2022 Holiday Catalogue

December 8, 2022 - January 7, 2023



Every year, we love putting together a selection of work that might be appropriate for an end of year gift for someone special and we hope you enjoy this catalogue.

Last year we had so much fun with T-shirts that we've made one with JooYoung Choi and her fabulous character Poundcake Man. Artist cards by Beth Secor, new ceramics by Amy Blakemore and Jill Whitten, as well as a selection of smaller works, all under $5000, are featured below.

We'd love to see you in person, or give us a call if you need some gift guidance – we are happy to help.

    Robert Ruello's Moon Paintings

    "The moon pictures began with a “Fresh Air” interview about Jesuit astronomers. Who knew there were, and continue to be, priest astronomers! I was interested in how they reconcile their faith in God with the vastness of space and humankind’s place in the universe.

    I was initially interested in these priest/astronomers because of Galileo. I made a large orange drawing based on Galileo’s observations of Jupiter’s moon, observations that eventually got Galileo imprisoned by the church after he foolishly published his findings.

    Additionally, these observations were done with a cutting-edge new technology for the time—a telescope! It allowed the human eye a magnified and extended reach. I see parallels with our contemporary computers—a device that extends our human capabilities.

    My first moon piece was a Kircher Moon. Athanasius Kircher (1602-1680) was a Jesuit priest and polymath who published an astonishing 40 books in his Medieval lifetime. He is a total delight to read about–let’s just say everything he published is charmingly inaccurate, including his moon diagram. He thought the moon had water on it, hence names like the “Sea of Tranquility” (where the first man mission landed)."

  • Demetrius Oliver's 'Orbs'
    Demetrius Oliver
    Orbs, 2011
    digital chromogenic print mounted on Sintra
    21 x 25 in (53.3 x 63.5 cm)
    edition of 10 plus 1 artist proof (2 of 10)

    Demetrius Oliver's "Orbs"


    Demetrius Oliver's "Orbs" shows a moon globe covered with round lightbulbs. Orbs on orbs. A simple, yet mysterious tableau, eliciting wonder. Oliver remarks: Ancient astronomers thought the moon contained oceans, which is why they named portions of it “mare.”  

    Now we know that at some point in its 4 billion year history, the moon did in fact contain water.

    Science and wonder.

    Charis Ammon Night Paintings

    The night greets us earlier this time of year.
    Ammon writes:
    "Lately, I’ve been curious about the night. Without the stretching of shadows from sunlight, time seems endless and abstract. Night seems to heighten our senses, yet cloud our judgement. Worries can become louder and peace can become smoother. Painting life in the dark feels endless with possibility."
