Hawaii 5-0 (review stars)

October 28th, 2014 by

One of the greatest pleasures in the our business is helping folks with transporting important family treasures. Here’s a review sent to us by a gentleman from Honolulu who we helped get an oversized  heirloom painting from Pittsburgh to Hawaii

Aloha Mike,

You read my mind, I was going to email you this morning when I woke up.

The painting did arrive in perfect condition. I normally don’t have issues with long distance shipping, however this one was a major concern since it was a family heirloom being passed on to me.

When I began researching online, your company was the first that I saw…and when I compared your services with others, there was no comparison. From my first correspondence and all the way through the process and right up to delivery, your customer care was exemplary. My family even reported to me how impressed they were with the two young men were who picked up the painting…dressed well and held a pleasant conversation with them. You made me feel completely comfortable with the fact that this painting, which reflected my childhood and family history, was in very capable and safe hands.

Mike, thank you so much for doing what you do so well. You customer service is perfection! Should additional shipping be in my future, from my childhood home in Moon Township, you will be the only person that I will call. Please thank your staff for all their help.

Aloha,

Frank L.,Honolulu, HI

CONCEPT ART GALLERY – UPCOMING AUCTION ON NOVEMBER 1

October 22nd, 2014 by

The days of Big Steel are long gone in Western Pennsylvania. But the era of mills lighting up the night skies with fire and smoke lives on in the work of Aaron Gorson, who specialized in painting nocturnal landscapes of the region’s industrial past. One of Gorson’s finest, “Steelmaking at Night on the Mon,” is among the highlights at Concept Art Gallery’s fine art and antiques auction Nov. 1.

Painted in 1910, the oil-on-canvas is housed in a hand-carved, gilded Arts-and-Crafts-period frame. The painting was once owned by Arthur Riley, a noted collector of works by Western Pennsylvania artists.

Another painting with a regional background and a completely different point of view is an A.F. King daytime rural lakeside landscape. Best known for his nearly lifelike still lifes, King also journeyed into the local countryside to paint. Concept owner Sam Berkovitz calls this work the greatest A.F. King landscape he’s seen, citing the intricate detail in the tiny work. Sold by Pittsburgh’s famed Gillespie Gallery in the early 20th century, the 512-inch-by-9-inch work, titled “Lake Landscape With Sailboat,” rests in a gilded Victorian frame decorated with extensive scrolling.

Other paintings in the sale with local ties are Daniel Ridgeway Knight’s oil-on-canvas “The Washerwoman Along the Seine” and several pieces by Mary McKibbin. An ex-pat from Chambersburg, Franklin County, Knight worked mainly in France, and “The Washerwoman” was originally sold by the Gillespie Gallery. McKibbin, whose oil-on-board scenes depict Pittsburgh neighborhoods, taught at Schenley High School, where Andy Warhol was one of her students.

In the antiques section of the sale, bidders can compete for an elegant Tiffany Arabian-style desk lamp or a Pairpoint “Puffy” boudoir lamp. The sale includes a sizeable amount of high-end jewelry, such as a 3.3-carat pear-cut brilliant diamond ring set in platinum. Also in the mix are Eskimo art, a “crazy quilt” crafted by public-school students in Idaho, early maps of Pittsburgh, silver flatware and serving pieces, accessories, mint coin sets and art glass.

Previews are at Concept Art Gallery from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, until 8 p.m. Thursdays or online The sale will start at 10 a.m. Nov 1. Previews and the sale will be at 1031 S. Braddock Ave., Regent Square. Details: 412-242-9200 or www.conceptgallery.com

The Week That Was

October 4th, 2014 by

IMG_0232The best part of the shipping business is the variety of folks, items, and destinations you deal with. Here’s a quick sample from the past week:

  • Export crated and shipped a 900 lbs mechanical grapple going to Western Australia. As shown in the picture below, this awesome piece looks like the business end of of a tyrannosaurus rex!
  • Shipped ten beautiful works of art by local artist Michael Lotenero to the Morrison Gallery in Kent, CT
  • Picked-up and shipped to domestic and many international destinations lots purchased by 20 plus clients of Concept Art Gallery from the auction held on 10/27. Many of the paintings were from the estate of Jane Haskell, a very renowned Pittsburgh artist who passed away a year ago. We were very proud to have assisted Ms Haskell’s daughters in packing-up many of the remarkable pieces created by their mother.  Concept’s next auction is on December 6th.
  • Provided “last mile” delivery services for a logistics company coordinating the roll-out of a merchandising program to a national retailer. Stores visited ranged as far as Erie, PA and Johnstown, PA.
  • Crated and provided next-day transport services for a local art collector for a painting going to a restoration firm in Eastern PA. We received the call from this collector’s office on Tuesday afternoon, picked-up the piece & crated it that day, and transported on our own truck to deliver the next day.
