Happy Holidays Frida!

Frida Kahlo is the inspiration for this blog. Merry Christmas Frida!

Things are crazy busy here at the gallery. We do a ton of custom picture framing at Christmas time and we are deep into the rush. Playing Santa's helper is all I have time for over the next few days.

I plan to resume posting guest artists as soon as we get past the holidays.

Joel Blazer

Joel Blazer says -

"my name is joel blazer. i have been painting for a little over a decade now. in 1998 i saw an egon schiele book and was amazed at his style. i never new you could make the human figure look the way he made it look. so i started studying the human figure. that is pretty much all i did from 1998 till 2001. then i met some graffiti artists and was amazed off of their crazy lines and bright colors. in 2003 i was blessed with meeting and working for one of my favorite artists phil frost. he was living here in cincinnati at the time making a painting for a traveling art show called "beautiful losers" that was kick started at the cincinnati contemporary art center. i recieved an associates degree in graphic design for print a couple of years ago. i have exhibited my work in ohio, kentucky, indiana and new york. i dont have a formal website yet but you can see more work at just look under my pics section on my myspace page."

"Visitation" KV Abbott $600 SOLD

In this economy any time we sell a painting is cause for celebration. This painting is my most recent sale. The piece measures 26" X 26" including frame. I have always really liked this painting. I'm happy to see it go to a good home and what is becoming a very solid local art collection.
