Susan Calloway Fine Arts Celebrates 25th Year Anniversary
Twenty-five years is a long time to be in the fine art business and now Susan Calloway Fine Arts has reached that silver year. Susan opened her gallery in 1993 in a small space just up the street from her present location and shortly after moved to her present location. She majored in Modern Languages in college. A course in her sophomore year in art history and a junior year abroad in France awakened her interest in art and she didn't look back. Initially she began by showing antique French prints and gradually became know for her stable of contemporary artists. The gallery also has a carefully curated selection of antique American and European oil paintings and 17th-19th century prints.
Art consulting services are provided for business and residential clients and collaborates with architecture and design trades. The gallery specializes in conservation framing using archival-quality materials. Calloway took courses from former head framer at the National Gallery of Art, Hugh Phibbs, and at the NYU Conservation Institute.
