Art & Frame fans! We have a new local artist hanging in our Lee's Summit gallery, be sure to come in and take a look! We are introducing Rand Lohman, from Lee's Summit, MO!

Pieces shown are titled "The Spiral of Life: The Season's Turning" (top), and "The Spiral of Life: Introspection's Journey" (bottom).

A little bit from the Artist Statement:

"Nature is full of spirals for different reasons. The interplay between atoms, physical forces, and matter creates spirals out of galaxies and describes the path of celestial rotations as systems move through space. This spiraling movement drives seasons and brings new moons and eclipses around the globe. Shells and plants develop in spirals because it is the most efficient way for them to grow. The basis of some mathematics is found within nature's spirals which may explain why it was important as a sacred form in ancient cultures and why it is still used in art, design, and architecture. Humans discovered the mathematical and proportional beauty of the spiral in nature and for millennia, draw upon it as an inspiration of aesthetic creations".

Art & Frame Warehouse Fans! 

We are pleased to announce our new local artist show, featuring Tom Mallot! 

Stop by our Lee's Summit location to view his work, and help support local artists! 

Short Bio:

Tom has been making photographic images for over 60 years, always visualizing his surroundings for the possibilities of an interesting image.

Many years of darkroom procedures and processes have given him the insight for making a good print, with black and white techniques being his first love.

For 15 years, Tom has worked with a dying art known as polaroid emulsion and image transfers. This is another way for Tom to effectively present his images.

Tom hopes that his work will provoke in the viewer a positive emotional response and meaningful experience.
