Maintaining Your Art Collection
Need a Bronze Cleaning Kit? click here
For all other materials, please contact us. We can help establish best practices that you can implement to clean your artwork yourself, or connect you with trained professionals and conservators that can work on-site to help maintain your collection on a regular basis, or help with highly distressed pieces that need major work.
Pricing and Discounts
The pricing is set by the artist based on their costs and level of experience. We are an artist-driven organization and take a smaller commission than most galleries. We do not adjust the retail pricing, nor do we bargain as this will only devalue of the artist's entire body of work. Valuations are based primarily on the last sold price of a piece. It behooves you as a patron to not buy art that has been severely discounted. Instead support artists you admire and watch your art investment continue to appreciate as your favorite artists climb in acclaim.
Past patrons of Columbine Gallery receive 5% off or free shipping to show our gratitude but not devalue the artwork. This discount does not apply with any other offers, nor for custom commissions. If you have purchased from us in the past, please make us aware of this at the time of your purchase. Should you purchase online, we will refund the discount prior to shipping your order.
On occasion we use coupon codes in advertisements or newsletters for free shipping or a % off. You can look for these specials here.
Selling Your Artwork
Sorry, we don't purchase artwork. All the artwork on display at Columbine Gallery is consigned by the artists we represent. You may find your collection has out grown your space. We unfortunately cannot consign every secondary market piece. We are happy to list it on our online store, but we recommend you attempt selling the artwork on your own. Be sure to have your artwork appraised by a certified appraiser. Here are a few resources to consider: Sell Your Art. Artsy Consign, Larsen Gallery, Sotheby's, Ebay, Art Appraisal, Colorado Appraiser. Once you make room for more art - please check our online store.
Submit Your Work

On our trip to Boerne, Texas we installed a sculpture at a client's home. This ideal placement just happened to work out beyond comprehension - we knew Denny Haskew's mother and child sculpture "Moulding Our Future" would look nice - but this exceeded everyone's expectations. The sandstone patina against the texas limestone, the flow of the composition against the archway. We think this is a perfect example of Living with Art.
Below are images from the installation. We hope you enjoy seeing sculptures in the air - we're happy to install your next fine art purchase.

Wayne Salge has just shared his latest compositions. Per usual, they are packed with strong form and a clever mix of sophistication and humor. These monuments are being cast in bronze at the foundry now. If you'd like more information about either or both please call or email,

Columbine's Dan Augenstein was featured live, this time giving Fox31 anchors a quick painting lesson.
Congratulations to Columbine's Daniel Augenstein whose painting is featured in the April Southwest Art Magazine story on the Colorado Governor's Art Show & Sale
As the only show in Colorado that features both established and emerging artists based in the state, the Governor’s Art Show kicks off on Friday, April 28, at the Loveland Museum/Gallery. It’s more than just the finest Colorado painters and sculptors coming together in one exhibition—there are also live music performances, flash mobs, opera singers, a plein-air festival, bagpipers, and more. The Governor’s Art Show is celebrating its 26th year thanks to sponsorship from the Loveland and Thompson Valley Rotary Clubs, with net proceeds from the exhibition going to local youth and community organizations. John Kinkade, a co-chair of the annual show, says the mission of the event is twofold: “We aim to support our local community in need while also introducing Colorado residents to their artists,” he says. “We have so much artistic talent in our state to share.”
The festivities begin on Friday, April 28, with an opening gala and sale from 5 to 9 p.m. preceding the public opening on Saturday, April 29. Other highlights include Saturday artisan exhibits on May 6, 13, and 27 and a plein-air festival and auction throughout downtown Loveland on May 20. Kinkade says the aim is to make the whole event “festive, fun, and participatory.”
This year’s show features artwork in every kind of style, from traditional western themes to abstract ideas. There’s something for everyone, as each artist is invited to bring four pieces to the exhibition, totaling more than 230 works on view. And while there are many notable returning and established exhibitors, exactly 50 percent of the participants are new to the event—due, in part, to a blind jury made up of new committee members each year. The show bestows 10 awards of merit and a Best of Show award.
Among the 300 artists who submitted work to be juried, Sabrina Stiles, Nancy Wylie, Pem Dunn, and Richard Schilling are just a few of the 55 artists selected. Mark Andrew Bailey, Karen Storm, Lora Witt, and Don Hamilton, all of whom won individual awards of merit last year, are returning. Noteworthy artists Alyson Kinkade and Jane DeDecker collaborated on a piece last year that was named Best of Show in a unanimous vote for a sculpture for the first time ever. They’ll both be returning as well. Finally, James Biggers, an Estes Park-based artist, has participated in the event every year since its inception—and this year will be no different for the landscape painter.
This is Jane Hunt’s first time participating in the Governor’s Art Show. The Denver-based impressionist submitted her oil COLORADO SUMMER, choosing to focus on the dramatic sunset while minimizing the majesty of the mountains in the background. “There’s a lot of artists in the event that I admire,” Hunt says. “It will be nice to get together with Colorado artists and share that connection.” —Katie Askew

It's been an exciting couple of years for NSG artist's Ted Fleming and Sherry Tipton. They have purchased land in Greece where they frequent to carve marble at International stone symposiums, then got married, and now they're closing on a house in New Orleans, a place Fleming has deep roots. We're eager to see this classic New Orleans courtyard filled with the couple's neoclassical stone sculptures. Shop their work online here.
"We've been trying to get back there for many years, so it's a dream come true for us. New Orleans has been my family home for about 10 generations, so it's good to be going home." -Edward Fleming
