Client Testimonial

My wife and I have shopped for art for our home in Tulsa, Springfield, Kansas City, Carthage and Eureka Springs. When we stop in Local Color Art Gallery to view the art of local artists, we are always impressed by the high quality of art available in all mediums. We’ve bought many beautiful items there.
