Henri Lepetit Paints Chautauqua Wine Country
French artist Henry R.B. Lepeit was
inspired to paint a series of views of Chautauqua County while visiting
new facility in Westfield, New York.
Henri calls the area “God’s Country” and an inspiration for any
artist. He chose Barcelona Harbor, Amish lifestyles, vineyards,
and Bell’s Cove on Lake Erie, as subjects for this first series
of paintings. Henri plans to visit the area again in July to continue
The paintings will be exhibited at Eclectic’s New York Gallery later
this summer and plans are underway to publish the series as limited
edition prints that will be sold through local wineries, shops,
Eclectic’s Chautauqua Gallery is scheduled to open later this year.
The facility will feature 19th century American and European paintings
as well as contemporary works by international and regional artists.
The Gallery plans to bring featured artists to the area to relax,
paint, lecture, and teach. Also planned are wine tastings and other
related events conducted in association with local vineyards on
the Chautauqua Wine Trail.
A waterfall, Japanese bridge, rock gardens, and nature paths are
also planned as features of an art walk that will feature paintings
and sculpture exhibited in nature within the vineyards, and gardens
located on the property.
19th Century Danish paintings are the undiscovered gems of Europe:
They were among the first to study with the Impressionists, starting
in the 1880s. They naturally adopted the "French Palette" and brought
its use of color back to Denmark. At the same time, they shifted
their subject matter to country landscapes and ordinary people -
both cast in the diffused light of Scandinavia. This became known
as “Nature, Light, and Mood school of painting.
Taught at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, where leading figures
were employed to pass on their secrets and tradecraft to the next
generation, these artists held onto the classic vision of art -
a “window to eternity,” revealing the sweetness, beauty, and love
that lay beyond the pain and difficulty of everyday life. The last
hurrah for this philosophy was 1890-1914, before the Great War,
when European culture and sensibilities were at their highest.
Light and Shadows
“Uncommon Studies of the Commonplace”
by fabrics, Joanna’s paintings cast new light on every day life.
Moneyline with Lou Dobbs reported that investments in fine
art have outperformed the S&P, DOW and NASDAQ indexes
over the last 2 years. This means just blue-chip art, old
masters, know (deceased artists), etc. "Trendy"
art is not being purchased, only art that has been already
recognized by the passage of time. The art has not only kept
its value but has increased in value over the last 2 years.

Robert Noel Blair
A View From The Outside
An ongoing exhibition of previously
unseen paintings by Robert Noel Blair will be shown at Eclectic
Art & Objects Gallery in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania . Included in
the exhibition are many of the artist's earliest works dating from
1931 through 1949. They are among the paintings that Blair felt
were his best and the paintings that inspired their use as reference
for many of his later works. These important watercolors were part
of the artist's personal collection that remained in his barn studio
until his death in 2003.

Artwork is vulnerable and therefore it is imperative that it is
properly cared for. For example:
-Don’t hang artwork over a fireplace that is not properly vented
Discolored varnish, torn canvas, flaking paint and other damage
