Hans Peterson Art shares the news Hans placed 1st in the York County Juried art show.

Hans, and Barbara Peterson, celebrate Wired No. 4 was awarded 1st place in the Arts Council of York County 33rd Juried Competition

Greetings to all of you who expressed an interest in Hans’ art during our many art shows.   We hope that everyone enjoyed a happy and healthy summer.  I have exciting news to share with you. Last week Hans’ painting Wired No. 4 was awarded 1st place in the Arts Council of York County 33rd Juried Competition, which was open to artists everywhere 18 or older.  Suffice it to say Hans’ art continues to belie his age.  He was among the few artists who had multiple pieces in the final show.  It was a great night for both of us, and for the record, the color coordination of our outfits to Wired No.4 was not intentional!

Hans is preparing for a monumental solo show in October at the Jennifer Balcos Gallery in Atlanta.  This is the first time upwards of twenty of Hans’ largest paintings will be showcased in a single space.  The dominant theme is the women of Hans’ surreal imagination selected from multiple collections of his work.

While paintings will always be the core business of Hans Petersen Art, we are entering the world of art accessories with the Hygge Collection of high-quality, fashion tote bags featuring Hans’ bodacious original art. Each is custom printed to order with all the essentials of a great tote bag:

·       Lightweight

·       Fully lined

·       Multiple pockets; one zippered and two slide-in

·       Magnetic closure to secure contents

The response at soft launch events earlier this month was overwhelming enthusiasm for the collection, with many being ordered for personal use and gifts.

Visit the shop page at www.hanspetersenart.com to see the entire collection and maybe get a jump on your holiday shopping.  This is a niche business and online sales are exclusively through the website.  We’d love to hear what you think of the Hygge Collectionand ask you to consider sharing it with others who will appreciate Hans’ brand of abstract art.  

Warm regards,

Join us as we celebrate Elliott Landy's "Woodstock: An Aquarian Photo Exposition. This experiential photo display brings us to Woodstock, NY in 1969, where Landy took intimate portraits of Bob Dylan and the Band. Landy was one of the two official photographers of the Woodstock Festival. Early in 1969 Michael Lang rode up to his house in Woodstock and asked if he'd be interested in photographing a festival he was putting on. What resulted are classic images from the most historic music festival of the 20th century, WOODSTOCK.

Messy Beck is a painter, illustrator, and muralist. Inspiration for her work began with her fascination with the complex and dynamic nature of women. Her oeuvre has since evolved into a series of narratives that explore themes of identity, mental health, and human connection. The contrast between her inviting color palettes and uniquely contorted figures yield paintings that are constantly navigating a fine line between celebratory and disturbing. She currently lives in Montara, CA with her dog Maude.
Johanna St. Clair lives and works in San Francisco. Along with her husband, John McCambridge, she co-founded ​Mollusk Surf Shop,​ which has developed into a cultural institution that integrates surfing, art, craft, music, and film.​ Mollusk has brick and mortar stores in San Francisco’s Outer Sunset Neighborhood, Venice Beach, and Silver Lake, and a clothing line which is widely distributed. A few years after starting the business, Johanna returned to making art. ​First with drawings from observation on small, blank cards (she keeps a pocket-studio with her at all times), then with her larger-scale ink and brush paintings on paper, and recently with paintings in oil, Johanna's work has grown more direct, fluid, and urgent.​ Her work has been exhibited in New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Tokyo, and at the Tucson Desert Art Museum.
Amber Jean Young (b. 1984) is an interdisciplinary artist residing in Berkeley California. Young’s work explores ideas about place, love, grief, and resilience across mediums, creating vibrant patterns and plant imagery in her compositions. She has exhibited nationally including Bryant Street Gallery in Palo Alto, Hashimoto Contemporary and Marrow Gallery in San Francisco, Berkeley Art Center in Berkeley, Monte Vista Projects and Subliminal Projects in Los Angeles, the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs. She is a 2012 Djerassi Resident Artist Program fellow. Her work has been published in the San Francisco Chronicle, Palo Alto Weekly and in catalogs including The MediaMath Collection: Selected Acquisitions 2012 - 2016, A Celebration of 50 Years of Women Artists At Kenyon College, MusiCares 2010 catalog. Her art has been used on the covers and inside jackets of multiple Neil Young and Pegi Young albums.
