Commissions

For over 35 years Stonington Gallery has facilitated special commissions between clients and artists. From small works–such as paintings and jewelry–to monumental projects–like totem poles, house screens, and public art–we connect artists of the highest integrity and technical skill to your projects. If you have a vision, we have a solution. Please contact the gallery to inquire about special commissions with our artists, and take a look at some of the dreams we’ve made reality in the past:
