With 15 venues along Colorado Avenue, from 23rd to 27th Streets, you will find something to peak your interests. Hundreds of artists exhibit work and there is no shortage of styles and techniques.

Colorado Avenue, ArtWalkers have the opportunity to meet many artists.  On April 3, David Newton, Justin Clements, Gina Grundemann, Gary Vigen, Marlene Kort, and many others will be available to answer questions.  Selling art is their livelihood and we can’t think of a better way to support artists than to come prepared to fall in love with original art and take it home to admire in your own home.

Hunter-Wolff Gallery will also have staff on hand to help guide you through the gallery if needed and point you in the direction for the next discovery along W. Colorado Avenue.

What do you think of these examples of art work being shown at Friday, April 3 ArtWalk?

How Did They Do That?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWith more than 30 years experience in visual media, Marc Jenesel is a graphic artist and animator but dedicates every available moment for his passion creating Raku. His signature pots, ‘Glow Pots’, truly glow from the interior and the first response seeing them in person is, “Is there a candle in there?”.

No candles, trick lighting or any other  light sources are added to make Marc’s Glow Pots glow.   They are beautifully created by an accomplished potter, Marc Jenesel, then fired at 1800 degrees, removed from the kiln at their maximum temperature, cooled and embellished with layers of copper leaf which catch the ambient light fork a beautiful soft glow.  Before bringing his finished products to Hunter-Wolff Gallery, there are a number of steps in between, quality control checks are made and only perfect pots are delivered. The waiting is well worth it.

Through his science background and experience, he is able to obtain the range of textures and glaze colors using chemistry and post-firing reduction. He explains, “Much of my education is in the sciences. I believe art and science run parallel. As science has become more abstract and out there, so has art. I think a well-rounded education in the arts requires some study of the sciences.” His results are remarkable and formulated for rich color and texture before they are made available to collectors. Stop in and visit Hunter-Wolff Gallery in Old Colorado City, Colorado Springs, and discover how Marc creates Raku pottery like no other potter.

Marc Jenesel Raku

Have you ever experienced that inner glow? It comes from happiness and starts deep in the inner core.  Marc Jenesel creates his raku pottery with a special glow that starts at the inner core of his vessels to reflect a warm amber glow even in the dark.  It is impossible to miss.

Don’t be surprised if you become mesmerized by the inner glow, and become drawn to these unique pots even if they have never given thought to pottery as a form of art.  Many fans tell us that they have never purchased pottery or considered Raku until they see these special Glow Pots by Colorado potter Marc Jenesel.

There are several basic elements interior designers recommend to create a special look and feel in your home, and we think adding a Glow Pot will put your “look” over the top.

You might also consider a Glow Pot for a gift for someone special as a way to say, “You are my inner glow.”  Art can speak volumes when words are difficult and we know from experience that these special gems will get your message across.

Visit Hunter-Wolff Gallery and check our website for new arrivals.  You can always request a “hold” for something you see online until you can visit in person.

Two-Way Communication

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.
