Customer Service


We Trust You
We opened Patina Gallery in 1999 with a heartfelt commitment to present soul-stirring works through excellent customer service. As a small business, we connect our clients and artists by offering the opportunity to explore, understand and experience together the beauty of handmade art. We hope these principles and practices will promote trust and respect among our makers, clients and gallery.
