Last night was the last time for bidding at our 100 Artists show at the Mary Lou Zeek Gallery. We had many people standing and waiting to make those last minute bids on their favorite pieces. We are now counting up the votes for "Best of Show" for people's choice.....we'll let you know.
Our gallery is small but our vision is BIG! We are fortunate enough to connect clients with artists for special commissions. Kristin Kuhns recently completed a 5' x 8' painting for a client who lives in Eastern Oregon. These images really don't give the painting the justice it deserves...one of those, "you need to be there to see it for yourself". Well, we were and WE think it's fabulous.
These last few weeks have been 24/7 at the gallery and at home. Late night posting images online, creating a Blurb book, tagging each piece of art, keeping 100 art pieces organized, dusting and mopping the floors,; Shelley, Roz, Tina, Bonnie, MiKayla and Monica have all been a force over the last 6 months...these shows would not happen without their help. Also thanks to the "strong men" (Alan and Ted) for hanging shelves and keeping us all on task. Last,I do believe that this show is over the top and each and every artist has done a fabulous job, without their contributing and creating as they do...this show wouldn't exist...we can't wait for you to see. Stop in, call us with a bid and watch for pictures online, we'll keep you posted.
We represent Northwest artists working in a variety of media including painting, sculpture, works on paper, ceramics, jewelry and mixed media.
Our second gallery features exhibitions on a monthly basis, as well as selected group shows and special exhibitions. To arrange an appointment, please call 503-581-3229 or email; firstname.lastname@example.org
During our years of operating, we have successfully encouraged the broadening and blossoming of the Salem art scene. We are dedicated to serving our clients as well as our artists. The relationships that we cultivate with our clients and our artists have been and will continue to be long and rewarding. We encourage you to take the time to be acquainted with us and take the time to appreciate the art we enjoy so much.
