Doug Bloodworth's Resolution-friendly cookies, candy and chips


Doug Bloodworth is to American snack food what Andy Warhol was to Campbell's Soup. Talk about eye candy! No carbs, no calories, just pure enjoyment.

Bloodworth's photorealistic, nostalgic images celebrate comic book superheroes as well as classic TV icons while covering all your major snack food groups. Cookie crumbs, snack chips, candy wrappers and soft drinks adorn his compositions, and his international legion of collectors eats them up.

A kid at heart, Bloodworth is universally recognized as one of the premier photorealists of our time. His vibrant oil paintings typically include favorite comic books and munchies evocative of growing up in 1960s America. Seeing them instantly takes you back to the days of top 40 AM radio.

Shown here are just a few examples. Think these are awesome? Come in to Gallery One and see them full-sized for a mind-blowing experience. (And don't worry; we have cookies if you get hungry.)

Collectors of original paintings, take note: Bloodworth's originals are well-priced, whether from existing prints or commissions to suit your imagination. Contact Gallery One for specific information.

Now go ahead and eat your ART out!

Mark your calendar!


Clancy here, on the right.

We know what you’re thinking … The excitement of the holiday rush is over. The January doldrums have set in. There’s nothing more to celebrate until February…  (Super Bowl, Valentine’s Day, etc.)  Sigh…

NOT so fast!

There are a number of other special (albeit obscure) occasions coming up. As your Gallery One Patrons of the Arfs, Shayna and I would be remiss if we did not remind you that we offer artwork to accommodate any and all festivities.



Such as, you may ask?

Attend:

January 8 is National Bubble Bath Day.

Relax, warm up and get sudsy with Michael Godard and some strawberries! What could be more fun?















January 16 is Appreciate a Dragon Day.

And we say it’s high time!

With their cultural significance in legends and lore worldwide, dragons have earned a holiday of their own. (And thanks to their warm breath, no one who invites a dragon to a cook-out ever has to worry about grill failure.)



















January 19 is National Popcorn Day.

Despite the major cinematic impact it has, year after year, the Academy continues to snub popcorn at the Oscars. But not artist Doug Bloodworth! He has immortalized this mouth-watering treat for your enjoyment.















January 20 is Penguin Awareness Day.

Were you aware that Gallery One has penguins? (We do.) Let’s celebrate!



January 21 is Squirrel Appreciation Day.

Shayna and I truly appreciate squirrels. They won’t be ignored. They offer exercise opportunities year-round. They chatter endlessly, daring you to chase them, or test your driving skills, forcing you to swerve your car to avoid them. They empty your bird feeder so that the seed never has a chance to get stale. (You’re WELCOME.)

Artists Robert Bateman and Carl Brenders have seen fit to immortalize our flighty little tail-flicking friends for your pleasure.                                



























January 31 is Inspire Your Heart with Art Day.

Life is an occasion worth celebrating, and art makes the celebration more enjoyable.  As you can see, Gallery One has something for everyone, every day. The above is just a small sample, no matter what the occasion. See more at www.galleryone.com

It may be cold outside, but you’ll find hot coffee and beautiful art to lift your spirits and warm your heart whenever you visit us. Stop in soon. Shayna and I will be waiting for you with more in store!

Celebrate the Season with the Gift of Art 

As another year comes to an end, we are reminded of our good fortune. Gallery One opened in 1974 to make beautiful art available to people who love art as much as we do. For 43 years, you have chosen Gallery One for fine art and professional, affordable custom framing, and we are truly grateful.

Over the years, the artists have become our extended family and our loyal collectors have become our cherished friends, returning each year with children and now grandchildren! Thank you for including Gallery One in your holiday traditions, and thank you for making us a part of your home.


If you’d to share the gift of art with your loved ones this holiday season, we’re happy to help. Just like a favorite Christmas carol, a gift of art can recall happy holiday memories. Here are a few examples…


“Dashing through the snow, in a one-horse open sleigh
Sending Christmas cheer to loved ones far away!”

 I don’t want a lot for Christmas; there is just one thing I need.
I don’t care about the presents underneath the Christmas tree.
I want you for my very own, more than you could ever know.
Make my wish come true, all I want for Christmas is YOU!”

FAVORITE GIFT © Jim Daly

“Bells are ringin', children singin'; all is merry and bright,
Hang your stockings and say your prayers,
'cause Santa Claus comes tonight!”

Now and forever, may your every wish come true
Sending you love at Christmas and in the New Year, too!

“I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white.”

These beautiful giclées are guaranteed for life and will never fade. (Can a sweater make that claim?)

Most of the giclée canvases seen here (under 36”) are gallery wrapped with finished sides. Framing is optional. They ship ready to hang and enjoy, straight from the box, and we can ship ANYWHERE.

Need more ideas? Stop in and have some holiday refreshments with us. We’re always glad to help, and we look forward to seeing you soon.

Happy Holidays to you & yours
from all of your friends at Gallery One!
