“In Memory of Terry Beals”

Saus3

It is a sad news to hear and announce that one of our resident artist has passed away on August 15. Terry Beals was a good man that had a professional business life.

Terry immediately had the insatiable interest in art when he dabbled with it on occasion after he retired. He was a businessman with business mentality, but after that retirement he discovered that art was an interesting therapeutic direction in life. It is often an illusive business practice. Terry delved himself to see how he would fair in approaching this field seeking if there was any pattern he can use to leverage his new creative outlet. But alas, it has eluded him, that is if there was such a thing as a pattern in the business side of making and selling art.

Terry had mentioned to me in the past that:

“Art shows and reminds us of beauty. It enhances our life experience.”

These words is so genuinely true. Art is a beauty to those who recognizes and seizes it. With these words we say farewell to a good friend and a fellow artist. We will miss you Terry…

The PAOLO MEJIA art gallery and design studio is very excited to announce the re-establishment of our art gallery. We are back after a low-keyed year, and now we have found a new home at a prime and active location of North Beach/Telegraph Hill. After two and a half years of fantastic and dynamic artistic exploratives at our 3rd Street main facility, we say farewell to our first home that brought us creative insights and fundamentals. Our first home was an intimate space where we grew, developed and cultivated our commonality with our artists and community. It shall be missed dearly and remembered.

As we re-establish our gallery at our new space in North Beach/Telegraph Hill, we will be venturing with two other entities that will make the neighborhood more intense and dynamic. Our collaborative venture will focus in the fine arts, design and music. This venture will be a fruitful one and will develop into a bigger phenomenon that will excite and bring interest to everyone.
