More Pictures of the Old Storefront/Studio/Gallery
Here are a few interior pictures of the front room. The large painting on the bottom photo is one of Jack's large studio landscapes. It was painted from his plein air studies, and it was on the cover of American Artist magazine in February 1991, where we had a feature article (our 15 minutes of fame). To the right of the painting is the magazine cover, and I will try to take photos of the whole article and post that for you. Looking at the photos now, I wish I had the hanging system then that I now have in my new studio. It would have made switching painting for display much easier.
When I first opened the studio/gallery, I only showed my paintings and Jack's paintings. We are fairly prolic, and we had more than enough paintings to fill the walls. But after a while, I decided to show some other artist's work, too. The third photo down shows a painting by Elizabeth Torak, and the forth photo down show 2 of Elizabeth Brandon's paintings ( the 2 paintings above the table - she did the covers for Cook's Illustrated for many years) and 1 small vertical painting by Ann Scanlan (lower right).
