Winter 2013


The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection. ::: Michelangelo :::


Dear Art Lover,

LIVING PROOF, Sketches from Life - Currently on view Online and in the Gallery through Saturday December 21st with essential sketches of gesture, figures, clothing, expression, body language and more...

This month’s featured Artists are the explorer spirits of our Life Drawing workshop. With over 30 years of combined experience in portrait drawing, these courageous artists are allowing their work-in-progress to be viewed unaltered and unfinished.

We have fresh new Art Greeting Cards from Gallery Artists just in time for the Holiday Season.

After December, the on Location Gallery will be closed from January thru April 2014. 'Gallery Beyond Walls' our Online Gallery remains open to view and shop.

Life Drawing workshops are taking a break in December and will resume in mid-January on the 13th.

"...I would like to express my most sincere appreciation to all the Artists, Visitors and Volunteers, who are working so hard every day to explore our World and share in the creation of inspiring works. The compassionate and creative spirit of these Individuals who have a belief that an exploratory spirit which shines through artistic endeavors exists in each of us. Thank you so much and let’s keep working together supporting our partners in community in 2014."

We hope you will come to visit us often and that you keep your creative spirit shining....... Best wishes, Astrid.
