The best store ever! Letter I wrote to staff: "Dear Brinley, Every time I've spoken with you, it's made me feel better on a bad day (which is what art is supposed to do); never caused me any reason for doubt or stress; you speak very highly of your co-workers and owners and artists and their agents -so refreshing(!); you've instilled confidence in me as your client & in your gallery's professionalism, ability to please its clientele, your own professionalism and expert salesmanship; and most importantly: made me feel that you and your owners truly care about clients as human beings; value my business & show it; & keep clients well informed and happy so that they can plan ahead for their finances, travel, and purchases. Kudos especially on your last email! Every business transaction with you has been a unique pleasure, and every communique has been chock full of relevant, helpful, and exciting information!!! Finally, every time you take my calls, I can hear the smile in your voice upon hearing my name, or the sympathy when you lend an ear, or the expertise when you give advice. You are not just a salesperson. You are truly a Consultant!"
Watered down, overhyped crap. Hardly any of these artists will hold any value over time but that is what they try to convince you of. Almost none of them are in a museum or will ever be in a museum but they are trying to charge thousands of dollars for prints! Limited Editions they say, but when it's 1/500 or 1000 and the artist is still living and making crap art that takes 20 minutes to paint then the market is so oversaturated their work is worthless. It's all just a trend. Not to mention the owner is a greedy theif.
Fascination St. is my go-to gallery. I purchased my first piece from them about 1.5 years ago, and have remained impressed with their follow-up and friendliness. The staff stays in touch to let us know about special events with our favorite artist, and has gone out of their way to find out about commissioned pieces. I also appreciate that owners Aaron and Sandy support local nonprofits through hosting special events, and charitable donations. I would highly recommend a visit next time you are in the market for new art.
Buyer Beware. Had the most unpleasant experience with this Gallery. A Charles Schulz Lithograph was sold by the Gallery Director, which was represented as being an original and part of a limited edition. The price the Gallery charged reflected this. It later became apparent that the numbering on the Lithograph and the certificate were not right. The Owner, Aaron LaPedis, was rude and abrasive, and initially (before litigation being mentioned) refused to honor the warranty and written representation of his Gallery Director. In fact, Mr. LaPedis went on to say that I as the Buyer should have known the art was not correct. Mr. LaPedis clearly places little value on goodwill or the Gallery's reputation. The fact that the Gallery Director of Fascination St cannot be relied is equally troubling. In 25 years of purchasing animation art, I have never had such a bad experience with a Gallery. Can only say - BUYER BEWARE.
Great staff, very knowledgable – We were out in Cherry Creek enjoying a wonderful day when we discovered Fascination Street Gallery.
We were greeted by a wonderful staff who picked up on our relaxed vibe and absolutely did everything possible to make our visit enjoyable. The art was impeccable, the environment was relaxed and non-threatening. I recommend this gallery to ALL art lovers.
Avoid it. Period. – I have been to many art galleries in my 37 years from New York to L.A. I know the level of service to expect and the quality of art one can typically expect to find in them. When I visited Fascination St. Gallery I was very disappointed by the lack of knowledge by the salesperson helping me, and was very turned off by the "superior than you" attitude the owner displayed when we were there. There are many other art galleries in Denver that are much better than this one. I cannot sincerely recommend this art gallery to anyone, unless of course, you are the type of person who thinks that being talked down to by the owner of the gallery is a part of the shopping experience at an art gallery. I do not believe there is any room in my busy life for another shopping experience like the one my fiance and I had to endure while at Fascination Street Gallery.
A Friendly Gallery at Fascination Street! – I recently bought a new home and was in search of some outstanding art to fill my empty walls. A friend of mine recommended that I visit Fascination Street Gallery in Cherry Creek North. Usually I find galleries to be pretentious and unwelcoming however the opposite was true when I visited Fascination Street. I fell in love with a Thomas Arvid piece, and the owner and his staff could not have been friendlier. They opened a bottle of wine while I was there and we ended up talking about art for an hour!
I left the gallery Saturday with a beautiful work of art and new friends as well. I would definitely recommend this gallery as the experience of visiting the gallery is truly unique. The Fascination Street Gallery staff will go out of their way to make sure you have an enjoyable and welcoming experience whether it is just browsing or buying artwork.
