When Traci Zeller and I were designing our room for the Junior League of Greensboro/Traditional Homes Show House we knew we wanted to incorporate original art in our room. Luckily, the owners of Hidell Brooks Gallery , sisters, Rebecca Brooks and Katharine Hidell Thomas were kind enough to partner with us. Traci and I knew we wanted abstract art to create tension in the otherwise traditional space, so the process was simple. We went into Hidell Brooks Gallery showed them our fabrics, paints, etc and told them type of art we were looking for and they pulled pieces for us. When you are in the market for art, make sure you know the approximate size you need for your space, take any revalent fabrics, paint samples, etc. An experience gallery likeHidell Brooks will be able to guide you in your art selection. Also, if you don’t see something you like in the gallery, make sure you ask because they house many painting in their storage area. There is only so much space for hanging, so the piece you are looking for may not currently be on display.
Here are the two pieces we chose for our show house room.
The larger of the two pieces was “Seminole” by Sally King Benedict. Sally graduated from the College of Charleston. After graduation, she lived in Charleston for 10 years but recently returned to her roots and moved back to Atlanta, Ga.
Here are a few of my favorite currently in the Hidell Brooks gallery. Please take a few minutes and stop by to visit. Their new gallery space was decorated by my friend, Holly Hollingsworth Phillips and is just beautiful! The curation of artists they represent is the best in Charlotte. If you love art as much as I do, you will enjoy a visit to the gallery.
