It’s not just her last name – it’s her passion. Dawn Painter is a second-generation owner of La Gallerie, an art gallery in Historic Saint Charles. Since taking over the family business in September 2015, Dawn has rolled up her sleeves.
“For 20 years, La Gallerie has been a destination for unique, one-of-a-kind art,” Dawn said. “As owner, I ensure that we offer our customers an opportunity to select from a variety of styles, which are not ‘run of the mill’ duplicates found at big box and large retail stores.
“Our traditional, modern, contemporary and fun art and home décor has been selected from a wide range of interior design houses for the unique flair that will be a topic of conversation.”
La Gallerie features affordable, original art such as oil paintings, giclées and print-on-print pieces, including many by local artists. Customers can spruce up their homes throughout the year, thanks to rotating seasonal merchandise, home décor items, mirrors and gifts.
Once a customer has fallen in love with a piece of artwork, they can select its setting without ever leaving the store. La Gallerie’s on-site framer can highlight that piece with any of their wide variety of frames.
The company’s website is currently under construction. In the meantime, look for La Gallerie on social media.
