We had the pleasure of visiting Ann Royer's Studio yesterday morning to pickup a few new works and to see some works in progress.
Looks like Ann is getting ready to do some bronze casting! She hasn't made these works in quite some time, so we are thrilled to be seeing current happenings for future offerings at the gallery.

Welcome Kristina Fjellman to the Gilded Pear roster of artists!
Kristina is a visual artist and performer from Minneapolis, and will also be serving as our juror for upcoming Juried Exhibit: Framework.
"The contradiction between static imagery and movement becomes central to my compositions. By using sheer fabric and paper, I explore how light and shadow becomes part of that movement. The fabric creates an organic, somewhat simple abstraction of the original image or theme, while the bent wire relays a tension that cannot be duplicated on canvas. This work explores the scope of textures, colors, shapes and compositions in the vast expanse of the night sky."....READ MORE

We fell in love with Randy Richmond's still life photography while working on a residential project! Stop by the gallery to see what we have left. Visit his site page HERE to see his Fictional Cabinet Cards.
"I typically use a satin matte glaze to enhance the softness of a form, which also allows for the development of interesting shadows that enhance the altered surface. These satin matte glazes are often pleasing to touch."
Cups, bowls, and serving vessels will be in the gallery next week! Perfect timing for last minute holiday gifts. Check out the rest of John Giesin's work HERE.
Welcome Crit Streed to the Gilded Pear roster of artists!
"My work is the essence of a sentient process used to survey recollection, place and sensation. It is a visual language to make an invisible reality tangible enough to arouse a moment of connection. It is nature, the nature of things and our own organic fragility, insecurity and persistence." For more on Crit, click here.
Karen Kurka Jensen just sent us these beauties! For as high as the Heavens are above the Earth diptych would be a magnificent addition to anyone's home! Check out the rest of Karen's work here.
