Recent acquisitions to the ART2Gift® Collection by Featured Artists:
Jennie Barrese, Photography- Barrese's black and white photography is reminiscent of her daily emotional state, deeply embedded in her subconscious. Her color photographs are also a reflection of this kind of emotion, but involve more reactions to her thoughts.
Jihay Kang, Painting & Mixed Media- Kang's acrylic on canvas work consists of iconic images merged together, creating an almost optical illusionary picture surrounding messages of eternal growth.
Andrew Maglathlin, Sculpture- Maglathlin uses ceramics to create abstract forms in a variety of different shapes, all resembling figures and objects that have inspired him throughout his lifetime. For ART2Gift he offers a selection of teapots that are not merely decorative but useful as well.
Anne Marchand, Painting- Marchand will be featuring her latest abstract paintings in acrylic on canvas. Her work is a highly textured, rhythmic expression of universal songs.
Jennifer Murray, Drawing and Mixed Media- Known for her charcoal drawings of people and wild animals in displaced settings. Murray plays around with her muse, the wolf, in a variety of mixed media work and small sculptures. Each work is a reflection of her own personal feelings, as well as her struggles and desires common to all people.
