Handworks Gallery services

Giving Art

Art makes a unique gift for a birthday, anniversary, retirement or wedding.

Handworks Gallery gift cards are available in any denomination and are also accepted at our ‘TAKE OUT’ Art Rental service.

Lay Away option

Our layaway program is a wonderful way to secure the piece of art you love and pay for it over a specified period of time. The time period and deposit amount are mutually agreed upon and the artwork remains reserved for you at the gallery until the purchase is complete.

Delivery and Installation

Delivery and installation services are available for an additional charge. If you need assistance getting an artwork from the Gallery to you, we can arrange for a qualified art installer to deliver and hang the work in your space.

Corporate Art Consulting

Our Art Consultant will gladly visit your office to help you select the appropriate art for your work environment. 


We offer our clients a unique Virtual Placement tool.

Virtual art placement is a process in which a particular work of art can be digitally installed into an available image of an existing or proposed location.

Now you are able to see for yourself how any artwork would hang on your own wall before purchasing or renting a work.

To use the virtual placement tool please follow the following steps:

STEP 1 Make a picture of the space that you search an artwork for

STEP 2 Upload this image on to your computer

STEP 3 Choose an artwork from our on-line gallery

STEP 4 Clicking on artwork to see it in a large format

STEP 5 Now click on the eye icon that is visible under each painting, this will place the painting in your space

STEP 6 Follow the additional steps described on the virtual tool page
