Who We Are
Heartworks Gallery was created during the first isolating year of the pandemic with the goal of encouraging myself and my community-involved artist friends to focus on producing art and the positive that goes along with it. At the present time, we offer to promote and sell their original work without gallery commissions or mark-ups for myself.
Who is represented here? Professionals who have pursued their unique art while teaching, mentoring teens with special needs, volunteer caregiving, volunteering for wildlife rescue, hospitals and other non-profit organizations. Our artists have passion for art and compassion for others.
The physical location of Heartworks Gallery shares space with Raymond Klumb Architect (my husband) in The Stronghold Professional Center Building in Pearce, AZ. Given the 'no additional overhead' of this opportunity, we can offer original art without the 100% mark-up required by traditional brick and mortar galleries. Profits from all sales go directly to the individual artist!
Our Secondary Market features currently owned works for sale by collectors at prices below the original gallery cost - a chance to find art treasures!
We have decided to forego a true e-commerce site with "buy now" options. Our philosophy is that an art purchase is special and ideally that it be seen in person prior to purchase. We want to ensure that all of your questions are answered and that your experience buying art from us is a happy one, a personal one.
In 2023, Heartworks has plans to begin the process of finding retail space in Tucson and evolve into a gallery that features not only fine original art from local artists but unique home treasures, art objects and artisan jewelry. We'll keep you updated as that happens. For now, we hope that when you check our website, you will see that we feature some very special artists, powerful and mature in their work and their vision. It's about Art and about who we Are. Together we hope to bring to you our Heartworks.
