“The Ballerina” by Emily Walet

Local Dunedin artist, Emily Walet is delighted to share with you her painting titled, “The Ballerina.”

ballerina

Emily decided to make art her life at the early age of eight when she saw her first image on an Impressionist painting in a school textbook. On that day she created her first drawing ever, which illustrated a story that she wrote for a class assignment.

At the age of 16, Emily had the privilege to witness, for the first time, a ballet performance by a fellow classmate.  She instantly fell in love and was mesmerized by the grace and agility of the dancer. This inspiration moved her to immediately enroll in the local ballet school. It was exhilarating…and oh so painful, those first pair…but well worth every moment!

This personal involvement in the world of ballet instilled a deep appreciation and understanding of the elegance, grace strength and skill that goes into making a dancer. To her, dance is art…and art is a dance of light, color and form.

She hopes that you find “The Ballerina” inspirational, just as the world of ballet inspired her to create it.

Vibrant Reds to Celebrate a Special Occasion!

lois dixon red bleeding heart

This artwork is a painting by local artist, Lois Dixon, framed by our own Melissa Brenner.

In framing this piece, Melissa chose a stunning 3.5″ red lacquer Italian frame, using alcohol ink on yupo paper. The photo really does not do it justice compared to when you see it in person. The color saturation and quality of pigments are simply outstanding.

Melissa – “I love all of the little nuances found tucked away in different parts of the painting, the way the pigment sits on the paper makes it come alive and jump off the page with the vibrant reds.”

This was a special piece she framed in celebration of her 4th anniversary.

Broken Art Brought Back to Life

A designer brought us this piece of art to have framed for her client. We didn’t notice at the time, but a short while later, one of our warehouse staff spotted a hairline crack in it.  When I picked up the artwork to frame it, the top just shattered into a bunch of pieces.  I called the designer, explaining what happened and told her I could fix it.
Well our restoration attempt was a success!  You can see the progression from start to finish.

Artwork for Sea Dog Brewing Co.

This is an art installation project we did for the new Sea Dog Brewing Co on Hwy 19 in Clearwater. Our involvement was from start to finish.  This included choosing a suitable a theme, sourcing and framing the artwork, followed by the installation which you see here.

If you haven’t had a chance, take an evening to stop in at the Sea Dog Brewing Co. for dinner and drinks, located at 26200 U.S. 19 in Clearwater.  Spend a few minutes perusing the wall art while watching the sporting events of the day.

Our installation included the flat screen TV’s, perhaps the most important wall feature of all in a pub/restaurant.

Abstract Art Theme for Commercial Office Space

3
Over the course of a year, Melissa from Vista Galleries conceptualized an abstract art theme for a client’s commerical office area.  Each blown glass piece was sculpted by a local glass artist and the wall artwork sourced from various artists. Knowing all the creative people who had a hand in this,  it was very satisfying to finally see it all on full display once Pete & the install team were finished.  Enjoy!
