    open quotations I was looking for a large piece of artwork for the space above my fireplace because I didn't have anything nearly large enough. I looked on the website for days and this piece just called out to me. I wasn't disappointed! It is really large and took up the entire space. The quality and value is great. I love the colors and I'll be buying another piece of artwork from here soon. close quotations

    bedroom with mounted acrylic artwork 5 stars

    open quotations I absolutely LOVE my new artwork and Gallery Direct! After moving into my first new home, I desperately needed art. A friend told me about Gallery Direct and could not be happier with the end results. First of all, the selection they have is absolutely endless. I literally spent 3 months exploring all of the images and didn't even get close to seeing half of them. I eventually narrowed my search down to 10 images and then the real fun began... with the countless options! I got to choose from canvas, paper, birchwood, aluminum acrylic surfaces for the art with a plethora of choices for framing. It doesn't get any better for creating a truly unique art display. Once I made my selections and ordered, my custom art arrived within the week and I am absolutely over the moon with the quality. The canvas prints are so real looking, sturdy, thick and heavy -- far superior to other companies I had explored and seen first-hand. The hardware for the acrylic pieces is excellent quality and more importantly, easy to install (I was able to hang them by myself). I also had two pieces printed on aluminum which immediately updated the look of my living room -- major WOW factor and super cool. I have and will continue to highly recommend Gallery Direct to my family and friends. A++ close quotations

    open quotations This is the third canvas I have purchased from Gallery Direct. I have nothing but praise for both the beauty of these canvases and for the quick delivery. This particular piece stands alone in my dining room and pulls all of my colors together perfectly. It is just lovely. I purchased two others by Sylvia Angeli and they are displayed over my fireplaces. I have received many compliments on all of them. My home looks wonderful! Thank you Gallery Direct. close quotations
