Michele Grindberg, artist and owner of MiArt, extends her heartfelt
appreciation to her new business partner, BFA painter and craftsman
William Saol, for the outstanding success of the gallery’s new garage
studio space. William will be coordinating classes for a variety of arts
and crafts, and he also takes commissions to restore furniture or even
revamp it with his beautiful paintings. The gallery has also extended
its jewelry offerings that complement the myriad of original artworks,
and even more expansions are coming soon by way of a second floor
and the talents of New York City artist Tyler Steph. MiArt is currently
extending an open call for applications from artists and artisans to fill
the expanded space. MiArt will be open on Mothers Day, Sunday May
14 from 11am to 4pm to help out those last minute shoppers to get
mom that unique and thoughtful gift she deserves.

Gallery owner and artist Ray Heard is referred to as an
innovative and creative leader in the Galveston art scene.
Reggae Palms
is a colorful creation that measures 40”
x 60” and beautifully represents a painting style Heard
refers to as “Liquid Glass.” He mixes each transparent color
singularly, then layers one over another to create an original
painting, and the depth of the colors together resemble
light reflecting off of glass. This unique process that has
never before been seen on the Island is back by popular
demand and it will not last long. Hurry in to Heard Gallery
to experience this truly mesmerizing art form.
