News, Tidbits And Ruminations

Welcome to our blog.  I guess we are now the 63,912,719 blog in our known universe.  It’s always exciting to provide another venue of communication regarding our gallery and the art world we serve.  Art Matters.  It always did and always will.  We are passionate about the artists we represent because we too are artists in our own right.  A couple of tidbits: our Gallery Manager is a well known award winning artist.  Anne Hughes who you may have had the privilege of meeting is quite the accomplished artist.  If you have not met her, then please do stop in to do so, and see the other fabulous artists ZIA|Gallery represents. The Director of the gallery, John Vlahakis, is an accomplished fine art photographer, and his exhibition will be coming up at the end of January 2012.

We’re excited about our next show which focuses on two accomplished artists.  Photographer Julie Meridian and Painter Beverly Zawitkoski.  Julie is from Evanston, IL and Beverly is from Montreal, Canada.  Sample images of their work grace the header of our blog site.  ZIA|Gallery will sponsor an opening night exhibition of their work on November 4th from 5 to 7:30 PM.  Our opening night receptions are legendary.  We offer a catered wine event that is open to the public.  We hope you will join us for a salon evening of wine and discourse.

One of the services the gallery offers, something I may point out is not offered by other fine galleries, is our ability to provide custom framing for your art work.  We provide a range of framing services from simple to museum quality.  Please do check us out, especially during our upcoming sale on framing.  Contact the gallery for more information.  Thank you for stopping by, we hope to hear from you in the near future.
