How lovely on this grey winter morn to discover the wonderful art of Three Graces Gallery. I have to give credit for my discovery to Kim Naumann, a great artist in her own right, for including some of the gallery's artwork in her Flickr stream. Three Graces, out of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, was founded in 2004 by artist Kim Ferreira to provide a forum for "an eclectic variety of paintings, sculpture,
mixed-media, pottery, jewelry and fine
furniture." Indeed! Take a look:

encaustic painting, by Kate Phillips ~
The name has its roots in Greek mythology:
"The classic pose of The Three Graces is said to reflect the three aspects of the gift: giving, accepting, and returning. Like the Muses, they were believed to endow artists and poets with the ability to create beautiful works of art."

mixed-media on canvas, by Sarah Ogren ~
This is just a sampling of the paintings and works on paper. There is an incredible variety of work in various mediums on the site, as well as on Kim Ferreira's Flickr,
like the Teeny Tiny 4 set.

If you're in the New hampshire area try to see the upcoming show of Teeny Tiny works at The Three Graces Gallery, February 6th through March 3rd, as well as other exhibits.
