Refreshing New Work From Jennie Tomao

It's rare that Chemers Gallery gets new work from Jennie Tomao, but we're thrilled to have SIX new paintings from this classical artist! Jennie has applied her jewel-like pallet to the landscape, creating early-morning glows, late afternoon haze, and dreamy sunsets.

Jennie's career has spanned over 50 years and she has many awards and accolades to show for it. She has painted not only beautiful renditions of the landscape, but gorgeous still life and figurative pieces as well. She is originally from New York City, where she attended the prestigious New York School of Music and Art and received an Award of Excellence from the Pittsburg Institute of Art.

Pasture and Stream; Oil on Board by Jennie Tomao
16 x 12

Jennie's landscapes, so detailed and life-like, invite you to step into her world. Pasture and Stream invokes stillness, with only the relaxing sounds of a babbling brook and birdsong to disturb the peace. Strongly influenced by Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot and George Innes, Jennie paints the setting for quiet reflection.

Beat the heat and enjoy the air conditioning and Jennie's cool landscapes at Chemers Gallery!

Artful Accessories for the Summer Season

Summer is truly here! Update your accessory wardrobe with some of this season's stylish picks!

Check out Icon Handbags whimsical and romantic designs on their luxurious Italian leather goods. Most recognizable is the image of Jan Vermeer's "Girl With a Pearl Earring" on coin purses, cosmetic cases and more. We just love the image of Gustav Klimt's "Water Serpents", which is complemented by gold or bronze leather. Check out the Peacock Buddha on our website; it's Karen's favorite! Namaste. Don't forget, Icon infuses each image into the leather, so it won't flake or rub off!

Right: Salome Silver Purse with Geode by Bo's Art Studio

For a sophisticated handbag that's a bit more unusual, go for one of these beauties from Bo's Art Studio. Created by incorporating fine stainless steel wire mesh with genuine gold wire, leaves, stones and fabrics, these evening bags are truly unique! Bozenna and Lukasz, husband and wife design team, bring their distinctly different talents and backgrounds to their work. She is a painter and textile artist and he is a lighting designer. Although the couple is originally from Poland, they live and make their handbags in Los Angeles.

Right: Hand-Woven Scarf by Georg Palmer

For the cooler temperatures of those summer nights, a lightweight Threadlace scarf by Hillary Gifford will be just the thing! Hillary combines fabrics and ribbons to create stunningly delicate masterpieces. Georg Palmer's colorful hand-woven scarves are lightweight enough for all seasons. You're sure to find something to coordinate with any of these fabulous finds. Just drape one around your neck, waist or shoulders and you're good to go! While not in use on your body, they make exquisite table runners.

Nothing says summer like dragonflies! Thanks to Anne Koplik's vintage-inspired metal, enamel and crystal baubles, you can adorn yourself with them year-round!
