The Geary Gallery is well-known as a preeminent Fairfield County fine art gallery. For more than 35 years, its proprietors, Anne and Tom Geary, have been more than art dealers. They are friends to artists, spotting talent and market appeal, and nurturing careers, with a lively schedule of art exhibits that rotate every month. They feature both Connecticut-based artists with national reputations and well-known artists from along the eastern seaboard.
They are also consummate retailers — meeting the practical needs of the professional arts community, consumers and collectors via Accent Picture Framing & Accent Restoration, companion businesses to the gallery.
Accent Picture Framing provides consumers and collectors with high-quality custom framing with over 2,000 corner samples. Their professionalism and craftsmanship have expanded into the arena of creating custom shadowboxes to display 3-D objects. From antiques and collectables to cherished mementos, the Gearys are the area experts for framing important, unique and even over-sized items. As Tom Geary likes to say, “Special orders don’t upset us!”
Accent Restoration is the area’s expert resource when you have a painting that needs to be cleaned or repaired, or a frame that’s chipped or broken. Well known to art collectors, they bring treasured paintings and frames back to their original beauty. Accent Restoration’s projects hang in leading galleries, museums, historical societies and private residences throughout Fairfield County.
For a spectacular and unique gift, nothing could compare to the lasting gift of a custom portrait of someone you love, your family, pet or even your home. Geary Gallery’s Custom Portrait Service makes the process easy and affordable by special arrangement with a select few of some of our best artists, known for their mastery of their subjects and mediums.
Over the years, Geary Gallery has enjoyed relationships with hundreds of artists, and have hosted almost 200 exhibits. The gallery shows several different artists each month. Some of the more notable artists are Peter Max, John Stobart, Andrew N. Wyeth and Ray Ellis.
The Gearys have also launched careers. For example, the Chinese artist Xue Jian-Xin had his first U.S. show at the Geary Gallery before he was even free to leave his native Suzhou Providence in the People’s Republic. He has since emigrated and gone on to a well-respected career here. He continues to exhibit at the Geary Gallery.
Recognizing the value of the Internet as a vehicle for globally promoting the work of the artists they represent, the Gearys established this online art gallery. The art gallery has become a marvelously eclectic resource for the art viewer and collector. The Gearys’ willingness to trust their instincts about the artists they handle — operating outside the sometimes stifling environment of the art establishment — provides opportunities for Fairfield County art lovers to “discover” an artist.
