Artworks Studio features decorative, functional art, pottery & sculpture, hand-blown glass, jewelry, and fine art commissions of landscapes, seascapes, portraits and wildlife studies. Run by husband-and-wife team, Rory and Lisa Gage, who have been creating art for over 30 years, the gallery is open 7 days a week from noon – 4 pm.
Rory Gage has been painting for more than 30 years, starting in his early 20s with oils and then arriving at his medium of choice to-date, acrylics. Lisa has been a multi-media artist for nearly as long, working in ceramics, glass-blowing, sculpture, and creating unique glass jewelry.
Artwork Studio was formed in 1990 when Lisa and Rory were married. They met in the San Bernardino mountains in Crestline, California. At the time Lisa was a drywall contractor and Rory worked in a hospital as a cardio vascular tech. While Lisa was in college and Rory was painting from home they both sold their art on a regular basis. Most of the works that Rory paints is commission work purchased by private collectors. He also participates in plein-air shows and explores subjects matters ranging from land and seascapes to portraits, wildlife and everything in between.
Rory continues to paint on a full time basis and both he and Lisa are involved in a number of shows and conferences throughout the year.
