Join us Tuesday, January 21st for our Visiting Artist Reception

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to attend a reception for the latest Visiting Artists at The Lipman Group Sotheby’s International Realty. Beginning on January 21, the paintings of Gary Oglander and the pottery of Evamarie Pappas-Oglander will be on display in our Green Hills office.

The Oglander canvas and clay exhibit will be on display at The Lipman Group Sotheby’s International Realty’s Green Hills office for the next six months. Join us Tuesday, January 21 from 5 – 7 p.m., for a meet & greet with the Oglanders, refreshments and live music.

“Gary and Eva Oglander have been a part of the Nashville art scene for more than 30 years, and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to feature their extraordinary work in our gallery space,” said Lawrence M. Lipman, owner and president.

Eva was drawn to pottery, and now she is a sculptor and graphic designer. Her clay work is completed with the raku method, which allows her pottery to develop a multi-textured surface. This style allows Eva’s work to mimic ancient pottery rather than a fresh from the kiln piece.

Gary has been painting for more than 30 years – with his work on display at the Tennessee State Museum, as well as the Presidential Suite at the Opryland Hotel. He teaches art in his home studio, focusing his teachings on the process and mood of art, rather than focusing too heavily on technique.

Join us from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m., at 2002 Richard Jones Road, Suite C-104 to view these extraordinary works of art.  The reception, which is free and open to the public, will include a meet & greet with the Oglanders, refreshments and live music. A portion of proceeds from all art sales will benefit a local charity.

Sponsors of the Visiting Artist Series include Windmill Title, Signature Homes, and FirstBank Mortgage Partners – Green Hills. The Lipman Group Sotheby’s International Realty is known for artfully uniting extraordinary properties with extraordinary lives and this special event will unite extraordinary local artists with Nashville homeowners.

AN EXTRAORDINARY EVENT

The Lipman Group Sotheby’s International Realty in Nashville, TN, recently hosted a welcome exhibition for Visiting Artist, Janet Barnette. The event was a smashing hit, with over 200 people in attendance, and numerous pieces sold throughout the evening.

“The entire team at RE/MAX Homes and Estates was very excited to have fellow agent Janet Barnette’s work on display. This event marries Nashville’s vibrant art culture with our brand’s rich history in the art world,” said Lawrence Lipman, managing broker.

After the success of the evening, Janet shared the stories behind each piece.

“Every Dog Has Its Day”
Like my abstracts, my signature pieces with women fashionably dressed were well received. I could have sold a dozen more.  Should someone desire a special commissioned work, please provide images that you wish to be a part of the painting like photos of yourself, your loved one, your pet or just something that you love.

“Against the Rule”
A spectator of this painting told me this story.As the buyer was walking past the painting, she stopped suddenly because it took her eye. She gazed into the painting as if studying every detail.  She commented that she really liked the painting.  Then, she read the title, “Against the Rule”.  She said, “That’s my life, I have to have it.”

“Milo”
During the show, a customer requested a painting of herself with her two dogs.  Paraphrasing, her husband said, “I guess we’ll do that because when it comes to the dogs, he’s in second place.”

“The A-List”
“The A-List” is a special piece with seven confident ladies and a happy dog.  The buyers were deciding between this painting and “Belle of the Ball” for the powder room in their home.  For many reasons, they selected the “The A-List”,  but followed-up by saying that if “Belle of the Ball” didn’t sell during the show, they would purchase it as well.  It sold.

“Bell of the Ball”
A crowd favorite, the new owner of this piece contacted me the day after the show wanting the painting that hung beside it of a woman with her dog, which sold during the show.  The buyer said “Oh, but you can paint another one.” And, I will.

“Trilogy 1”
“Trilogy 2”
“Trilogy 3”
A buyer came to me to discuss the three pieces of Trilogy 1, 2, 3.Sold separately, she commented how well they work individually but they really compliment each other and need to stay together.I thought we were just having a casual conversation.After a 30 second pause of silence, she calmly said“I’ll take all three !”   My heart jumped with joy and I raced to get the sold stickers.  As I was placing the first sticker on “Trilogy 1”, I overheard Larry Lipman, the Owner and President of The Lipman Group Sotheby’s International Realty, say to the lady beside him, “You better hurry before they are gone.”

“Sassy”
On loan from a private collection, a request to paint a similar piece for a woman’s daughter attending fashion school will be a wonderful gift from her mother.

“The Black Hole”
This painting was placed on a 48-hour hold so the buyer could discuss the purchase with their spouse.

“Temptation”
Presold prior to the show; however, I have requests for more like it.  As the show will hang through December, I will add new ladies to the collection for sale.  Please feel free to stop by the office anytime to view new works. Remember, Christmas is right around the corner.

AN EXTRAORDINARY COLLABORATION

We are thrilled to announce that our office will be transformed over the following week as our latest Visiting Artist Series is installed and we invite you to join us as we unveil the works of our latest Visiting Artist, Janet Barnette, next Tuesday July 16 from 5:00-7:00 pm.

Janet Barnette, RE/MAX Homes and Estates

Janet Barnette, RE/MAX Homes and Estates

Barnette, one of The Lipman Group’s own agents, will feature work from her series “RED without Boats or Birds.”  The reception, which is free and open to the public, will include a meet & greet with Janet, refreshments and live music by Chris Nathan.

“The Visiting Artist Series has been a fantastic addition to our new office, and I’m thrilled to feature the work of one of our own talented agents,” said Lawrence M. Lipman, owner and president.  “Janet’s work, both on and off the canvas, is inspiring and it’s going to be a fantastic addition to the gallery space.”

Barnette, a Nashville resident for three decades, graduated in 1978 from Anderson University, earning a BA in art and business administration.  The double major reflects her balanced approach to life.

“Real estate demands meticulous attention to detail, and my art offers a counter-balance to what can be, from time-to-time, an all-consuming profession.”

Since 1999, she’s been a real estate Broker with The Lipman Group Sotheby’s International Realty.  Even with the increased demands of her real estate career, she found time to combine her successful real estate business with her enthusiasm to paint. Her first public showing in 2000 was at the gallery Local Color.

RED
Abstract by Janet Barnette

Now, Janet is ready to share her artistic passion and original paintings once again. Her love of abstract painting is appreciated in her signature works, which concentrates on the fashion world encapsulating poise and whimsy in brilliant color.  Janet’s natural talent was influenced in her early years by her sister and recognized West Coast artist, Debbie Roskopf.  She initially derived her technique by studying under Don Weisflog at AU’s prestigious school of art.

RED
Women by Janet Barnette

Later, one of her favorite art studies took her to Greece in 2004 with Charles Gruppe, who comes from one of America’s most respected family of artists.  She came away from that experience knowing a splash of red adds excitement to every painting and boats always sell a painting. Furthermore, as Gruppe assisted his students with their work, he would take their brush and stroke-in a few birds in the sky flying just off in the distance. In most of Janet’s work, you will definitely find the emphasis of RED but without the boats or birds.

Sponsors of the Visiting Artist Series include Summit Funding and Windmill Title. A portion of proceeds from art sales will benefit the Nashville Humane Association.

Janet’s extraordinary art will be on display through December. Please come by our office in Green Hills, located at 2002 Richard Jones Road, Suite C-104, Nashville TN 37215.

Join us Thursday, February 7th for our Visiting Artist Reception

RE/MAX Homes and Estates invites you to join us on Thursday, February 7, 2013 as we unveil the works of our new Visiting Artist : Marabeth Quin.

“Happiness is actually my work — not painting.  The works of art are the byproduct of my consistent devotion to the act of focusing on the wonderful bounty all around me.”

Marabeth Quin moved from her home state of Arkansas to Nashville, TN in 1987 and had a fulfilling career as a studio musician for well over twenty years.  When she was in her mid-30’s she took up painting for the clarity and pleasure it provided, and incidentally since 2007, has found a lively new career path with placements in homes from Hawaii to Florida, as well as corporate collections on display at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital and UBS of Nashville.

“The process that I came to through experimentation is an unusual mix of extreme texture combined with transparent acrylic built up through multiple layers of application.  When the painting is complete, I apply a coat of varnish that deepens the color as if still wet while reaching down and reflecting every layer of transparent paint that was applied.  The result is a rich, creamy appearance that is unique and highly recognizable.  It has a dream-like quality …”

Join us from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm Thursday, February 7, as we unveil the works of Marabeth Quin in our Green Hills office.

I love how one piece of art can transform a space. It says so much about a person. Each painting I do has my personality in it and when someone associates with that – you’ve made a connection with them.” -Dana Kahan
