Susan Burke, "Passion"

Susan Burke, “Passion”

Susan Burke:
My paintings are my form of communication. I am not attempting to reproduce nature; but I am interpreting the emotions that the subject spur in me.
http://osgsart.com/susan-burke-2d-

Emmanuel Gonzales, "Nevermore"

Emmanuel Gonzales, “Nevermore”

Emmanuel Gonzales:
My art strives to deconstruct the complex social fabric of America: a nation made up of outsiders looking in and insiders looking out.
http://osgsart.com/emmanuel-gonzales-2d-

 

Pamela Atcheson Meyers, "Venice in the Rain"

Pamela Acheson Myers, “Venice in the Rain”

Pamela Acheson Myers:
I have had a non-stop love affair with watery vistas and the reflections they create, all over the world, from Newport to the Florida Keys to Venice (Italy) to the fjords of Chile. For me, every one of these views is a magic moment, a natural canvas of colors and reflections existing only in the moment.
http://osgsart.com/pamela-acheson-myers-2d-

 

Squier, "Lotus Field"

Loren Squier, “Lotus Field”

Loren Squier:
I have four major influences that can be seen clearly when viewing my art. They are the ocean, comic books, Japanese wood block prints, and all the beautiful graffiti all over the world.
http://osgsart.com/loren-squier-2d-

 

Trujillo, "Conquista

Edward Trujillo, “Conquista”

Edward Trujillo:
The cultural influences of family and the history of the Land of Enchantment meld into the expressions of my art…  The confluence of spirits of the past and the land that cradles them are expressed in my art.

TRR:  Tells us about your vision for the new business.

JC:

 

It means that our wonderful furniture and accessory consignment store is transforming into a store with great furniture, accessories and now gallery space for all types of art.  We are renting the walls for 2D art  and cabinet space and/or floor space for 3D art and jewelry.  Plus we have large spaces available for rent for studio space.

TRR NOTE:   These larger spaces could also become a little shop within a store which is how Jana Costa, the new owner, started out.

JC:  

 

The store will provide an opportunity for artists to show their art in room vignettes which are professionally designed.  As an artist and interior decorator, I will be sure the space will reflect all styles and types of furnishings mixed eclectically with art, jewelry and hand created items.
