Get Ready to Crawl!
Warm, relaxing, eclectic, deliciously wonderful are words to describe Allison Sprock Fine Art! As a matter of fact, it was the 'Nude Back' painting by Russian Artist Marc Chatov at Allison Sprock Fine Art that inspired Lynn to create the SIP & SAVOUR Myers Park Gallery Crawl. Nestled in a quaint home on Queens Road you will feel a 'southern charm' welcome as soon as you walk through the door. As you move from room to room you will enjoy extraordinary original art from, past and present, Russian, French and American Artists. Some of the amazing artists featured in the gallery are very famous and some are emerging artists from all over the world. Owner Allison Sprock, Gallery Director Thompson Allred and the entire staff at Allison Sprock Fine Art are proud to be the kick off hosts for SIP & SAVOUR.
