Tom Foty Art
What fun when an artist comes in to place his art! Tom Foty arrived with all his wonderful art for the next in EXIT Realty Metro's Emerging Art Series - this is the 20th which is so hard to believe! Each time it is so amazing to see what these talented people can do. It makes me so envious and pleased that I can enjoy it each day as it is on display at our office.
Our Broker, Carson is a talented guy in his own right, yet I still wonder what caused this great idea to blossom in his mind to give local artists the opportunity to show their talent at his offices for weeks at a time, plus hosting an opening event and offering them the opportunity to seel their art while here! Regardless of the reason, it is a great idea and much appreciated by the people that enjoy the art and the artists that have had an opportunity to share their talents.
Tom Foty has an amazing talent in many realms of art. He does caricatures for many organizations, has done advertising art for some of the largest companies; and now even computer generated imagery. His talent seems to have no limit with storyboards as many pieces are in pencil and some acrylic and oils. The items he has brought took me back to times of growing up on the ND farm, with barns and a cow plus of course the snow. My EXIT friends noted there were trees and hills so it could not be ND -- oh well!. Tom has a wonderful array of trains and engines as well. They look so real you think you can hear the whistle! Oh and the football and other sports - the detail is amazing. Landscapes that make me wish I had scenes like this to view outside my window!
All in all it is such fun to see what they bring in - The opening networking event is set for July 31st. This is always such a good time. The event is open to the public and of course during the entire showing it is available to view. Come and enjoy, I will.
