Solvang, California—November 7, 2018–Solvang Antiques Fine Art Gallery is expanding to include contemporary and Western artists in addition to their antique and vintage art. With the closure of the Judith Hale Gallery at Solvang Antiques, owners Dwight and Arlene Steffensen are committed to providing an outlet for the artists to display and sell their works through Solvang Antiques Fine Art Gallery.
Two dozen of the former artists will be staying on, among them many familiar faces such as Dirk Foslien, Sheryl Knight and Joe Mancuso. The gallery will also be carrying on the annual traditions of the Holiday and Spring Art Shows and are developing other exciting gallery events for the upcoming year.
In addition, Solvang Antiques welcomes new artist, Keith Batcheller, a native of Southern California, who graduated with Honors from Art Center College of Design. He began his career as an illustrator and, among other projects, designed over 50 movie posters for Walt Disney Studios. His current focus is painting Western subjects, wildlife, and landscapes that tell a story and convey a strong sense of emotion.
Don’t forget to stop by Solvang Antiques Fine Art Gallery on Saturday, November 24th for their Holiday Art Show reception where you can meet the artists and enjoy artist demonstrations. With a dozen artists participating and over 30 new works it will be an exciting show offering something for everyone.
