Where To Go For Fine Art Shopping This Holiday Before It’s Too Late


Are you ready for holiday shopping?  It’s a hard thing to image that the 2016 holiday season is already in full swing.  I’m stating the obvious because before you know it will be gone.  So, I’ve made a list of places north of Clearwater that enable you to view and purchase fine art at the same time! Don’t live in Florida?   Well, I’ve got that covered too.

  1. Gallery Gift Shop 

Last week we introduced our first batch of holiday cards for purchase in our very own online Gallery Gift Shop.  These 5”x7” cards have a blank inside for your own personalized message and come complete with an envelope for gift giving or mailing.  At our shop you will find all of our artwork that is available everywhere for both the starting collector and our avid fans.  If you haven’t checked this store out, don’t wait!

2.  Dunedin

We also have new works on display and available for purchase in our Dunedin location for the holiday shoppers stopping by the Downtown Dunedin Grill for breakfast or lunch. Tell Jacque we sent you.

3. Gateway Gallery & Emporium

Last week we took part in the opening of the Holiday show at the Gateway Gallery & Emporium, Inc. . Four different photographic works are now on display until January at this special juried show in downtown New Port Richey.   We also are displaying several smaller works in the gift shop area.   Stop by and see some great art!

4. Tarpon Springs Culture Center

This past week we also presented our work “Bird in Copper” to the Tarpon Springs Culture Center for inclusion in their annal Holiday Art Show. This show has 9 different categories of art displayed throughout Tarpon Springs historic original city hall. If you’re in the Clearwater and Tarpon Springs area drop by and visit!

Even though we’ve been busy at shows and displays all over the North Tampa area, I’ve found time to get into the studio and work on new pieces.   Coming soon I will add new pieces to our butterfly collection and even a young fawn to our animals collection. So stay tuned and buy art!

Are You Missing Out?

Did you know that today I sent out a pre-release email of our next hit work of art just in time for Christmas?   No?

Well, that’s because our Friends can see our newest works of art, when they are not released to the public yet.

Here is a hint.  –  It presents the primordial dance between sterile whites, subtle grays and powerful blacks. There is no greater duality than that of untainted black against the pure white.  Curious?

Our holiday orders are up 200% over last year, that means that our Friends have the best chance of ordering that perfect gift. Why let them have all the glory?   You can become a Friend also.  It’s easy and we don’t spam or sell your information.

Merry Christmas

Well, we made it to Christmas Day!

It’s a usually hectic and exhausting time for most of us.  So relax, take another sip of spiked egg nog and enjoy the holiday!

His grace the most dignified Archie the Bulldog and the A&A Photographic Arts family wishes everyone a Happy Holiday!

One a different note, Archie wore the antlers  backwards because he wanted it that way.  One doesn’t wisely argue with a 50 lb. bowling ball with teeth.

Merry Christmas!  Buon Natale!

The Good, The Bad and Our Spam

With Christmas quickly approaching everyone has begun getting into his or her last-minute Christmas shopping mode. If you’re like us, me made our list of gifts to buy slightly before Thanksgiving. However, the cold wet weather, Christmas parties, and family functions have dwindled the time to purchase quality gifts disappear quickly this year.  But, there is something we are not going to do about it.

The Good:

The last thing anyone actually wants to deal with is spam. So, A&A Photographic Arts isn’t going to send you any. That’s right, I ‘m not going to flood your mailbox with last-minute spammy messages of how you should consider buying fine art photography for that person on your list that has everything. We also will not send any emails mentioning you can buy quality photographic art that’s been put on sale, or tell you that the last day for overnight shipping for our online order system at Fine Art America is Dec.19th. Nope.

There is a strong reason why we don’t do heavy amounts of spam. This gallery receives close to 60-100 spam messages everyday. While my spam filter manages to collect about 90% of it, I still have to clear it out regularly. What is the result of all that spam? I’m not sure what a Ugg boot is, nor does any part of my body need to be “enhanced”, but I can guarantee you I will never purchase either.

The Bad:

The problem is this puts me in an advertising dilemma. Businesses like our gallery thrive on the ability to show my art to the world for the largest amount of exposure I can get. But, like I mentioned, I have no desire to send spam.   Thus the best solution I’ve come up with to create a post like this.

Our Spam:

So, if you like our solution of not sending spam this holiday season at the sacrifice of a blog post now and then; please  send or mention our gallery to as many people you can think of.  Or better yet, buy that gift we refused to advertise for that someone special.

Christmas Cards Are Coming To Town

We have a new development at the gallery!  I’ve created a new type of catalog to help your holiday art shopping.

With the holidays quickly arriving, it is an excellent time to offer a free look at our new Christmas card selections.   Each of these pictures will easily fit to make a gorgeous one of a kind Christmas card with Blue Dooryour personal message.  Or buy a pack of cards and save even more!  Naturally, all pictures will print without the watermark.

You could buy those same old boring cards at the big retail store, but that’s being predictable and boring.  Support the cause of small businesses and buy your fine art Christmas cards today!
