This saves you money, time, stress - who wouldn't sign up for that deal?

Private Sculpture Commissions

Sometimes you’ll love a bronze, but it isn’t quite right in size or doesn't have that one element your looking for.  Don't worry, we've got you covered! Almost all our artists do custom commission work, and all the commissions we’ve done have been a happy success for both the collector and the artist. It’s a great way to get exactly what you’re looking for.
Here’s how it works:
1) We meet and discuss all aspects of the project with you in detail and agree on a price. 
2) The gallery and artist make a "sketch" in clay and/or actual drawing of the project. 
3) We approve the "sketch" and take a 1/3 installment of the project cost. 
4) The Sculptor creates a "study" or "maquette" size sculpture of the finished sculpture.  If the sculpture comissioned is a "maquette" or "study" size, that is approved before we take it to casting.  If the sculpture is a monument or garden-sized bronze, the to-scale smaller sculpture is the model of the larger commissioned piece.  Once the smaller piece is approved, we take the 2nd installment of the project cost.  
5) A monumental piece is scaled up, and cast in bronze and color or "patina" is applied and all signed-off on by the client.  If it is a "study" or "maquette" piece, again the piece is cast in bronze at same size as in step (4), and the piece is colored and based with a wooden or granite base. 
6) Final installment of project cost is taken at time bronze is ready at foundry prior to final install & sculpture is delivered and installed in client's home.
7) Enjoy your new custom sculpture!

Painting Commissions

Ever fall in love with a painting and it's already sold? Or that piece is the wrong size or could use this or that in it...  Our artists are happy to provide you with a unique, one of a kind, painting for your home. 

We work directly with you and the artist to get you the piece you desire for your home. The artist then works up a sketch or paints a small study for you to approve. Once that is approved, they paint the commison to the size you need.  The client, approves the photograph of the finished work of art.  The piece is framed shipped direct to your home or office.

"I had finally found the artist we had been seeking for 6 years!"

"The minute I walked into Mountain Trails Fine Art in Santa Fe and saw the work of Jessica Garrett I believed I had finally found the artist we had been seeking for 6 years! I asked the gallery if Jessica Garrett would do a commission. The response was a resounding yes! We contacted Jessica and provided her with a photo of Torrey Pines and spoke with her about the space that we needed to fill and how important the light would be to us and the space. She sent us interim photo's of the work and I even visited her to see the painting in its infancy. It was such a positive experience and now we have the painting of our dreams for our space. Many thanks to Jessica, a very talented young artist, and to the gallery for such professional and friendly service."  -Leslie Harnish

Installments: Payments / Pay as you go option

We love to help our collectors get the art that moves them on their walls and into their homes. Are you new to collecting art?  Buying art is an experiance, it's a marathon, not a sprint.  Picking up that first quality work of art can sometimes be a lot to take on at one time.  So, to help not only first time buyers - but on larger purchases or anyone on a budget, we're can help by splitting up the cost of that beautiful work of art.  We can spit up a purchase price into 2, 3, or even 6 payments if necessary.  We ship the work once it's paid off.  This isn't necessary for most buyers, but a service we're happy to provide if needed!

Philanthropy & Charitable Giving

Collectors can buy or commission a work of art to donate to their Alma Mater (monumental bronzes representing their college mascot, for example), their business (a bronze or painting that reflects an area of their organization) or their community (a work to beautify an area and depict the history and spirit of a place, or its unique wildlife).

Talk with your CPA, but when donating through your college, or a 501(c)3 non-profit, many times the donation is wholly or significantly tax deductible. Many times the art can be listed as a fixture and expensed. There are so many ways that art can enrich communities, business headquarters, college campuses, and corporate common areas!

What better way to give, than through the gift of art?  We've worked with many tremendous people and organizations – we can easily help walk you through the process!
