calm after the storm

Yep! That's Diane with her honey , Jim , kissing under the Mistletoe at the Gallery this weekend. A busy day with snowflakes swirling around and christmas music filling the air. So many people were in Yellow Springs, despite the COLD and snow. Maybe it just put everyone in the mood for the holidays. I think it did for these love birds!
So after it was all said and done that day, I was making trips to and from the car, when the sight of the gallery just looked so serene and peaceful! I just had to share! Don't you just want to come in and have a glass of vino with one of the artists?!

12 Pack Art Showing
NOLAA Gallery


Did you just throw that can away or did you recycle?
At NOLAA Gallery, Artists have taken it one step further and have REUSED a variety of Crushed Cans as Canvas for their creative endeavors.


Meet the artists as they show off the different media they used to create this
one of a kind, and original art!
Each piece created with the idea that as artists we need to be ecologically conscious and think of our environment in art as well as in the day to day. By using recycled materials, you get not only a funky and cool work of art by an amazing artist, but you are helping the environment too!

It’s A Green Art Movement this month at NOLAA Gallery!

Friday, November 21st
6-9pm

Getting to Know Nancy Mellon


NOLAA Gallery is excited to introduce Nancy Mellon to you today! Stop by the gallery and visit her if you are in town!



......in her own words.....

I am a multi media artist. The last 2 years I have been a blast making public art with the JAFAGirls....


I work in intense spurts intermingled with tense art cramps, when everything stops, until I meet up with another artist or some fabulous piece of art or a nice day or.... and get juiced again! I work with clay, pencils, acrylic paint, fabric, yarn and junk. I love people, nudes, conversations about big ideas, the color green, intense colors, esp, next to black, intricate patterns, Green County,(it's GREEN), my tree house studio ( not a real tree house, but I see leaves and branches out each window ). I especially love Yellow Springs, Ohio. It's beautiful with lots of trees and artists everywhere.






One of my favorite things to do is gallery sit in one of the galleries. I get to talk with customers from all over the world, visit with my art friends that drop by and tell people about all the wonderful things that they can do in Yellow Springs.



Nancy is represented by NOLAA Gallery & the Village Artisans in Yellow Springs.

Nancy's Top Ten Reasons to Buy Original Art.....

1. It makes you more creative by
having creative things in your space (osmosis)

2. it's solidarity with the artists of your world

3.it keeps interesting people in your area
(because they can afford to live there if somebody buys their work),

4. it's history (at least later on it will be! We know most things about
people of the past by the art they left behind,)

5. it comes with good vibrations attached

6. art that comes from the artist makes life come
alive

7. it's not canned (unless it's on a can)

8. it reminds you of magical things

9. it's made with fingers and brains,souls, it's a bit of humanity

10. It's a mystery....

Time with Diane

NOLAA Gallery is so blessed to have such amazing artists as part of the venue. Each one brings an eclectic mix to the gallery which makes viewing for any client exciting! So much to choose from!
In addition to our website, NOLAA Gallery, we are launching the New BLOG!

Here you can see more art work and spend some time with our artists as they create, chat, and relax. I hope you enjoy getting to know them and their work as much I do.

Thank you Diane, for being our FIRST video. She is a BRAVE lady!



Diane Lutz is an amazing artist with an ability to capture the true spirit of animals with oil and acrylics. Currently she works in mostly acrylics.
This video was taken last weekend during Art Stroll in Yellow Springs. The weather has changed to windy and cold since then, but at the time, Diane was able to paint for strollers outside NOLAA Gallery.

ENJOY!!!
