New Artwork Adorns Kalispell

Now there's art on the outside of our building too. The top piece is by Mark Ogle and the two side pieces are by my late father, Joe Abbrescia.

If you have not yet had the opportunity, stop by the newest art gallery & studios in Kalispell. Now is a great time to make the trip and enter our drawing for a chance to win Ogle or Abbrescia art! Our Grand Opening is on Saturday, April 7, 2012. Two names will be drawn during the week of April 9th. And, like the saying goes... you can't win if you don't play!

The gallery features the artworks of both Mark Ogle and Joe Abbrescia. Abbrescia's work is now represented by his son, Joe Abbrescia Jr. Originals and fine art prints on canvas (giclees) from both artists are available. Another unique feature of this space is that it is also the new home of the Abbrescia Art Restoration Studio. Many interesting things happening in Joe's studio!

Documenting your art collection and Painting Evaluations

I found a great article to share!  It contains much of the same information I share with my clients.  I like to contain all information regarding the art collection on its separate portable hard drive...something small and compact so it doesn't take up too much room in your safe deposit box at yourbank.

The Western Art Dealer: Painting Evaluations

This is such useful information from Buddy Le's Blog "The Western Art Dealer" that I just wanted to share it!

The Western Art Dealer: Painting Evaluations: "People always want to know what their artwork is worth. With the popularity of Antiques Roadshow, a lot of people have cleaned out their attics in hopes of finding something worth a small fortune. I love when people come see me and bring in an old dusty painting with more cracks than Humpty Dumpty and swear it's valuable because they saw a painting on Antiques Roadshow that had a similar looking horse in the background."
