Spring at Gallery One

I know it’s been a while, so I thought it just might be time to catch you up on everything here at Gallery One!

We have just completed our 23rd annual Masterworks in Miniature featuring over 125 outstanding images from some of America’s finest artists.   If you didn’t have a chance to view or purchase, our “after the show” is still open with “name your terms” layaway options.  Visit in person or online before you miss them.

Remodeling and Home DesignHave you heard of  According to their AboutUs page, “Houzz is the leading platform for home remodeling and design, providing people with everything they need to improve their homes from start to finish - online or from a mobile device.”  They are in the US and Canada and offer the world’s largest database of residential design along with a vibrant community of professionals willing and able to offer advice, inspiration and product information.  You’ll also find reviews of all the professionals you need to contract everything from initial design of simple redecorating or large building projects through the remodeling process.  You can create “Ideabooks” for each room of your home including the office and storage space, or look through all the landscaping photos.  There are so many design ideas you’ll browse for hours!  (fair warning)

Gallery One wants to connect with you through the social networks that Houzz uses; Twitter, Facebook.  Have you liked us on Facebook or followed us on Twitter?  A large part of our business relies on recommendations from our clients. We would appreciate it if you would write a brief review for us on  If you’re a member of Angie’s list, perhaps you wouldn’t mind writing a review for us there as well.

In the gallery, our Kinkade clients are thinking ahead to Mother’s Day weekend when the Master Highlighter arrives to enhance their canvases.  Jen is scheduling now, so don’t miss this free service available only for our Thomas Kinkade canvas clients.

Alan Brown, president of Gallery One, has been hard at work with sales of some rare and newly
Howard Terpning
released editions by Howard Terpning.   Quite simply, Howard Terpning is one of the most lauded painters of Western art. His awards are so numerous and he is honored with them so often, that to list them would require changing the count every few months. To name three would be to cite the highest prizes awarded to Western art: countless awards from the Cowboy Artists of America, the Hubbard Art Award for Excellence, the National Academy of Western Art’s Prix de West and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Gene Autry Museum. Why such praise? Passion, compassion, devotion and respect for his subject matter, extraordinary talent in palette and brushstroke, an exceptional ability to evoke emotion both in his paintings and from those viewing them — all this and more has made Terpning the "Storyteller of the Native American."  If you’ve never seen his work, at least browse online if you cannot make it into Gallery One.

Google has invited Gallery One to participate in their new Open Gallery project and we are excited to showcase a selection of this year’s entries to Masterworks in Miniature.  We’d love to hear your feedback!  Check out and let us know what you think!

Well, that should brighten up your spring and maybe provide a bit of inspiration too.  We’re open 6 days a week from 10 am to 6 pm to provide just that.
