Art Giveaway: American


In February we honor and celebrate our American Presidents, most notably President Washington and President Lincoln. These birthdays and the holiday of President’s Day often remind us and leave us feeling thankful to be Americans. If you didn’t know already, Gallery Direct is located in the capital of Texas. And if you know Texans we are proud of our state, but we are also proud to be American. Did you also know that Gallery Direct is pretty much one of the coolest American art companies around?


Are you picking up on my “American” theme in this blog post? There are a lot of American things I love. One of my favorite American food is the Hot Dog. The idea of a hot dog on a bun is ascribed to the wife of a German named Antonoine Feuchtwanger, who sold hot dogs on the streets of St. Louis, Missouri, United States, in 1880. One of my favorite American or national pastime is seeing a major league baseball game. Go Red Sox! And when I think of a cool, American toy I think of Radio Flyer. Both my kids had a Radio Flyer Tricycle as their 1st bike. And they still have a Radio Flyer wagon. The company was founded in 1917 and is based in Chicago, Illinois. And the photo above is of a young girl with a Radio Flyer wagon circa 1955.


So who wants to win this gorgeous fine art piece, Radio Flyer I by one of our exclusive artists, Justin Garcia? I bet you do! It’s a beautiful canvas giclĂ©e (18×24″) with a 1 1/4″ natural dark brown floater frame, a $289 value. Here’s how you can enter to win:

  1. My favorite thing All-American? Of course the Fourth of July! A cookout on the beach with hot dogs and hamburgers with all the fixings, building sand castles, throwing the football around, and then fireworks over the ocean. What is more American than that?

  2. John F. Kennedy. & my favorite American thing to do is play football, road trip through texas, eat potato salad, and during the summer go to the river and lake! :)
