    Advanced Pastel Techniques/Landscapes!

    The second class will elaborate on landscape composition and provide some advanced techniques of under painting with turp. or watercolor, layering and mixed media that will enhance your options in working in soft pastel.

     

    Materials – Full list provided with signup. Sanded paper preferred as support. 9 x 12 sheets will be for sale @ $2.00 ea. You do not HAVE to do under painting to paint at this class and just work on other techniques and composition focus.

    NOTE: You do not have to have a huge number of pastels for these classes. This is more about getting started. Recommended brands: Rembrandt, Sennelier, even Nupastels which are considered hard pastels. A small beginners set is fine. Since it is landscape some greens and blues are recommended in your mix. This is a casual, get acquainted with the pastel medium opportunity, so bring what you can and get some help with the next steps!

  7. April…Our First Anniversary

    April 6, 2015 by Kate Barker

     

    IMG_4090

    This time last year, my sweet husband and I stood on a ledge overlooking a river of churning rapids. Not literally, but when reviewing our choices, that’s what it felt like. Should we close the antique store that had occupied one side of our lovely vintage downtown building in Redding? Or, should we step, well, more like plunge, into potentially perilously deep water?  Would we float or sink?

     

    DSC_0006 - Version 2

     

    We’d never been in the retail business, and we didn’t know much about antiques, but we did know about business. We’ve started several…some failed, others muddled along and a few proved to be amazingly profitable. So, hand in hand, we jumped…committing to keeping the delightful antique store afloat.

     

    1507771_543651219084649_1845090778_n

    We started with 10 dealers…and lots of uncertainty.

     

    rsz_1dsc_0104

     

    One year later, we have a full house…with 60 dealers and a beautiful new O Street Gallery that has been embraced by the art community! It’s been an amazing year! We are most grateful to our original 10 dealers who stuck with us, the new dealers who signed up with us and the Redding community and beyond, for their continued support. THANK YOU!!

  9. Two Weeks ~ Two Burglaries

    July 15, 2014 by Kate Barker

    Our beautiful antique store has been burglarized twice. Both times within a two-week span.

     

    These are photos of the first hit…

    DSC_0005      DSC_0003      DSC_0004

     

    A tsunami of crime has flooded our city. It’s everywhere. No area in our town  is off limits for the thieves roaming our city streets.

     

    The second hit on our store happened once again, in the wee hours of the morning. And once again, the burglars covered their faces, wore gloves and when the alarm sounded, they hotfooted out the door.

     

    IMG_4491

     

    We’re doing everything we know to do. We’ve installed an alarm system, surveillance cameras, and laminated glass doors. We’ve commissioned iron gates to be built for the front doors.

     

    We are determined to preserve and to protect our property. We love our little shop and our city. We hope and pray there will be an end to the flagrant disregard for other people’s property as we all stand our ground by continuing with our businesses. We cannot let these thugs take over our town!

  10. If You Open It, They Will Come

    July 5, 2014 by Kate Barker

    We’re excited to announce the opening of our 2nd Floor! Vendors have been working hard to curate their booth space for your shopping pleasure. Several dealers are all set up and while we’re not fully rented upstairs, we are ready for business. We can’t wait for you to come in and take a peek… up… the… stairs!

    Nine years ago, when the title to this beautiful old building at the corner of Shasta and Oregon Streets became ours, we had no idea how our lives would change. Wandering the downstairs we imagined the possibility of a variety of small shops. Ascending the staircase, a spacious second floor stretched before us. Almost immediately, we pictured an art gallery. We weren’t sure how it would take shape, or when we’d be able to do it, but we were convinced we wanted to do it.

     

    Now, our dream is coming true. The walls have been painted, the lights installed, and artists’ connections are beginning. We’ve opened up the second floor and we know it will fill with amazing vendors and incredible artists!

    See you on the 2nd Floor of the Oregon Street Antique Mall!!

     

    Have a fantastic day,
