But even if you're not, there's no denying that these three artists are some of the most talented painters working today. Let's take a closer look at their work and see what makes them so special.

Hal Buckner: Represented by Joan McLoughlin

Hal Buckner is a well-known American Postwar and Contemporary artist who was born in 1938. Hal Buckner's work has been shown at several key galleries, museums such as Patchogue Arts Council MoCA LI; this includes numerous auctions where his pieces would sell for less or more than seven hundred dollars depending on the size/medium of artwork offered.

Doug Thielscher: Represented by Joan McLoughlin

Doug Thielscher is a self-taught sculptor who began in 2002. Doug is driven to give life to stone, an impossibly static material, and to portray the eternal and ephemeral emotions that both bind us together and drive us apart. Doug's sculptures are hauntingly beautiful depictions of love, loss, hope, and despair that resonate with viewers long after they have left his studio. Doug Thielscher's work has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions across the United States and Europe, and can be found in private collections around the world.

John Grande: Represented by Joan McLoughlin

John Grande is a New York-based artist who creates sculptures, paintings and murals that are both contemporary in their construction as well as reminiscent of Old Master painters. From glamorous celebrities to street artists' more gritty subjects, John Grande's work boasts diverse subject matter with his own humorously recognizable twist on it all!

These are just three of the many talented artists working today. If you're interested in adding one of their paintings to your collection, then be sure to contact Joan McLoughlin of The McLoughin Gallery who can help you find the perfect piece for your home or office.
