Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! Have you gotten your significant other anything yet? Well, if not, you’re in luck; the Silver Fox Gallery has you covered! We are sure to have the right gift just for you. What better way to say I love you than with a piece of American made art? Featured in our window this month is a beautiful painting by local artist, Megan Richard. Richard is a water media artist living in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. The abundance of natural beauty in the region serves as inspiration for her work. Richard’s paintings depict ethereal mountain vistas, expansive starlit skies, and tree filled woodlands. Her landscapes evoke a quiet sense of time and place. Her beautiful work is sure to make your loved one melt.
Alongside Richard’s art, are beautifully handcrafted ceramic bowls created by potter Louise Bilodeau. These pieces are artfully stamped with sweet words such as love and family. Bilodeau strives to make pottery that contributes to people's enjoyment of home. For everyday use or an event, Bilodeau believes that handmade serving pieces make a meal special. Bilodeau creates all serving pieces from start to finish, from throwing and stamping to glazing and firing. Withstanding the rigors of everyday use is an important reason for Bilodeau to work in cone 6 clay. Her pieces are microwave, dishwasher and oven safe, and product tested by her children. With pottery so durable and so sweet it is sure to make a great Valentine’s Day gift.
Another wonderful gift option is one of our adorable animal pillows created by artist’s Eric and Christopher. Eric and Christopher met in 2011 while participating in an art show outside of Philadelphia, PA. At the show Chris introduced Eric to a new art project he was developing called "Push Pull Print”. Through the process of creating work for exhibition, Chris and Eric were able to talk about their art and their businesses. Shortly after the completion of the second Push Pull Print project Eric had come up with the idea to put his images on to pillows. “We have so much fun meeting animals, editing art together and being able to make our own product,” says Chris, who started making pillows with Eric in 2012. "We have different breeds of dogs, bunnies and foxes. These cute pillows are sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face."
