True art is characterized by an irresistible urge in the creative artist. — Albert Einstein
We first met artist Michael Kessler in the year 2000…well…sort of…
It was not your typical introduction involving a handshake and a greeting. Instead, it was a glimpse followed by lingering looks as his paintings captured our glances. On Valentine’s Day weekend in the year 2000, we dined at Geronimo in Santa Fe, New Mexico. And as we enjoyed what might have been the perfect Valentine’s dinner, we were introduced to the work of a kindred spirit, Michael Kessler.
Our weekender to Santa Fe was not soon forgotten. The memories of delicious food, good company, beautiful weather, and galleries filled with inspiration and creativity have stayed with us all these years. And in early December of 2014, we contacted Michael Kessler with a proposal – to share his creativity with us in our new downtown Scottsdale office. The result? Our gallery-style white walls became home to nineteen pieces of Michael Kessler’s works.
Below are several candid photos taken before, during, and after the installation. We hope you will enjoy the pictures.
