“What is more cheerful now, in the Fall of the year, than an open wood fire? Do you hear those little chirps and twitters coming out of that piece of apple-wood? Those are the ghosts of the Robins and Bluebirds that sang upon the bough when it was in blossom last Spring.”

“In Summer, whole flocks of them come fluttering about the fruit-trees under the window: so I have singing birds all year round!”                   

Thomas Bailey Aldrich


So do many of the collectors who purchased works from The Birds Exhibition!

Just like birds, art is all varieties…… all seasons……… all year……always!

All of us at Lovetts, thank you for spreading your wings with enthusiasm and support in honoring exceptional artists and exceptional works for The Hitchcock inspired show, The Birds.

 “The birds fly south for the winter, not because it’s cold, but because they have wings. Similarly, love has the ultimate flight pattern, and that pattern is plaid”.

Jarod Kintz

Naturally, plaid goes in many directions. As does art, as do artist, as does Lovetts Gallery and as do you! That’s why our next show will be taking a love of all those things on a flight pattern, one that is vertical, one defined by height. Altitude. High altitude!


 The altitude project. exhibition is coming in February 2016. This show will feature five high performing artists, who will all be present at the exhibition along with all new heartwork. They define for you and themselves why they are artists. They take on challenges with determination, expertise, adrenaline, self-exploration and vulnerability. As proverbial tight-rope walkers, balance is not something they find. It’s something they create.


Although analogies of tight-rope walkers may generally infer danger, fear and risk, this is not our intent or definition. Allow me artistic license with words to explain. These artists create because there is no choice not to.  It is void of reverse direction. It’s their voice. Their footsteps made in brushstrokes.

 The altitude project. unifies the artist and the collector in dual exploration. There is adventure at great heights. Uncertainty is an element of living an adventurous life. Let uncertainty beckon you instead of scare you away. Attitude determines altitude.

Be elevated with the presence and performance of high altitude artists Roseta Santiago, Lindsey Kustusch, Steven Walker, Natalie Featherston and Josh George.


 These artists were invited to develop their own threads or themes for their pieces, if they so chose to. And they did!  We will share those colorful details in our next newsletter. Don’t forget to watch the tight-rope walker move on the timeline for this event on our Exhibitions page and on Lovetts Gallery Facebook. Thanks to Phil for designing it.

 Speaking of tabs…..the new web site is finally up! This has been a lengthy, learning experience and we are still working out some kinks as we go along, but we are rolling with it and apologize for the annoyances and thank you for your patience. Rome wasn’t built in a day and obviously neither are websites! Tee-hee!



Thank you for your support, for reading this newsletter, and for loving and appreciating art!!!

Raven Sawyer, the Beak Speak of Lovett’s, reminding you that life is more colorful when you have a good Artitude!
