Cathartic Colors from the Sol Sisters

We are pleased to announce our mosaic glass artists, VALERIE WATSON and JANET ALVILLAR
will be our Featured Artists for February!

We will be hosting an Artist Reception for them during February’s 4th Friday Art Walk on the 28th from 5-8pm.

 

Valerie Watson and Janet Alvillar are not only biological sisters, they both possess a real passion for creating stunning glass art! Even their business expresses their unique partnership, “Sol Sisters Designs”. They jokingly say they both need therapy but they have found that working with colorful glass and creating beautiful mosaics is therapeutic and much more fulfilling!

After a lot of talking and soul-searching while on vacation together, Valerie and Janet decided to merge their separate art businesses together. Both single, they decided it would be best for Janet to transfer her day job as a crime scene photographer from Flagstaff to Phoenix where they now reside. They also decided to buy a house together, integrate their studios, supplies and daughters together. Janet has 2 grown daughters and Valerie is the mother of twin girls in their early 20’s.

Daughters of an Air Force father and an Argentine mother, they were exposed to many cultures which influence their work while adding their own “modern twist”. Born into an artistic family, their mother has painted with oils for years, while their brother expresses his creativity through metal work, furniture making and as a drummer. They say, “Their father just sits back and tells us how great we all are!” For an artist, that support is priceless!

About Us

Van Gogh’s Ear Gallery opened its doors on historic Whiskey Row in lovely downtown Prescott, Arizona, in April of 2003.  Presenting over 3400 square feet filled with exceptional contemporary fine art and craft, Van Gogh’s Ear Gallery remains “home” to over 70+ artists – many of whom are from the Prescott area, itself. Offering some of the most unusual and intriguing artwork in the country, Van Gogh’s Ear Gallery is clearly a “must see” for all art lovers visiting the southwest.

The owners of Van Gogh’s Ear are most proud of its history.  After spending almost five months renovating the space themselves to accommodate the needs of a large gallery, the ever-versatile owners then constructed all of their own pedestals and display cases!

A year later, the owners were rewarded for their efforts when Arizona governor, Janet Napolitano, presented the architect and gallery owners with a Main Street Award for historic reconstruction of a commercial space.  

Soon after that, Van Gogh’s Ear won the Niche Award for Retailer of the Year; an award offered in recognition of quality of artwork offered, ingenuity of display, as well as business skill.

Giving back to the community has always been an integral part of who we are.  Over the past few years we have had the privilege to contribute to the following organizations that have brought needed services and quality of life to our community and Arizona: Prevent Child Abuse AZ, Yarnell Restoration Fund, Prescott Film Festival, Courthouse Lighting Fund, Chalk It Up!, West Yavapai Guidance Clinic Foundation, and Prescott Creeks.

But in the end, it is ensuring honest, open and respectful relationships – whether between  owner and artist, manager and employee or business and community – that remains the key to success or failure.  Van Gogh’s Ear Gallery prides itself on its continued dedication to those principles and to its collection of top-notch art.

 

 

“Walking into Van Gogh’s Ear Art Gallery makes me smile. I love the brilliant colors, the intriguing shapes and the unique jewelry. It’s always a pleasing experience to browse the exhibits in such a bright and uplifting environment. The staff are fabulous, friendly and helpful. I always feel welcomed by the owners and staff, making it a “must stop” on the 4th Friday Art Walks. It’s a great place for an art collector as well as a gift shopper or for anyone who enjoys beauty. It’s my favorite gallery in Prescott.”
