“I witness to you that anything I have ever done of value or worth on this earth has been achieved through the kindness, mercy, and grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and my Heavenly Father. They have enabled me to magnify the talents they have given me. I am a witness of the Lord’s love; He blesses us and knows our needs. He answers our prayers as we adhere to His commandments and apply ourselves with honest effort; I have no other explanation for the blessings I have been given.” Scott Sumner
Havenlight is a new name in art for old friends. We’ve been in the business of helping people find inspiration through art since 1978. Today, we are a family of art service and publishing companies with the sole purpose of providing you access to the finest inspirational artists, experiences, and fine art products. We are artists, galleries, websites, printers, publishers and frame makers that can deliver you the entire palette of art, ranging from an inspiring set of Christmas Cards to the finest work of Original Art.
We first met as Frameworks or Repartee Gallery, when we were voted one of the Top Ten Frameshops in America. We learned customer service face to face on the gallery floor and custom framed our art knowing it would be displayed in the homes and businesses of our friends and families.
We started an art publishing company because we could not find the inspirational art our customers desired. Expanding into book, gift and other art-based goods was a simple evolution of serving the same desire. Today our reach may be a bit broader, but the quality and care of the custom framing offered though our websites and galleries is still created with the ideal that every customer is our neighbor.
You do not need to be an expert to select and enjoy a work of art, you simply need to choose a work that moves you. In doing so, it will illuminate the space in which it hangs and share that light of inspiration with those around you.
That’s what we do as well. We are Havenlight and our mission is art.
