GALVESTON, Texas, April 28, 2014
Affaire d’art – International Fine Art Gallery, located in downtown Galveston’s historic district at 23rd and Postoffice Streets, has been sold by Sharis DeJaynes and purchased by Alicia Boles and Nikki Thompson. Boles has been the assistant manager of the gallery since January 1, 2014 and together with Thompson purchased Affaire d’art effective today. The gallery will continue to operate under the same name, business philosophy and location.
January 5, 2012, Sharis DeJaynes opened Affaire d’art, to expose and market local, national and international artists. “Dreams do come true! The gallery’s growth since inception has exceeded expectations. The talent the gallery has attracted and represents, as well as the public’s glowing approval has been phenomenal,” said DeJaynes today.
The gallery exhibits a diverse group of original fine art from qualified artists from 10 nations of the world, including works from local Galveston artists, artists from across the State of Texas and other distant states. Forty-six artists are proud to provide a striking multidimensional collection of art for discriminating art collectors and art enthusiasts.
“I could not be happier transferring one of my dreams to Boles and Thompson. Their energy and enthusiasm, involvement in the art community and their combined business expertise will ensure the gallery’s continued successful creative venture and enhance Galveston’s art community! I have the utmost faith in and regard for Boles and Thompson, and will continue to support them in any way I can,” says DeJaynes.
“This is such an exciting time for us. It has been a dream of ours to open a gallery in Galveston and bring our community together through art. We are truly blessed by this opportunity to bridge various artist communities and provide its artists greater exposure to new markets. We look forward to seeing this dream through to fruition,” says Boles and Thompson.
DeJaynes looks forward to renewed focus on her own art, among her many other endeavors. Paintings, books and other works by DeJaynes will continue to be on exhibit at Affaire d’art.
