I'm excited about some of the new works that have just arrived and some that are on their way! I haven't seen the gallery this full in a while! The variety of art we have on hand is amazing, even to me! In the case of art I have to say less is NOT more! Sorry Mies Van Der Rohe!

Art Resources Gallery in
“Imaginary Cowboy… the art of the West”
Jun 2nd- June 27th
Inspired by John Nieto’s 60” X 48” “Jackson Sundown”, Art Resources Gallery is exhibiting Western and Native American themed paintings for the month of June.
We are privileged to be exhibiting this American master’s original, and it set the creative wheels in motion to show amazing Western themed paintings by other artists.
Aside from “Jackson Sundown”, other Fauvist inspired contemporary paintings will include the amazing “Cow on Red” by Rensley, and a brightly colored stallion by local artist Jeff Boutin. Moving toward the traditional, we are featuring Alpine Lake by
Ernest Chiriacka 1913-2010
I would like to take a moment to acknowledge the passing of one of the artists that will be featured in the show, Ernest Chiriacka. I feel the gallery is very privileged to carry the artwork of this amazing artist. He had quite an extraordinary life and was able to make a living doing something he loved. Chriacka came from an era where artwork done for magazines was actually done by hand, not on a computer. He did many pieces for Esquire and the Saturday Evening Post to name a few. His artwork from the 1950’s and early 1960’s evokes a feeling of glamour and style. In his later work, he was focused on the Native Americans plight after the Sioux Indian uprising at
I would urge you to see some of the paintings we have left at the upcoming show. They are truly amazing.

As many of you know, Art Resources Gallery and Gabberts’ designers have been collaborating on creating exciting new spaces in our gallery with paintings, sculpture and furniture. Our latest innovation was designed by senior designer Duane Waltzer and myself.
The genesis of this “room” began with my vision of a large, colorful abstracted heart. I approached artist Jeff Boutin with my idea and he came up with a very commanding 48” X 48” painting. From that starting point, I showed Jeff’s Heart to Duane and asked him if he would like to design a room for us that used this painting as a focal point. He loved it and said he knew just the thing. He brought in blue leather chairs, a shiny red table, a candlebra, a chandelier – and we set to work.
With Valentines Day right around the corner our room is both Baroque and romantic. Duane calls it a little”Liberace meets Versace”. For both of us, color and texture was key – primary, bright, true colors. We both leaned more toward the eclectic and artistic rather than the functional. Duane loves to layer art in unexpected ways. Big chunky frames on little paintings, etc.
We couldn’t be more pleased. The reaction by passersby and regular clients is very positive. In these difficult times we all need a little more color, whimsy and fun – you can’t help but smile when you look at all the eclectic pieces that work so nicely together. Our photos show the results.
