Art Traditions is an American company located in southern California. Founded in 2004, the Company has been publishing and distributing fine art paintings, sculpture and limited edition prints by national and international artists.
Honesty, integrity and affordability are our hallmarks
Art Traditions began publishing in 1994, as a small Fine Art company, with the goal of managing several talented artists and producing signed & numbered limited edition prints from their original paintings. Today, we are an experienced Art Consultancy, able to acquire and sell Fine Art paintings and sculpture for investment and decorative purposes.
We specialize in your Collection; locating and acquiring collectible pieces by Andy Warhol, Lichtenstein, Picasso, Sam Francis and others.
Over the years, Art Traditions has represented Mark King, Arbe , Samir Sammoun, Zu Ming Ho, Charles Lynn Bragg , Maurice Meyer, Michael Joseph , Lindsay Dawson , Maria Zielinska, Stephen Schubert and many others, with the goal of bringing quality artwork to middle America. Today, Art Traditions no longer operates a physical retail Gallery, but rather works through other art dealers and Galleries, or online through its own website and affiliated online sellers.
As the saying goes: “If you can’t beat ‘em , join ‘em” . And so we have. We now represent only a select few artists: BERBERYAN, Zu Ming Ho, Charles Lynn Bragg and Arbe; but we maintain a keen eye for quality. Our goal is still to bring quality artwork at fair prices, throughout the United States.
Additionally, we offer Art Consulting for Estate Sales, Art Restoration and some framing services for the artwork we sell.
