Reflections


Thirty years ago when Diane Foster and I created the idea for Eclectics Gallery, the kid in this picture was in my belly. Now he's old enough to have babies of his own. Time sure flies. Diane sadly passed away many years ago but her legacy lives on. Over the past 30 years we have been privileged to show the handcrafted works of art of hundreds of primarily local artists.

Today, through the ups and downs of everyday life, we're still on Oak and Gregory and loving what we do. Although we began with 24 owner/members, we now represent over 50 artists as consignors in addition to the smaller number of owner/members who operate our little shop. We've adjusted to the times through a recession and the current pandemic by being creative and never giving up. And we're forever grateful to you, our customers for never giving up on us either!



We're particularly thrilled that our little block of shops is springing to life with some great places to visit such as Sierra Winter Jewelry, Shampoo by Salon LaRon, Yoga Soul, and KC Needlepoint and are looking forward to our new property owners from Made in KC notoriety who are moving into the corner space. It's our little slice of heaven. We look forward to seeing you. Jenny Isenberg


John Knell: Impact Driven Art

He skillfully weaves these complimentary disciplines into unique works of beauty, complexity, creativity and storytelling.
