Lake Tahoe is a bustling region where locals get to rub shoulders with tourists looking for some much-needed R&R and art collectors looking to enjoy an intimate experience with art. At the Marcus Ashley Gallery, you can be sure to receive insightful artist information and a wealth of knowledge on the collections. The gallery’s exhibits cover influences from modern and impressionism to abstract and magic realism. Peruse through the Frogman art, a selection of iconic and newly released sculptures of nature imitating art.
Tim “Frogman” Cotterill discovered his true calling after moving to California in 1990. The Leicester-born sculptor has a unique way of presenting his animal-themed sculptures. There is a likeness to the real thing and calming energy that his pieces embody, making them a delight to view. In Stakeout, a lovely pinkish purple frog peeks over a fallen leaf, observing his territory. His watchful eyes scan the edge of a pond, looking for unsuspecting insects to snag or intruders his clans need to be aware of.
Stakeout will catch the eye and hook the heart whether you place it in a decorative tray, on a windowsill, or beside a cluster of indoor plants.
