Pantone, the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, today announced PANTONE® 18-2120 Honeysuckle, a vibrant, energetic hue, as the color of the year for 2011. While the 2010 color of the year, PANTONE 15-5519 Turquoise, served as an escape for many, Honeysuckle emboldens us to face everyday troubles with verve and vigor. A dynamic reddish pink, Honeysuckle is encouraging and uplifting. It elevates our psyche beyond escape, instilling the confidence, courage and spirit to meet the exhaustive challenges that have become part of everyday life.

“In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating color that gets the adrenaline going – perfect to ward off the blues,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Honeysuckle derives its positive qualities from a powerful bond to its mother color red, the most physical, viscerally alive hue in the spectrum.”

Eiseman continues, “The intensity of this festive reddish pink allures and engages. In fact, this color, not the sweet fragrance of the flower blossoms for which it was named, is what attracts hummingbirds to nectar. Honeysuckle may also bring a wave of nostalgia for its associated delicious scent reminiscent of the carefree days of spring and summer.”

Honeysuckle is guaranteed to produce a healthy glow when worn by both men and women. It's a striking, eye-catching hue that works well for day and night in women's apparel, accessories and cosmetics, and in men's ties, shirts and sportswear. Add a lively flair to interior spaces with Honeysuckle patterned pillows, bedspreads, small appliances and tabletop accessories. Looking for an inexpensive way to perk up your home? Paint a wall in Honeysuckle for a dynamic burst of energy in the family room, kitchen or hallway.

Honeysuckle products are currently available from a variety of manufacturers:

Wedding Apparel A flattering hue for wedding attendant apparel and accessories, Honeysuckle is now one of the nearly 200 PANTONE WEDDING Colors available from Dessy, a leading manufacturer of bridesmaid, social-occasion and flower-girl dresses.

Things You Always Wanted To Know About Art But Were Afraid To Ask

Art is not scary.  

Well, now it's not.  However, when I first started working for the gallery, the only thing I knew was - I paid for 4 years tuition for my daughter to get her degree in art.  And, I knew what I liked.

Inez & Tony took a chance on me.  And they are educating me (in a good way!).  Styles, nomenclature, how to choose art for clients.  They are art consltants extraordinaire.

When I tell people I work for art consultants the typical response is "Oh, that's nice."  "What's an art consultant?""  Why would I need one?"  " How would I know if I'm getting what I need from one?"

So, here's what I've learned.  An art consultant  has  knowledge in many schools of art, years of experience, a good working relationship with many artists, and can offer clients impartial opinion on selections they are considering.  Art consultants work for homeowners as well as commercial clients.  

You will want a consultant who has an understanding of your space, color schemes, and price point.  Someone who knows the difference between contemporary vs old masters.  A consultant that will show you "everything" available in your chosen medium.  And, once you've narrowed down your selection, someone who will be able to direct you to the right works for your collections or space.

Art consultants will work with artists that specialize in a variety of mediums.  It's amazing the selection: photography, fine art prints, original oils and acrylics on canvas, giclee, glass, sculptures,  etc.  Art printed on aluminum, plexiglass, bamboo.  

Talk to your consultant regarding terms of payment and budget up   front.   Don't be shy.  Remember the lesson we learned in school...."there's no such thing as a stupid question."   A good consultant should be able to find a piece of art, within your price range, that you will be proud of for years to come.  The more I work at A.R.T. Gallery, the more I see the benefit of  an art consultant.  My taste in art really varies.  I like so many styles that my impulse buys don't always work in my space.  If I had hired a consultant, it would have saved me money in the long run.  

If you are the type of  person that has a hard time making decisions or don't have the time to invest searching, an art consultant might be just the ticket.  But I would recommed doing a little research via the internet.  If there's a gallery you've visited, an artist you love, a style you MUST have, take the time to do a little leg work and come prepared to meet your consultant.  It will give them a great start in narrowing down pieces for your collection.  

Here's to happy collecting.....

New Gallery on the scene

After nearly 20 years of corporate art consulting, we decided to open an art gallery in October 2008. We have been selling lots of cool felt scarves, jewelry, and paintings.
