Resident Artists Testimonies

“As an artist who has been with Giddens Gallery since it opened nearly 6 years ago, I encourage you to come in to see varied and highly creative works of art.  The Gallery is a lovely, inviting space on Main Street in Grapevine, under the winged unicorn.  The owners, Cherie and John Giddens are knowledgeable and so helpful.  The gallery is often manned by resident artists, also filled with info about his or her medium.  There are fun, free receptions monthly that feature additional work by a selected artist.  AND…we open up to Bingham wine tasting room next door, so you can have delicious wine with your art any time.  Get on our email list to be informed of upcoming events.  We really do have something for everyone.
My own work is abstracted, recognizable subjects in bright colors in acrylic and watercolor, ranging from smaller framed pieces to large canvases.”
Jill Danahey, Resident Artist
“John and Cherie Giddens are the wonderful gallery owners of Giddens Gallery of Fine Art. As a resident artist, I feel as if I belong in their rather diverse family of artists that they encourage, nurture and actively market. They are passionate about their artists and work diligently to represent them impartially. The collection of art shown in the gallery is varied in media and style. All the work is carefully curated to present the best local talent to its clients. Art is well displayed, and as an artist who is finicky about my work being handled carefully, I can honestly say that I have never worried that any of my work would ever be damaged while in their care. Payments are also prompt and handled with integrity. The gallery has the advantage of being in an excellent location, right on Main Street and next to the Convention Center in charming Grapevine. Both John and Cherie are active in the community, adding that essential flavor of connectedness that I value. As an artist who has been represented by many galleries in the past, I am thrilled to be a part of Giddens Gallery and heartily endorse it.” 
Sara Joseph, Resident Artist
“Cherie and John are super people who run the Gallery with honesty and professionalism. The location is very good being next to the Grapevine convention center. Sales have been steady and payment for art sold is always on time. My thanks to Cherie and John for all they’ve done for me.”
Jay Garrison, Resident Artist
“Giddens Fine Art Gallery is professional to its client/patron and the artist they represent. The location is prime for foot traffic. The space is light and airy so visitors are able to study each piece carefully.  Art is rotated regularly and never boring. Owners John and Cherie are friendly, knowledgeable about the works, artist and the “art world” today.  Artists are a family and wish well for each other to grow. It’s an atmosphere that makes other galleries envy. You must experience it for yourself.”

I just started my journey with the Gallery, but my experience has been very rewarding. My works are being displayed along with a variety of other artists who have different styles. That gives visitors a nice variety and makes the Gallery a great place for anyone. I also love working with Cherie and John — they are very helpful and supportive!
Darya Farral, Resident Artist
“My experience with Giddens Gallery has been most rewarding.  Cherie and John have been warm and hospitable “hosts”.  They are both very easy to work with and amenable to suggestions.  The other artists in the gallery are some of the greatest people I have been around.  They bring an impressive mix of styles and media to our clients.  From my experience it is truly a first class operation without being elitist.”
Jerome Weilmuenster, Resident Artist
“Giddens Gallery of Fine Art has widened my client base this past year.  With their interactive monthly gallery receptions, clients are invited to enjoy a wide variety of fine art in beautiful surroundings while noshing and sipping.
As an artist, Cherie Giddens is an enthusiastic proprietor for those new to collecting as well as the more experienced.
Both Cherie and John are involved with the city, art community and always reaching out to a broader audience both electronically and face-to-face.
This has been my favorite and most profitable gallery association thus far.”
Rosemary Riddle-Achelpohl, Resident Artist
“As a professional artist, I have found that Giddens Gallery has offered an excellent type of venue. The location is excellent, the gallery is beautiful, and the owners are gems.  I have the upmost confidence in their integrity and never worry about damage or loss of my paintings, delinquent or incorrect payment of sales.  Honesty, integrity and business principles reign at Giddens Gallery. It is these values that brought success to my art career and it is an honor to be associated with such an upstanding gallery with the same values.”
Ruth Francis, Resident Artist
“As a Resident Artist at Giddens Gallery, showing oil paintings on Main St, Grapevine, has been and continues to be an exciting experience.    It is an artist-helping-artist, entrepreneurial opportunity in which each artist offers their artworks for viewing and sale.   Owners, John and Cherie Giddens are very active in Grapevine events such as Grapefest, Gallery Walk, Main Street Days, GADA Art Walks and Artists Gallery Nights, events which bring many visitors into Giddens Gallery.  Greeting local neighbors as well as people from around the world is fun for me.”
Fran Chausse White, Resident Artist, Oil Paintings
“Giddens Gallery of Fine Art in Grapevine has it all: Realism, contemporary, abstract, sculpture and woodworks, metalworks, to name a few.  Located in charming downtown Grapevine on Main Street, this gem has it all.  
Owners, Cherie and John Giddens, are a charming couple.  While you are at the Galley you are likely to run into Cherie Giddens and/or one of the other 20 of us resident artists.  Either way you will find they have a broad knowledge of art and extensive knowledge of their medium.  All of the artists are passionate, seasoned and have been creating their Fine Art for many years.”
Nancy Conant, Resident Artist
“I am one of the 3D artists with work in Giddens Gallery of Fine Art and have been very pleased with their representation. Cheri and John are both very friendly and warm, greeting everyone as they enter and making them feel at ease. They are familiar with all the pieces and are capable and willing to talk about the work and the artists. They have been very active with an online presences and regularly send out email blasts about upcoming events. They are also active on social media and encourage all participating artists to help spread the word.
This gallery represents a variety of professional artists in varying disciplines. The diversity of art attracts a large range of customers and keeps them coming back  to see what new work is on display.
The gallery is located in a prime spot on Main St. in Grapevine. There is plenty of foot traffic and is very noticeable as you come into the shopping district. John and Cheri have integrity and are honest to the core. They are downright good people and it is an honor to be one of their stable of artists.
