Consignment Finds at Art is Art

Now entering its second year, Art is Art is a pleasant little storefront in Lakewood, not far fown Oram Street from the Greenville Avenue Whole Foods market. The store aims to offer "an eclectic selection of paintings by local artists, urbanized furniture, modern/retro furniture, new one-of-a-kind tables, funky gifts and accessories for the home."

They feature a mixture of furniture finds, art pieces and jewelry. While you have to look carefully around the shop's two rooms, you'll likely find something you fancy at an affordable price. Buying unique local art instead of a framed that's more like it!

The gallery hosts its next show on October 14th, featuring awesome paintings by Dallas artist, Justin Preston and Austin artists, dm.pevey and Lincoln. Complimentary beer and wine will be served (while it lasts).

The store is also having a 20% off sale on most furniture to celebrate its first anniversary.

Update 9/28/06: The store was selected as Best Art Support in the Dallas Observer's annual "best of' issue. The kudos: "The store has a friendly vibe that's only natural since the gals are so supportive of local creatives."
