Onayemi Ogunkoye will be our featured artist through the end of April, 2008. His art focuses on the Orishas, the attributes of the Source of All Things as personified as sentient beings in the Ifa Tradition of Yorubaland, West Africa, and the New World traditions of Santeria and Haitian Vodou and other decended branches of the African Tradition.

November 2007 – Winterfest

Celebrate a Season of Light

Winterfest featuring Yuletide by Merdith DillmanDiscover the mythical art of Meredith Dillman. These exquisitely detailed watercolor paintings echo the best spirit of the season. Look at her painting Yuletide, can’t you almost hear the medieval band begin to play, with it’s lutes, recorders, drums and harps?

Meredith’s art has been published in role-playing games, the books “Watercolor Fairies“, “Fairy Motifs”, “How to Draw and Paint Fairies” and metaphysical magazines and journals. Winterfest is the first one woman show of her paintings, and we are thrilled to celebrate the holiday season with her artwork in our gallery, both online and in our showroom.

Not only do we have her beautiful original paintings, but we have obtained a wide selection of prints and keepsake boxes created from Meredith’s artwork as well. Even though she lives and works in our own backyard, she has gained a following around the world through the books, magazines, and journals that have published her artwork. The Winterfest Art Show runs from November 4th 2007 through January 31st 2008.
