lot about her.  The media will officially receive our news next week for release on May 1, followed by an Opening Reception to the public on May 7. Fran will be available in person to greet guests and unveil her “Color Me Beautiful” collection of oils and pastels. Several from the collection are on the website and available for pre-release sale. The savvy collectors will beat you to the punch so hurry to check it out.

 Why is she so special and creating a stir?  Just look at her art and you need to know little else.  She is a well-decorated artist. If you are looking for her credentials, we have them, but look at her art and who cares about credentials? If I lost all my senses except sight, I would be more than blessed to have her work in my world.  It is powerful.  It lights up your world. It sends you to a happy place. It makes you want more. Only those who have an affinity for black and white (the absence of any color) could disagree.  I invite you to share your reactions after you visit her work.
