O, How Art Matters: PEG’s First News of 2016!

The Holidays were very busy at PEG—and not just the Holidays, but the year. Miranda Updike’s show “CROWD PLEASER” and Kate Sullivan’s “BIRDS IN HIGH PLACES” were our best attended and sold shows of 2015, BUT every month this year saw really strong sales for our PEG artists, foot traffic growing, and many out of state buyers. Congratulations to EVERYONE, for creating and appreciating!

It is MORE than worth mentioning the fine artists who graced our walls in 2015: Ron Emmerling, Jessica Hachmeister, Steve Martin, Jay McCarthy, Sorin Bica, Daphne Confar, Lisa Gore, Jennifer Jean Costello, Cara Gonier, Beverly Rippel, Tobin Eckian, Sam Buck Rosen, David Short, Kay Bice, Zsuzsanna Donnell, Paula Estey, Lisa Victoria, Dylan Metrano, Robin Solit, Lindley and Jeff Briggs, Heidi Newfell, Miranda Updike & Kate Sullivan

Thank you for helping, guiding and teaching us how to fulfill our mission!

"… to provide our clients and visitors the transcendent beauty of contemporary art.
In doing so, our homes, commercial spaces and communities are elevated
and the quality of our lives improves.
 We embrace a global range for our art and artists."

Thank you to every artist, not only the beloveds we represent, but those who came to show us your work. Thank you to the visitors, from casual observer to collector—you make it so worthwhile! You teach us how to be better art dealers and educators. Thank you to the team PEG has in her corner, from staff to a wealth of art collaborators, to our beloved friends and family.

We are truly humbled by the effect beauty has, in and on our world, and we remain dedicated to contributing more of it in every way this year.

2016 is full of promise!

We are calling it “The Year of Art Appreciation” to celebrate the inherent collaboration that is Art, from creator to viewer to purview. Our Salons and Exhibitions will support this goal, throughout the year…..
