MUSINGS...a blog highlighting the happenings of Muse Gallery

Welcome to our blog! 

Follow us on our journey through the art world as we highlight and discuss our travels, artist spotlights, pop up shows, gallery exhibitions, the artist community we are building in New Mexico-"The Woman, The Rabbit and The Moon", and so much more. 

Muse Gallery is a fine art gallery representing over 40 international mid-career contemporary artists. Muse Gallery was founded in Columbus, Ohio in 1997 by Caren Petersen. Muse Gallery Hilton Head was founded in 2015 in Hilton Head, South Carolina by her daughter, Hali Lookabaugh. Petersen and Lookabaugh travel often between Ohio, South Carolina, and New Mexico- as well as all over the country-working closely together, maintaining joint artists and clients. 

Whether you’re looking for a specific artist or just browsing, you’ll be impressed by the stable of artists represented at Muse Gallery. Representing some of the finest painters and sculptors in the country, these artists work in all different mediums and have a common thread in style or sensibility, yet each with their own distinct voice. Many are privately collected, in major museums and corporate collections, and published/reviewed in notable publications. Owners, Caren Petersen and Hali Lookabaugh, are constantly searching for and showcasing beautiful, thought provoking, and well-crafted fine art. 

"We believe art collecting should be a personal journey. We are passionate about the art we represent, and wish to convey that passion to you in your process of collecting. If we can help with your decision in any way, please let us know. We look forward to meeting you!" -Caren and Hali
