Gallery of Artists

Throughout the years we have taken many photos of artists that we have met in our shop and in our travels. Sorry to say a few of these artists have passed away but many are still with us and going strong. To those who recognize many of these artists in their early days we hope you will find this collection as memorable as we do.
