Sporadic Elements into One Story
This year we at Baterbys Art Gallery (Baterbys) have decided to try new endeavors in connecting with the art community. Not only do we offer competitive prices, we have streamlined our gallery, and have opened our doors more often to exhibits and events. This allows us to stay true to our valuable service, and keeps us steps ahead of the game as we present new incentives to our clients. That being said, world renowned artist Alfred Gockel, as well as grand prize winner Robin Pedrero and 1st runner up Alberto Quinteo will have their artworks featured at our Spring 2012 Auction.
Robin Pedreo and Alberto Quintero were a part of our 1st two Second Fridays exhibit this year. This event brought in numbers well above average for any local galley exhibit. We wanted to offer fresh choices to our cliental; therefore we handpicked six finalists to represent Baterbys, and allowed you the public, to decide on whom you would like to see hanging on our walls. The decision was made and now we carry two outstanding artists, who represent us well with their artistry and professionalism.
We continued to celebrate the success of Pedrero and Quintero by having them do a live painting at our 2nd Second Fridays affair. While they painted they were gracious in answering question, taking pictures and giving the public the history behind their personality. As the evening progressed we at Baterbys were inspired, gave everyone a prequel to our Spring 2012 Auction by auctioning off a couple of art pieces by these phenomenal artist.
At our Spring 2012 Auction it will be Alfred Gockel’s turn to do a live painting for our cliental, although; he is no stranger to the Baterbys’ family. We have been honored by Gockels presence multiple times with him adding in elite items to our inventory. On prior visits, he had hand-embellished artworks from his earlier collections allowing Baterbys the exclusivity on his mixed-media works. Now we are able to offer a range of originals to Gockel collectors for a fraction of the cost of his canvas works.
In the auction, Gockel will demonstrate why he is known as a world renowned phenomenon. Alfred has made a name for himselfhttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif painting live in front of an audience in art galleries or a high-end cruise ships. In his charming, yet firm tone, he would ask the people in the crowd to name the first thing that came to their minds. After hearing the crowd randomly spewing out answers, he would then paint them the story of all he had heard onto a large canvas that cohesively weaves all these sporadic elements in one unified .
Be prepared to be amazed with the way he describes colors with the fluidity of his paint brush. His inspiration will come from the audience, so this is definitely a ‘must see’ affair.
