New Contemporary Art For Fall

Leave a reply

We’re getting ready to release our latest preview collection and thought we’d share a sneak-peek at our upcoming imagery.

Lately, clients have been asking us for Beach House art. Since Fall has officially arrived here in Seattle – the rain, earlier sunsets and crisp air even when the sun is shining – we thought we’d warm things up with reminders of the great Summer we just enjoyed.

These contemporary beach scenes from Liz Jardine ought to do the trick!

Lodge Art is another theme that we hear a lot about. Think lots of wood, warm cozy fires and deep rich colors, especially as Winter approaches. These captivating animals by Lisa Ridgers gallop into the Lodge theme beautifully!

Floral Art is always on-trend. Look at these timelessly gorgeous pieces by KC Haxton & Lisa Ridgers.

Stay tuned, we have many exclusive new images coming your way, from Abstracts to Cityscapes and Landscapes.

A Summer Intern’s Perspective

Francis Henn, Third & Wall Intern

This summer I worked as an intern at Seattle art company Third & Wall Art Group. My various duties were to bill orders, send invoices, deposit checks and so on. Aside from that, however, I was assigned to a project with two other colleagues. We were called the Growth Committee, and our task was to examine industry trends, competitor strategies, customer needs and the overall business model of Third & Wall with the goal of discovering opportunities for growth.

While working at Third & Wall, it is safe to say that  I learned a lot. As a college student with little professional experience, especially with art galleries, it was a great opportunity to see how a business works while contributing my own efforts. Looking back, it’s funny to picture myself with my long hair and earrings sitting at a desk with a cup of coffee entering checks on a computer, but I am incredibly lucky to have had the chance to do that. I am thankful for the numerous times I was taken out of my comfort zone when customers called my line needing questions answered. As weird as it may sound, I think that being made uncomfortable at times is one of the best ways to learn. I now have some business and customer service conversational skills that I would have never had before.

Beyond the business and learning aspects, my time with Third & Wall was full of laughs, wonderful people, Whole Foods cake and, of course, great imagery. I have a new-found appreciation for art and business, two things I hope to expand upon in the future. Thanks for a great summer at Third & Wall!

We just finished working on a great project for a hotel lobby in California, and wanted to share some of the pictures from our client who was delighted with the finished product. We love when that happens!

Work In Progress

Countless artists work alone in their studios. Many have carved out room in their homes, others have converted garages or sheds or have taken the leap to rent a studio space. Some work in art lofts where they have lots of artists as neighbors. But for most, it is a solo work environment. While this provides the space to paint without interruption, creative solitude can sometimes leave the artist feeling uninspired. Some artists prefer to pursue to their visions in solitary, while others flourish and grow creatively with the feedback and inspiration of fellow creatives.

Despite the need for artists and creatives to share ideas, trends or techniques, in the art world it has been considered taboo for an outsider to “tweak” an artist’s creation. Yet in all other art fields – dance, music, writing – collaborating and editing are standard practice and serve to help the artist meet their full potential within their art form.

When selecting artists for representation we look for those who welcome outside collaboration and idea exchange during the creative process. Our years of working with clients in the décor market have given us valuable insights on color palettes and image trends that can elevate an artwork into a more universal and desirable place in the art market.

Here are a few recent examples of artworks that resulted from our creative collaboration directly with the artist:

For our artists, creative feedback and suggestions informed by our décor market trend knowledge is invaluable and often contributes a great deal to the sales success of their imagery.
