The gallery opened Oct. 6 on Main Street in old downtown Frisco and is spearheaded by interior designer David Call and artist Randy Jacobs.
Call, who is the gallery’s creative director, had been working with Jacobs through his interior design business for a number of years when the two decided to open a gallery.
Call had a few clients from his interior design business in the North Dallas area, and he said he found Frisco to be the perfect area to open the gallery that would bring in people from surrounding areas.
“We want [the gallery] to be a destination location,” Call said. “We want to be a wonderful beacon for Frisco, and we want everyone to feel free to come in and peruse the gallery and have a different experience around every corner.”
Call worked as an art agent in Dallas and said he has forged many relationships with artists. Through those connections, Call was able to collaborate with these artists who would be willing to showcase their work.
The 4,000 square feet of space features artwork from local and regional artists, including Cesar Llamas, Josh Shoemaker, Peace, Hope Harrison and H.C. Zachary.
“We’re really excited about all the people that want to be in here, and we’re selecting very carefully,” Call said.
Art styles range from mixed media, oil paintings, pop art, abstract, sculptures and intricate glass works.
“We really do have a mixed-bag of wonderful here at the gallery,” Call said.
Every piece of art in the gallery is for sale, and prices can range from $400-$10,000. Call said the gallery is working to diversify the price points to offer artwork that is more affordable.
“We want to have everything available to people so they’ll be happily surprised to what they can find in an art gallery,” Call said.
Call will also office his interior design services, David Call Interiors, from inside the gallery and will be able to help customers who may be looking to put artwork in their homes or offices.
“The gallery is going to be about art but it will also be an infusion of design with art, and how design is influenced by art and how art is influenced by design,” Call said.
The gallery is expected to open a gift shop in December that will include books, jewelry, handbags and other merchandise.
“People will be able to find unique gifts that complement the artwork,” Call said.
Aside from art exhibits, the gallery will hold live painting demos, classes and an artist speaker series. The gallery will also be a space to hold events, such as book signings and other community events.
Call is working to partner with the local art organizations in Frisco. Right now, Call said he is in the process of trying to meet everyone and see how Frisco Fine Art can be a partner in the city of Frisco.
“We’ve had an incredible response to everybody who has come in and we’ve very excited,” Call said.
