Art does not have to be oil paint on canvas or board. Some artists
choose to create in stone, glass, ceramic, or fiber. Others choose
pastel or watercolor. Each artist personalizes their work by choosing
a medium that calls to them. The new exhibit “Multi-Mediums” at
Art 3 Gallery offers all the myriad choices that an artist can make.
“Multi-Mediums” on display through April 30, 2023.
The interplay between color and texture is an important part of any artwork. The tactile quality of an object’s
surface appeals to the sense of touch. Whereas creating hidden depths of light and color with layers of
paint and glaze attract the viewer’s sense of sight.
Art 3 Gallery hopes that all of your senses will be engaged by our new exhibit!
The end of 2021 brings Art 3 Gallery’s new show titled “Artful Escapes.” Everyone is looking forward to getting out and about again. Wherever you have been hoping to go, whether planning trips to an island beach, a secluded mountain-top, or even a quiet backyard, it can be a vacation or a staycation, an actual moment in time or an imaginary universe – the artists have realized your dreams in 2D and 3D, in oil, acrylic, glass, and ceramic. On display December 1 through January 31, 2022.
This year has been a time of experimentation in all facets of our lives. The artists at Art 3 have been experimenting, too. We wanted them to “Think Outside the Box” and they have come through in myriad ways. New mediums and styles, bold colors and design – we asked and they delivered. Now it’s time for you to take a look!
On display from June 21. There is a virtual exhibit on our home page and the gallery is open to the public M-F 1:00-4:30. Evening and weekend appointments are always available.
The next exhibit at Art 3 is titled “Beyond Words.” We will have a video exhibit up soon and ask that you call to make an appointment before coming into the gallery to see the work in person.
Everyone has heard the aphorism “A picture is worth a thousand words.” This iconic phrase, attributed to F. Bernard, means that complex or even multiple ideas can be expressed by a single image – no words needed. That’s what this show is about – how art can express feelings, emotions, and thoughts without the need for words.
It has been a hard year for everyone. Words have been spoken, some in vain. Some we wish we had never said or that we could take back. Some we wish had been said, with understanding, patience, and love. We hope this exhibit can move beyond the rhetoric and allow everyone to express their vision.
Most of what we sell at Art 3 Gallery is original artwork with the exception of some limited edition prints and lithographs. But does that mean that your purchase will increase in value?
The answer isn’t a simple one. Some of our artists are well-known and have been collected by museums and corporations. Some artists might become successful and have the value of their work increase exponentially. There is no guarantee of the future value of any piece of artwork, even famous artists fall out of favor.
We encourage our clients to buy a piece of art because they love it. Art can enrich a collector’s life in so many ways – it brings beauty into their home, adds richness and color to rooms, and may even be a conversation starter, an “emotional touch point.”
Buying artwork can be an adventure, building a collection is a process refined over time. We hope that what you buy today will give you pleasure throughout the years and if it increases in value? Well then, it was a serendipitous purchase. But if it doesn’t, it was still a great purchase.
