Time to hit the books!
Clancy, looking studious

Clancy, your humble co-Patron of the Arfs, reporting.

Ahh – fall! The days are shorter and nights are cooler. What could be cozier than curling up with a good book and a warm dog? Shayna and I decided that back-to-school time is the perfect opportunity to remind you what a wonderful resource Gallery One is for book lovers of all ages.

In addition to beautiful art and framing perfection, we have a fabulous selection of books, filled with art – something for every age and interest. We’re like the library for art lovers (best of all, you don’t have to whisper when you come in).

We even have ART about books!

The Library

Addie's Window

You can choose from books featuring the recent art of Robert Bateman (New Works). For the lovers of fantasy we have books featuring the imaginative dinosaurs of Jim Gurney (Dinotopia), and colorful art for kids in Scott Gustafson’s Animal Orchestra. Dean Morrissey’s award-winning best-seller Ship of Dreams is back in print, and we have artist-signed copies! The Forest Has Eyes features Bev Doolittle’s camouflage art - as you gaze at the natural world, you realize it’s looking back at you! Or read all about the artist and humanitarian in The Life and Art of Edna Hibel. And for you foodies, we have Marilyn’s Munchies, a cookbook featuring photos of pets and recipes from their owners with proceeds benefiting a local animal rescue organization, Marilyn’s Voice.

Don’t forget, with the holidays coming up books make appreciated gifts – the kind that get opened again and again! And right now, when you purchase a book from Gallery One, you can also select a gift-boxed figurine for only $5! Can the library do that? But I digress.

Shana and I look forward to helping you browse our book collection. No treats are necessary. But if you should feel compelled to reward us with some, we’ll graciously accept.
