Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) November 29, 2013
Finer Things Artists Network has worked all year developing and marketing Arso’s online portfolios and accounts to establish visibility and storefronts online to supplement his studio gallery business in Carlsbad.
The early years for Arso were dark and tempered with harsh reality, particularly for the tender ages. Digging within himself, Arso drew inspiration from this well of difficult experiences. The artist within was conceived, though it would be many years of development later before Arso would discover his niche in the fine arts. Somehow he was able to develop a hard-shell which allowed the creative artist to develop within a turbulent sea of dreams. With such a grim beginning its not hard to follow that a stout heart and a creative imagination would develop in such circumstances. While the focus of his early life was on survival, the artist was peeking through this shell, someday to emerge onto the international art scene with his daring uncommon perspective, and even more rare, his genius talent for communicating his wild and vibrant inspirations through the visual arts to the world.
Like/Friend Arso on Facebook.
When Arso discovered his unique technique of crystallizing watercolors to resemble the icy panes of picturesque scenery from his earliest memories as a boy in Montenegro, he knew he was onto something big. After perfecting this technique with watercolor, Arso continued to push the creative envelope to the limit by mastering this crystallization technique in oil as well. To this day no other known artist uses this technique which has become Arso’s signature style since 1969 when he debuted in his first art exhibit in Milwaukee. Arso is sure to be a notable talent for generations of artists to come.
A buzz throughout the art community began with critics compelled by Arso’s work. He delivers a subliminal message to all who have lived through an ordeal, mastered, and triumphed the experience. He reminds all of us, that life though not always pleasant and pretty is nevertheless a fascinating and beautiful to contemplate illusion, each of us possessing a distinct perspective. A browse through Arso’s catalog of work over time shows an evolution from classical realism mastery to his own unique fanciful and transitory dreamscapes. Life is after all what we make of it consciously or not. A melding of influences from master artists preceding himself, Arso has compelled art critics to compare him to Cezanne, Klee, Picasso, Dali, Chagall, and Degas. His works extend from lithographs, watercolors, and oils to wood carvings and sculptures. Though artists and writers speculate, crystallization is a secret technique Arso guards jealously, at least until he believe’s he cannot push the limits of its creative potential further. We hope he’s at least written the secret formula and process down so he won’t take his secret to his grave. Show your support for Arso’s talent on SeeMe.
Arso’s artistic style has naturally developed over time. His early work is demonstrative of his mastery of the classical and renaissance periods. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Sarajevo before coming to America in 1967. Already prepped at the Sarajevo Teacher Training Academy in Tulza, Arso received a Master of Arts degree at the University of Milwaukee and secured a position as an assistant professor of Fine Arts 2yrs later. He subsequently lectured at art schools and leagues for 6yrs to graduate art students from around the world before retiring to paint full-time. Additionally, Arso ran his own private artist tutoring for over 20yrs to students already graduate degreed in Fine Arts, several who took his private classes for over 5yrs including Welton Brady, Steve Horvat (impressionist), Harold Wilson, Chairman of Cardinal Streech College, WI, and Mary Becker. Join Arso’s professional network on Linkedin.
Today Arso’s original works sell for between $ 10,000-$ 95,000 depending on the size and the medium. Throughout his artistic career Arso’s collectors have acquired over $ 2 million dollars of his legacy with untold value in today’s market. Until recently, Arso’s works have been sold exclusively from his studio gallery in Carlsbad and select galleries internationally. Art enthusiasts and collectors alike will be pleased to learn Arso is now offering an exclusive selection of his finest works online at Finer Things Artists Network. Once a month a selection from Arso’s collection is available on auction at Ebay.
Arso’s first exhibits displaying his signature talents started in 1969 in local Milwaukee art shows, his fame quickly spread to the international art audience in the 70′s. He has been a solo exhibited artist over 2 dozen times as well as participated in over 3 dozen collective art shows internationally over the past 40yrs. Arso is a featured artist in over 160 published news and magazine articles internationally. 28 books and encyclopedic publications, including Arso’s monograph book of his collection published in 2012, including critiques and analysis by notable art critics through the years. Arso is registered in American Art Who’s Who 1995-2000 editions. Arso made TV appearance as featured artist in 1984, US Prime News as well as over 20 other television broadcasts internationally over the years. Also in 1984, at the New York World Art Expo the local presses chose Arso’s artistic technique as the most interesting of the event.

Washington D.C. Fine Art Gallery, Huckleberry Fine Art Gallery, is thrilled to host the work of one of the worlds most talented living surrealists, Michael Cheval. The Gallery will showcase Chevals work during an open house and host a meet and greet Cider & Caramel Reception, November 7 to November 9. The reception and open house are free of charge, but the Gallery strongly recommends RSVP.
Absurdist artist, Michael Cheval, will be available to meet and discuss his artwork with guests of Huckleberry Fine Art Gallery on November 7 November 9. The Gallery will provide hot apple cider and caramel inspired treats at the Cider & Caramel Reception November 7 and 8 from 7pm 11 pm. The Michael Cheval Open House will take place November 8 and 9 from 12pm 11 pm and 11 am 4:30 pm respectively.
Michael Cheval is the worlds leading contemporary artist, specializing in absurdists paintings, drawings, and portraits. Chevals art is well-known for its technical prowess, grandeur, and originality. He draws his inspiration from the styles of two Surrealists, Salvador Dali and Rene Magritte.
Cheval defines absurdity as the reverse side of logic, It does not emerge from the dreams of surrealists, or the work of the subconscious. It is a game of imagination, where all ties are carefully chosen to construct a literary plot. Absurdity is a starting point of his creations, but his work is often metaphorical and each piece tells a unique story.
The event is free and open to the public, but RSVP is strongly recommended. With questions or directions please call at 301-881-5977 or email at info(at)huckleberryfineart(dot)com

The Art of Dr. Seuss is coming to Huckleberry Fine Art with all the characters we all know and love! The Cat in the Hat, The Grinch, and The Lorax are on display, along with secret art and unorthodox taxidermy rarely seen by the public.
Join Huckleberry Fine Art for two evenings of cupcakes, drinks, and the world of Dr. Seuss, Friday and Saturday, Dec. 13-14, 2013 from 7 p.m. 11 p.m. The gallery is located at 12051 Nebel Street, North Bethesda, Md., 20852. For more information and other related events, visit http://www.huckleberryfineart.com.
The collection includes The Cat that Changed the World from the Archive Collection of the famous The Cat in the Hat, and After Dark in the Park, straight from Dr. Seuss Secret Art Collection.
The strangest, yet the fastest selling of all the collections is the Unorthodox Taxidermy. These sculptures of never-before-seen characters are mounted on plaques and hung on the walls like a prize-winning buck. Playful names stay true to the Dr. Seuss style, such as The Goo-Goo-Eyed Tasmanian Wolghast, and The Flaming Herring. These timeless works of art are available for sale, just in time for the holiday season, for your family to treasure for years to come.
Dr. Seuss, born Theodor Seuss Geisel, is widely known for his fun and whimsical books, but he was also an artist. A perfectionist, he would spend a year or more just working on one book and throwing away a large portion of the initial sketches and writings before publishing the final product.
Dr. Seuss intense focus and care in creating his artworks are the reason his books still hit the best sellers lists, said Boots Harris, owner and operator of Huckleberry Fine Art. We are proud to bring the art of the legendary artist to the Washington metro region.
Dr. Seuss Enterprises, created before Geisel passed away in 1991, archived years of illustrations, concept drawings and even the secret art that he created for his own pleasure. Now the company brings that same art to the public to witness and relive the joy everyone felt when seeing the Grinch’s heart grow two sizes or the Cat in the Hat strolling through the doorway before chaos ensued.

(PRWEB) November 27, 2013
Hosting a fine art exhibition is a way for businesses to offer something new and exciting to their clients, and provides an opportunity to expand their customer base. Fine art oriented events target individuals who enjoy good food, wine, music, as well as socializing and networking among other things. These events bring all of those features together and give people a reason to become repeat customers. But how do businesses coordinate art exhibitions at their locations without any prior experience or access to artists and their artwork? ArtCrypto Fine Art Gallery solves these and other issues by bringing its artist network and expertise to businesses doorsteps.
Business establishments who desire to incorporate art events such as exhibitions and auctions as part of their operations often do not have the tools, access, and/or experience to organize and execute these types of events. Being able to select the appropriate artwork, bringing the artist(s) to the event, targeting and advertising to the right crowd, etc., becomes a hassle for most businesses. Yeray Diaz, ArtCrypto Fine Art Gallerys art dealer, said It is possible for a business without prior experience to organize an event like this, but it is quite difficult to deliver the same quality of artwork on a consistent basis without being part of the art industry and having direct access to artists who can supply fine art pieces worthy of being exhibited at these events. ArtCrypto assesses the business and location hosting the event, finds the appropriate artwork to be exhibited, assists with the overall event planning, coordinates for the artist to be present at the event, and more. Diaz remarked Those organizations wanting, but not knowing how to coordinate an art oriented event at their establishment now have a solution.
Whether a business needs to organize an art exhibition, auction, artist meet and greet, art based fundraiser, or any other art related event, ArtCryptos art dealer is available to provide his innovative methods of introducing artwork to the public. Through these events, he brings seasoned local and international artists to establishments. Art fans get to explore and acquire original paintings and drawings, meet the artists, and most importantly, consume; generating profits for the hosting establishment. Repeating these types of events throughout the year keeps customers coming back wanting more.
To know more about how ArtCrypto can help organize private or public art focused events (e.g., auctions, exhibitions, fundraisers), the gallerys art dealer is there to assist. Art fans, non-profit organizations, and business owners who are interested in what this innovative Maryland art gallery has to offer can contact the art dealer directly via phone (850-748-9744) or email yeray(at)artcrypto(dot)com. Visit ArtCrypto to see the gallerys exclusive inventory.

Amour dArt Gallery, specializing in fine art of many genres including contemporary realism, impressionism, figurative art, abstract and 3-dimentional art, is relocating its fine art gallery to downtown Los Gatos. The premier opening will take place May 3 and 4, 2013.
The gallery will be centrally located at 216 N. Santa Cruz Avenue, Los Gatos, and will offer a museum quality display of fine art from all painting disciplines.
For many years, the greater San Jose area has needed a fine art gallery resource. I have been looking for several years for the ideal location and space to showcase our massive selection of originals, limited editions and prints representing artists from all around the world, said Carrie Scott, owner and curator. Our website, http://www.amourdart.com, is only meant to represent a taste of the gallerys vast collection at any given time, and this new retail location will provide an opportunity for our collectors to see the pieces in person.
Amour dArts expansive collection includes oil and acrylic paintings, watercolors, drawings, hand-signed limited edition etchings, lithographs, serigraphs, hand-embellished art, glass sculptures, and Disney art.
Although we feature images in a wide variety of painting styles, we specialize in contemporary realism and are proud to include Bay Area contemporary realist, Laurie Regan Chase, as our artist-in-residence, added Ms. Scott. Laurie is an award winning signature member of the American Society of Marine Artists and is in many permanent collections throughout the Americas. Her work brings international maritime flavor to Amour dArt and she will be painting in the gallery often.
For a taste of what the gallery has to offer, visit http://www.amourdart.com.
About Amour dArt:
Amour dArt owner and curator Carrie Scott worked in public relations, marketing and sales for nearly four decades.
Throughout the years, whether on vacation, sightseeing, visiting someone or a new place, she found herself purchasing artwork at fine art galleries, shops, and wherever else she found pieces that inspired her. She made a point of researching each artist she collected, studied their inspiration for their works, and whenever possible, met with them to get an in-depth perspective of the energy that fueled their creativity.
The gallery is unique for collectors because of this knowledge of each of the artists and their collections Ms. Scott brings to the buying experience. Her philosophy about art was, and still is, to purchase what you like; it can give you joy, comfort and inspiration.
About Laurie Regan Chase:
Chase was born in Chicago where she gained a love of water through sailboat racing on Lake Michigan. Her formal education began at the Art Institute of Chicago, and completed at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, where she received her Bachelor of Science degree. She finds inspiration for her scenic portraits during her private sailing travels throughout the Mediterranean, Aegean and Caribbean Seas as well as Mexico.
She has showcased her work in one-woman exhibitions in the United States, Mexico and Europe. In 1997, the mayor of Portofino, gave her the keys to the city, proclaiming her the ambassador of the beauty of Portofino to the world.
