Thanks for taking the time to learn a little more about us!
Just Lookin' is the gallery you ‘come home to' and take home with you. We are a multi-media art and framing gallery specializing in original art, hand-pulled prints and sculpture by over 50 living black American, African and West Indian artists. We exhibit a unique collection of artworks; many of our artists hang in prestigious museums, others are relatively unknown. If you are looking for a great selection of unique art in a relaxed setting - visit us! Getting into the art business in 1990 and opening Just Lookin' in 1994 was our solution to the endless frustrations we encountered while attempting to collect original black art. We have been educating and nurturing art lovers since the beginning. Our mission is to expose you to the diversity of fine original art and help educate you about the rewards of fine art collecting. We offer a vast selection that appeals to the new art lover as well as the experienced collector. We have works in all price ranges, mediums and subjects. Whether you are buying your first piece of art or adding to your collection; we are always available to answer your questions, give advice, tell you more about a particular artist or simply share our love of art. The latest original works by contemporary artists and prominent 20th & 21st century black masters are featured in our Virtual Gallery.
We strive to provide a friendly atmosphere, both in the gallery and online, to enhance your experience and encourage your exploration of art. A move to our current location in 1995 gave us space to exhibit over 1,000 original works of art at all times. Come in or call and introduce yourself.
