Art Smart: May Ugallery Picks and Giveaway

by habituallychic

05 . 02 . 09
Every month I started my monthly Ugallery feature, I have been amazed at how many talented artists I have to choose from! To keep myself from posting every great work, I usually try to stick to a theme. For May, I wanted to post works that reminded me of the beginning of summer from baseball games to changing landscapes and Venetian vacations and road trips. They all feel like summer to me.

I am also excited to announce that Ugallery will be exhibiting at The Affordable Art Fair in New York (7 West 34th Street) from May 7-10, 2009 so you can check out the art in person! They are also giving away 10 tickets ($80 value and admits two) to the Private Preview cocktails and sneak peek reception Wednesday, May 6 from 6:00-9:00pm. The first 10 Habitually Chic readers to email me with their name will have the tickets left for them at the Will Call window. Good luck!

    What a great service you are providing. there is several I would purchase if I was able to get to NY this month. They work is
    wonderful, these students (i’m assuming) are very talented and have much to be proud of.

    Love these works, especially “Venice Canal” and “Forest”…there ist ruly a glimpse of the future potential of these artists. (I love impressionism) Have a great week!

    These are amazing. Another extremely talented young artist is Samantha Buller. From the Academy of Art in San Fransisco. I’m a completely envious of her abilities and creativity.
    hope you enjoy it!
    Love this post as a fellow young artist and designer.

    Dear HC,

    I love your blog but when I saw the title of this post, I cringed in horror. You see, I move at the end of May and have my eye on 3 specific works in UGallery. However, I don’t want to buy anything until we move so that we don’t have to have items shipped to my current apartment only to pay overpriced Manhattan movers to transport them to the new place.

    With dread I scrolled through your article, praying that you hadn’t posted any of, ahem, MY art, thereby encouraging some dreadful interloper to steal my works. Fortunately, you had not. Whew!

    Your blog is a great source of inspiration. I have been following you for a while and I wish you continued success. Now please leave UGallery alone until the second week in June! Please!

    Anonymous – Please call Ugallrey! I am sure they would be happy to sell you the works now so no one else buys them but not ship them until you move! I would hate to see you miss on on the works you want and they are soooo helpful! And I would suggest you call them since the Affordable Art Fair is this week and I don’t know what they are taking to exhibit there! Good luck and let me know how it goes!
