Testimonials

The experience with Ariel Galleries was wonderful to say the least.  I was looking for a painting to fit a precisely measured area and Ariel Galleries came to my rescue.  The gallery kept me posted on the painting's progress and delivered the finished product professionally packaged, and on time.  I would highly recommend their service and plan on using them in the future.  Thanks for everything,  Jeffrey S. Fisher

Tere, We are enjoying the painting!  The colors are so beautiful and the texture of oil painting is like no other art! We are so excited to have it in our home!   Julie and Michael Hamsa


"Tere, Mike and I are still enjoying our painting we bought from you last year.  We get so many compliments on it.  It just warms our house with it's beautiful colors!  You have such talented artists!"  Julie    


They look terrific. We will greatly enjoy both of these paintings in our living room and maybe office or refuge/guest bedroom. Thanks so much for your doing the frames. The oak frames match our dining room furniture perfectly.   Marlene Thornton
 

"Being someone who enjoys a good painting, I love my oil picture.  The detail is fabulous and I am still floored by getting such a high quality painting at such a reasonable price.  The picture was framed beautifully and with great taste.  I am a HUGE fan of Ariel Art Galleries and the very qualified staff and high quality paintings.  I highly recommend you visit Tere and her fine art pieces as soon as possible."  Dusty Miller, a very satisfied customer
 

"I enjoy all things tastefully and uniquely done.  A Wine and Art Pairing certainly fits the bill.  I’ve attended several Pairings and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the opportunity to meet some of Austin’s most interesting individuals.  I’m equally pleased with the quality and detail given to each “one-of-a-kind” painting and can’t wait to hang my recent purchase.  Ariel Art Galleries, it’s the place for totally unique art experience."    W.

"We were very excited to have one of our favorite prints replicated into a beautiful oil painting. Tere made the process easy and fun! We can't believe something so beautiful can be so affordable! We will definitely use Tere and Ariel Art Gallery for all of our future pieces. Yuen and Yvette Yung, Two Happy Customers
 
"Tere: Although not an expert in art, I have always been an admirer of it. I am delighted to have been introduced to your company, because I have been able to expand my collection in a manner that fits my lifestyle… I can shop online and narrow my choices before coming to visit you in person. Most of all, I love the fact that your artists have been able to tailor my pieces to fit my color scheme. Thank you!"  Tangela Bradshaw, Realtor
 

 "Tere,  when I saw the portrait of my granddaughter, it took my breath away.  It is absolutely beautiful.  It had the same effect on my son (her father).  He was working in our yard and I went outside with the portrait and turned it toward him.   He dropped what he was doing and immediately began to walk faster than I've ever seen him move (almost sprint) toward the portrait.  He was in awe of its beauty.  My daughter in law will be visiting us this evening and I cannot wait to see the expression on her face when she sees it.
You have been such a delight to work with during this process and the artists you use truly capture what is needed to make a picture come to life.  I will most definitely use your services in the future and I will highly recommend you to everyone I meet.  Again, thank you so much for giving me a keepsake that can be cherished forever."  Tami Meier
 

"I am a very happy owner of a new view picture from Ariel Art Galleries.  I recently purchased a condo and it had a blank wall in the bedroom.  Tere is my daughter's neighbor and she was so wonderful to help me with my dream of a faux "view" overlooking a Caribbean bay.  It really opened the room up.  Getting an original oil painting was very reasonable and Tere made every attempt to make the picture just as I wanted it.  I really love the look in the bedroom now.  It's like I'm on permanent vacation."  Nancy


I received the painting in good condition and very quickly. Thanks very much. I also appreciate the information about framing which was communicated through e-mail. I felt like I was actually shopping, instead of "virtual shopping."


"We are absolutely delighted with the new original art pieces that grace our reception area at West Austin Realty."   Tere really listened to what we wanted and also made some fabulous suggestions in terms of size and location, The artist truly captured the essence of the painting and the attention to detail is amazing.  Even the price was a shocker....in a good way!

"Tere, you were absolutely wonderful to work with every step of the way.  I will recommend Ariel Art Galleries to all our friends and look forward to working with you again in the future. "  Yvette & Jonathan Boatwright, Owners, West Austin Realty


"Great work on the painting – It looks like an original! Your technique is innovative and I would purchase again from your company.    All the best, Bruce Rosenbaum
