The Artist Relief Project

Posted By Rebecca-NY | Nov 29, 2012 | No Comments | Category: Uncategorized

Various Artists have come together and made a pledge to donate 50% of their proceeds to the New York Foundation for the Arts’ Emergency Relief Fund for Hurricane Sandy.  A few of these artists had artwork that was damaged and destroyed during the storm so they know first hand what it was like to lose valuable possessions during the hurricane.  They have created ‘The Artist Relief Project‘ which is an online exhibit (Nov. 28 – Dec. 17) to help victims get back on their feet.  Take a look at the participating artists and see if there’s a way you can help them recover from their losses.  It’s a great way to help those in need and get some Holiday shopping done at the same time!

All About Color

Posted By Rebecca-NY | May 15, 2012 | 5 Comments | Category: Uncategorized

Abstract art seems to be the “it” thing these days and it’s hard to stay focused on just one artist when there are so many amazing talents out there like Reagan Geschardt.   Reagan and her husband Danny (who is also an artist) recently moved back to the NYC area from Naples, FL where they ran a very successful decorative arts business.  Reagan was trained in trompl l’oiel  murals and fine art  but has now started to focus on creating and selling her abstract works which are interpretations of her daily experiences.  Some of her current paintings study the interplay of color and light using water and landscapes and things that surround her.  The colors are magnificent and might be just what your room is missing.  For more information visit Reagan’s website here and find out about upcoming events so you can see her work in person!  Art is beautiful no matter how you look at it, but let’s be honest, it’s best in living color!

Danny Geschardt (Reagan’s husband) also sells his abstract paintings and these two seem to work well as a team!  See Danny’s work below:

Between the two of them I’d say there’s something here for everyone.  The colors are enough to make me forget about all the rain we’ve been getting lately.  So don’t let your home get too gloomy – it’s time to add some abstract color!
