Less organized than our main site, this is like an on-line mall!
Here you will find paintings from realistic to Ab Ex, unique works in glass and ceramics, art reference books and Asian artifacts from our past Some may
eventually be listed on our site or shown in our gallery. You may
have to contact us for a more complete description. Our two main websites are LSDArt (for more affordable and sale art & collectibles) and Davenport & Shapirowhich offers a selection of our fine art offerings. Both Sites provide full descriptions and often artist biographies (click to see example) or links to artist's websites. There you can also check ourshow schedule.
We have opened Davenport & Shapiro Gallery at 37 Newtown Lane in East Hampton. Our current fall hours are noon to 6 Thursday and Monday - noon to 6 or 7pm Friday and Saturday. Open other times by chance or appointment. Feel free to call 631-537-3324. We live in the neighborhood. We will be closed much of January and February for alterations, but, again, just call us and we'll be more than happy to open for you.
Consider this site like an Antique Mall designed to give you an idea of some of the less expensive, often unique, objects, prints, paintings and especially ceramics that we can offer you. The fact is that given the high costs involved in doing art and modernism shows and the time and expense of taking pictures, adding descriptions and uploading to auction sites or our own site have led us to this alternate idea ... letting you browse and ask us questionsin much the you would in an antique center, where you go to a counter and ask to see something in a consignor's cabinet!
Paintings and sculpture are priced as temporary
bargains or close-outs, marked up an average of 20-25%. Beware, once
they make it onto our website or travel to a show, we have to raise the
prices to a level which can pay the expenses. In many cases we show you
our gallery price.
This web site is under continuous construction and change. Frankly, we need to clean up some of our shelves, photograph and categorize our offerings. In the meantime, you are welcome to shop www.LSDArt.com, or ask us whether we have things in your interest area.
You can call us at 631 537 3324, or, if we are at a show 631 834 6919, email us at LSDArt@mac.com, or contact us through our website.
We ship at cost, and will bring to one of our shows for your pickup.

When we sell an item on ebay we make every effort to note every blemish, but on items in our gallery and on the website, as a matter of practicality, we only note repairs or unusual problems, but we will be happy to examine carefully any piece you are interested in and issue a more detailed description and provide additional email pictures if desired.
