Private Shopping Hour…

Private Shopping Hour

We are happy to announce our ‘Private Shopping Hour’ in the gallery. This new service is designed to give you, our customer that ‘one on one’ service that sometimes lacks when the gallery doors are open to the public. The ‘Private Shopping Hour’, will be set from 5-6 p.m. on any weekday* of normal gallery hours. (*prior commitments excluded)

Perfect for customers with multiple works of art to be framed. Great for those customers interested in personal time shopping for Christmas, Birthdays, Anniversary etc.

Just ask Sue and her mother Barbara, who have already taken advantage of this service and now have some of their Christmas shopping done. Forrest also took advantage of this service to view and purchase one of his favorite artists… ‘Howard Terpning’

valentine copy newsletter Give a ‘Gift’ from the Heart this Valentine’s Day.

Surprise that special someone the gift that keeps giving.

“Art from the Heart”. 

The language of ‘love’ comes in many forms.

1.’Flowers’, always a great option..give them the artwork of Mo Delvin, flowers that will never fade or die, just like your love.

2. ‘Poems’, can tell the story of love and desire…consider the artwork of Cassandra Barney, every work of art tells a story.

3. ‘Romance’, just one part of a great relationship… Nothing beats the artwork of Steve Hanks in that department.

4. ‘Humor’, because in every relationship, we all need to smile and laugh in order to thrive… and what better to have a laugh with but the artwork of Will Bullas.

The passing of a wonderful man… James Christensen

jim wall webIt is with profound sadness that we inform all of our customers and friends that artist, storyteller, master of imagination and dear friend

James Christensen passed away Sunday, January 8, 2017.

Jim’s work was popular in the gallery right from the very beginning. From Jim’s first show in 1998 to his last show in 2008 and all shows in between, Jim’s enthusiasm for art, storytelling and Boise were contagious. The kindness he showed each and everyone of his fans was proof of his gentle nature and big heart. We were fortunate to have Jim, his wife Carol, his daughters Cassandra and Emily all stay with us at one time or another. His love of Gino’s Restaurant, great conversation and wonderful sense of humor will always be some of our fondest memories.

R.I.P. 

Inspired by the world’s myths, fables and tales of imagination, James C. Christensen’s work adds up to more than a beautiful – if sometimes “curious” looking work of art. Having taught art professionally for over 20 years, he thought of the world as his classroom. His hope is that through whatever he creates — be it a porcelain, fine art print or book — he can convey a message, inspiration or a simple laugh. He believes that teaching people to use their imagination helps us find solutions to sooth the stresses of everyday life-or get a little lift to help us keep going. In short: all things are possible when you share Christensen’s philosophy that “Believing is Seeing.”

Look for our upcoming show honoring James, First Thursday in March.
