We strive to make the artwork-buying process collaborative, creative, & simple

Artwork On Approval [TEST-DRIVE A PAINTING]

At JCO'S, we want to match our clients with artwork they will love for a lifetime. But it can be hard to tell if a painting that looks gorgeous in the gallery will fit into your decor and lifestyle. Whether you're a seasoned collector with an established collection or a brand-new art buyer just starting to fill their walls, choosing work that fits the space and ambience of your home is of the utmost importance.

With a sizable buying decision to sleep on, it might make sense to have a sleepover. 

The process itself is extremely simple: A client decides on a piece of work she wishes to take home overnight. She will fill out an official, legally binding Agreement to Loan Artwork-- in which the client assumes responsibility for any damage the painting might incur, and a return date & time is mutually agreed upon. After this paperwork has been signed by client and gallery, the artwork may leave the gallery "on approval"-- transporting work form the gallery to her home is the client's responsibility. Clients may take a painting home for a 24 to 48 hour period... Typically, a Sunday evening to Monday afternoon. Take this time to live with the piece, and see if it fits seamlessly into your space.
