Matching collectors with inspirational artwork, so each space can tell a story.View Available Art
Sparks Gallery showcases accessible, affordable, and purposeful contemporary art and jewelry that is locally made. All artworks are original works that range from budget friendly to investment pieces, with prices listed in our shop. With a focus on surreal and impressionistic artwork, the gallery curates towards emotive works with strong narratives, in themes ranging from portraiture and figurative to landscape and conceptual. We love to match clients with artwork that speaks to their hearts.
If you are looking for a particular size, color, or theme of artwork, we are also happy to source pieces for you, or the artists may create a custom piece just for you.
Early catalog access to exhibition catalogs is available when you subscribe to our newsletter at the bottom of this page. We look forward to welcoming you to the gallery at your next visit.
Parking is most available at the "Park it on Market" lot between 6&7th on Market Street, or "6th&K Parkade" at 6th & K streets. We also recommend booking ahead using SpotHero.com.
