A photographer's lens is like a porthole of the Nautilus: it can reveal hidden depths that most human eyes never see and is often filled with fleeting glimpses of giant tentacles. Today's Groupon infuses your home or body's décor with the artful power of the still image: for $40, you get $80 worth of art and jewelry at Jeane Vogel Studios in Crestwood. This deal is valid toward gallery merchandise only, not photography sessions or classes.
Located in one of the new art spaces at Crestwood Court, award-winning artist Jeane Vogel's 4,000-square-foot gallery and studio showcases both her traditional and alternative-process photography. Black-and-white and color photographs of haunting, foggy morns and vibrantly hued beaches are displayed alongside dreamlike infrared photographs that capture a spectrum of light invisible to the eye of man, woman, or Sauron. Hand-altered Polaroid paintings (from $45) lend an impressionistic quality to a vintage medium generally employed in snapping covert shots of ghosts, whereas mixed-media paintings (from $245) use soft pastels to extend Polaroid images beyond their confining white borders. For beautiful images that tickle your earlobes as much as your brain lobes, Vogel's Art to Wear jewelry collection displays her Polaroid paintings in miniature as dangle-able glass or porcelain pendants (earrings from $44, necklaces from $25).
An accomplished professional photographer for more than 30 years, Vogel's work has been displayed in galleries as near as Art St. Louis Little Gallery and as far away as Photographer's Direct in London, garnering a Santa's sack of awards and accolades along the way. Her work ranges from $25 to $1,200, so grab today's Groupon and apply its value toward a piece of photo-impressionism from Jeane Vogel Studios that will stun even the staunchest Seurat supporter.
