Weekly Update October 30, 2017
Lori-ann Latremouille - New Paintings

New works by Canadian artist Lori-ann Latremouille on exhibit thru November 4th.

We are very pleased to again offer the newest works by renowned Canadian artist, Lori-ann Latremouille.

Our relationship with this talented artist, singer, songwritier and poet goes back to the mid 1980's when we first began selling her interesting charcoal and pastels on paper from our office/showroom on Lake Bellevue. Since then we have had enjoyed a variety of exhibits and sales from our Kirkland location and now for the third time we are pleased to exhibit her newest works in our Bellevue Gallery.

This year's exhibit, "Man in the Landscape" she  explores the idea of human beings completely integrating with natural forms like trees or large stones. The figures are not just entwined with these forms but are a part of them. For example a human tree or a boulder head.

Congratulations

Congratulations to Jaime Ellsworth for her inclusion into "100 Artists of the Northwest" by E. Ashely Rooney.

The works of 100 contemporary artists interpret and provide a fresh look at the artistic vibrancy of the Northwest region of the United States. The states of Oregon and Washington are rich with artists, having become vital art scenes in the past several decades. Using sculpture, glass, oil, clay, wood, and other contemporary mediums, as well as paint, these 21st century artists combine, redesign, and transform their materials into pieces of works that change the way we perceive both the regions of the Northwest and the world. With a guide to galleries, sculpture parks, museums, and schools, this book is a wonderful resource for lovers of all art mediums

E. Ashley Rooney, of Lexington, Massachusetts, has written several art books; this is her fifth in the "100 Artists" series. She has established a solid reputation for her architectural, design, and historical works.

See You In The Funny Papers


My mother always said “see you in the funny papers” and alas, she finally saw me there. On Mother’s Day May 13, 2001, The Gunnar Nordstrom Gallery appeared nationally in a wonderful 3 panel Sunday edition of the comic strip Ziggy by Tom Wilson. In the title panel, Ziggy is looking up at his home’s blank walls with his dog, exclaiming “Our house is lacking artistic ambience” In the next panel, Ziggy says “… We need some art in here”  “…art is one of the essentials of life!”  “FOOD, WATER, SHELTER and ART” he exclaims with arms waving. The third panel has a very distinguished art dealer standing in a gallery talking to Ziggy “…Welcome to the Gunnar Nordstrom Gallery…is there anything I can show you?” Ziggy answers “…yes, I’d like to see something in a paisley to match my sofa!!” The very distinguished art dealer only sighs and of course finds Ziggy exactly what he was looking for. We are never too stuffy to help you find exactly what you are looking for.

Ziggy has a new book out as of November 2003, Ziggy Goes Hollywood features many of his most recent successful comic strips....and yes....we made the cut. Read the Gallery comic on page 114. Wouldn't that make a great gift?

Many thanks for that great plug to our friend Tom Wilson and Tom II for their support and great comic strip.

Matisse Sold!

Yes, “Matisse” the mistress of the gallery has been sold and is off to a new home in Southern California. Those of you that know Gunnar and his love for sailing will agree that it was a sad day to see Matisse leave her slip at Moss Bay. Matisse was a lovely 1968 30’ Shields daysailer that had been a welcome addition to the gallery and it’s clients for many years. Easily the prettiest boat on the lake, she was sailed often and she is going to be missed. She is going to join her own kind in a fleet of other Shields at Orange Coast College and The University of California at Irvine and will be well taken care of. Happy sailing Matisse!

Vernissage is the newest addition to the Gallery's collection of beautiful women. As was Matisse, Vernissage is also a vintage 1968 daysailer, but a Soling. Designed in Norway for use in the Olympics as a One Design racing boat between 1972 and 2000, the Soling is light and fast, but not nearly as comfortable as the Shields was. Vernissage is a demanding boat and makes you work for a sail, but she still fashions herself quite sporty while maintaining the status of one of the prettiest boats on the lake. We do love our beautiful women in the gallery.
I believe this winter's project on her will be to alter her "racing" mentality and mature her into a comfortable daysailer with new seats and most needed beverage holders...She might even change her color from Navy Blue to a brilliant Yellow...Would that make her a blond?
Stay tuned....

Art isn’t a Luxury

With the economy in the country being somewhat less than we are use to, Bellevue in general seems to be holding its own. Our move to Bellevue Place in November 2008 has proven to be just what the doctor ordered. While we will always love Kirkland, this new location has increased our business over the previous year and kept us afloat during these difficult times.
If you haven't made it in yet to see our new space, it is fantastic with positive feng shui and great energy, not to mention incredible art and FREE PARKING.
Coming in the New Year, new artists, favorite old artists and more sculpture are inline for 2013 -2014
Remember…”Art isn’t a Luxury”
