Ellaville, GA – March 12 through April 9, Ralwins Art Gallery presents the first major solo exhibition of the local artist Lois E. Theiss (1946 – 2019). Lois drew several recognizable iconic buildings most of which she did in pencil on paper. She didn’t consider herself an artist, but rather a copier, and that could have been true if that was all she did. Her drawings were just what got her known in her community and surrounding areas. She was an artist by all means; mastering all mediums from oil and acrylic to crayons. Lois was a classical Georgia artist who was well solicited for commission work. She had an incredible body of objective and stunning paintings, that tell the story of her devotion. “Paintings for the Future” offers an opportunity to experience Lois’ artistic achievements in her hometown art gallery. Curated by Yorka Ralwins, the gallery’s director, with the assistance of Jose Salgado, the gallery’s curator, and organized with the cooperation of her husband and ex-mayor of their hometown, David Theiss, by releasing her original works and revealing the last 45 years of Lois, the artist. Lois wanted for everyone to have one of her pieces and to accomplish that she sold them at real bargain prices; even her commission jobs were super reduced. David wants to honor her wishes by making her prints accessible to everyone during this exhibition by freezing her prices on most prints.

"Tiny Art" exhibit


Public  Reception

"TINY ART" is small artwork in two or three dimensions measuring no larger than 10 by 10 inches, challenging artists to focus their ideas by narrowing down the size and scope of the work. One benefit of a theme like this is that the artworks are affordable and make excellent gifts.

In addition, we have individual exhibit opportunities, we provide useful guidance, Art Fair and valuable advice to those who join us and want to promote and grow their art career.
