Whether it is a major metropolitan city or quaint, picturesque borough, it seems as though every community boasts of a well-kept secret individuals must all experience at least once. From the antiquated Italian restaurant to that unique used book store down the road, we seem to pride ourselves in introducing others to these wondrous and unexpected finds.
Secluded from the hectic strip malls, yet located in the city’s core,
Canada offers its residents as well as cross-border shoppers an outlet to satisfy their distinctive art and home décor needs. Founded by
Art Expressions has welcomed consumers through its doors for the past 13 successful years. Branching out from the more traditional retail shops, this husband and wife team set themselves apart by selecting pieces which are 'different' as opposed to 'popular'. Their primary goal - evoke curiosity and ignite conversation.
Maximizing each square foot of this eight-room, two-story ‘home-turned-gallery’, its walls and floor space overflow with extraordinary paintings, colourful mouth-blown glass vases, unusual metal wall art and the occasional eye-catching piece of furniture guaranteed to spark up a room. Selecting the most edgy, yet tasteful items from their frequent ventures to Ontario and British Columbia art shows, the success of
Art Expressions has always been based on word-of-mouth from satisfied customers. With minimal advertising and lack of major chain buying-power, their perseverance has been rewarded with returning clients despite a struggling economy.
The Argent’s latest venture Art Express Décor, an online store, has recently been geared up to meet with the needs of their many out-of-town customers who may now have access to their entire gallery in the convenience of their home or office. Browsing the store's latest pieces and ever-changing collection is certain to satisfy both local and international purchasers as new items are posted daily.
With their inventory not only visually stunning, but practical as well, Art Expressions features many functional pieces including lamps, vases and of course mirrors, from various independent artists. Toronto-based Mella Roman has provided much of their hand-painted Bohemian crystal glassware which is all individually signed. Also, fellow Canadian Kristina Daniels has various sculptural glass pieces that are truly exceptional. This multi-faceted artwork is what long-time customers have come to expect.
