Mythic Indian Images

February 24, 2017 | by Stephen Silveira

We are always looking for artwork that plays to the area interest in artwork featuring Native Americans.  Hawkes is our latest artist represented at Alpine Home, and has recently introduced a series of original oils on both canvas and etched metals.  Alpine Home is offering both the originals and fine art quality reproductions to fit all client needs.

Ancestral Vision 1 & 2 are 27″ x 27″x 3″ original compositions of oil and layered mixed media on an etched metal surface.  Priced at $2150 each.

Skybound Vision is a large scale 51″ x 47″ composition of oil and layered mixed media on canvas. The image is gallery wrapped with a reveal and is  framed in a lacquered wood.  Priced at $6950.

I was fortunate enough to meet Hawkes at the trade-only-gallery (for which we are dealers) on my most recent buying trip.  The separate studio area is a work space for the cadre of artists associated with the gallery atelier; a  group of artists he draws both inspiration from, as well as the sharing of ideas and techniques.  (The use of etched metal surfaces as well as acrylic are among the new techniques being explored by the gallery artists)


Prints Available at Alpine Home in Tahoe City

Earth bound and Sky bound Vision are two of the original art pieces  by Hawkes that Alpine Home offers as canvas reproductions which are gallery wrapped on 2″ stretchers and painted with espresso paint on sides.  Sized at 40″ x 36″, the approximate image size of the originals,  these pieces feature standard paint embellishment and are priced at $945 each.  The reproductions can also be more heavily embellished to duplicate the original art pieces more closely and framed if the client desires.  Image size can also be scaled up or down proportionately.   This gives Alpine Home, our clients, and the design professionals we work with a wide variety of options to suit most budgets and space requirements.
