Make it Personal

In each issue of Artspace News we focus on collectors who share their inspiration with us.  Living with original art gives us the opportunity to express our own unique tastes and styles, while sharing a personal connection with the artist.  Collectors surround themselves with creations that feed them emotionally, spirituality and in untold ways.

This month, our featured collectors are Connie and Al Martin from upstate New York.  â€¨After visiting Artspace Gallery in Anna Maria, Al and Connie decided they would like to commission a painting for their home.  Brainstorming long distance via the internet, we decided to incorporate personal items in this mixed media piece.  Connie produced several embroidered leaves at home, sent them to the studio and they were inserted into the overall design.  Color choices were made and, "Tidepool" was born!
