Holiday Gift Show

Artists' Reception Friday Evening,
December 5, 2014, 5-8 pm

Lanning Gallery is decorated for the season and ready for the holidays! The entire month of December keeps the focus on gift ideas with the spotlight on different price ranges and wide variety.

If exquisite jewelry is desired the gallery offers three award-winning jewelry artists: Valerie Ostenak, working with forged steel and pearls, and Michael Grant, who hand cuts all-natural domestic turquoise and other fine stones; both are local artists with national reputations. New-to-the-gallery jeweler Victor Yurivilca creates one-of-a-kind pieces of sterling silver and stone influenced by his world travels.

If it's sculpture you prefer, the gallery's wide collection includes meticulously designed gourd sculpture by award-winning artist Bill Colligen, hand-turned pine vessels with turquoise inlay so fine they look like glass by artist Bob Cherry, contemporary marble sculpture by Kathleen Caricof, tall Celtic-inspired steatite totems for indoors or out by Paul Braun, and many additional options.

Hand-blown studio glass by internationally renowned artist Randi Solin is always popular for gift giving and the gallery's selection of paintings is unmatched: There is Expressive Realism by landscape artist Gerald Moore whose meticulously detailed paintings stop gallery-goers in their tracks; there is Realism a bit looser with an urban edge by Jonathan Howard whose subtle collage elements and often near monochromatic palettes express thought-provoking observations on the nature of reality. There are enigmatic surreal mixed media paintings and monotypes by Randall LaGro which reveal new elements with each observation. Mark English is a true master, as is Ted CoConis – both members of the prestigious Society of Illustrators' Hall of Fame. Lanning Gallery's collection of works by Alfred Rogoway (1900-1990) and Bill Rane (1927-2005) is unrivaled. And that is only a sample of the paintings that await gallery visitors.

The brand new stars at the gallery are magnificent, life-size sisal animal sculptures by artist Anne Andersson. A snow leopard, a snow leopard cub and a tiger look remarkably life-like, masterfully created with a technique the artist never fully reveals. These large cats must be seen to be believed – and even then it is hard to believe they will not stand up, stretch and go on their way. After all, the holidays are a magical time of year.

“Holiday Gift Show” through December 24.
