Estate Art with a Kansas Connection

     

Do you have more art than wall space? Many people today are choosing to downsize, are relocating or inheriting artwork from their families. 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 demand. We assure our clients of privacy and discretion in the sale of their collections. Our Estate Sales room is dedicated to artists with a Kansas connection.  We handle fine art prints by the Prairie Print Makers and the Associated American Artists and selected works by other well-known Kansas artists – Birger Sandzén, Clayton Staples, William Dickerson, Sue Jean Covacevich, and Lester Raymer.  If your artwork has ties to Kansas, then we would be happy to assist you.

How to Submit Artwork for Consignment

   

We are interested in consigning original Kansas / regional artwork. Please visit our pages on the Prairie Print Makers, the Associated American Artists for examples of works we consign in the Gallery. PLEASE use this link, contact us, to upload images of work, including photos of any history or provenance about the pieces. Additional details such as artist, title, size and medium can be noted in the comments section.  We will contact you to make an appointment to view the work and discuss the consignment agreement.

Custom Picture Framing

     

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 41 years but our combined staff experience far exceeds that.

Cleaning and Restoration

 

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 conservation.
