About Brian Davis
The crisp, exuberant paintings of artist Brian Davis give as much meaningful insight into his dynamic, perfection driven personality as the floral renderings he creates. Meticulous in his process and passionate about his art, Davis never lets a piece out of his studio that is “sub-par.” The result has been a 30-year career filled with much-coveted art in Davis’ unique realist style.

“For an artist to be successful, a professional level of consistency is very important,” Davis explains. “I have spent many years working to achieve this goal. I feel very proud of the body of work that I have produced in my career.” From an early age, Davis was considered the artist in the family. After studying architecture for two years in college, he realized that fine art was where his heart truly was, so he shifted his focus.

Davis has enjoyed a successful career as an illustrator. However, he thought of illustration as more of a stepping-stone to his primary goal of a career in fine art. He entered the fine-art market in 1980 with an image of two calla lilies against a black background. The piece served as the poster image for a show of Davis’ work at the Long Beach Museum in Los Angeles. Through the years, Davis met some challenges, but he always managed to maintain an optimistic frame of mind. “Any profession that provides one with emotional satisfaction in addition to a livelihood is filled with strong competitors,” Davis says. “To be successful, an artist needs a tough, determined and have a positive mental attitude, in addition to talent.”

Roses by Matthew J. Cutter a 12" x 9" Oil on Board

About The Susan Kathleen Black Foundation - The Foundation, created for the advancement of art education, was initially established in 2001 as a memorial fund by James E. Parkman in honor of his wife, Susan Kathleen Black, who died unexpectedly just before Christmas 2000 after a lengthy illness.
Susan Kathleen was a devoted artist and student who took every opportunity to learn from master artists and skilled experts to develop her own talent. Her favorite workshops were at the Beartooth School of Wildlife Art in Big Timber, Montana, where she studied with many nationally known wildlife artists.
Since its creation, the memorial fund has awarded grants for art education to elementary schools in Texas and New Mexico; teen workshops in Montana and conferences for the development of professional artists in Divide, Colorado and Dubois, Wyoming. In addition, one full college art scholarship has been awarded.
In early 2003 the memorial fund was granted 501 (c )(3) status and became the Susan Kathleen Black Foundation, Inc. Its mission is to continue to fund art education for a broad range of art programs throughout the nation, while giving artists of all ages the opportunity to develop their skills and achieve their goals as artists.

Bill Mack and the Twins

Although Bill Mack typically does gallery work, Bill's relationship with the Pohlad family, (owners of the Minnesota Twins), inevitably lead him to once again add another group of sports figures to his already impressive resume of Sports Hall of Famers. Kirby Puckett, Harmon Killebrew, and Rod Carew are just a few of many Sports figures created By Bill Mack. Bill Mack has also created works from Peggy Fleming, Casey Tibbs, U.S. Hockey Hall of Famer Hobey Baker, Tennis legend Arthur Ashe, and many more.

A statue of Calvin Griffith, the first owner of the Minnesota Twins was unveiled on September 3rd outside the Target Field. The ceremony was joined by Twins fans as well as baseball legends, Harmon Killebrew, Rod Carew and the Griffith family. Bill is not finished as the Twins and the Pohlad family have also commissioned Bill to install a similar bronze statue of Carl and Eloise Pohlad later this Fall. A location for the unveiling has not yet been determined.

Bill Mack primarily works in relief sculpture, however, this project was especially unique. There were many reasons Bill decided to accept the commissions to create larger-than-life statues, however, a few simple reasons close to Bill Mack were enough to move forward. Bill was recently quoted in an ESPN article as saying, "This Twins project was unique, I'm a big Twins fan and it just seemed like a good marriage." Bill Mack is also a Minnesota Native and a has always enjoyed watching the Minnesota Twins.

Originally formed as the Salmagundi Sketch Club in 1871, the Club adopted its present name a hundred years ago after Washington Irving published his potpourri of wit and wisdom called "The Salmagundi Papers". Through the years the Club has been the singular gathering place for such great artists as Childe Hassam, William Merrit Chase, Howard Pyle, N.C. Wyeth, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Ogden Pleisner and many others. Honorary members have included such luminaries as Sir Winston Churchill, Buckminister Fuller, Paul Cadmus, Al Hirschfeld, Thomas Hoving and Schuyler Chapin.

Hanging the Gallery for the Royo Blancos Show

Just came back from the gallery (Brilliance In Color) and all I can say is WOW! This was my first sneak peak at the show in its entirety, amazing to say the least. This is by far one of the most complete efforts I have personally seen from Royo. I know that all our Royo collectors and fans will not be disappointed this weekend. The majority of these works are HUGE, and the Blancos theme is clearly evident. We also have several other Royo originals from previous collections and a few really unique works as well. This is sure to be a one-of-a-kind experience that no other gallery in the world could even try to duplicate.

Friday, July 16, 2010


July 31th 2010
Please join us as we unveil the new collection “Blancos” from the artist Royo.

Royo - Blancos
July 31, 2010 (Sat.)

On July 31, 2010, Brilliance In Color Gallery will open "Blancos" (Whites), an exhibition of paintings by contemporary Spanish figurative painter, Royo. This exhibition comprises 35 new oil paintings on canvas together with a selection of drawings, bronze sculptures and serigraphs. Royo has passionately and wholeheartedly dedicated the last 30 years of his career to the same subject matter: the female form. He is inspired by many historical periods from the Old Masters, such as Velazquez and Goya, to the 19th-century Impressionists, such as Sorolla. This new collection of paintings combines formal elements with a subtlety of the contemporary master’s eye. In this collection of Royo's paintings, subjects are depicted by a vast range of different whites, applied with a broken-color technique used to create a dramatic light across the painting. The “whites are composed of a thousand whites”, as Royo notes.

Thomas Arvid Personal Appearance
August 27 - August 28, 2010 (Fri. & Sat.)

Thomas Arvid has taken the art world by storm, with his larger than life, visually seductive, photorealistic paintings of wine, corks, bottles, bottle openers and stem ware. Arvid has achieved incredible success and national acclaim with his still life compositions of wine and the rituals that surround it. He has a talent for portraying light and color, uniting an eye for photo-realism with a genuine talent for abstract composition.

Arvid aficionados instinctively know why they are attracted to his unique style of photo realism and its larger-than-life composition. A quiet drama and pure elegance radiate from the canvas and speaks volumes about the wine. Arvid’s ability to portray texture, light, and mood are only exceeded by his innate understanding of what people love in their homes.
