- All of our Artist’s are unique. They are all signed to work exclusively with Gallery Direct. So, your art isn’t being sold anywhere else. You can ONLY get it here. There is a wide variety for you to choose from and it is a far cry from ‘boring’. Every art is exciting and new and you can sometimes be the FIRST person to ever buy an Artist’s piece. That’s pretty darn exciting if you ask me.
- We take the Artist’s painting and scan it using a high technology scanner called the Cruse Scanner. This scanner is among the best. It is the ultimate instrument for digital capture and is also used by the Vatican’s Secret Archives, Vatican City and the Czechoslovakian National Library, Prague.
- Once it is scanned… we are ready to make it polish and shine. The scan is good when first looking at it. But, we want to make sure it’s perfect. We adjust the color to make sure it looks as close to the original as possible. Adjusting anything we see that can make it better. The texture that the Scanner creates makes it feel... and look... like the real thing.
We love it back here… It’s like Christmas every day with all the new art.

The rhythmic repetition of circles and ovals in candy colors suggest masses of flowers waiting to be admired by one and all. This is a fanciful composition that shows off Sean Jacobs' skill with shapes, colors and light.Number 2 on the list is Tall and Skinny by Judy Paul
The title aptly describes the form of the tree that is depicted and repeats itself in the actual dimensions of the tall and skinny canvas. Her trademark use of whimsical images, from birds to polka dots, has never been more captivating or humorous.The 3rd most popular is Late Summer's Expectation I by Sylvia Angeli
Here, Nature has a hard time letting go of the brilliant blues and greens of summer. But the promise of autumn's fiery reds and golden yellows will not be denied.Number 4 is New Years Day by Jon Eric Narum
The brilliant blues and pinks of the sunrise, along with the wide open expanses of the horizon, speak of new beginnings and opportunities.Number 5 is Landscape Abstraction by Sylvia Angeli
The richness of the colors suggests a densely woven tapestry that will make a bold statement in any room of your home or office.Coming soon, will be more interesting statistics from from analyzing our web stats. Hope this helps you gives your more ideas on selecting artwork. -Robin

I bought Van Gogh's 'Starry Night' on the aluminum background. My house is decorated in a contemporary style, but I've always loved this painting. So, I chose the aluminum background because it was clean lined and stylish, but does in no way insult the painting itself. It actually is a very nice clash between two styles that works very well. It's absolutely gorgeous. I have and would recommend this style and company to anyone. The quality is great.We enjoyed reading this one: an art lover using Gallery Direct to its full potential. She created something unique, taking an old master, perhaps Van Gogh’s most famous, which we have impeccably curated and optimized, and she customized it on aluminum to suit the needs of her home’s interior. There are features only Gallery Direct offers to art lovers. In business terms, you’d call these “key differentiators” or the value you offer your customers based on how you differ from your competitors. Most of the images we sell are exclusive to Gallery Direct, this is the artwork we sell as limited editions. An artist signs a limited edition agreement [with us] and receives a royalty each time we sell one of their images. In contrast, Van Gogh’s work “Starry Night” is part of the public domain; therefore represents an image that many sources around the world and online sell. But if you want this recreated on aluminum, birchwood, mirror, or acrylic, in addition to traditional framed paper and stretched canvas, we’re the guys to call on. We’re also the guys that won’t break your bank for this level of customization. Our mantra from day one is: “Fine Art For Everyone.” This message is plastered all over our facility and we smile big when we read the end of this review, “I have and will recommend this style and company to anyone. The quality is great.” Thank you! We couldn’t help but notice a new competitor tweaked our mantra to be theirs: “It’s Art For Everyone.” Thanks for the compliment. In eleven years, we’ve had our exclusive images knocked off, we’ve had our messaging/branding copied, and we’ve learned to take it with a grain of salt. In the case of this new competitor, after looking around the site for a while, we couldn’t help but notice their “key differentiator” is exorbitant cost. Might want to re-think that slogan guys.
