The Process
Call us at 510-644-4930 or e-mail us at with your intitial request. We will invite you to the gallery and show you work from different artists who do the kind artwork for which you are looking. We will then arrange a meeting between you and the selected artist and develop a contract for the work and the time frame and we will receive from you a deposit of 50%. You will get a sketch of the proposed project to approve before the final art piece is done.

Rental Gallery

Many of our artists are willing to rent their artwork for home or realestate staging purposes. Come visit our gallery and select pieces for rent. We rent for a 3 month period up to 6 months after which you may apply the rental to the purchase price or return the art.  

Restaurants, commercial building mangers with front lobbies and Stagers appreciate our floral art rental program. We change the arrangements for you once a month so that the work does not become stale and we make seasonal and holiday arrangements. Costs less than purchasing fresh flowers each week and is healthier (no pollens) and less messy (no droppings, bugs or rot).
