We are home from fabulous Las Vegas!

Jun 28, 2013

For over 30 years, the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas has been the meeting place for the biggest names in the industry and this year was no different than the rest! The Art Licensing Team is super excited to report that this show was a success for us again this year. We were very busy all three days- meeting with our artists, current customers, and some new faces.

Throughout all of our meetings, we received positive feedback about the artwork our artists have worked very hard to produce for us. Our visitors enjoyed the large selection of artwork we provided. We tried to update our facebook page from the show so our fans could see pictures each day! Take a look so you can see all of the pictures we shared! We were very excited that some of our west coast artists could make it to the show. Dennis Lewan was kind enough to bring his latest original painting for us to display at the show! We also had the pleasure to spend time wtih Apollo and Fiona Stokes-Gilbert! We loved getting to see the people behind the amazing pieces of art- espeically so we could give them our latest "wish lists" in person! 

 

We are glad to be back in the office because we came home with a large “To-Do” list of contract requests as well as new art requests!

Attention Animal Lovers!

Jun 26, 2013

All of you animal lovers will be excited to know that you can now purchase Ken Bailey's art on pillows! They are a perfect accent to your favorite room or a wonderful gift for your favorite fellow animal lover! 

Ken Bailey’s art appeals to people who appreciate the graphic form and historical connotation, but also attracts animal lovers who share an emotional connection with his pieces.  His goal is not to paint a representational portrait, but to portray a deeper emotional connection that makes people laugh- reminding them of a loved friend.

Steve Henderson judged 31st annual Wallowa Valley Festival of Arts!

Jun 05, 2013

Artist Steve Henderson recently judged the 31st Annual Wallowa Valley Festival of the Arts in Joseph, Oregon. The three-day festival is one of the premiere art exhibitions in the Pacific Northwest, drawing regional and national artists working in all type of media. There were 214 works of art created by 90 artists for Steve to critique.  One participant said of Steve: “I was looking for his bias, because all judges have an obvious bias. But I couldn’t find it. He is an extremely fair and kind judge.

(Steve speaking to a group at the festival)

In addition to judging the show, Steve spoke at the festival about his own art and artwork, and conducted individual critique sessions with participating artists. In his off time, he hiked through the Wallowa Mountains, capturing reference photos for future paintings. The Wallowa Mountains are nicknamed the Swiss Alps of the Pacific Northwest, so he got all sorts of inspiration!  After hiking 7.5 miles for the day, Steve returned for the evening reception. He enjoyed a sip or two of wine, while he was grabbed by one artist after another for three hours. 

Steve enjoyed this experience and was honored to be a judge!
