Antiques, vintage, old and re-purposed are our favorite types of merchandise. Furniture is abundant, with accents of shabby chic, and primitive, along with painted items. The unusual, glass, collectibles, elegant decorator items, books, and one of the ladies' favorites, jewelry, can be found though out the store. But one of the things we are very proud to feature is Gallery Art.
The museum is truly a one-of-a-kind. It is located in the former Bank of Weston building in historic downtown Weston, MO. The museum exhibits the world's largest collection of woven silk tapestries (over 300) produced 200 years ago on punch card mechanical looms. This process was the first to utilize the same punch card technology that would eventually lead into the invention of the modern-day computer.
The museum preserves and shares the history of this long-lost and largely forgotten guild. Every tapestry in the collection is a digitized copy of an original painting by one of over 85 different Master Artists from the 19th and 20th centuries, including Francisco Goya, Mariano Alonzo Perez, Rembrandt, Raphael, Guido Reni and Elizabeth Sonrel. The collection also serves as the only evidence of many paintings that have either been lost over time, or altogether unknown.
The museum also boasts an impressive art research library with the Grove Art Dictionary, E. Benezil-"Dictionnaires des Peintres, Sculptures, Dessinateus, et Graveurs", Propylaen Kunstqeschichte, and "The Art Galleries of Erope", as well as many rare books over 100 years old.
