One of the questions we get asked very often is, "How do you select the art you hang in your gallery?" Other artists who would like us to hang theirs most often ask this. Generally speaking, to hang on our walls or to be featured on our website, the artist needs to be a known entity people are searching for over the Internet.  ...

It’s always a little stressful to have an event.  You worry – Will we hang the gallery in time? Are people going to show up?  Will anyone buy anything? Is everyone having a good time?  Do we have enough food? If there’s a charity involved, will we raise enough money? Will I eat too much? No – wait…that’s not related to an event.  ...

You might find this to be a strange blog topic from a fine art gallery in the business of selling art, but if we had a nickel for each time we’re asked this very question… Rarely a week goes by without someone calling us or bringing us a piece of art they want to sell. Either they have downsized and their art no longer fits (I can relate), they ...

We’re often asked how we select the art that hangs in our gallery.  The simple answer is we select what we think will sell.  How do we know that?  Experience. That’s not to say we haven’t made a few boo-boos over the years.  (There was that piece with the monkey sitting on a piano that stuck around for a few years, but that ...

That’s what Gallery Director Andy McAfee always says when he’s faced with an art hanging challenge.  Trust me, if he can bend a straight piece of art in its frame on to a curved wall (which he did several years ago), he can handle about anything.  I thought you might like to see Andy & Chris in action on a very challenging hanging ...

It can be annoying when a light bulb goes out in your home and you have to replace it - especially when it is out of reach and you need a ladder to change it.  Imagine owning an art gallery with nearly 200 light bulbs each going out at a different time and each requiring a ladder to reach. It’s a never-ending task to which Andy or Chris will ...

While Lenny and I own a spacious 5500 square foot gallery, MY office is anything but.  My cubicle is slightly less than 5ft x 5 ft.   (I measured it.)  Add in a desk, a chair, a computer, a purse, a lunch bag, a coat, files, papers and two dogs who sit at my feet and it makes for a very crowded workspace. (Before we remodeled the ...

This Sunday will be Andy’s 15 year anniversary at The Art Shop! When Gallery Director Andy McAfee joined The Art Shop on July 1, 1997, his goal was to help make The Art Shop an award-winning internationally known art and framing gallery.

Yes, but now Andy will be The Art Shop’s new Owner and President.
