Do you find shopping for fine art depressing? Your home is your sanctuary. You want it to be beautiful and give your guests a sense of who you are and what you love. But original fine art – whether it be an oil painting, watercolor, or pastel – is usually unaffordable.
Why not purchase prints instead? At Fine Art America prints can be purchased at a fraction of the cost of the original work of art. You can decide if you want to buy the print already framed or purchase a frame later on. Other products are also available, such as throw pillows, iPhone accessories, and greeting cards.
Fine art animal prints or landscape throw pillows make great gifts, especially to yourself!
Sharon Weaver has animal paintings like “White Tiger”, landscapes, plein air, and portraits available through Fine Art America. And she is adding more each week. Contact Sharon to learn more about ordering her artwork online.

The Merry Month of May Art Show
The new Brush and Palette Art Gallery located on Galion, Ohio’s historic Cider Alley is hosting “The Merry Month of May” art show from May 8th to May 30th. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from noon to 6:00pm. With an artist reception to meet the 15 area artists on Saturday, May 9th between 6:00pm and 8:00pm.
Sharon Weaver, a five year member of the Brush and Palette Art Club, will be displaying two of her plein air paintings and a pet portrait titled “Fat Cat”. A framed print of her landscape painting, “In Angel Hands” is on display as part of the gallery’s co-op space. “In Angel Hands” prints are available for $25USD.
The Beginnings of the New Art Gallery
The Brush and Palette Art Club has been around since 1960. The club has hosted many art shows over the years at community events like Galion’s Oktoberfest or places like Kingwood Center. A few months ago, club members agreed it was time for their own gallery. Coordinated by club members Carol Kable, Della Kaple, Diane Bell, Mo Taylor and many others the Brush and Palette Art Gallery was born.
You must be a member of the art club to display works in the art gallery’s co-op space, but coordinators plan to showcase other groups in special art showings like “The Merry Month of May” Art Show. Currently, in the works, is a June showing of the Crawford County Arts Council.
Della Kaple, artist, club Newsletter Chairperson, and gallery volunteer, wants the community to know “this is not an exclusive club”. She encourages anyone to stop by the gallery and ask about becoming a member. “The mission of the Brush and Palette Art Club,” said Carol Kable, club Publicity Chairperson, “is to promote and encourage the enjoyment of art in the community.”
Paintings, Portraits, Sculpture, Pottery, and More
The Gallery plans to offer classes by club members which will cover many types of artwork, such as jewelry, sculpture, painting, fiber art, and pottery. If you are interested in art classes, stop by the art gallery or call them at 419-468-2944 to find out more. The gallery’s art shows and art classes will be announced in area papers like Galion, Crestline, and the Mansfield News Journal.
Directions to the Brush and Palette Art Gallery
The Art Gallery is located between Market Street and Columbus Street in the rear of 114 Harding Way East in Galion.
