Crest Mountain Custom Stained Glass by Gallery's Choice Installed today

A Legacy in Light

Family legacy in light delivered! A Spring 2021 highlight as Gallery’s Choice installs a memorable custom art glass window in it’s forever home. This work, designed and fabricated by artists Rose and Bill Jarecki, was inspired by the creativity of a loving family, and holds in it a deeper meaning for life and spirit. “It was truly our honor to work on this stained glass artwork,” noted Rose Jarecki, owner/artist of Gallery’s Choice. “As an artist it is so rewarding to know your work is meaningful and will bring lasting joy.”

Moving Mountains

Sometimes the task ahead of you seems so great, like moving a mountain! And sometimes, the task of an artist is to build that mountain. In glass, of course! Every time I select a glass for one of our commissions, it is with more than just the color that I have in mind. I know the heritage that each piece of glass carries with it, and the legacy of many more artisans hands that went into the manufacture of the beautiful materials, the exquisite palette, I have to work with! As we undertake the latest commission work at Gallery’s Choice, I thought I’d share a peek behind the scenes at one of those projects in process as we move mountains for our customers!

Elegant Home Accents

Antique cut crystal plates steal center stage for these eye catching custom designed kitchen cabinet door inserts. This series of doors features two sizes of matching ornate plates. Fabrication took extra care, as required by any three dimensional add-in to a stained glass project. This coupled with exacting geometry gave this project its challenges! These breathtaking results are sure to be a family treasure! Design Idea: This elegant design could also be executed using a collection of mismatched glass plates in various sizes or colors for a more casual boho or eclectic feel! A great way to use those incomplete sets of heirloom plates you can’t quite bear to part with because they are just too pretty! Bring your custom design idea to us a Gallery’s Choice and see how easy it can be to create a cherished addition to your home’s decor!

This morning…

I couldn’t wait to get up and start blogging! I know that sounds strange. But this is a very important step for Gallery’s Choice. Having a place to share a stream of consciousness about the life and times of this business, my art work, and approach to teaching is an exciting new frontier for our business. Everything we do in this business is hands-on and labor intensive. And, as most small businesses, capital is scarce. Advertising has always been expensive, and today, well, the traditional means of advertising just don’t work. Today advertising is organic – back to the tried and true, where content is king, and our value add will be in the information we share.
