Thank you all that came to the LL&D opening on February 4th. We hope that everyone was able to walk away with something they loved, and had just as much fun as we all did! A lot of new faces walked through our door that evening and it was great to chat with some people starting their own fine art collection that night.

Again and again the subject of price vs. value is brought up when it comes to purchasing art…and it’s all personal! Many art collectors put a higher value on being able to purchase a painting over going out to nice restaurants. Others prefer to add personality to their home with art instead of going on a trip.

A perfect example of purchasing a piece of art on a budget can be seen in the image to the right. Alix bought her first piece of original artwork at LL&D IX instead of getting her nails done, knowing she could frame it later. We salute you, fellow art lover!  And congrats on your first piece of fine art work!

There is still time to take home your own piece – for you or a loved one! Our online gallery is up to date, noting what art has been sold and those that are still available. Feel free to stop in or contact us to get your holiday treats! 

Not in the area? Feel free to contact us via email ( or phone (603-225-2515)! We are more than happy to ship your new piece of original artwork!
