Election Reds, Whites and Blues..

During this election season, show your colors by viewing some of our colorful pieces of artwork.

Rob Lorenson’s “Reaching for the Sun” in red is a spirited candidate for your attention.

Woven glass artists, Markow and Norris, have created the perfect blue piece to vote for in their “Goldfish Petal” table sculpture.

The beauty of Jill Fishon-Kovachick’s white raku vessel, “Winter," does not need to be debated, it’s a clear winner in terms of ceramics.

L'Attitude Gallery Coordinates Mosaic Workshop at Children's Hospital in Boston

Mosaic artist, Bette Ann Libby, is creating 16 new flower mosaics for the Parent Sleep Area at Children's Hospital in Boston - with the help of patients, their familes and CHB staff.

Eric Clapton purchases art from L'Attitude Gallery

We were surprised and delighted yesterday when guitar legend, Eric Clapton, came to the gallery -- and purchased several scuptural objects for his boat. Clapton is in Boston for a concert tomorrow night at the Tweeter Center. We were pleased that he stopped by and that we were able to find several stone scuptures (including four pieces by entertainment reporter turned stone sculptor Dixie Whatley), glass pieces and a ceramic vessel that suited his taste.

"Moon over White Mountain"

"Moon over White Mountain" is Roger Thomas' stunning new fused glass wall piece.  Roger creates his compositions using glass elements that he carefully cuts, arranges and layers.  The piece is then fired (sometimes several times) at very high temperatures.   You really have to see one of Roger's pieces to understand this dramatic medium.  The simple but classic iron frame (which Roger also designs) holds the glass in place and enhances its drama.  
Size is 51" w x 33" h x 2" d including frame.
