If you’ve never had cancer nor know anyone who has or had it, consider yourself lucky.  Also, consider yourself to be part of a very small minority.  Statistics tell us less than 10% of the population falls into this category. This is certainly true at The Art Shop.  I just lost my spunky 88-year-old mother to this dreaded disease in ...

Any plans for Valentine’s Day? Hope your celebration is better than this woman’s - she & her husband go to the card store every Valentine’s Day, pick out cards, read them to each other and then put them back on the shelf. (Yes, cards are pricey, but come on!) And I hope your spouse is more romantic than this woman’s - her husband (now ...

I mentioned in an earlier blog that Lenny and I are in the process of downsizing. In the last blog, I wrote about getting the house ready to put on the market. Five and ½ months later, our house has sold. Here’s a free tip: Your house sells much more quickly when you give it away. Keeping the house clean and in show condition for that length of ...

What I made didn’t even cover the cost of the glass. I’d have been better off donating them to GoodWill or Habitat and getting a tax deduction. (Check the fine print on your contract. ...

Yes, but now Andy will be The Art Shop’s new Owner and President. We are extremely happy to turn over the reigns to Andy and thrilled our 116-year-old art and framing gallery will continue even though the Dolin ...

We’re just cleaning up from our Garmash/Danish show and now we’re getting ready for our Fifth Annual Holiday Open House (Thursday, December 6 from 7-9pm).  Yikes! It’s a quick turnaround! Before the show, we filled our walls with gorgeous Garmashes and Danishes for their show while the rest of our artists cooled their heels ...

... itself rather than reintroducing it in the matting. Otherwise, you run the risk of having the matting call too much attention to itself instead of allowing your artwork to be the focal point, as we discussed above. Don’t skimp on the mat width. To me, a skinny mat looks like you are squeezing your artwork into a frame you already had and are trying ...

If you’ve read our blogs, you know that Lenny and I recently sold our large home and have moved to a smaller one. Part of the whole buying-selling ordeal, I mean opportunity, was the use of Listingbook.com, a very handy web site for the real estate industry.

“One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish…” “I do not like that Sam-I-am!” “Hop. Pop. Hop on Pop.” Unless you grew up under a rock, you know I’m quoting Dr. Seuss.  I cannot hear those words without getting nostalgic.  Lenny and I could probably recite most of his books by heart twenty-five years or so after we read them to our two children.  ...
