Testimonials From Happy Prairiebrooke Customers
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 galleries. 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…
“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” .
“A corporate client from many years ago was starting up her own company and did not yet have a budget for artwork for her offices. After taking on a big client, she decided to put back a percentage of that client income specifically to buy one piece of art. She made a habit of visiting Prairiebrooke many times after that to continue her tradition. Once the office was finished, she moved on to buying art in their home… a collector was born ”
“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.
