Who knew the back of a frame could be so fascinating? We’ve been posting photos to point-and-shoot social network Instagram for the past few weeks, and it has inspired us to show sides of our gallery (and artwork) that visitors rarely get to see. Check out some of our favorite shots below, and follow @matthewsgallery on Instagram for more.
When this little art fan rolled in, we couldn’t help but note his resemblance to our Mary Cassatt pastel “Head of Baby with Finger in Mouth”. His dad graciously held him up for a comparison shot.
Paintings hide away in our storage closet, waiting for their day on the wall.
To accompany our blog post on sculptor Hannah Holliday Stewart, we put up some additional images from her personal files. Check back for more updates on the brilliant artist who vanished into the mythical world of her work.
Eric G. Thompson’s next show “Breaking Through with Light” isn’t until August 2, but some of the work has already arrived. We took some photos while unpacking the crates, but kept the new canvases partly under wraps. Make sure to mark the show on your calendar!
Jac Kephart pounded hundreds of nails through a panel to create mixed media work “Red Mantis”. Click the image to see the front of the panel.
