“We loved the ACRE Philadelphia show! When buying for two galleries, it is nice to find such a wide variety of amazing artists in one place. The show was well put together and it seems every detail was taken care of for us. Everyone is always so nice and helpful and it is just a good vibe throughout!”
– Susan Shea, Phoenix Gallery, Lawrence KS
