Spirit of 76 

Spirit of 76
by David Grant


The Spirit of '76 is our way of saying we still embrace the core principles on which this great nation was founded and that the true American spirit is unshakeable. This remarkable canvas edition has to be touched to realize that it is not the 30 to 60 pounds of real heartland barn door. The image continues around all four edges of the canvas to complete its authentic feel. Finally, each Gicl´┐Że comes with a set of pull rings to complete the presentation.

Available in two sizes,  this open edition canvas allows you to make a unique and definitive statement about your patriotic passion. Make a statement in your home or office with The Spirit of '76 and let freedom ring!

A Tribute to Firefighters
September 11,  4:00 - 6:00 p.m.

Fireman - Hutchinson
Fireman by Tom Hutchinson



American Visions Art Gallery commemorates the tenth anniversary of  

heroism and loss, with an opportunity on September 11 to meet two

firefighters who are artists - painter Tom Hutchinson and photographer

Paul Ferrin. Both are coming to the gallery's Granite Bay location,

at the Quarry Ponds Plaza, 5540 Douglas Blvd's.



Tom Hutchinson  

 Tom Hutchinson, whose work has been on display at the gallery, and who has been featured in the Sacramento BEE, is an oil painter whose work catches the dangers of firefighting as well as commemorating the tragedy and the bravery of 9/11. Several of his paintings feature Dusty the rescue dog trained by Sacramento Metro Fire Department who spent days working at ground zero, became everyone's mascot, and who rang the bell at the New York Stock Exchange when it reopened. Tom will be available to sign and dedicate his art as well as to talk about his work as a firefighter and paramedic with Metro Fire. "In my art I try to capture the beauty and grace of a moment in the action of doing something with inspiration and passion," he told the BEE.   



 Hutchinson Never Forget


Never Forget


The newest painting by Tom Hutchinson reflects the symbol of our freedom, the Statue of Liberty with the twin towers reflected from a pilots helmet.

The Painting is stunning and this photograph cannot do it justice.  

as it was quickly taken so that we could share it with you now.

The painting is now on display in our Granite Bay gallery
