New Gallery!! - Art on a Whim
It was a beautiful day - the Aspen trees are changing color and fall is in the air.
The Art on a Whim galleries are beautiful. Here is what they say about themselves on their website - I couldn't have said it better myself:
Art on a Whim is a family-run business founded in Breckenridge Colorado. We opened our Breckenridge gallery in December of 2007, expanded our space in November of 2011 and opened our Vail location in November of 2013. Our galleries were founded with the belief that beautiful art and culture should be accessible to everyone. We're rooted in the age-old American tradition of small, family-run businesses. We really like our economy so all of our art is handmade in America and most of it is created right here in Colorado.
We focus on carrying work that is unique, well executed and fun. The art we show is original and contemporary. It is created by living, working, professional American artists. We prefer representational works that capture the beauty of the mountains we call home, as well as abstracts that push creativity to new heights. We specialize in representing emerging and mid-career artists with well regarded national and international reputations. Our refined selection of the best artists found in Colorado sees that our collection represents our region and our love for the mountains. We love color and art that makes us smile. This is always immediately apparent upon entering our galleries.Here is a photo of me and gallery owner/founder Dena Raitman from yesterday and a few of the sculptures in the Breckenridge gallery - as well as an outside photo of the gallery.
Mark and I are very happy that Alex Alvis Sculpture is now to be found by our collectors and future collectors at Art on a Whim and look forward to a great relationship with Dena, her husband, Michael and their sons, Brian and Ross. When you are in either town, hope you will stop in at one or both of these locations.
Art on a Whim is also putting my work into the Summit County Parade of Homes this weekend and the next - so if you want to do something really fun, get some tickets and go!
Hope you are enjoying your Saturday! Inspiration Sunday coming up!
