On The Wall with Renaissance Fine Arts: Classic Comfort

Classic Comfort: The Art of Winter

Winter is the season wherein the holiday bustle is subsequently met with relaxing days of post gift giving glow. A unique sensory experience, Winter conjures up memories of crunching snow, smoldering fireplaces, cinnamon & spice filled libations, and cable knit sweaters. There’s a distinct energy to the season; a harmonious balance of embracing the cold and seeking the comfort of warmth. Bring about a sense of winter while enjoying the cozy indoors via art that reflects the cooler season.

 

 

A mountainous landscape brings a sense of adventure to this subdued and comfy den. The earthy elements of the room parallel the theme of the piece, creating a lovely organic and wintry space.

 

 

The addition of a white hued floral piece is a surprising winterscape in a plush and layered bedroom. The room’s abundant variant grey color scheme compliments the artwork, while the subtle pinks and inviting fabrics provide a haven to offset the cool temperature of the piece.

 

 

The calm presence of a cool hued abstract will add an understated touch of winter to a modern dining room. The pieces allude to the season without being explicit; creating the perfect restful winter setting.

Gallery_3792

At Renaissance Fine Arts, sisters Merritt Miller and Rachel Rubin showcase a smart and diverse collection of art, including artists that range from regional to international. The gallery, started by their mother in the 1980s, has a constantly evolving collection – pieces sell and are replaced on a regular basis.

The sisters pride themselves on their ability to find art that is exceptional, then bring it back to the Baltimore community. “We’re local and that’s what we’re about,” says Miller. “Finding art nationally and internationally and bringing it here.”

Here, Miller shares the story of the gallery and some of her favorite things about the job:
