Art on Display: Different Locations, Different Focus

Earlier this week I had the pleasure of visiting Black Dog Salvage Marketplace to do some shopping. The Marketplace at Black Dog Salvage has also featured my art for the past few years.  If you know anything about their TV show Salvage Dawgs , then you already know what a unique place it is!

Art is displayed alongside the vintage furniture, up cycled items, antiques and "whatever" in vignettes.   Koiner and her staff do a wonderful job of arranging and highlighting the best features of all the items in the shop.  


"Red Flowers are Never a Bad Choice" is displayed on an antique mantle with other pink items and backed by a mirror.


"Late Summer Sensation" sits on a small table surrounded by vintage purses in colors that bring out the colors in the painting.

A more typical art display places all the artwork in a pleasing arrangement on a wall.  This allows many works to be seen at once and provides lots of choices for the collector.   Often there is a hanging system like the slat wall at 2nd Helpings Gallery to create arrangements with ease and without damage to the walls.

"All Critters Great and Small" by Double Line Painters of the Blue Ridge at 2nd Helpings is now on display until April 28, 2016.  The artist reception is this Saturday, April 9 from 1-3 PM.

Come by to say hello and enjoy this fun show.  
And thanks for stopping by my blog.
