In 2001, we took the plunge and opened our small business in the fine art industry - and what a journey its been!
Born and raised on a Hereford cattle and Quarter horse ranch in the Texas Hill Country, the farming and ranching lifestyle is who we are.
Fine art also runs deep in our roots, with several relatives who are professional artists.
Along with our old-fashioned ethics and integrity, we want to help inspire, promote, and preserve our western art heritage for future generations to enjoy.
Here at Western Galleries, we strive to provide quality artwork, connecting a network of very talented and dedicated artists, great customer service, with a user-friendly website, and a secure online shopping experience for our clients.
Whether you are a seasoned art connoisseur, or just starting to build your personal art collection, Western Galleries has been dedicated to the fine art industry for over 20+ years - and we continue on!
New originals are directly from artist’s studios. The artist's bio and paperwork is included with purchased artwork. Copies can also be downloaded & printed from the artist's page, and from your account's purchase history - so be sure to create your account & log-in if you haven't already.
We encourage collectors to keep the artist's bio and paperwork with the artwork for provenance. Artwork can last for many generations, and keeping the provenance with the art (many clients tuck the paperwork on the back inside of the frame) is important. The provenance will serve as a guide for the artwork's history and authenticity for future art collectors to understand and admire.
Estate art (previously owned), will be clearly identified in the listing. All known provenance (history, previous ownership, paperwork, Certificate of Authenticity, etc) that we have obtained with the art will be listed and included with your purchase.
We've spearheaded and participate in promoting and supporting art for our community.
We support our Nation's Indigenous Tribes, and want to encourage others to learn more about our Tribal Nations (each reservation is like its own country) and their current conditions. Many reservations need donated items, and listed items with shipping info are on their websites.
Did I mention that we are an advocate for America's Wild Horses? We care about ranchers (we too are ranchers/farmers), and public lands, but Wild Horses are an important living icon of our American History and Western frontier. Partial proceeds from our equine & wild horse print sales are donated to Wild Horse non-profits who are dedicated to keeping safe numbers of wild horses left - in the wild - for future generations to enjoy.
Over the years, we have created pet fundraisers that have raised thousands of dollars for our local pet non-profits such as PAWS (spay/neuter), and SPCA.
When you purchase art here at Western Galleries, you are helping to support our artists, and your support helps us to keep paying it forward!
