Pumping Out The Speakers

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in About Us

Good Working Music

Our creative projects vary extremely.  One day, we are hanging a small canvas painting on our wall, the next, we are designing a shadowbox for a treasured artifact.  A constant, however, is that nothing gets our creative juices flowing quite like a good record.  

Music is one of the most profound forms of art, and frankly one of our favorites.  Whether we’re on shuffle, or playing songs an album at a time, you can be sure something sweet is pumping out of our speakers.  

One of the treats about starting each day at the gallery is deciding which music to cue up.  We can create a cool jazzy atmosphere with the low hum of Nat King Cole’s sultry voice, or what feels like an Afrobeat dance party, courtesy of the booming vocals of Fela.

African Artifacts


“The art of Yoruba, Bantu and other African peoples is extraordinarily vigorous and shows a brilliant use of geometric form. ¬†The aesthetic impact of their works has been substantial, … with astonishing variety and expressive power of the art of a continent that contains more distinct peoples and cultures than any other.”

-Thames and Hudson

OUR COLLECTION


“African sculpture was scarcely known outside its own continent until late in the nineteenth century, but during the present century in liberating and refreshing effect on Western art has been immeasurable. African sculpture is highly developed and extremely sophisticated art form with thousands of years of history behind it… .”
-Frank Willett

Spanning over 20 countries and 200 years, our collection offers a hint about the past and begs a conversation on the present.
