PHIL CRAWSHAY GALLERY
Phil Crawshay specializes in exquisitely detailed, large format fine art photography, often referred to as “HD for photography.”
The work represents the decades of Crawshay’s dedicated involvement and experience within the photography and digital media field. Every piece is handcrafted and produced at the gallery by Crawshay.
By utilizing many different processes, he is able to produce images of stunning clarity at very large sizes.
“Image sharpness across the whole image is extremely important to me,” he says. “Rather than just produce an arty composition, I try to capture the entire scene so it can be transported back to one’s own living environment in the most realistic and detailed way possible.”

LUMINARTÉ FINE ART GALLERY
LuminArté Fine Art Gallery brings an international and bicoastal flavor to Dallas’ cultural art scene. The gallery represents and promotes international midcareer artists, whose works are exhibited in private, corporate and museum collections worldwide, while nurturing regional emerging artists.
Araceli Salcedo’s journey through painting has led her to experiment with different media, such as oil, acrylic, water media, collage, encaustic and tempera. She has studied with Beatriz Flores, Catherine Scott, Enrique López and Jerónimo Melo in Mexico. Jeong and Choon Yun have created a unique alchemy of ancient Asian techniques and more modern Western imagery, specifically abstraction. Their “paintings” are made in the traditional method of Hanji, Korean paper-making. Gina Rossi explores the relationship between color harmonies and surface texture, emphasizing construction and deconstruction of forms in space. Her works feature harmonizing and unexpected connections, formalizing the coincidental and emphasizing the conscious process of composition behind seemingly random works.

CHRISTOPHER MARTIN GALLERY
Bold yet meditative, dynamic yet serene, the paintings of Christopher H. Martin harness the passions and intricate subtleties of nature. The success of Martin’s works is due in part to his signature practice of reverse glass painting. Martin’s radical reinterpretation of the art form allows for a freedom of expression unachievable by conventional methods.
In his paintings, Martin uses state-of-the-art techniques in acrylic and canvas media at scales commonly ranging from two to 16 feet wide. Depicting abstraction from observations in nature, Martin refers to his style of painting as organic expressionism.
Notable achievements include a 120-foot painting, Velocity, commissioned in 2012 for the Austin Formula One racetrack, Circuit of the Americas. The work is considered to be the largest painting of its type in the world. Martin’s paintings can be found in private and corporate collections across the United States and in several countries.
Founded 21 years ago in Dallas, Christopher Martin Gallery provides the perfect atmosphere to showcase the breadth of his work.

Critically acclaimed artist Floyd Gordon has a clientele of faithful collectors from coast to coast. He creates vivid, dazzling watercolors and potent acrylics from his studio gallery.
“I’ve always been fascinated by colors,” he says. “The first time I really remember applying my fascination was when I started school and the teacher gave us crayons and a coloring book. I was so fascinated by the colors and the pictures that I colored every page. I didn’t have another coloring book, so I drew pictures to color and took my book to the teacher,” he recalls.
Gordon says in order to paint a picture, he has to first see it in his mind. “I keep adding colors and details until it looks good to me. If it’s not right to me, it won’t be right to anyone else,” he says. “I have never done galleries, and I rarely do commissioned paintings—I paint pictures that I like, and if I do them right, other people will like them, too.”
VICKI P. MAGUIRE
Vicki Maguire’s contemporary oil paintings reflect her love affair with the vast outdoors and appreciation of the light of the moment. Her inspiration is found in the tranquil moments of all the locations in which she has lived. Living on three coasts, Maguire has found it is the color and drama of the sea that is special and speaks to her heart.
After 17 years of dedicated study and working with the best in the field of impressionistic art, Maguire has joyfully expanded to an intuitive style of painting that incorporates nonrepresentational work using large scrapers, cold wax and a faith in the design when approaching the canvas. She also teaches “modern” expressionism in oil, using palette knives and brushes. “My students love this class,” she says.
Her paintings hang in homes and businesses as far away as colonial Granada, Nicaragua.
With a Bachelor of Arts in advertising/layout and a minor in photography, Maguire continues to hone her craft full time with joy. Her work is represented in Charleston, SC; Jacksonville, FL; Philadelphia; and Dallas at Bee Street Studio. Designers welcome.
