MountainMade welcomes Paul Lucchesi

posted: 38 month ago by Becky Henderson  |  No Comments ;

MountainMade is very excited to welcome sculptor and painter Paul Lucchesi to the list of amazing artisans juried into our Gallery. Paul is a sculptor and painter who is inspired by Italian Renaissance and Baroque sculpture. He is known all over the world as a fine artist and instructor who loves teaching the art of making sculpture in a fun setting.

Mountain Made currently has 9 of Paul’s oil based paintings including the full serious of “NewYork/NewYork” which Paul painted after the events of 9/11 while he was living in New York.

Paul left the city life and is now a resident of Thomas where he is a very active member of the artisan community and is welcomed at every turn. Paul has been quoted, “Why wouldn’t anyone want to live here. It is beautiful.” Paul already started to share his teaching talents, and those of other artisan friends, with the community by doing his first workshop in his new hometown last summer. I must say it was a beautiful and inspiring site to drive down Front Street, on a beautiful sunny day, and see an art class in full swing down by the river.

We encourage you all to come in the Gallery and see some of this incredibly talented gentleman’s work.

The MountainMade Country Store has been consolidated with the Artisan Gallery in Thomas. Now you’ll have one-stop shopping in Thomas for everything including books, food products, toys, fine art glass and lots more. The Pottery Studio will also be moving to the Gallery location.

The MountainMade staff spent the week boxing, wrapping, loading and unloading hundreds of West Virginia made arts and crafts. We are pleased to report that nothing was broken.
