The place looks the same for 21 years, needs updating as an art experience. In checking the art, artist and pricing it seems that the sale prices are manufactured to produce foot traffic. Although there are some long seen things priced below what they publish as "publisher's recommended value" it turns out they are hard to move older images. It is hard to tell after following the business plan for a few years if the selling of art as wall furniture is paraded as a fine art venue. If buying to decorate, there are less expensive venues. If buying art for the pleasure of owning true fine are then a 2 star rating stands. But at the least they should do something about the aged gallery. And for the love of owning art, most of their inventory can be purchased on eBay for a much more enjoyable price. And when you have your own piece framed it will be in good condition and not a scratch and dent sale. The celebrity artist are ok at best. They are typically B or C personalities that rate even less with fine art critics. Their work can be judged appropriately as the price that their autograph would realize in that market. Check out the pricing and you will find that the artwork is no more valuable on the market than the signatures of the level B or C personalities. Good for the gallery however, celebrities bring in new prospects for the other work the gallery is selling at the scratch and dent sales artificially priced.
