LOVE this mix of old and new- in more than one way. John Brophy designs his paintings in a 3d modeling program- then once it’s to his liking he recreates it completely over again in oil paint- the mix of old an new techniques create imagery that has a bit of uncannyness. Of course- a classical still life rendered in oils on panel of a Star Trek phaser just adds to the delightful mix of old and new. This piece is on view at the gallery for “Ace Of Spades, Queen Of Hearts” and we are excited to welcome John Brophy back to the gallery for a solo show this November! @jwbrophy

Peter Ferguson “Hedgerow Rebellion, 1962” oil on panel - this piece is in our latest show “Ace Of Spades, Queen Of Diamonds” now up at the gallery! The frustrating part with posting art on IG is that so many artists we exhibit work with meticulous detail and that’s hard to show on a tiny screen! Definitely take a closer look! @ethicsgradient2000

A detail shot of of a WIP by Josie Morway... known for her incredible, hyper realistic and mystical paintings of birds and mammals- Morway’s new pieces are exploring some new elements - like this dessert disaster caused by some naughty corvids! We’ll reveal the whole piece soon- Morway has a solo at the gallery this October! DM us to be placed on a preview list! @josiemorway

This beauty is on view at Roq La Rue- the latest trilobite (Paracerurus exsul- 440 million years old) painstakingly recreated from fossil evidence by D Allan Drummond. This bronze sculpture is removable from its custom made wall mount so you can inspect all the detail as well as use it to chase small unruly children around- what better way to install a love of science and natural history? This is an edition of only 5. @dadrummond #naturalhistory #trilobite #ancientarthropod

After the “Heart of Gold” bronze and amethyst hinged hearts by Debra Baxter sold out at her recent Roq show- she was inspired to create a new version! This piece is hand carved by Debra and then cast in bronze and double silver plated. Quartz is hand inlaid after. “Silver Heart” is available at the gallery for the “Ace Of Spades, Queen Of Diamonds” show opening Thursday August 8th! @debrabaxterstudio #crystal #ghostheart

Artist Jeff Jacobson and I had been talking about a mutual appreciation for the hummingbird paintings of 19th century painter Martin Johnson Heade- all featuring exotic orchids and birds set against a hazy distant tropical background. When I asked him to do our first mural in Roq’s current space- he took that concept and updated it- using birds, flowers, and a background all culled from our Pacific Northwest landscapes and species! @jefferytjacobson

Strange things are afoot at the Roq! It’s installation time at the gallery which is one part Christmas, one part cat circus, one part hair pulling out. But this place is going to look unbelievable come Thursday for the “Ace of Spades, Queen of Diamonds” show! Join us won’t you? Or DM us to get the email collectors preview... #gallerylife #popsurrealism #capitolhillartwalk

We met artist Isabel Samaras 20 years ago when we hosted a show curated by Lisa Petrucci called “Dangerous Dolls”- a survey of female artists working in the Lowbrow art movement. Bowled over by her naughtily humorous and kitschy takes on pop culture we’ve been pleased to work with Isabel over the years and that includes having this stunning piece in our upcoming show “Ace Of Spades, Queen Of Diamonds” opening this Thursday and celebrating being open and serving the good stuff for over two decades! @lil_lisa_petrucci
