Blog Week 37Last updated on
We are now only a few days away from our 2019 Frogman exhibition and we have a whole host of fabulous and rare bronzes available in readiness.
Along with the show frogs Royal Mint & Sovereign and our exclusive owl Clementine, we have some rare low editions from the USA. One of the picks of these is the beautiful ‘Pearl’ which we have just one of from an edition of only 15!
The new editions are available to view and order in our online Frogman gallery now but the exhibition when Frogman will be available will run from 7-9pm on Thursday 19th September. Frogman will also be interviewed on Radio Lancashire on Gilly’s Thursday program at 2pm also if you would like to catch his interview.
Introducing Richard King – Paintings on Glass
We have taken delivery this week of our first original paintings by artist Richard King. Richard was born in Birmingham and paints his fabulous compositions on the reverse side of glass.
Working on glass allows him to create a softer gradient of colour and tone and a stronger range of contrast allowing him to create the vivid scenes he could not achieve on canvas.
Each of Richard’s subject matters are taken from scenes witnessed and photographed by himself and create a spectacular impact on the glass. The first two in the gallery are available now and show scenes in the Alps and Wales so we do hope that you enjoy them. Viewing in person in the gallery is highly recommended.
New from Todd White
Yesterday also saw the launch of the latest limited edition print from one of our enduringly top selling artists, Todd White.
‘Nine Pieces of Vinyl’ is from an embellished edition of 150 and is a great piece for the music lovers amongst you. Look closely and you can take a peak into some of Todd’s chosen vinyls in this fantastic limited edition.
Due into stock in the gallery next week, ‘Nine Pieces of Vinyl’ is available to order now.
Barry Hilton Originals
Due to the continuing demand for Barry Hilton’s original works and one or two health issues which have hindered the flow of his painting this year, the keen collectors amongst you will have noticed a somewhat limited availability of originals this year.
With this in mind, we are thrilled to have acquired three new original works, all of which are amongst some of his finest examples. Covering his dramatic landscapes and also one of his best large harbour pieces to date, we do hope that you like the new works.

An Intriguing Painting by Geoffrey Key
We have also acquired recently a magnificent painting by Geoffrey Key dating back to 1990. Entitled ‘Turning Head’ the painting reveals itself to every viewer in different forms. Some viewers see just the single circular face whereas others see two faces kissing. Both arresting views but what about the clock face, adorned with the sun to the bottom and the moon to the top?
If a successful painting is one which draws in the viewer and asks as many questions as gives answers, this must truly be one of Geoffrey Key’s most successful paintings. Available to view in the gallery now with a collection of other Geoffrey Key oil paintings.
Glowing in the Dark by Andrei Protsouk
After showcasing a 6′ x 4′ Theodore Major original a few weeks ago, we have taken delivery of another monumental painting this week in the form of ‘Glowing in the Dark’ by Andrei Protsouk.
On this monumental scale, this luminous painting continues to surprise the more you explore the detail and is truly a feast for the eyes. Even if you don’t have a wall that can accomodate this incredible painting, we encourage you to call and view it in person as it is a real treat for the senses.
Finally, Luminance by Jose Munoz
The last little delight for this week is the beautiful small new bronze from Jose Munoz. Munoz’ Hummingbird sculptures have proved a big hit with collectors so we do hope that you like this charming little addition.
Cast from a limited edition of just 250, Luminance is available to order now and view in the gallery.
We do hope that you like this weeks offerings which are available on a first come first served basis and look forward to seeing you soon, hopefully this Thursday (19th September) at our Frogman exhibition.
