Welcome to The Art Shop
Whether you're a seasoned collector, an aspiring da Vinci, or just a passerby with a sense for all things beautiful, The Art Shop is an enchanting experience for all who visit. Located in Greensboro, NC (since 1899, and Greensboro's second oldest business, thank you very much) and home to a world class art collection, we've been turning window shoppers into happy, long-time clients for over a century.
While we deal in art of all shapes and sizes, we specialize in four areas: original oil paintings, hand-embellished and artist embellished works on canvas, bronze sculptures and hand-blown glass. The Art Shop features works from some of the world's most prestigious and sought-after artists, and we like to think we've turned our client service into an art as well.
We had a request from one of our favorite clients to write a blog about regular maintenance of artwork. He was concerned after seeing dust on their frames and canvases and wanted to clean them without doing anything that might cause damage.
I remembered writing a blog once called “The Care & Feeding of Your Artwork,” and when I went back to look for it, I found I had written it nearly four years ago! It focused mainly on long-term care – varnishing, rematting, etc. It didn’t deal with the every day care of canvases and art framed with glass.
