Beauty from Devastation

BLKFtreeThe last two years have been trying for many Coloradans in the Colorado Springs area because of terrible wildfires.  At the time, it was hard not to think constantly about all the devastation and wonder how people directly affected would get through it.  The summer of 2014 is quite different for most residents in this area because of better weather conditions and lots of rain—almost daily.  But it is still hard to see the thousands of burned trees and chared hillsides where the flora and fauna once flourished.

Out of all that devastation, a creative artist and woodturner named Vinny Luciani at Hunter-Wolff Gallery has taken something so horrible and made something beautiful.  With salvaged Ponderosa Pine from the 2013 Black Forest fire, he makes lovely little tree ornaments.  His little trees include burned and unburned sections of the tree and are accented with crushed turquoise from one of Colorado’s turquoise mines in Cripple Creek.  These little jewels are a reminder of how quickly our natural resources can be devastated and how important it is to stay hopeful about the future.

We hope you have a safe summer and always return to find the home you love exactly the way you left it.  More information about Vinny Luciani’s Christmas tree ornaments can be found at our website or by calling 719-520-9494 during normal business hours.

The Secret’s Out

We’ve been excited before when we discover an artist we think you should know about. But, there is something different about our latest discovery, Clifford T. Bailey. I only met him two days ago and I already have told dozens of friends and you too need to see this accomplished artist’s work.  He’s not your average or just above average artist-—-he’s what every artist hopes to accomplish.  Great. Sometimes it takes time to get out the good news but as soon as art-lovers see his work, it won’t take long.

While getting out the word and showing his current offerings at Hunter-Wolff Gallery, you can expect to see and hear more about Clifford T. Bailey regularly.  He’s been painting for nearly 40 years but tucked away up in Greeley Colorado.  We are now unleashing the secret that Greeley has been keeping for years. Here’s a sampling of what we just hung on the wall and based on two days of interest from visitors, we expect he will have to get busy to paint more pieces for us soon.
