We’re in the final days before our highly anticipated Little Gems show opens. The show is hung in the gallery and a number of great pieces have already found new homes. In order to give a preview of the great paintings and more that we’re displaying, we’ve been showing the new small work of our talented artists here over the last several days. Today we focus on two of artists who live and paint in the Ithaca area, Anne Bialke and Ileen Kaplan .
Anne Bialke has been been with the West End Gallery since 1995 and has been a longtime favorite here with the the warmth and brushwork of her beautifully expressed oils. Ileen Kaplan has been with the West End for several years now and her colorful impressions in paint have been really well received, earning her a solid following here.
The work of both is a wonderful part of this glowing show. Stop in tomorrow for the opening reception for this year’s Little Gems show, from 5-7:30 PM. You can see more work from Anne Bialke and Ileen Kaplan there, along with a wide range of other artists. Hope to see you there!
