Other People's Art
October 30, 2015
RiverView Gallery features a goodly number of artists. But artists also purchase art. In Other People's Art we provide an opportunity for member artists to "show and tell" about what they have acquired from their fellow artists represented in the Gallery – as well as area artists outsied the Gallery if they wish.
Adding to our Annegarn Chair and Bench People Collection
We didn't exactly begin acquiring these with a collection in mind, it just happened. When Nan saw this figure, the first man on a bench we've seen, she had to have it. The fact that it looks a little like Jim Hopkins – a very fondly remembered area artist, especially in the group shot below, might have had something to do with that. Figures are around five inches tall.
Admittedly one of the temptations with Maria's work, besides the fact that they all make a statement, is that they are temptingly priced. Most are two pieces, one three.
We noticed on our last trip to the Gallery that she has a couple of very nice, very tempting little bowls. Not what we normally expect from her, but they have a classy look and feel. As crowded as RiverView is, we always find some real gems.
