In preparation of this evening’s Gallery Stroll, Kristin Rocke, owner of Glass House, is featuring the work of Ellen Baker and offers these interior design tips: “Art doesn’t have to match the style of a room,” says Rocke. “For example, traditional still lifes juxtaposed with contemporary design adds instant interest.”

Love the look of these frameless still lifes? Take your lead from Rocke. “Floral and fruit studies can sometimes feel stiff. Freeing the paintings from their frames loosens them up and makes them more compelling,” she says.

Pro Tip:
Need a fresh look for hanging unframed art? We love Glass House’s use of  bulldog clips. They’re so unexpected and easy to use.

About the Artist: Ellen Baker’s still lifes are a study in looking to understand the beauty and poetry of the world through art. A Utah native, she received her Master’s degree in Fine Art from the University of Utah and trained for more than eight years under realist painter Kamille Corry.
