Recently, I came across a fascinating article, by Maximiliano Duron. It gives many thoughtful suggestions as to why, after what the world has endured during the early spring to the present, many have turned to collecting Art. Duron calls upon Mark Oldman, a wine expert turned Art Collector.
We have had to Shelter in Place, often making our homes, schools, and offices the same location. Under the same roof. We see the Same walls each day. We see the same images each day. Enter the internet as the key to our passage for escape.
I’ve spoken with many new collectors over the last few months, and some who have always been Art Collectors. The newer collectors were seeking a new “window” of inspiration. With so little in one’s control, the ability to breathe new life into different areas of the home released imprisoned and impassioned souls.

The Creation of Art, throughout Millions of years has preserved the sanity of not only the artists but those viewing the sanity upon the canvas or the insanity that the viewer has experienced. Those who create are compelled, by vision, visual interactions, a face with a wisp of hair out of place, may it be a lovely lady walking across the street, or an old street man with one swaft of hair dancing across his wrinkled , worn face. To an artist, it’s no different.
We are proud to host some of the Best Artists in the Texas Panhandle. Their Art is a diverse collection of art and handcrafted unique pieces. Each artist has a style that cannot be confused with any other artist. The Gallery has become an amazing array of Beauty to behold, and to be taken to a forever home.
Just prior to this horrible Pandemic, we began our Art Gallery remodel at Sonya’s Art Gallery on Historic Route 66. All in all, the remodel is complete. We now wait for a curative for this virus, to release all the human race to freedom and human interaction.
We began a remodeling project approximately one month ago. And with that, a business remodel , as well.
The Gallery has been a Work in Progress and a labor of love. A lot of labor for Jay, and I love how it’s looking!
So very many have been supportive: artists, spouses, neighbors, friends, customers who didn’t mind a little mess, and more, they have all been been a factor in the foreseeable success of this new journey. By donations, advice, time, labor, supplies, food, cheering on, “how’s it going?” messages, …Everyone has Participated!
Realtors, Decorators, and House Stagers, Sonya’s is an untapped resource for your Art needs. We have 24 local Artists whose work could dramatically increase the opportunity for a quick sale on your house.
Empty houses take longer to sell than furnished, occupied, or staged houses. Vacant houses sold for 6% less than occupied houses and stayed on the market longer according to a study from the Appraisal Institute.
