Where it all began

Del and Barbara started this lovely studio and Gallery a few decades ago and every since that time MANY lives have been touched by the joy of art. The space this dynamic duo created is cherished by many! The Artistic Hand even won an award from the town of Oviedo this year for continuing to be a home and safe creative space.  

To kick off our announcements we are taking a moment to appreciate everything they have done for art, the community of Oviedo, and the people who are lucky enough to have The Artistic Hand Gallery & Studio in their lives.  

A message from Del Seaman, "The dream my wife Barbara and I had, to open an art gallery with art by well-known artists to those beginning their art careers and to create an art school that did not forget its roots. It's purpose, and it's mission to make art classes fun and available to anyone that wanted to bring the joy that creating brings to a person's soul.  We saw art schools lose their way when fame and notoriety became more important than the welfare of the students. We saw and participated in galleries that went from inclusion to exclusion of people's art based solely on an individual's 'fame'. Here at 'The Hand' the art in the gallery and studio grows and grows every day with no end in sight. Now with this Internet site we can reach a larger audience and the 'dream' has come to fruition."

Thank you Del and Barbara you have touched so many people.
