The eyes are the window to the soul, so are our windows the eyes of our soulful gallery? Absolutely.

At our Park City gallery, we have enjoyed putting together a few memorable window displays, as have our artists. But I recently decided it was time to leave the work to a true professional— an artist! Which is why we have hired Lynsey Jones Schlegel of OWD Design Studio as our new window display artist. Ms. Schlegel is an artist and designer based in Salt Lake City. OWD Design Studio specializes in event styling, store display, and visual installation.

Born in Denver and raised in Fountain Hills, AZ, Ms. Schlegel has had creativity in her blood for as long as she can remember. In 2010, she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Design and a Minor in Business from Arizona State University. She has since worked as a product and graphic designer, a visual display and merchandiser at Patagonia, a visual stylist at Nordstrom, and now as Designer and Owner of OWD Design Studio. Plus, she’s super cute (see photo below)!

You can expect a variety of styles and looks for the next 12 months. This month, in honor of the upcoming Main Street improvements and construction, OWD installed a series of bright orange poppies, created from construction site materials. And we would love your feedback! Let us know which displays are your favorite. We’ll be posting updates on our Facebook page as well as on this art blog.
