A Window to A Dream

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?

Homage to Earle

Homage to Earle-Deep Shadows

Eyvind Earle’s work inspired many artist during his lifetime and continues today.  As a young boy at age 10, he started his life’s work as an artist.  Although he passed in 2000, at the age of 84, his work lives on. You have seen his work, if not original pieces, certainly prints and limited editions, and even greeting cards.  He was a prolific artist creating unique paintings, sculptures, scratchboards, watercolors and drawings that have not been publicly seen or exhibited. Eyvind Earle Publishing LLC, under the specific instruction of the late Eyvind Earle, will continue the legacy of the artist, promoting and introducing new serigraphs and books through galleries worldwide. To learn more about this amazing artist go to: http://www.eyvindearle.com/Bio.aspx

You can see how he inspired contemporary Colorado artist, Clifford T. Bailey.  The style and mood of Bailey’s work  might make you think they studied together.  We are very excited to be able to present the work of Clifford T. Bailey and his “Homage to Earle, Deep Shadows”.  Could they have studied together?

UPDATE:  No, they did not study together, but Clifford did meet Eyvind Earle when he was 14 years old and several times during his youth.  It was Mr. Earle who influenced Clifford Bailey’s pursuit of art and becoming an artist.  After seeing the master’s work, there was no turning back for Clifford. THIS PAINTING SOLD IN LESS THAN 30 minutes after arriving in the gallery on December 2.

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

Lost in Watercolors

Vernazza Cinque, Terra Italy

All it takes is a slight change in temperature and that chill in the air makes me think of deep blue water, white beaches, and sunny skies.  When you cannot drop everything and leave town for your dream vacation, you can easily take a side trip and get lost in a Bruce White watercolor.

Bruce White takes his viewer to the edge of the water, where it is easy to get lost in the pounding surf. Being an avid traveler, he isn’t stingy with “dream-vacation” subject matter and keeps his collection interesting with exciting destinations.  It is easy to leave home and visit the Amalfi Coast, or the slopes of Colorado.  If you have ever been to these places, you can revisit anytime your mind begins to drift …..

We love having Bruce White’s watercolors at Hunter-Wolff Gallery because they add a bold splash of color and  help me think about sailing away on my next vacation plans.

Meet Bruce at his first Hunter-Wolff Gallery Opening, Friday, December 2 from 5-8 pm.

Winning Awards

California Memory by Clifford T. Bailey

California Memory by Clifford T. Bailey

Everyone loves a pat on the back for a great effort. In the art world, awards are meaningful not only to the recipient but to collectors too. Collectors especially like to keep “score” of the accomplishments by their favorite artists.  It adds to the provenance and value for artwork.

Among the 30-some artists at Hunter-Wolff Gallery there are hundreds of awards.  Some of our more experienced artists have received dozens and dozens over the course of their career.  Clifford T. Bailey, for example, continues to receive awards even after nearly 40 years of a proven track record. One might think, “does it really matter at this stage?”  Absolutely.  Validation is always important and shows different generations value his work and the measurement for excellence is as important today as it was yesterday.

Clifford just received the welcomed news from the Miniature Art Society of Florida that all his entries for the upcoming 37th Annual International Miniature Art Show were accepted and that he won First Place in the Landscape category.  The show will be held January 15 – February 5 2012. Because this particular show is one of the biggest and best miniature shows in the country, competition comes from all over the world.

Congratulations Clifford!  Your work is tops in my book too.

A Rose for You

The Rose, 4x6

How does one explain the ability of a self-taught painter like Clifford T. Bailey?

It is like trying to explain the beautiful voice of 9-year-old Jackie Evancho.
It’s simply exciting to find these wonder-stars.  They are gifts we are lucky to receive. Like Jackie, Clifford Bailey quickly became one of my favorite artists. The fact that he is self-taught just amazes me.  His small still life works are reminiscent of the Old Masters in their technique with contrasting dark and light tones.  At Hunter-Wolff Gallery’s Anniversary event last evening, his small collection of perfectly rendered apples and pears created a stir along with his landscapes.  Everyone just loved his work. Now he is finishing another new painting of  a flawless single rose to add to the collection.  What will he do next?
If you love small paintings, he has several 4×6 and 5×7 framed still life works along with 8×10 landscapes you might consider.

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.

Collecting Mixed Media Collage Paintings

Pale Iris, 14x18 by Sally Hegarty

It’s not a surprise to find oil, watercolor and pastel paintings in most collectors’ art collections.  But what about collecting mixed media collage?

Finding an outstanding fine artist who works with mixed media may be a little more challenging.  Honestly, some mixed media collage paintings look a lot like arts and crafts and it takes a master to pull it all together for a fine art look.  If you plan to add quality artwork that is new and fresh to your collection, meet Sally Hegarty and discover why we would never consider her work “arts and crafts”.
Originally from Ireland, Sally and her family settled in Colorado where she studied printmaking, three dimensional art, painting, and drawing and became a freelance graphic designer.  While freelancing, she continued to develop her oil and watermedia painting skills. Today, she uses a combination of these skills for colorful mixed media collage paintings now on display at Hunter-Wolff Gallery along with 30-some other fine artists.

Stop Searching, Start Asking

Donna Gordon Custom Blown Glass

Have you been burning up hours searching and searching for a perfect painting or piece of artwork?

We often hear someone confess he/she has been looking for months—even years—for a painting to love for a specific location.  Years of searching might seem extreme, but we know you are out there.  Sometimes available space requires a certain dimension and other times lighting issues are factors that can be addressed in a custom piece. 

The solution is to identify an artist’s style of work you appreciate, then work with their representative.  Don’t be shy about asking for specific needs–whether it is size, color or shape. We have completed many custom requests and have many examples to show you. Most of Hunter-Wolff Gallery’s artists enjoy creating custom pieces based on client needs.  If you plan to place a piece of art in your home, why wait?  Stop searching, start asking, and get the ball rolling. 

You can have the art you love now!

Caution to the Wind

I admit I like throwing caution to the wind sometimes and just hopping in the car to see where it takes me—hopefully to an art exhibit. With gas prices, what they are today, most of us are more diligent in planning our outings, but you can visit us online anytime without spending a penny for  gas.  If you are saving your tank of gas for something more pressing—like getting back and forth to work—spend  as much time as you like viewing our newest art online. 

Early Morninig Market, 16x8 oil

Early Morning Market, 16x8

We just posted “Early Morning Market” and “Enchanted Ride” by Laura Reilly. You can own both these pieces for less than what it costs to buy a new bike today.  If you would like to see other works by Laura, just click and browse or stop in and tell us what type of art let’s you throw caution to the wind.
