Inside Artisans On The Ave

A View through 3 rooms of Handmade art, fine crafts and wearable art pieces

 

Gallery Hours:
Open 7 days a week
Monday thru Saturday 11am – 9pm
Sunday 9am – 7pm

An artist is always thinking outside of the box. When we were young children in school, our art teacher told us to “Color within the lines”. True artists never listened to the rules. They explored their creativity outside of the boundaries!

artisansboxxedimg_2546
Artisans On The Ave is proud to showcase the talents of our artists who decided to think outside of the box. We are so glad they did. No matter what size a box is, an artist can fill it with their own handmade creations. As the old saying goes “Good things come in small packages”. We are proving that great art no matter what the medium or size, sometimes cannot be confined to a single box!

The art can’t wait to jump out of the four walls of the box that holds it and become part of your space. Explore the 3 full showrooms of the gallery and find the boxed art. Each artist has chosen a piece of work for their representation of “filling the box”. Some of the art fits into the box and others are bursting out of the sides to show you how original and unique each piece is.

After high school she received a National Scholastic Award of Merit from the St. Louis Art Museum.

Her painting style is photo realistic and semi abstract done in acrylics, mixed media and watercolor.
