Fancy Schmancy Gallery is open all day, every day. No appointments necessary. No need to find parking. Whether you live in a huge city or a tiny town you can “wander” through Fancy Schmancy whenever you like.

Every two months there will be a new show, filled with original artwork that was created specifically for that show, and available nowhere else… fancy, right?

I “opened” this gallery in hopes of making unique, original art accessible to everyone everywhere. (Also, I just wanted an excuse to give assignments to my favorite artists to see what they’d make). I also work with artists and collectors all over the world, so if there is work that you’re looking for that you can’t find, I’d be happy to help.

ps. Be sure to check out the Gift Shop too … it will be updated often and filled with prints and other artsy items.
