WHATS NEUE PUSSYCAT? Akron Ohio Favorite Don Drumm

If you grew up in NE Ohio like me, you’ll probably remember the mural on Rt. 77 near The University of Akron. Or maybe you dined at the Armadillo on Exchange street in the sixties. Perhaps you didn’t know it then, but you were witness to the work of Don Drumm. Don opened his studio in 1960 near the University of […]

Coronavirus-Coping; Buying and Selling Online

This auction is primarily antique and art dealer consignments. For almost two months, the antique shops, malls and shows have been closed, cancelled or postponed. Dealers who’ve welcome you into their shops for years haven’t had any income to speak of since the coronavirus came to town. This is how the Pandemic Relief auction came […]

Gloomy? Get Bloomy!

Experts say that a floral bouquet can ease your winter blues. Harvard research on happiness reveals that flowers at work or home increase the feelings of kindness and compassion. In a study by the University of Florida, they discovered that people with flowers in their homes reported a significant decrease in stress levels. A painting […]

A CLEAR CHOICE FOR ANY DECOR

I used to think lucite furniture was kitsch but I’ve had a recent change of heart. We have a lucite and glass coffee table in our showroom and I love how this piece of furniture doesn’t visually crowd the space and hide the carpet below. What’s also great about transparent lucite and glass furniture is […]

FOR THE LOVE OF CONOVER

You either love ’em or you don’t. I have yet to meet anyone who has a middle of the road opinion about Conover pots, but everyone sure seems to know about them. Many people purchased from Potter & Mellen on Carnegie Avenue when they had the windows filled with pots and the price back then […]

Lot 118: “Figure in Thought”, by Sir Anthony Caro

We are thrilled to include this stunning work of art in our Spring auction. Sir Anthony Caro is one of Britains’ most distinguished artists. Known for his metal-smithed abstracted sculptures, Caro veered from his well known style to rediscover drawing and clay modeling in the summer of 1983, which resulted in a surprising collection of […]

Everyone wants Recognition.

Everyone wants recognition in some form or another; a kind word, flowers, a gift and often times a trophy if the circumstance affords it. Trophies are a reminder of an event for a special achievement. I love big old trophies from long ago for sporting events that nowadays, not many people still participate, such as […]

Neue Gallery Presents: Visions of Paradise in Sacred Geometry

The first Neue Gallery Presents focused on the art and science behind Indian miniature paintings was a hit. Special thanks to our generous expert, William R. Anderson from Carnegie Capital Management. Guest Judi Engel summed it up best: “It was a wonderful mini-immersion experience. It was so nice to be surrounded by works about one […]
