Your Private Collection Art Gallery Presents

Roberta Mallard, Impressionist

Last Saturday Gallery Night

Saturday, August 26, 5-8 pm

Roberta Mallard will be the featured artist at Your Private Collection Art Gallery as part of Granbury’s Last Saturday Gallery Night. Mallard’s works of landscapes, portraits and animals painted in oil and acrylic have often been selected for national, juried art shows.

I paint light and the color it creates,” said Mallard. “I am greatly influenced by the Impressionists.  The greatest joy of painting is seeing the look on the faces of clients when they see their portrait or have just purchased a painting and hearing the words, “I love it.””

Mallard’s work can be found in Southwest Art in the current August issue, “Women in Art” and in the upcoming September issue “National Emerging Artists.”

Your Private Collection Art Gallery 10th Year Anniversary featuring Soon Y Warren on July 29

Your Private Collection Art Gallery

Celebrates Ten Years of Art and Success

Featuring Artist Soon Y Warren

You Are Invited

July 29 5-8pm

In 2007, Linda Watkins opened Your Private Collection Art Gallery in an 80-year-old Granbury house boasting five rooms of unique, original artworks.  A New Orleans style courtyard garden provided a great gathering spot for art events and wine tastings.

Watkins, original owner, founded the gallery to introduce the unique art of Stacey Watkins Martin, her daughter and current owner—a new medium she invented using her knowledge of science to incorporate minerals, resin, metals and fused glass to create works of glow-in-the-dark fantasy.                        

Ten years later, the gallery is still a premier destination in Granbury.  Located on the Historic Square on Houston Street since 2008, Your Private Collection displays not only regional talent; but also, international and national artists bringing collectors to events and shows. The three room gallery now represents over 50 artists and has been stated as “a must see” by Southern Living Magazine.                                                    

“Our artists display a large variety of mediums,” said Watkins. “Since art preference is different for each individual, the gallery can work one-on-one with the artists to fill any needs a client might have.” 

Sharon Markwardt, international, contemporary Western artist agrees. “The owners and staff at Your Private Collection know art, and have assembled an amazing variety of high quality art in many styles.”  Markwardt, with Your Private Collection since 2008, said the “awesome” staff makes all the difference.  “They have always treated me well, and I love the way they interact with clients, both long-standing and potential collectors.”

Award-winning Watercolorist, Bob Cook, said he is “proud’ to hang his work with

“..the best variety of artists.” A long-time artist at Your Private Collection, Cook values the professional staff and how much they enjoy promoting his work.

Chuck Roach, acrylic, Western artist, also appreciates this “..professionally run gallery with experienced salespeople.  I am honored to be in a gallery that promotes not just Western art, but art in general.  Stacey has an eye for talent!”   

Your Private Collection Art Gallery commemorates its tenth anniversary with a reception for Soon Y Warren known for detail and luminescence in her work.  Warren, one of the gallery’s original artists, is not only a top, national and international watercolorist, but is also published and highly awarded.  The gallery houses the single largest collection of her work.

                                             

                                             Soon Y Warren

 

Your Private Collection Art Gallery continues to flourish with its historical location in a top-destination, small town—Granbury, Texas.  It continues to draw renowned artists including Soon Y Warren, Sharon Markwardt, Bob Cook, Stacey Watkins, Aaron Thane Tate and Randy Meador.  As well, the gallery frequently introduces new artists and art and hosts events like monthly, Last Saturday Gallery Nights.

Perhaps the most important reason for its success is the combination of art with fun and personal relationships between the artists, clients and guests—the feel is bright, friendly and positive. 

Galleries of Granbury—Last Saturday Gallery Night

Because of continuing construction, please use parking lots across from Langdon Center on Pearl St or the parking lot at Library/Shanley House.  A narrated tram is running every 15 minutes from locations from 5:30-7:30pm.  Other venues with met-the-artists include Artefactz, D’Vine Wine, Against the Grain, Dora Langdon Center and LGAA Shanley House.

PAM FRITZ featured artist

Pam has been a member of LGAA for 17 years. Lately, her work has been abstract and non objective and she has switched from water color to acrylic.  Pam loves bright colors and is coming out of a “red phase”.  She has also been working with collage and Zen Tangle, so mixing everything together seems to be her new path.  Pam says her art association is a great group to be inspired by and she is looking forward to being the featured artist at ‘Last Saturday Gallery Night.’ Below is a sample of Pam’s beautiful works.

Entry Deadline: 6/1/17

The Public Art Program of the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs requests the submission of qualifications from artists for consideration to design, fabricate and install a free-standing, outdoor public artwork that will be a tribute to the life and work of Dallas artist Arthello Beck, Jr.

Arthello Beck, Jr., Dallas African-American artist, was born in Dallas on July 17, 1941. He was the first African American to own and operate an art gallery in Dallas.

Well-known National and Texas watercolor artist, Robert W. Cook, creates realistic paintings including urban landscapes, old buildings, serene get-away places and classic cars including his renowned Corvettes.

A signature member of the National Watercolor Society and the Society of Watercolor Artists, Cook’s works often depict outdoor settings, old and new architecture and weathered structures.

Educated at Kansas City Art Institute and Baker University, Cook spent many years in architectural illustration creating over 13,000 paintings. Now a full-time artist, he has received many Texas, national and international honors.

Cook’s awards include Best in Show at the 20th, Annual Rio Brazos International, 2017, First Place in Aaron Brothers, 2016 National Color Art Challenge, Best Overall Watercolor in PleinAir Magazine’s PleinAir Salon, Best Overall Watercolor in the International Watercolor Show, Fabriano, Italy.

Represented exclusively by Your Private Collection Gallery, Cook enjoys “..painting subjects that freeze frames of my life—usually scenes with massive amounts of detail that most artists wouldn’t even consider painting!”

Your Private Collection Art Gallery Presents Jack Wolfsen

1JackWolfsenad2

YOUR PRIVATE COLLECTION ART GALLERY

Presents Jack Wolfsen at Last Saturday Gallery Night

March 25, 5-8pm

 Jack Wolfsen, award-winning sculptor, creates his imaginative works using wood, bronze, steel and cement.  Wall décor, single-standing sculptures and furniture are all part of this successful artist’s work. He is recognized for his work with barbed wire and has received many awards for his creations of old, barbed wire scavenged from Texas Ranches. His tree sculptures begin with barbed wire and are reborn in natural art.

How does Wolfsen feel as he creates each piece? “‘Enjoyment’ is the word that comes to mind,” he said.  “I never get tired of the look on people’s faces when they are in awe and discover that the sculpture is made of recycled barbed wire.”

finishing touches

Life scenes, like “Finishing Touches,” are created with hundreds feet of wire and welds.                                           

One of his sculptures, which contained over 3300 welds, won an award at the Texas State Fair

Art Competition. He has competed in many art shows, including the Rio Brazos Art Exhibition and the Stars Over Texas competition. Wolfsen was recently honored with ‘Best of Show” at the prestigious, juried Breckenridge Fine Art National and International competition and show in Breckenridge, Texas.

Linda Watkins, Co-owner of Your Private Collection, believes that, “Good art should make you feel something. For example, does it evoke excitement, peace, relaxation? Does it remind you of a past experience, a moment or a place? With Jack Wolfsen, one definitely feels a range of emotions.”   

Galleries of Granbury—Last Saturday Gallery Night

Come celebrate Wolfsen’s art at Your Private Collection Art Gallery on March 25 as part of Galleries of Granbury’s Last Saturday Gallery Night.

The Galleries of Granbury will host “Last Saturday Gallery Night” (a free art walk) on the last Saturday of each month. All are open until 8pm with “meet the artists”, opening receptions, demonstrations, hors d’oeuvres, wine and music.

Come visit – Artefactz, Langdon Center Art Gallery, Shanley House Art Gallery, Against the Grain Studio, and Your Private Collection Art Gallery along with D’Vine Wine and The Pan Handle on March 25 5-8 pm.

A big THANK YOU to all the LGAA members that submitted work for the Spring Show Poster. You will see them hung around the historic square and around town. The decision was difficult and we were looking for work that paired up well visually with another piece. The decision was so difficult that we are going to use TWO posters this year. Congratulations to Pam Tullos, Telise Rodelv, James Stewart and Jill Randall.

Your Private Collection Art Gallery Anniversary & History

 

1YPCtenhistoryA Little History About Your Private Collection Art Gallery

Energetically Supporting the Arts for Ten Years

It’s June 2007 and Home by Design Magazine announces “..a new exciting art gallery, featuring local and international artists, now calls Granbury home”. The gallery opened in an 80-year-old house transformed into five rooms of unique, original artworks called Your Private Collection Art Gallery. One great feature of the location was a New Orleans style courtyard garden, which was a great gathering spot for art events and wine tastings.

Stacey Watkins, co-owner and one of the featured artists, was the primary reason for opening the gallery. Stacey had invented a new medium using her knowledge of science along with resin, metals, fused glass and other materials to create works of glow-in-the-dark fantasy. The gallery was a way to introduce this unique art.

According to the other owner, Linda Watkins, “The gallery was a way to introduce Stacey’s unique art.  Your Private Collection was also founded on other principles—original art by awarded artists located within a 60 mile radius and displaying a large variety of mediums since art preference is different for each individual. This allows the gallery to work one-on-one with the artists to fill any needs a client might have.”

After one year, the gallery moved from one block off Granbury’s Historical Square to its current location at 106 N. Houston on the square.  The three room gallery now represents over 50 artists and has been stated as “a must see” by Southern Living Magazine.

What makes this gallery flourish at a time when many galleries are closing? It is Your Private Collection Art Gallery’s historical location in a top-destination, small town; its renown anchor artists including Soon Y Warren, Sharon Markwardt, Bob Cook, Stacey Watkins, Aaron Thane Tate and Randy Meador and frequent introduction of new artists and art. It is events, like monthly Last Saturday Gallery Nights, which combine art with fun and personal relationships between the artists, clients and guests.

The goal of the gallery is to continue helping clients to build and enjoy their own private collection. A visit to the gallery, its website, www.yourprivatecollection.com , or its Facebook page, shows the results of ten years of energetically supporting the arts.
