Art for Inspiration

Welcome to the new Art Resources Gallery art blog! We have just started a new and exciting project called Art for inspiration. You may be wondering what this means and I’m here to tell you all about it. My name is Janella Fesenmaier and I am the art director for our gallery in the international market square building, Minneapolis.

Here is how it all got started…we were brainstorming about how we could create a little excitement in the gallery during the dregs of our waning Minnesota winter months. Anyone who lives here can tell you that it gets to be a long winter come mid March! We came up with the idea that it would be fun to partner with a designer to create an Art for inspiration station in the gallery to hi-light some art and design ideas for spring.

We decided to ask Julie Stark from J. Stark Interiors to see what she had in mind and she was quick to come up with something fresh, fun and full of energy for us! If you have ever met Julie you know that she is full of energy and is always bursting with ideas.

When she showed me the sketch she came up with I scanned it right away for the blog because I wanted to show Julie’s first ideas and design scheme. It’s fun to see the raw, unedited design idea! From this first sketch she will make a design to scale using all of the furniture and artwork pieces she has. I will post a copy of that when I get it too! I will also be posting images of the before and after pictures of the space.

There are several other people that were instrumental in making the Art for inspiration station happen. I will list them on my next installment…come back soon because on April 1st it will be complete!
