The gallery itself is only a small portion of the entire store, with a majority of the space dedicated to high-end furniture, antiques and unusual accessories from all over the world. "By combining all these things with the art gallery, we are taking a 360-degree approach to decorating," says Bree Lehman, gallery administrator.
A recent exhibit celebrated African art, with works by Corey and Aaron Jefferson, along with African antiques and artifacts.
It was a colorful combination of the old and the new, incorporating sculpture, painting and intricate masks for an unbelievable exhibit that showcased the progression of African art with tireless talent.
The gallery is also generous in its endeavors, generating donations for various charities. The African exhibit raised money for an AIDS outreach program. May's exhibit, Three Women with a Cause, benefits breast cancer research.
With M. Willis Interiors, Bolling Gallery offers an adventure for enthusiasts who like lovely things. With so much in one space, it's a rare find full of elusive (and expensive) worldly treasures.
