About Us

What is the history of The Signature Gallery?
The Signature Gallery was originally founded in 1997 in Scottsdale, Arizona, as the Charles H. Pabst Gallery. With the success of the Scottsdale location, The Signature Gallery Laguna was opened January 1, 2008 to better serve the needs of art collectors and visitors of Southern California. Then on October 1, 2009, the third gallery location opened, The Signature Gallery Santa Fe. Charles Pabst's goal is to make each gallery unique, showcasing his work, as well as offering high quality art from other premier artists.

What type of art do you have?
We have artists who specialize in Original paintings, Acrylic and Oil, Bronze and Acrylic sculptures. We also have Limited Edition Giclee artwork. Although each gallery features the artwork of Charles Pabst, we have a selection of outstanding artist that vary with each location. Please go the the location name (at left), and select the location to see the artists available at that particular gallery.

Do you sell only originals?
Some of our Artists have only originals. Others have both originals and Limited Edition Giclée reproductions on canvas available for their best-selling originals. All of these are signed and numbered by the artist which make them highly collectible with the potential to increase in value. Many of our giclees can be created indifferent sizes if you need a particular size, and most of our giclees are heavily embellished by the artist to simulate the original.

What is a giclee?
A Giclee is a high-quality reproduction of a painting, using organic, water-based archival inks. The name is from the French word meaning "to spray," indicating how the print is created. The inks are rapidly "sprayed" through the micro-jets of a printer onto a canvas surface thus creating a piece of artwork amazingly similar to the original. Charles H. Pabst personally embellishes and signs each of his own giclees, giving each the look and feel of an original. A final coating is then applied to protect it from moisture and UV rays.

What about framing?
Each frame is selected by the artists to complement the artwork. You may also purchase the artwork unframed or we can help you in selecting a frame that will suit your needs.

Do your artists accept commissions?
Most of our artists accept commissions and have done so with great success. This is an ideal opportunity to have an original piece of artwork created just for you or your loved ones. Cost is usually based on size. With a 50 per cent down payment, a sketch will be issued to you by email or regular mail. With your approval, the commission can then be completed in about 4 to 6 weeks. Contact the Gallery Directors for more information.

Can the artwork be purchased online?
Of course, but not in the true sense of using a Shopping Cart, etc. We will need to discuss the specifics of your selection on the phone to complete your purchase. If you are able to make your selection using our web page, send us an email with your choices and we will get back to you with all the particulars. Call any gallery or e-mail us at info@thesignaturegallery.com.
