Bodh Salon & Photography Featured Artist – Richard Vande Sompel


When Jake opened the salon there was one wall in particular that he left open. We bought a big clock for the space, but it definitely had room to display something… photos or art. A couple months ago Jake thought of starting a Featured Artist program. Basically, we find art that we really like and see if the artist would be interested in displaying it in the salon. While we don’t aggressively try to sell the art like a gallery would, it has the ability to be viewed by the many clients who come through our doors. Lots of exposure is always a good thing.

Currently we are showcasing the art of local artist Richard Vande Sompel. Richard, who has been drawing and painting his entire life, is completely self taught. Previously an art teacher, he is now retired and working on his “Legends and Icons” collection.

Bodh Salon is currently housing 6 pieces from the collection. They are all acrylic on canvas.


If you are interested in viewing the pieces we have or would like to purchase one, please contact Jake at

We are also open to submissions from other local artists who are interested in this opportunity. Simply contact  Jake at with some information about yourself and images of your work.
