Artist of the Month
Christina’s World was painted by Andrew Wyeth. I visited and toured the house in Maine a couple years ago that inspired Wyeth to create the famous painting. I took reference photos at many of the windows of the house and was inspired myself to paint them. It seemed a fitting theme for my show this year at the Gallery. Oil is the medium I love most, but I’ve grown to be very fond of soft pastels and the immediacy of the medium. Four of the paintings are soft pastel while the other five are in oil.

Student Artist of the Month
The Student Artist of the Month program has been put on hold until the gallery is able to open again and school is back in session. This will give student artists the full experience and exposure they deserve.
The Gallery Frame Shop
Why Acid Free?
Do you have a photograph you’ve been thinking you should frame before something happens to it, a memory too precious to lose?Gallery 510 Art & Framing can help you.Acid is art’s natural enemy. Valuable items on paper deserve to be framed with acid-free materials to avoid contributing to the deterioration of the paper. The longevity of your framed artwork depends on the framing materials used. Gallery 510 Art & Framing only uses archival mats and mount to prevent visible aging. Archival paper was invented around the middle of the 19thcentury. Naturally occurring acid in paper and framing materials can cause yellowing deterioration and ruin not only the frame and mat, but the art as well. While most paper is made from wood pulp, true acid-free paper is made from cloth or rags.
