BEHIND THE SCENES AT GALLERY 30
Posted by Linda Atiyeh - May 22, 2015
There is an old adage that “if you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life.” At Gallery 30 we try to live by that wise advice. We sincerely love what we do, and we take great pride in our collection of fine art and artisan products. As the owner of Gallery 30, I nurture a strong sense of community, and my team upholds Gallery 30's unofficial mission statement to speak gently, to act fairly and to treat all people with love, dignity and respect.
DIFFERENT STROKESThe Gallery 30 family includes individuals as diverse and charming as the works of art that we sell. We are creative people who love the arts, and our own varied talents and backgrounds include photography, graphic design, music, writing and interior design. Using these unique talents, we all work together to keep Gallery 30 running smoothly 363 days a year! We approach each day with excitement, and we love sharing our passion with each one of our customers!
OUR PHILOSOPHYAbove all, we strive to be authentic. Interactions at Gallery 30 are an outpouring of our genuine enthusiasm for fine art and finely crafted products. We are committed to quality—from the remarkable work of our artisans to our exceptional customer service. We take pride in every step of the process and each of the people who make it happen. We embrace the Main Street Movement and are very proud that the majority of our products are handmade in the USA. We believe in supporting and empowering local artists, and we take time to give back to our community.
