I'd love to share my experiences.
Vista, CA (PRWEB) September 28, 2008
When Scott Cadwallader left the pharmaceutical industry after 30 years, he wanted to pursue something he loved. As Cadwallader began to sort out what would become his business, he decided on golf.
In 2004, Cadwallader launched http://www.SilverCrossGalleryOnline.com, a webstore that specializes in golf art, which is exemplified in both photography and painted mediums. Highlighting independent artists like William Grandison, Linda Hartough, Larry Dyke, Donald Ford, Joann Dost and Patrick Drickey. The website also features the golf-inspired sculpture work of Michael Roche. Through these artisans, Silver Cross Gallery has created its own network of exclusive art.
"I got started by contacting the artists directly," explained Cadwallader. "It's a win-win for everyone. These artists get great exposure and I'm able to provide really beautiful art for people who appreciate them."
As the website continues to evolve, Cadwallader has added golf furniture and, more recently, gift certificates (for those hard-to-shop-for individuals). Even as Silver Cross Gallery has developed its own identity as a site for golf art, Cadwallader is adamant about the future direction of his website:
"I'm always looking for other items I could feature, but they're going to be higher end. I'm not looking to expand to posters or novelty, joke-related art. I love featuring quality items and quality paintings."
In addition to offering beautiful paintings, photographs and sculptures, Cadwallader has launched a blog (http://www.TheArtOfGolfBlog.com) in conjunction with Silver Cross Gallery. "Mainly, I'm going to talk about various courses, golf history and golf travel," said Cadwallader of the topics he'll cover in his blog. "I'd love to share my experiences."
Because of such experiences, Scott Cadwallader is able to appreciate the beauty of golf courses and, by extension, golf art itself. At Silver Cross Gallery, you may not find tawdry golf balls with inappropriate sayings, but you will find beautiful prints that will allow you to bring the fairway to your home.
