Artist of the moment………Robert Swain



Robert Swain was born in Austin, Texas in the year 1940. Swain is renown for his style of brigh colors and basic geometric shapes.

Swain attended American University located in Washington D.C. where he earned a bachelor of arts degree.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

Swain is a past recipient of a fellowship from the Guggenheim Foundation.

Swain’s style of art is very modern in both its design and bright acrylic paint. His work reminds me of street artist invader, as both artists work are similar to the first pixel images seen on computers.




Artist of the moment……..Corinne McAuley


Corinne McAuley is a wonderful artist who works with realism and abstract imagery using glass beads as her medium of choice.

Below a link to the website of the artist:

The artist began working with beads in 2001. In addition to glass beads the artist enjoys creating art with found and recycled goods.

Some works of art such as the peonies, contain more around 27,000 glass beads!

I saw the work of this artist at the Dana Gallery’s show “Icons of the West” in Missoula, Montana. The reflected light quality of this work made it my favorite in the exhibition. It was a great show featuring such nationally renown artists as Lorrie Beck (equine drawings) and Tom Gilleon(paintings of teepees.)
