RS Hanna Gallery is proud to welcome you to our gallery at 244 W. Main St. in downtown Fredericksburg, Texas.
Gallery Hours: Tuesday through Saturday 10:30 to 5:30.
RS Hanna Gallery welcomes you to join us as we celebrate Octoberfest and Fall this First Friday Art Walk. Join us for a pint of beer, enjoy the many incredible new artworks on display and meet our talented gallery artist, Denise LaRue Mahlke as she demonstrates for us in pastels beginning at 4 P.M.
Denise’s paintings have a quiet thoughtfulness to them and her paintings convey a sense of restfulness and peace that reflect the spiritual connection she feels for the landscape. "My desire is to express through my paintings and drawings, the emotional impact that I feel in my experience of being in nature, rejoicing and delighting in God's creation. My hope is to give the viewer a deeper sense of connectivity to the beauty of nature and the joy that I find in Him."
Denise has gained national recognition for her pastel paintings, which have been featured in numerous publications, including Western Art & Architecture, Southwest Art, Plein Air, and Pastel Journal. She has been twice honored as winner of the First Place award in Landscape with the Art Renewal Center's International Salon. In 2013, she was awarded the Gold Medal for works on paper and Best of Show award at the Phoenix Art Museum's West Select show.
Denise is a Master Signature member of American Women Artists, a Signature member of the Pastel Society of America, and an Out-of-State-Artist member of the California Art Club.
We are proud to represent 70 nationally and internationally recognized artists who specialize in contemporary traditional original paintings and sculpture. Our diverse and ever-changing exhibit celebrates what we love and continually inspires, affects and delights us.
