A beloved annual tradition continues at Rowe Fine Art Gallery with ‘The Heart of Art’ on Friday, Feb. 2, at 4 p.m. Ever since gallery owners Ken and Monica Rowe opened their doors in 2010, they have designated the first Friday in February as the day they show appreciation to their clients.

If you have ever purchased a Ken Rowe sculpture or a piece of art from Rowe Fine Art Gallery, you are invited to stop by for a special sweet treat. And if you’ve never purchased art from the gallery, this is the perfect time to browse its selection of sculptures, paintings and jewelry. Some of the gallery’s artists will be on hand to thank collectors in person as well as talk about their creative process and the pieces they have planned for 2024.

“Who’s at the heart of art?” ponders Monica Rowe. “Our collectors, that’s who! Ken and I are so grateful for the clients who have supported us for the past 30-plus years, both through Rowe Fine Art and by purchasing Ken’s sculptures from other esteemed galleries across the Southwest. During our monthly shows, we shine the spotlight on our award-winning family of artists, but in February, it’s all about you, the art lovers who have given us and our artists a great life.”

Art collectors may not realize that their relationship with Rowe Gallery goes beyond making purchases. The gallery’s associates offer at-home consultation that includes everything from choosing new artwork to rehanging old favorites after a remodel. They are also available to help select the ideal gift for that special someone, whether you’re shopping in person, over the phone or online. (Pssst: Valentine’s Day is Feb. 14!)

“We have the nicest clients,” continues Monica. “Our artists’ work winds up in incredible homes and businesses – Ken and I have had the opportunity to witness that firsthand. We’ve seen people have very emotional reactions and connect on a deep level to the artwork in our gallery. We are honored to be stewards of these masterpieces and match them to their ideal home.”

The gallery, located under the bell tower in Patio de las Campanas at Tlaquepaque Arts & Shopping Village, is open Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Friday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, call 928-282-8877, visit RoweGallery.com, or find us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
