One to watch

This painting, "Sheltered Space," is a painting from our March/ April show with emerging artist, Renee Hartig. The land is an inspiring element in her work, and she tries to show it as not only beautiful, but altered by man's influence. Whether it is a simple empty plain or busy orchard with telephone lines traversing it, she feels that the often-overshadowed land is interconnected and equally as important as the modern technology that we have woven through it.

Renee earned a BFA from the Kendall College of Art and Design and currently works as an instructor with her alma mater in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We're thrilled to introduce this new talent to our market, and I predict she will go the distance as a full-time working artist.
