Blogging is a new experience for me, and I'm having great fun with it! It's a perfect way to let you know what's new at the gallery. We all have our own different styles and tastes, and SPECTRUM certainly offers a "broad spectrum" to choose from.

Because I have the opportunity to daily observe, try on, and savor all the pieces we have, I have developed my own preferences that I would like to share with you in a new blog entitled "Kathleen's Pick."
Today's Pick is from the TRIPPWORX STUDIO where Tripp Gregson lets his imagination run wild! I recently had the opportunity to meet Tripp's mother and father and they had wonderful stories of Tripp as a young boy making artistic pieces out of any found objects. They saved many of his drawings and sculptures made during those childhood years and still proudly display them! From what I just said, you may think Tripp is in his early 20's but I think he is 40 something with children of his own. However, he never lost that creativity he had as a child. It's alive and well and stronger than ever!

Tripp is famous for his fish, crab and lobster sculptures made from used license plates, road signs and odd pieces of metal. Having been "weened" on lobster, my favorites are his lobsters. They even have names like Trey and Effie! We also have a four foot long Marlin and a couple of sharks that hang from the ceiling. If you are looking for a piece of art that is FUN and definitely unique, these pieces are all that and more! In fact, if you have an old, sentimental license plate, Tripp will made it into a piece of fish art for you!

If you haven't seen this work, please come by, it will definitely put a smile on your face!

Have a great day,



Exquisite DAHLIA KANNER sterling silver jewelry has just arrived!

Dahlia is from Rhode Island, and is a graduate of the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design.
Her work is meticulous in execution and her designs are inspired from the natural elements surrounding her life in New England. I especially like her "wave" rings which can be stacked or worn alone. She contrasts her pieces using oxidation, matte and high polish techniques. We sold several pieces within a day of their arrival, but still have an excellent selection to choose from.
