latest news

Unfortunately,  we are experiencing an unplanned closure.  This closure is non-covid related.  Our owner/manager had a terrible mishap last weekend and broke his ankle.  Thankfully surgery will not be needed, but Bret will need to be off his feet for the next week or so.  Since we have lost our workforce over the last 2 years,  we absolutely have no trained people to run the shop.  So we are closing till Tuesday 5/17, to allow Bret a little time to get somewhat healed so he can better serve you, once we reopen.  We ask for your patience during this time.  Thanks.  

Open House/Art Show..... Saturday, 6/4 @ 5-9 pm

After quite a gap in our event calendar,  we are scheduling an Open house/Art show/Retirement party.  
We will be highlighting some of the new work of Parker Konyak,  some work from Bret Menasco and also possibly some new artists.  Cmon in and check out the gallery,  the artwork on display and also celebrate the retirement of two of our owners,  Brian and Liz Menasco.  We look forward to seeing you there.  

Charity Paint and Sip was awesome.

With a turnout of 25 painters our Charity paint and sip was a rousing success.  Fun was had by all,  and our charity received funds that they desperately needed.  Thank you so much to all attendees.  

Charity paint and sip on the schedule for 10/2....keep your eyes open for details.  

Art show rousing success!!!

Our first art show in over a year turned out to be a great success. After waiting almost 16-17 months,  we were finally able to hold one of our art shows.   We had over 100 people show up to see new art from Parker Konyak,  the photography of Brian Menasco and Ted Shaffer.  There was quite a bit of discussion,  evaluation, food, drink and some buying.  I don't think we had held an art show where all of our artists made at least one sale.  This show all of our artists made at least one sale.  We consider that an awesome success.

Art Show in the planning stages......

The news coming out of Sacramento is finally positive.  It looks like sports venues, theaters, etc...starting April 1st will be allowing spectators, on a limited basis.    Because the pandemic seems to be hopefully winding down we have started planning on an Art Show and a paint and sip for April/May.  Obviously we will be limiting the amount of people in the gallery for these events, and also all will have to practice social distancing and wear a mask.  We very well could end up taking reservations for the time slots people can come into the gallery.    We're not sure what an Art show will look like in these circumstances but we want to give it a shot.  

Art Show will highlighting the new artwork by Parker Konyak and also introduce our new line of limited edition prints.  

Introducing ......our new line of Limited Edition reproduction giclee's of original artwork.  Each piece will be limited to a 30 print edition.  When the 30 prints have been completed we will no longer print that particular print.  Each piece printed will be numbered, to show you where your print sits in the edition print wise.  Each piece will be printed on an archival matte finish paper which is acid free with an ultra smooth white surface.  Each will be printed in either 18"x24" or 20"x20",  although Elvis will be printed at 16"x28.5" and Aladdin Sane will be printed at 18"x28.5".

Thank you so much for your support of Art Images Gallery.  

As you are aware,  2020 was not a good year.  Many small businesses have gone out of business or are barely hanging on.   Like all businesses we were forced to close from 3/19 to 5/9 to help "flatten the curve".  But through all of the negativity of this pandemic we are still here and going strong as ever.  While many businesses struggle along with Art Images,  we remain positive with the knowledge that our customers will go out of their way to support us.  There have been many struggles thru this year.  Our biggest challenge was many of our suppliers changed their distribution models causing delays for many of the moldings we use for our customers frames. This in turn caused some of our ETA's for completed frame projects to be extended.  We thank you so much for your understanding.   We hope that our suppliers lack of stock, and shipping issues will be rectified soon and we can get back to business as usual.  

We are looking forward to serving you in 2021 and hopefully this pandemic will come to a conclusion soon.   Until then we will do all we can go make your picture framing experience a positive one.
