It’s a Norman Rockwell Kind of Holiday

 In Artists & Special Collections, Norman Rockwell

It’s that time of year again when fluffy white flakes and yuletide carols fill the sights and sounds of suburban Michigan. And just down the street from Park West Gallery’s Southfield location lies the historic little town of Franklin, twinkling with holiday spirit.

Like it was yanked from a Christmas snow globe, downtown Franklin lights up with cheer, perfect for antiquing or site-seeing, looking for gifts or stopping for tea. Visitors to the town will definitely feel like they’re in a Norman Rockwell painting, nostalgic for the era of “The Saturday Evening Post.”

Painting what he knew, Rockwell studied his friends and neighbors for more than fifty years for his famous magazine covers. With an ongoing theme of childlike naivety, gentle teasing, and family values, more than 300 covers were painted throughout his career.

In the mood to experience even more holiday merriment? Works by Norman Rockwell are currently on display at Park West Gallery in Southfield – just minutes from charming downtown Franklin.

And don’t forget: the Park West Gallery Holiday Sale doesn’t end until December 26, so if there’s still someone special on your Holiday to-do list, gift them something they’re guaranteed not to have!
Through association with the Norman Rockwell Licensing Company (the estate of the artist) and Curtis Publishing (owner of the copyrights of The Saturday Evening Post artwork), Park West Gallery has been able in recent years to bring new and exceptional collecting opportunities for Norman Rockwell artworks to enthusiastic collectors.
