  • Check out the Prudent Picks section for works priced $150 or less
  • Check out the exhibition pages for both current and past exhibitions. Note that some of these works are available by special order only. This is indicated alongside the sale price. Please contact us regarding those items.
  • Most everything is alphabetized by the artists name (first, then last). Artists we work with regularly are listed on the left, but we have work by many other artists not include in that list.

all dimensions are given in inches and all prices are in US Dollars.


Payments are processed via Paypal’s secure online checkout system. You do not need a Paypal account if you are paying by credit card..

Advance payment by check or invoicing for established or institutional customers also available. Click that selection on the payment page.

Order fulfillment

Orders take several days to fill. Orders from the current exhibition catalog may be delayed until the close of the exhibition. We will be in touch to let you know the status of your order.

We work to keep this store up to date. However, books are subject to prior sale. Many of the items listed are unique; most of the rest are limited editions: once the only or last copy is sold, there are no more.


Due to the varied weight and value of inventory, the auto-calculated shipping charges are often inaccurate. With advance credit card payments, if the difference between calculated charge and actual charge exceeds $5 per order, that amount will be refunded. If the customer was overcharged by $5+, that amount will be refunded. Every order is shipped insured for full value.

We ship via USPS, UPS or Fedex, depending on the weight/value of the order. If you have a strong preference please let us know.

You will be notified via email when your order is shipped.


Items can be returned in the same condition received within 3 days of receipt. We require that you notify us before returning any item.
