Yes Yes Yes. You knew it was coming.
How could I finish this magnificent year without highlighting Galleries from 2021?
Where did 2021 go, anyway?
There’s not much that gives me more joy than discovering and sharing unique, different, and spectacular artists. Every time I come across something new I can’t wait to share it with you.
I go back and wander through my galleries often — I am always amazed at the individual and different kinds of creativity that wait back there for me — and you — to explore.
So allow me a few minutes of showing off. Here are some of the highlights from the Gallery of 2021.

MAY YOU ALL HAVE A HAPPY, PROSPEROUS, AND VERY CREATIVE NEW YEAR!
Award winning recycled Sculptured Bell artist Doug Adams grew up in Fielding, Utah on a small Appaloosa horse ranch & farm.
After graduating from high school, Doug served his country in the military’s branch of Utah National Guard for five years.
Upon his return from basic training & advanced training as a tank mechanic, he found employment constructing a large steel mill located nearby & a year later he began his 30 year career in the steel industry.
Doug created his first bell using a recycled cylinder in the early 80’s but it wasn’t until he met his wife Dianne that they started creating one of a kind sculptured bells using many of the same techniques Doug became so familiar with in the steel industry.
Old tools, well worn machinery, old car parts are all sculptures in the making for Doug’s artistic endeavors.
His wife Dianne creates one of a kind glass in her art studio for each sculpture that’s created.
Each unique bell stand is designed for its respective bell and given Doug’s trademark distressed patina.
Each piece is carefully made to stand the test of time to be enjoyed by generations to come, both for indoor and outdoor settings.
