You find Reflection Gallery just on the left at the bottom of the hill, as you enter historic Canyon Road. The Gallery has been in this location for 20 years representing Fine Art from the United States, Russia, the Ukraine, Germany, France, Spain, Peru and China. We specialize in original works of impressionism and realism, as in the impressionist landscapes, seascapes and cityscapes of Russian, Vladimir Nasonov, the Still Life of Alexander Shabadei, Jerry Weers and the figurative works of Wang Bing of China. Peggy McGivern’s thought provoking, whimsical paintings. The landscapes of American painter Marty Ricks are soft, yet bold in a minimalist way and with their exquisite frames make his paintings a must see and for many, a must have. The colorful, strong impasto paintings of Dmitri Motov and the lovely palette and texture of Valeriy Shmatko have been appreciated and sought after for many years now. Our Spanish star, Pedro Fraile, lights up the front room! A child prodigy, Pedro has devoted his life to his art and his pieces have graced the homes of many of our collectors since we discovered his work eleven years ago. Ukranian impressionist Taras Tabaka’s works have rapidly become popular with our Reflection collectors.
We are fortunate to represent half of the estate of Ukranian Master Impressionist, Fedor Zakharov (19191-1994). Fedor is beloved by so many impressionist painters of today. Many times I have recognized well known impressionists who live in this region or visit from afar standing in front of the Zakharov paintings and studying each brushstroke or paint mixture!
One day an artist who had just become represented by Reflection walked into the West room where the Zakharov’s are hanging. When he saw them, he began to cry and exclaimed, “I can’t believe that I am in the same gallery with the “Master of Impressionism – Fedor Zakharov!”
Many times customers have wandered into our storage rooms to discover their perfect painting! We do have many paintings that are in storage because we don’t have enough walls! Of course, we are happy to bring them out for you to view!
The sculpture of William Binnings, Susanne Vertel, Stephen Potter, Don Huntsman, Joshua Spendlove, Jack Maxwell and Joyce Killebrew are admired throughout the gallery and outdoors in the sculpture garden. Susanne Vertel’s life-size commission of Robert Oppenheimer can be viewed at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Her ballerinas, Geishas and numerous versatile pieces grace almost every room. The amazing sculptor Lee Andreason depicts the care and love of craft and the horse as sculpture.
R John Ichter’s vividly unique pastels beautifully grace our front room. The framing on the pieces are also works of art. “Bob” chooses each frame individually to adorn each piece! Some people at first glance think that they are stained glass.
The innovative, contemporary “Float” paintings of MK Hargrove sometimes shock the traditional Reflection customer. MK loves to see the different reactions to her pieces. She is often popping into the gallery as she is our art consultant. Her fresh new work is a culmination of years as a landscape and sky painter who, over time, happened to naturally evolve into experimentation! She breaks rules! Come see!
Wait! There’s a whole lot more!
There’s the famous Russian American couple Evgeny and Lydia Baranov. Surprisingly, they paint on the same canvas at the same time!! Lydia calls it a dance! Their beautiful works are in some of the finest art collections in the world.
Jack Maxwell, a world renowned sculptor, is also an art professor and a painter. He and his wife Jill travel to Europe each summer. Then, Jack paints the interiors of the world’s most beautiful buildings and cathedrals.
There is always something new for returning visitors to see at Reflection Gallery and we also continue to represent our permanent stable of artists for their returning collectors. We welcome all of you art lovers to Reflection whether you are buying or just enjoying our gallery.
