Danny Day’s “King of the Cobras”
As a tribute to the late Carroll Shelby, Danny Day is adding this newest creation to his auto racing artwork portfolio. Painted with oils on canvas, the classic Shelby Cobra emerges from the billowing smoke behind, in all of its muscle car glory. From behind, the ominous King Cobra rises menacingly, overseeing Carroll Shelby’s master creation.
Danny has created many pieces of artwork depicting the Shelby line of cars, and was honored to have Carroll Shelby collaborate with the projects by signing the limited editions and participating in joint shows. In collaboration with Calvin Charles Gallery, Danny has created this beautiful piece of original art and has authorized a small number of Giclees to be produced from the original. The edition will consist of only 24 Giclees and will be sold as a package with an 8×10 pencil drawing lithograph of one of the Shelby cars, which is also signed by Carroll Shelby. This unique and rare opportunity is exclusively available through the Calvin Charles Gallery.
Danny Day’s “Ferrari Majesty”
“Ferrari Majesty” is depicting Phil Hill winning the prestigious Formula 1 World Championship behind the wheel of a Ferrari 156 “Sharknose”. The stallion behind the racecar is the symbol of the Ferrari Racing Team that has been brought to life by Danny Day. Danny also had the pleasure of working with Phil Hill before Phil’s death in 2008. There are several copies of Danny’s pieces that are signed by Phil Hill.
Lori Cozen-Geller’s “Ferrari Red”, “Lamborghini Yellow” and “Famous Shelby Blue”
Lori is a Modern Contemporary artist whose pieces evoke the strength and elegance of the greatest automotive marks, using factory-made paints in Ferrari Red, Lamborghini Yellow and the famous Shelby Blue. Lori began creating art the night of her father’s passing. She made a square out of wood, representing his strength, and cut a small triangle out of the wood. This represented the piece of her father missing from her heart. She painted it Ferrari Red because of her father’s love of exotic cars and for its symbolism of affection.

Wonderful art comes in all shapes and sizes! See for yourself at On The Edge Gallery’s Collector’s ArtWalk on Thursday, January 15th from 6 PM to 9 PM. On The Edge Gallery showcases a diverse array of artwork perfect for the art collector — oil paintings, pastels, acrylic paintings and monoprints, photography, fiber art, sculpture, jewelry, and much more. The evening’s entertainment includes demonstrating artists, wonderful artwork, stimulating artistic conversation, and delectable refreshments!
“Experience art at its best,” says Jenny Willigrod, On The Edge President. “Whether you collect traditional artwork or art that’s a bit ‘on the edge’, we’ve got that perfect piece for your art collection!”
Featured Artists on tap for the evening are Susan Palmer, Bruce Boyce, and Amy Whitehouse. Painter Susan Palmer will be demonstrating how she creates her vivid and dynamic acrylic masterpieces! Photographer, Bruce Boyce will be bringing a couple of his cameras and discussing his photographic techniques.
Susan Palmer, Acrylic Paintings
The use of bright color in Susan’s abstract paintings will catch your eye first. Upon a closer look, you will experience how her painting makes you feel. Then you may wonder what the painting is really about. “There is usually much more going on than first meets the eye,” says Susan. “And that’s the fun thing about art, after all . . . it’s all in the eye of the beholder!” Susan’s motto is “Art That Makes You Happy”, and she hopes that her art will do that for you!
Bruce Boyce, Photography
“Fine art collectibles must first catch your eye, and then implant a lasting image in your brain so that each time you look at it you are pleased that you acquired it,” states Bruce. Bruce produces his beautiful landscape photographs of the Southwest with the explicit intent of generating those two reactions in his viewers. He does so through a combination of excellence in the standard photographic techniques of subject, lighting and composition, plus the added bonus of superior image quality through his mania for image sharpness, detail and realistic tonal rendition. The results are memorable images that have the impact and realism of the original scenes, each as if viewed through an open window on a clear day. Bruce will have a couple of cameras and his Questar telescope with him at the Collector’s ArtWalk. Bruce will also bring other samples of printed images to share that evening.
Amy Whitehouse, Acrylic Monoprints
“I am passionate about painting,” says Amy. “I paint every day and love to share my artwork with others!” Amy works in many artistic media — oil, acrylic, mixed media, pastel, and watercolor. “I love to experiment by breaking the rules and painting intuitively,” says Amy. At the Collector’s ArtWalk, Amy will be showcasing her new, dynamic collection of acrylic monoprints.
Julie Carpenter-Boardman, Printmaker
Julie is a printmaker and painter living in Phoenix, Arizona with her family including a husband, two children, and nine pets. Julie has a MFA in Printmaking and Drawing, and she has taught printmaking and various other courses at the university level.
