Hi!  I'm Guhonda!  The Browns brought me back from their trip to Rwanda in 1974 and I've taken up residence at Gallery One ever since.  I like to think of myself as their mascot.  (Unofficially, of course!)

Look!  I already have FIVE wonderful gifts under the tree.  I can't open them yet.  I have to wait.  But YOU don't!  You have FIVE wonderful gifts too!  Just go to the Gallery One Specials page and take advantage of all of them.  Or choose your favorite from the new Dean Morrissey book, Small Business Saturday, the Wysocki ($1) print special, the Kinkade Highlighting event. or the gorgeous new Anthony E. Cook giclees.

Dean Morrissey is coming Dec. 2 & 3 to sign his books and Anthony Cook is coming Dec. 10 to introduce those incredible landscape photographs.  Also, on the 3rd, Felicia Zavarella Stadelman is coming to lecture on Norman Rockwell!  Check out our last blog post for more details.  I like to think of myself as a fly on the wall for these exciting holiday shows. . .even though I look more like the 800 lb. gorilla!  (hahaha)  Everybody that attends these events is in such a festive mood and it's not just the wine & cheese or bagels & coffee that cause that effect.  They come because there is so much beauty found here and there's always something new!  Why not make Gallery One a regular part of your holidays.  And come see me at the front counter.  (You can't miss me!  They made me wear this stupid holiday nightshirt!)

Updated Fall Calendar

Now with Carl Brenders' show, our first two art lectures and the Gallery Hop behind us, we've begun our fall series of events!  But, there's more to come!  Let's run down the calendar.

First of all - Our Kinkade collectors look forward to getting their canvases enhanced at our annual Kinkade Highlighting event, scheduled as always, for Thanksgiving weekend, Friday and Saturday, November 25 and 26.  Highlighters are hand picked and specially trained by Thom to give your artwork the effect of an original.  If you've purchased a Thomas Kinkade canvas at Gallery One and would like to take advantage of this free service, simply make an appointment with Jen at 440.255.1200 or 800.621.1141...Or purchase from our displays during Thanksgiving weekend and we'll do our best to fit you in.

On Friday and Saturday, December 2 and 3, Dean Morrissey arrives for his annual Christmas visit to present his new book, The Wizard Mouse.  He's sure to have some Wizard Mouse originals and new giclées with him as well.  Friday's hours are 6-9 p.m. with a lecture at 7 p.m.  Saturday's hours are noon-5 p.m.  For a limited time only! Get a free autographed copy of The Wizard Mouse by Dean Morrissey when you purchase a Morrissey poster, print, giclée or original! Order in person, by email or by phone. For online Morrissey art orders, just add FREE BOOK in the comment box. (a $16.99 value!)

But come early for Dean's Saturday show because you'll definitely want to hear Felicia Zavarella's lecture about Norman Rockwell at 10:30 a.m.!  You'll hear not the image he presents in his pictures, but his much more complex life filled with twists and turns.  These entertaining and informative free lectures feature complimentary coffee and donuts!  You may want to mark your calendars for the rest of Felicia's season which will feature Frederic Remington on January 28, Alphonse Mucha on February 25, Mary Cassatt on March 31 and Georges Seurat on April 28.

Gallery Giclees, our sister publishing company, is excited to announce yet another artist to our offerings.  Photographer Anthony E. Cook, of Pennsylvania's Cook Forest, will be here on Saturday, December 10, at 10:30 a.m. to present and sign his breathtaking new giclée landscapes.  (Order yours now to take advantage of pre-publication prices.) Mark your calendar to join us for Anthony's informal lecture...AND bagels and coffee! 


That's all for now!
