Our clients at Prairiebrooke Galleries range from the first time buyer to the long time collector. Since 1990 we have developed wonderful relationships with the wonderful people who visit our gallery. Every day it is a delight to see how art can impact our customers lives. These are just a few of our favorite Prairiebrooke customer stories…


Visited Prairiebrooke Art Gallery for the first time after trying unsuccessfully on my own to find original artwork for our home. Anna greeted me and quickly was able to assess the style, size, and price range of pieces we wanted for various areas in the home. Anna brought several options to our house to view and after an hour’s time, we were able to select pieces that reflected our style and enhanced our interior space beautifully. In addition to the artwork, Anna has a great eye in selecting the best frame for your piece that not only completes the artwork but compliments your decor. While the artwork was not inexpensive, we consider it an investment to be enjoyed for many, many years! Thank you, Anna!

We were doing a last-minute redo of our basement before our son’s wedding. Megan helped us find the perfect artwork and provided it quickly. Shane was an excellent installer and we are thrilled with the outcome! We will definitely work with them again! Megan has an amazing eye for color and design. She encouraged us to try something new and it works beautifully.

I had an awesome experience at Prairiebrooke. Its an incredible gallery with great selection and service. I purchased several pieces for our new mixed-use development in downtown OP. The staff could not have been more helpful and gracious. Will definitely go back anytime I feel like refreshing our art.

One of our favorite first time collector stories is about a 10 year old named Jackson who saved up his money for 1 year just to buy a original pastel dragonfly by artist Bob Ichter. Jackson would routinely come into the gallery with his mom and visit Ichter’s work – he would sit on the floor and stare at the pieces at great length. With much determination, his mother said that Jackson would tell everyone who asked how he was saving his money to buy a piece of art. Instead of gifts for his birthday and major holidays, he would request money to buy an Ichter dragonfly. When Mike, at Prairiebrooke, met Jackson and learned about his devotion to art, he made arrangements for the boy and Bob Ichter to meet-first though email, and then in person at an Ichter show. Although Jackson had not saved quite enough money to buy the piece arrangements were made to give the piece to Jackson and he could pay to have it framed.
 
I have only shopped, and made purchases in the Prairiebrooke Gallery located on Santa Fe Drive. I have always found the staff helpful and friendly. I have bought 4 different paintings there, and had these pieces framed there, as well. I love the variety of artwork they have. And I like the fact that their inventory is ever-changing. I am proud of the pieces I have purchased there. Beautiful!
 
Great selection of unique and beautiful original and limited edition pieces. We engaged Jill to assist with finding art for numerous blank walls in our new home. We’re thrilled with our selections. Jill was most helpful and patient through the process - we’d highly recommend her services.

I thought the entrance to the gallery was very welcoming. It had a good amount of natural light and the it was kind of working the whole modern warehouse look - which has its appeal. I found Prairiebrooke to be well designed to house art in its open, airy natural setting with an interesting metallic-y silver and bronze floor and recessed lighting. I think the venue actually made some of the art look more appealing to me.

The guy working the room asked me if I needed anything, which I did not. I told him I was just in there to look. He told me to grab some complimentary cookies before heading back to work on framing. PG not only sells the work of artists, but they also specialize in custom framing and design display. I peeked into their workshop where they do the framing and they do some serious work back there; I think I even saw a flicker from a blowtorch. My thinking is, if a gallery spends that much of its space working to make your purchased painting framed so well, it’s a two in one masterpiece. You don’t have to buy a painting at location A and then drag it to location B for framing - it’s just handy.

Prariebrooke Galleries has some of the most friendly and knowledgeable staff. Brooke Moorehead was the woman who helped me learn an amazing amount about the Art Business. I personally love art but I don’t know what is truly “good” art.. Brooke and her staff help me put together my ideas and the end result was 150% more than I ever hoped for...

Prariebrooke Arts has the experience and the knowledge to truly help you solve any art needs or questions.. They are truly a Gallery for the Client. I will continue to recommend this Gallery to all of my Colleagues.

A long-time client of ours has a large family. The couple made a point of including original art in their home, hoping that it would enrich their children’s appreciation of art. This summer, one of the couples daughters was married. She and her fiance wanted to buy a piece of art for her parents as a thank you gift for the wedding and all that they had done. Megan worked with the couple to find just the right piece, and when the couple presented the art to her parents the tears were flowing…. The couple then bought their first piece of art to continue her family’s tradition in their own home.
 
This review is for their framing servicies-these folks have been great. We have spent more money than I care to remember here, but their work, to include some restoration, has been spot on!

I appreciate the variety of artwork at the gallery and they always have some unique pieces, too. The staff is helpful and knowledgable. Also, the gallery can be rented for receptions and events. I have hosted several parties there and the atmosphere adds to the event. They have a kitchen for catering, too.

I have known and worked with Prairiebrooke Arts for many years as a customer, artist, and as a consultant for other art lovers. What a wonderful family and devoted employees at the Galleries.When I go there I know I will be treated well and will get the attention that I need. If I need questions answered they will help. If I have framing questions they will pull samples tirelessly. If looking for a specific piece of artwork for a customer, they will look far and wide, and it will happen. Thank you,Brooke, Mike, and Megan for making my experience at Prairiebrooke a JOY!
