As many people today downsize, relocate or inherit, they frequently find more art than wall space. We assist those individuals in evaluating and divesting their art collections. This has given us the opportunity to handle many highly collectible, museum quality artists, whose works are in great demand. We assure our clients of privacy and discretion in the sale of their collections. Our emphasis is on artists with a Kansas connection such as Clayton Staples, Charles Sanderson, and Wayne Willis and the Prairie Print Makers.
If you would to submit art for consignment please contact us and upload images of work, including photos of any provenance. Additional details such as artist, title, size and medium can be noted in the comments section.
We do fair market value appraisals on Prairie Print Makers and Kansas art. Contact us to upload images and note details of work(s) to be appraised. We will contact you to schedule an appointment to receive work(s) for appraisal.
Picture framing has two important tasks – to take artwork, photos, objects or memories out of the drawer and onto the wall with the best possible presentation, but also to preserve and protect it for years or generations to come. Having the knowledge, tools and materials to provide both creative and archival framing is essential to our customers. We’ve been framing for 39 years but our combined staff experience far exceeds that.
We clean lithographs, block prints and etchings using approved archival methods. Cleaning is an effective way to remove stains, old mat borders, foxing, acid burn from old cardboard backing and to generally brighten collector prints.
We also clean paintings and will do repair work and touch up of sentimental pieces. This is not to be construed as museum quality painting restoration.
We specialize in Kansas and regional artists in all mediums and a wide range of genres. Our gallery has a showroom dedicated to monthly shows that include a Final Friday opening reception.
If you are interested in representation or participating in group shows at our gallery please contact us and upload your Artist Statement or Bio/C.V. and quality images for consideration. An artist website link will also be accepted if above information is posted on the site. Please note any special details and dates in the comments section.
If you are interested in more exposure as a working artist we offer a 10′ x 6′ work area, a 8′ x 9′ floating wall and a North facing window to create art. We provide easel, table and chair. The work you produce will be featured in one of our future Final Friday opening receptions. We have regular pedestrian and street traffic to view an artist at work as well as regular postings on our website and Facebook page. This is a minimum one month residency with a minimum of 6 hours a week during our regular business hours.
To apply, contact us and upload your artist statement for residency with examples of your work. Please add months you are available for residency in the comments section.
