Heather Gleason Art Studio opening..Holiday BOOtique December 5-6

Well good day to you all. I have been busy moving all my art into my new Art studio. Working from home was fun but in reality I had so much, that it got real cluttered and I was unorganized. Moving into this new amazing space I will be able to move around and paint as many things as I like. Clutter free and much more organized. Customer service is top priority and having this studio will be much easier shipping orders and making custom pieces more pleasant to handle.

I will let the public come into my space on December 5-6th Saturday 11-6Pm Sunday 11-4 PM

I will have all sorts of paintings, functional art pieces, furniture and prints for sale. My twist on Christmas will be abundant through out my gallery space. A comfortable warm setting for you to shop this holiday season. If you would like to RSVP to this event email me with your full name and number of guests attending and I will have a goody bag waiting upon your arrival. You must RSVP to get your goody bag.You may come at anytime durring the BOOtique hours.

My studio is in the beautiful Historic Shirt factory in Kingston.

Shirt Factory 77 Cornell street Kingston, NY second floor studio 201 Plenty of parking in the parking lot beside the building.

I would like to see many of you and look forward to this fun filled weekend.

I will add more photos as my studio comes to full use 🙂

Rock and Redemption Jewelry Designer Michael Spirito

My dear friend Jewelry designer Michael Spirito of Exhibitionist Jewelry design is coming out with an affordable line through Sears on November 15th. Mikes “Rock and Redemption” line will have affordable price tags ranging from $40.00-$200.00 in sterling silver and stainless steel. Mikes designs have been collected by Rihanna, Gwen Stefani, and Beyonce. His touch of good girl gone bad, metal twisted with beautiful crystals and precious stones is a must have. Michael will have a range of designs for both Men and women. He is a Featured Designer this month on CFDA “Council Of Fashion Designers Of America”. Here is his write up from the CFDA website…..

Beginning early November, Rock & Redemption by Michael Spirito will premier exclusively at Sears’ top 200 urban locations. Rock & Redemption will adhere closely to Spirito’s core creative imagery of serpents, spikes, crowns, crosses and roses, but unlike the designer-priced Exhibitionist line, the Sears brand will retail from $40 to $200, and will be made in sterling silver, steel, and crystal. “My handmade work for the Exhibitionist collection has been featured heavily in the fashion press – by creating Rock & Redemption with Sears my jewelry will be able to reach a broader American audience — who are looking for authentic rock star style as well as great quality” says Spirito.

At the age of eight, Michael was already fascinated by metal-smithing and design. A decade later this pastime had grown into an income-producing business. Designing and selling jewelry at Grateful Dead concerts and on the streets of New York City, Michael was able to support himself while studying at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology. A few more years of training and experimentation later, he launched the jewelry brand that would make his name synonymous with tough chic rocker style. Michael was soon bestowed at Gen Art Design Vision award and in 2007 he was inducted into the Council of Fashion Designers of America.

For Sears, Rock & Redemption by Michael Spirito will be their first foray into branded jewelry. “Michael has the right look for our younger, hip customers, and we’re very excited to provide them with unique and affordable brands, , in addition to our core fine jewelry assortment.” says Michelle Pearlman, SVP of Jewelry at Sears.
