In Our Gallery
Our Art Gallery is adjacent to Inside Angles framing design center. In 2009, we worked to redefine our use of that gallery. For years we exhibited a variety of original art and prints with fabulous framing and glass applications. We still have a supply of framed art for sale, but the gallery is being used now to exhibit original art created by artists we know and trust.

The art exhibits run from four to eight weeks. We regularly host openings with food, beverages, and entertainment. The gallery is just the right size for one-artist shows. Each display is carefully assembled, then we freshen up the walls so the exhibit takes on the artist's style and feeling. They are absolutely remarkable and the images offered are often a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for our customers.

Current Exhibit

"So foul and fair a day I have not seen, a 9/11 Memorial Exhibit"

So Foul and Fair a Day - Carolyn Ellingson

So Foul and Fair a Day
Carolyn Ellingson, watercolor

On September 11, 2001, people from all over the world were stunned by images of airliners being flown into the New York City’s World Trade Center Towers. All aircraft were ordered to land nationwide, while two more terrorist controlled jets were flown into the Pentagon and grounded by a passenger revolt in Pennsylvania. Americans stood frozen in front of their televisions, not knowing, not comprehending, helpless to change the events which had passed and ones yet to come.

In San Francisco, Carolyn Ellingson, a middle-aged artist, was holed-up in her studio. Taking in the news, hearing reports, Ellingson tried desperately to process the information being shared. She stood at her easel allowing her emotions to take form in color and shape. When she finished one painting, she began another, taking time at the end of each painting to document notations and quotes in its borders.

Ellingson was just beginning to feel the effects of a fast-acting cancer, she died in April 2012. Her 9/11 series is one of the last she completed, and remains a collection in her son’s care.

Inside Angles is honored to present this collection to the public for the first time. Take the time to tour our gallery at Inside Angles as we present, “So foul and fair a day I have not seen, a 9/11 Memorial Exhibit.” The exhibit begins with photos and facts about the events of September 11, 2001; proceeds to watercolors produced by Carolyn Ellingson as she processed news reports; and concludes with poetry written by a local businessman, internationally published. They are full of emotion, rage and concern and are riveting to experience.

The display, "So foul and fair a day I have not seen, a 9/11 Memorial Exhibit" will begin on September 6, and continue through the Sept. 28. A reception to honor these works will take place on Friday, September 27, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime experience at Inside Angles, 6831 Angola Rd, adjacent to Taste of Toledo in Holland. Call 419-867-3533 for more information.

Carolyn Ellingson: "Socko, The Thrill of Art!"

Red Abstract, #32

Red Abstract, #32
23.5" h x 17.5" w
monotype

"Socko! The Thrill of Art" was shown from April through June of 2013. The show featured dozens of monotype and intaglio prints, and oil, acrylic, and watercolor paintings produced by the late San Francisco painter Carolyn Ellingson during a 30-year-period from the 1980s to her death in 2002. Ellingson’s versatile work bursts with vigor and vulnerability, with bold colors and forms that are abstract but familiar.

She also enjoyed unusual titles for her work. Some examples: "Pyromaniac’s Love Song with Charred Remains", "Emancipated Eye", "Optically Induced Event", "Cyclamen Clouds Over a Crystalline Sea", "Little Yellow Extravagance", "Simultaneous Occurrences", "Delicate Negotiations", and "But Will It Match the Couch?".

This was the first exhibition of feature Carolyn's art since her death, runs through Mon, June 17th. See more of her work and read about her here. Her sons, including Randy Ellingson of Toledo, curate the site, Artgroove.com.

The World's Longest Lemonade Stand

June 11, 2011 at the Lucas County Recreation Center

Click here to find your photo!

It was a long day but hopefully we met all the demands to break the world's record for longest lemonade stand. We won't know until August if we actually broke the record, but in the meantime, you can further benefit Children's Cancer Research through Inside Angles custom framing:

Purchase the 3 ½" x 5" keepsake photo, taken at the lemonade stand, with mat, sized to fit a 5" x 7" ready-made frame. The cost for photo and mat is $6 plus tax.
Purchase the matted and framed 3 ½" x 5" keepsake photo for $39 plus tax
When we become certified record-breakers, you can order the photo in the same frame with an official Guinness Book Record Certificate. The cost of this item is to be determined when the certificates come in.
Bring in something you would like to have framed or re-framed, mention the lemonade stand or children's cancer research.
