Artist Statement: "I am an optimist. Despite continuing bad news, I still think things keep getting better and better all the time. My optimism translates into my paintings where I create images that give hope a lift - dogs grinning, llamas posing and deer confidently touring their patch of woods. I paint a place somewhere between the Garden of Eden and Pooh Corner.

My art can feed people, and like food, everyone has their favorites. Sometimes my service is translating peoples’s own vision in custom murals or commission paintings. In my own work, I paint animals, landscapes and natural abstracts.

In the “OFF THE TRAIL” exhibition, you will find a surreal, happy and curious place to enjoy all the colors, mix of symbols and various life forms. Painting gardens and critters of species known and unknown as they mingle through variable realignments and harmonious connections is a reflection of how I sense life.

It is my goal that the happy colors and positive energy found in each of the OFF THE TRAIL paintings help convey a similar feeling that the Therapy Animals of San Antonio provide their clients. Even more than art, therapy animals have a magical way about them and are able to connect with people of all ages and feed their souls with warmth and love. Enjoy!” - Artist, Paige Holland

ABOUT THE GRELLER GALLERY, LLC

“The Greller Gallery's mission is to engage the public with art that highlights the beauty of our planet and its
people. We are committed to supporting local and national artists whose work supports
non-profits dedicated to animal and environmental causes.”
– Dr. Andrew and Faryl Greller

CREATING POSITIVE CHANGE:
The goal of The Greller Gallery is to inspire and educate people through art on topics related to animal care, animal safety, animal adoption, therapy/military service animals, environmental safety, water conservation and land preservation.

We take this challenge on with a positive attitude, mixed with high energy and commitment to meaningful change for the animal kingdom and our shared environment. We do this through hosting quarterly art exhibitions, lectures and school workshops. In 2017, we hope to add a documentary series to our service portfolio as well.

MEANINGFUL EXCHANGES:
The Greller Over the past two and half years, we have raised over $30,000 for non-profits that make a difference in our world including Bat Conservation International, The Nature Conservancy, Wayward Whiskers, SNIPSA, Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation, Orangutan Foundation, San Antonio Humane Society -- and more.

WHY AN ART GALLERY INSIDE A VETERINARY HOSPITAL?
The Greller Gallery is located on the second floor at the Veterinary Referral and Emergency Center (VREC) at 503 E. Sonterra Blvd. VREC is a 19,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility that provides specialized care in veterinary ophthalmology, surgery, internal medicine, oncology, critical care, physical rehabilitation, radiology (on-site ultrasound, CT and MRI) and neurology.

We believe that art serves as good medicine within hospital centers because it comforts, elevates the spirit and affirms hope. Dr. Andrew Greller’s practice, South Texas Veterinary Ophthalmology, is located within VREC and right next to the gallery. Dr. Greller and his wife, Faryl, believe art within a health care setting, combined with outstanding medical care, creates an ambiance that encourages healing.
