“For the future, the arts have numerous blessings...the search for expressive liberty and freedom of thought among them ...." Richard Ozanne

 

Established in 2001, Richard Ozanne has an impressive collection of fine art, masterpieces, and modern art. Originally the gallery catered to high-end collectors from around the country; however, over the last five plus years we've branched out - embracing art lovers and artists from across the spectrum. We're as much of a vehicle for exposing new artists and art education as we are a gallery.

With three separate showrooms and an artist's loft, we not only host exhibits and artist showcases, we open the gallery for classes and art history talks. We've been known to even invite artists to use the loft and work. Here, we're all about celebrating art and artistry.
