COME OUT TO SHOW YOUR SUPPORT & BRIGHTEN YOUR WALLS WITH A SPLASH OF COLOUR!
is a local business promoting the work of non-exclusive, established and independent artists from Calgary and the surrounding area. Since it is an online gallery, a large portion of the proceeds of sales go directly to the artist. The idea is to entice the general public to not shy away from owning original art by making it more affordable, yet at the same time supporting our local economy. The art is brought to your location since it is a local business and you may have a designer and art consultant help you choose the art.
