Sales of Fine Art. To maintain our clients’ enthusiasm and draw new clients to artists and the gallery, Leigh & Paige will host a regular schedule of exhibits and special events, providing publicity, raising community awareness of the artists, and growing commerce of fine art in the greater Columbus community.
Online Sales. In the digital age, businesses risk being left behind unless they take advantage of the opportunities e-commerce and social media provide to develop interest and increase clientele. Galleries are migrating towards emphasis on having an online presence where they conduct a significant portion of their marketing and sales. All works listed on this page are available for purchase and shipping, making it easier for clients and artists to connect.
Consignment of previously-owned artworks. In addition to Artists, collectors have the opportunity to consign artworks they own and wish to sell with the support of an art dealer. Leigh & Paige will utilize the local network and our online presence to find buyers.
Other services and opportunities. We offer the gallery and its grounds for social events, including a large backyard with privacy fencing, making it the ideal location for social events and special occasions. Additionally, Leigh & Paige will host informative lectures and discussions for art and design, live demonstrations, and community events.
OWNER’S STATEMENT: WHY ART MATTERS
Ask yourself: what exists, created by the hands of a human being? Somewhere along the way humanity lost its divine gift of creating singular masterpieces. You see it in today’s architecture, you hear it in today’s music; we give way to technology, gradually diminishing ourselves in everything around us, implementing layer upon layer between our own creative ability and the world around us. Today form ever follows function, though it did so in the past as well. But today form is without the tangible beauty so common in the past.
Behind us are the eras that gave us astonishing historical structures, priceless works of art that remain priceless and have withstood time, and where theater, classical music performances, and appreciation of fine art were the mainstays of our culture.
What exists today that resembles these timeless creations from before? One could argue very little, with the exception our Fine Arts community and culture. Fine Arts exist due to the time, devotion and patience of the Artists who bring them to life. And there are no layers that separate.
Last summer when I began this journey, what attracted me to the idea of working with Fine Art and the Artists who create them was the beauty, emotion and authenticity found in the works. Nothing created by means other than our hands can compare.
I wish to share the divine gift belonging to the Artists among us. What man creates defines humanity. Fine Art, I believe, is intended to show us humanity in its most desired form. It is a reflection of ourselves. Its makes us memorable rather than forgettable. It leaves behind a timeless legacy, for appreciation by future generations.
I believe we all have the ability to create beautiful things. Artists discover this ability, nurturing it over time to create masterpieces that please our senses and touch our souls.
Leigh & Paige strives to create a unique experience – a lifestyle that aligns art and culture and welcomes the public and communities to enjoy it. Please join us!
