Bryan Collins Coffee Girls - reserve one now!

The Coffee Girls by Bryan Collins have been a huge success. Every piece so far is sold. For the rest of this year, Bryan will be making one Coffee Girl each month, named and themed for the month. The first piece, “Fiona February” is sold, but deposits can be made for the remaining 11 pieces that are coming up. Each one measures 5″x7″ and is Prismacolor pencils on cold press illustration board.

If you want to reserve a Coffee Girl for a particular month, please message Bryan at A $25 deposit (through Paypal) will hold the piece for you and you will be guaranteed to own the Coffee Girl for the month of your choice. THESE ARE FIRST COME FIRST SERVE and no month will be duplicated; just one piece per month. The final price for the art by itself is $125 or Bryan will have the piece custom matted and framed with non-glare glass for a total of $175. Payments can be made during the time you are waiting for your piece to be complete, so the farther out your month is, the more time you will have to pay.

Please message before you send a deposit, just to make sure the month you want is still available. Since this series has started in February, January of 2010 will be the last piece. This means March ‘09 through Jan ‘10 are available NOW. Message Bryan NOW if you want your birthday month or some other special month reserved - first come, first serve

New Work by Kirsten Savage

I have been revisiting the photographs I took this past October and turning them into new paintings that showcase the changing colors of fall. I will be displaying these newest leaf paintings along with doing a live painting demonstration for our upcoming First Friday Art Opening.

Recent Work - Forrest Harrison Gerke

Hello, this if Forrest, one of the artists with The Gallery Underground. If you've been to our openings, I have a space in the back. Here are some photos from our February opening of some of the work I had displayed in my space. I'm currently in the process of creating new pieces in preparation for the March opening. If you'd like to see more of my work, please visit my website at There's a lot of great stuff being done by my fellow artists in the gallery, and so I'm very excited about our next show. Feel free to stop by sometime to say hello and see how the work is coming.

Our New Blog!

The artists of The Gallery Underground recently met and decided to put up a blog to document the goings on in the gallery. We had a great turn out to our First Friday opening this month and are all really looking forward to the next one on March 6th from 6-10pm. Discussions have been made about possibly expanding and adding new events in addition to our popular First Friday openings. When more finalized plans come together, we will make sure to spread the word. There's a lot of exciting new work going on in the gallery, and so as things progress, we hope to update this blog with more information about what we've been up to.
