KVIE ART AUCTION 2007 :  september 14-16


view KVIE pieces


W Gallery and Studios was awarded Best Gallery by the KVIE Public Television 2007 Art Auction. After three years establishing their presence in the growing Sacramento art scene, W Gallery's unique approach was recognized in the five pieces submitted for review by KVIE's panel of judges. "Art is meant to be appreciated with other art," states Lisa Watts, co-owner and artist at W Gallery. "The five abstract pieces we submitted included acrylic on canvas, sculpture, photography and blown glass. Despite the different mediums, they all evoke a warmth that invites interaction from the viewer. Separately and together, they are provocative and engaging."

The KVIE judges seemed to agree, awarding the overall gallery honor as well as individual accolades. Lora Watts' submission received second place for oils and acrylics. Rick and Janet Nicholson also received second place for in the arts and crafts category. The presentation also included striking photography by Geanina Watts and a powerful sculpture by Thien Dao, and was finished off by a dramatically simple geometric painting by Lisa Watts. Another W Gallery artist, Gayle Rappaport-Weiland, was selected individually as a 2007 Special Collections Artist.

While the winning pieces will be sold during KVIE's annual Art Auction on September 14-16, 2007, W Gallery will continue to show related work at its midtown Sacramento location. "We believe in consistently presenting approachable abstracts," states Watts. For W Gallery, art isn't about a single artist, or a single piece. They present multiple artists and media in a 360 degree experience within the gallery. Locally and nationally recognized artists, including David Foster, Red Wolf, Emily Kalina, Thien Dao, and Rick and Janet Nicholson will be appearing at the gallery throughout the year.   view KVIE pieces
