A Gallery of
Contemporary Fine Art, Fine Craft and an Art Studio too!
ALL MADE IN THE USA
"Life is a
blank canvas and you need to throw all the paint on it you can."
from Julie Basello-Holt,
owner of Creative Genius
It is with a heavy heart that
I am announcing that Creative Genius Art Gallery and Studio will be closing
it's doors for good effective June 30th, 2013 after 10 years in business.
After the past three years spent working on Creative Genius
and my photography business at the same time,
I have the unique opportunity to focus on True Story Photography full time and
I have decided to take that opportunity. I have enjoyed the ten years that I
have worked on growing Creative Genius and especially the opportunity to meet
so many supportive, terrific people. Although it feels like I am saying good
bye to an old friend, it is time to step away from retail so that I can
actually have a life again. I would like to thank everyone who has been so
incredibly supportive especially my awesome clients, the fantastic artists I
have had the opportunity to get to know, my family, my assistant Reece and
especially my husband, Chris, who has been so incredibly supportive of my
dream in so many ways. Remember that the next time you step into a small
business, you are walking into someone's dream--be kind. I have been honored
to have my dream treated kindly by so many and I look forward to working with
many of you again in the future. Thank you very much!

"Art For Who You Are!"
Art is always a matter of individual taste and preference and it may be
functional or decorative (or both!)
Our goal is to provide our clients with the ability to purchase
interesting and unique art in a fun, contemporary environment. We also fairly represent the artists who create the pieces. We want to achieve the balance
between giving artists a chance to share their work and art patrons a chance to
enjoy unique and original artistic creations. All the
art we host at Creative Genius is unique, hand-crafted and made in the United
States by artists... Many of our pieces are one of a kind and often, cannot
be purchased anywhere else. This
offers our clients a chance to own original works of art that cannot be
found elsewhere. Isn't it much nicer to own a hand-crafted, unique
creation than to purchase a mass-produced item? Start supporting American
culture by asking yourself...When was the last time you purchased a true
