Los Gatos, California (PRWEB) May 01, 2013
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.

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.
