The Good Art Company
218 West Main Street
DescriptionLocated in the heart of historic Fredericksburg, Texas, The Good Art Company is a unique gallery featuring a collection of some of the best regional, national, and international artists in a rich array of genres. Gallery owner Mary Katherine Fickel, who comes from a family of professional artists and who is herself an artist, has instilled the gallery with her own sense of energy, enthusiasm, and style. The beautifully restored 4,000+ square foot historical building features high ceilings and native limestone walls with a contemporary infusion, creating an atmosphere that invites the collector to linger.
“There is a movement of new young art buyers emerging onto the art scene,” says Mary Katherine. “They are demanding unique pieces infused with an energy representational of their generation.” Boldly embracing this fresh viewpoint, Mary Katherine has brought together a portfolio of diverse art which steps outside the traditional Southwestern themes. The gallery’s success and growing notoriety throughout the US is fueled by a healthy economy and a well-traveled clientele comprised of both established and new collectors. With a beautifully crafted online storefront, the gallery offers convenient shopping options as well as a nationally acclaimed faculty of art instructors who teach out of the Gallery’s resort-based studio school.
“The Good Art Company specializes in representing the Best in Class within each art category,” says Mary Katherine. “We are extremely proud of our diverse portfolio and our excellent partnerships with well-established and seriously emerging artists who are as passionate about creating new art as we are in providing an outstanding showcase for their works.”
Situated in a fast-growing, exciting new art district in this historic Hill Country town, shopping, restaurants, and cultural activities abound in the gallery neighborhood. With its dedicated and growing collector following, The Good Art Company is poised to be one of the most well respected galleries in the region.
