In this challenging time, we at Maine Art Hill are hoping to make your life a little easier and a little more fun. Using various technologies, local delivery, and private appointments, we have many ways to help stay connected to our artists and our galleries.
Shopping from Home
For many small businesses, this will be a way to stay connected to clients. We have an incredible website full of high-resolution images, artist bios, and insights and stories from our artists. With a simple phone call or email, we can share a great deal without you ever leaving your home. We offer five ways to help you through this and are open to other ideas.
Online Links – Thanks to the organization of our website, it is possible to create new links that showcase only the artist or works you love. We can share these with you both via email or text.
Virtual Appointment with a Gallery Associate – With the power of FaceTime or Skype, you can virtually chat “face to face” with one of our staff. As they walk around the gallery with you, they share details and up-close information on any works you find interesting.
Sharing a Video of Particular Pieces or Artists – Email or call to give us the artists and or pieces you love. We will create a video just for you by walking around the galleries and featuring the artwork you request, like the Face Time option, but not as interactive.
Virtual Art Placement – Again, thanks to technology, we can take any home photo you have and virtually place the specific pieces you are interested in on your wall and send you the images. Again this requires an email, text, or phone call, in which we discuss the pieces you love. Then just a few quick measurements, a little tech magic, and we virtually place the art in your home, so you can see how it looks. Check out the images below to see what we mean.
Lyman Whitaker Wind Sculptures – Even Lyman Whitakers Wind Sculptures can be virtually placed in your yard as easily as paintings can be placed on your wall. Again, all we need is a few simple measurements so we can create an image showing virtually what the sculptures look like installed in your space.
Free Home Delivery– Within a 100-mile radius, we deliver any piece of purchased artwork directly to your home free of charge. This includes Lyman Whitaker Wind Sculptures that are on the property and small enough to go in the van. We will follow all CDC guidelines regarding the cleanliness of our delivery van and the health of our staff who is entering your home. All we ask is that you do the same. At the time of the sale, we will work out the details.
Shopping at Home
(This is a little different than shopping FROM home.)
This is a free, private multi-piece home show. You let us know what you want to see and we bring it to you. Again this is within a 100-mile radius of our galleries. We show up at your home with multiple pieces of your choosing. Together we “try them on” in various wall spaces. If you decide to purchase, installation is also included free of charge.
Shopping at the Galleries
Private Gallery Visits – First, give the gallery a call to speak to one of our associates and set up a private appointment either before or after hours. An appointment may also be possible on days the gallery is closed. Know that all the galleries are CDC compliant and are cleaned and sanitized before your visit.
Curbside Pick-up – Finalize all your purchases in any way that works for you, then let us know when you are coming to pick up. We meet you “curbside” at one of our many preferred parking spaces. We load your new works right into your car.
As you can see, we are here to help.
With all of these precautions in place, we are hopeful that we can help you find new pieces of art to compliment your home.
We are happy to help you in any way, just contact us. Working together is what we do.
