In our next segment of our “Picture This” blog series, we show you how to freshen up your space with this summer’s latest Gallery MAR artwork.

Through these elegant Photoshopped In Situs, we’re excited to offer you a glimpse of the possibilities that these fresh-off-the-easel paintings can offer your space. Whether you’re looking to get a sense of the scale of a work you’ve had your eye on or are looking for a little design advice, we hope you’ll find some fun, Photoshopped art inspiration for your home.


Matt Flint, “Through the Beyond I,” mixed media, 72″ x 55″

Because of high demand, it’s rare to find an available wolf painting by Wyoming artist Matt Flint. These beloved mixed media paintings, with their rich texture and high contrast, seem almost paradoxically peaceful and powerful, quiet and intense. This new piece, “Through the Beyond I” makes a powerful statement on this stone fireplace without competing with the other design elements in the space. If your home has a similar balance of modern and traditional design elements, this Matt Flint piece could strike the perfect harmony between the two.

You can find more of Matt Flint’s work from his latest exhibition with Shawna Moore, “Just Beyond” in the gallery today.


KOLLABS, “Madeline,” mixed media, 40″ x 40″

Your foyer can set the tone for your home. What better way to do just that than with a sophisticated, yet whimsical piece by KOLLABS? This piece, “Madeline” encapsulates everything that collectors love about KOLLABS’ work: Anke Schofield’s clever and powerful imagery and Luis Garcia-Nerey’s beautiful, textured abstractions. Plus, the warm and neutral hues in this piece create a warm, inviting entrance to your home.


Shawna Moore, “Twilight Curtain,” encaustic, 48″ x 60″

Shawna Moore’s nature-inspired work has a way of soothing the soul and calming the mind, with its smooth encaustic texture and peaceful color palette. This piece, “Twilight Curtain,” from her latest exhibition reminds us of the mesmerizing way that sunlight plays across rippling water. This peaceful, comforting piece sets the ideal tone for a room of personal reprieve, like that of a bedroom. Just imagine if the first thing you saw when rising and the last thing you saw before sleep washes over you was the soft serenity of a Shawna Moore encaustic painting…How much more at peace we might all feel.

Bridgette Meinhold, “Please Yourself,” encaustic, 30″ x 30″

Something about the dreamy atmosphere of a Bridgette Meinhold encaustic feels perfect for a relaxing bathtub view. The rosy hues in this encaustic painting only add to the dreamy, romantic tone. Plus, we love how the sleek dark wood framing complements the modern window treatment of this bathroom, making it feel like the painting is another window into a beautiful world.


Top to bottom: Sandra Pratt, “City III,” oil, 16″ x 16″ | Kevin Kehoe, “Elizabeth’s Porch,” oil, 15″ x 15″

Don’t overlook your kitchen! These brightly lit, sunny spaces deserve just as much attention as the other rooms in your home. In fact, why not place a few favorite pieces in the space we all spend so much of our time in? These small 16″ x 16″ and 15″ x 15″ pieces make for the perfect accents for your smaller walls, bringing a little more color, joy, and interest to your most-trafficked spaces. This charming, understated piece by Sandra Pratt (above) and peaceful, sentimental work by Kevin Kehoe (below) do just that.

Peter Roux, “Liminal No. 1,” oil, 46″ x 10″

There are a plethora of reasons to love the work of Asheville artist Peter Roux: the soothing colors, the dynamic compositions, the powerful high contrast, the rich texture and dimension, the moody and dramatic subject matter…

One of the things we love most for this particular space, however, is this painting’s unique shape. Peter Roux loves to experiment with different shapes from circular paintings to long vertical paintings like this one, “Liminal No. 1.” This uniquely shaped painting makes it easy to place in the spaces in your home that need some zhuzhing. We love how this long, narrow work makes quite a powerful impact in this space despite its slight frame.
