august's May 15th collection features the art photography of Chris Dahlquist.

Mile Marker 131
23" X 35"
Photograph over gold painted steel
c Chris Dahlquist

Chris Dahlquist captures stunning and serene images, and prints them on steel that has been painted with gold. The result is a captivating, soothing, ethereal, and abstract image that is absolutely stunning. Each one is an original- only produced once in it's size, and is masterfully framed behind museum glass. Her one of a kind and highly distinctive artwork will be on display at august and is the inspiration and cornerstone for our spring body of work. The artist accepts commissions for pieces up to 35" X 51", but has received several commissions for her triptychs which span 9ft when hung. It is our tremendous honor to represent this fine artist whose work is nationally known and highly collectible.
