Celebrate Spring, celebrate beauty and celebrate Art. Life is short, so one better enjoy it!
David Miller has been painting his whole life, and nationally published for more than 30 years. Probably most famous for his “Windows to Paradise Pieces” his credentials in Marine and Environmental Art are second to none.
Take a look at his Surfboard Art, ready to hang and in both horizontal and vertical formats, and his new Window Pieces. There is a lot to see and to enjoy. In celebration of many positive things, we are offering free fully insured shipping for the month of April. And David will personalize any piece with a remarque! Email or call the Gallery with any questions.

Brian Arthur has been a busy Sculptor, and has just released some new Pelican pieces. If he or we do not have them “on hand” then they are cast to order, and we are quoting 3-4 weeks for them to be made.
Please note this enables one to choose their specific patina (or coloration)! In Pelicans, your choices are: Mahogany, Silver Gray, Matte White, and Onyx. Which one do you like? Free shipping via Coupon Code “Pelicans” through February 20th.
Contact the Gallery by email, via the website or by telephone. We would be happy to hear from you!

We have worked with Kitty Cantrell and her National Publisher, Starlite Originals of Los Angeles, CA since we opened in May of 1994. Most but not all of her offerings are “mixed media sculptures”, that is, bronze and pewter (and other metals) accented with hot torched patinas and encased in Lucite. Lucite is a perfect representation of water and the ocean! And because Lucite seems to absorb light, these pieces are easy to enjoy as Artwork in any setting!
The current promotion is Internet Best Pricing, combined with Free Shipping. Such a deal! Click, email or call with any questions or comments. Thank you.

The current promotion is Nic McGuire’s gorgeous new glass Wall Butterflies. There are three new designs, “Orange Monarch”, “Yellow Monarch” and “Blue Morpho”, and they are offered in two sizes. Aside from a seriously discounted price, we are offering Free Continental US Shipping! Such a deal!
The “Orange Monarch” design came from a special Commission of 200 pieces, an order from the Comcast Corporation. These are beautiful creations in glass, made here in San Diego, and sure to please. Some persons create a display using multiple butterflies, but they are perfect as a stand alone accent. Act now to receive them in time for the Holidays. How can we help? Internet, email, or telephone.

The “Escaping Starfish” are 100% glass, by John Gibbons. These gorgeous objects have two of their five legs hanging at a right angle, and therefore seem to be creeping away! Genius.
These signed pieces are our current promotion, and are offered via FREE Shipping if one gets at least two starfish. Shipping is refunded via a Gallery Check.
If it helps, holiday presents can be gift wrapped for free and sent to arrive a week before December 25th. Let us know how we can help you.

Mr. Satava’s glass Jellyfish have been a mainstay of the Gallery’s offerings since 2000. We offer them at the same price as does the Artist, meaning, there is no additional Gallery mark-up!
The current promotion are these Jellyfish, especially the new Seascapes. These Seascapes have a flat back, which enables a blue, under the ocean, type appearance: hence Seascape. Beautiful!
For maximum effect and enjoyment, these pieces should be lit. While we have suggestions for inexpensive “from above” lighting, we are offering a Free LED Lightbase (“from below” lighting) with any purchase. Separately, for larger pieces ($1000 and over) we offer a rebate, sent with the piece itself, of 15%! Through October 15th. Treat yourself. Life is short.

Art for Wildlife Galleries was the first Gallery to exhibit the work of Grant Pecoff when he had finished his academic/art school and training. He had not yet developed his unique and recognizable style, but it was obvious he was talented, disciplined, and determined, and laser focused upon his art and his career.
We reconnected some 20 years later in 2018, looked at the body of work, and knew: at least to some degree, we had “missed the boat”!
We have now posted a number of his new pieces on our site, including his interesting take on “water”. But there are many others to see and enjoy. And we are offering free shipping on any Pecoff piece through September 30th, in the form of a Gallery check. Take a look!

Loet Vanderveen died at the age of 94 in 2015. He sculpted until the very end. He wasn’t doing it for money. It was his gift to humanity.
Brian Arthur, well past what we might call retirement age, recently stated: “I have more ideas now than I have ever had!” This pandemic has changed a lot of things, but not his desire or his need to create and express beauty and truth. The new normal has him working with a small family owned Foundry on the Central California coast. These first few new Herons, available now in two distinct patinas, are the subject of our first “new normal” mass email, along with his new, mixed media Polar Bear piece.
Special Note: he has just finished 7 new, smaller Owls retailing at $600 or less. See them now at www.brianarthur.com/owls.html.
Life does go on!

The Gallery is physically closed, as of 7/31/2020. Inventory is boxed and stored in an Industrial setting; much cheaper rent!! The past two weeks has been spent re organizing and re juvenating, and planning the path ahead. What is the new normal, and how does it relate to Art for Wildlife Galleries, and Coronado, CA?
This remains to be seen. But life does go on, and we are gathering new pieces from Brian Arthur and others, and we will announce them in the near future. Email or call with any questions or comments. Thank you, Art for Wildlife Galleries.

Special Note: The Gallery will shut on July 31st, but is slated to re open in January, 2021, in a smaller, more efficient location. We are now in the midst of a “Gallery Closing/Downsizing Sale” which ends on Sunday, July 12th. The prices shown, on line and in person, are not “sustainable” to either a Gallery, or to an Artist. But they are a sign of the times, and may mark the end of an era. There is a new normal upon us, and anyone so inclined, should take advantage of these incredible prices: a gift for later in a closet, a surprise gesture to a loved one, a legacy gift to a son or daughter, a bonus to employee or business associate, an Anniversary present that says it all.
There are many reasons to give! We look forward to hearing from you, and sincerely thank you all for the support over the years; without you and your interests, we had (nor have) nothing! Thank you.
July 6, 2020
The Big Event, the “Gallery Closing/Downsizing Sale” is this weekend: July 10-12, Noon to 5pm. But you do not have to come into the Gallery to take advantage! And you do not have to wait for July 10th!
Shop now, or call. We are open this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday Noon to 5pm! Thank you. Art for Wildlife Galleries.

We are in the final stages of a great 26 year run, and indeed will have the “Gallery Closing/Downsizing Sale” on July 10, 11, and 12th from 12:00 Noon until 5 PM. We will close on July 31st, and are slated to re-open in a smaller, more efficient location in January. But for now, most all items are seriously discounted, on line and in person. Take a look around, and treat yourself! Call or email with questions. Thank you. Art for Wildlife Galleries

We are winding down, and offer today a very special wood carving by J. Chester Armstrong. This Artist is Internationally Known, and his work is highly coveted. We are selling this for a downsizing customer. Free Shipping, or No Sales Tax, or we are encouraging offers! Email or Call: 619-435-4342.

We approach the weekend with lots of items reduced in person and on-line. We are downsizing, and will be moving. But if you need an incentive to have something shipped, we offer the following: free shipping on Anna Sweet’s original pieces (from $130 and up) on Richard Satava’s Glass Jellyfish (from $250 and up) and Brian Arthur bronzes (from $275 and up). A Gallery check for shipping will be sent with the piece itself. Enjoy and be safe. We will get through this. Let us know if we can be of any service.

A new normal is upon us, and we are going to celebrate with a Richard Satava glass Jellyfish extravaganza. Life does go on, and life is for the living. Seize (and enjoy) the day. And be safe!

We are open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, Noon to 5pm, or, by Appointment. We have put up on-line the beautiful and reasonably priced Original “ocean-y” pieces by Anna Sweet, $130 and up!

We have been working getting our inventory up and fully shop-able on-line. We are one of the largest Richard Satava Dealers in the world, and we have a serious display of his glass Jellyfish and Vases. We also have the glass Butterflies and feathers of San Diego’s own Nic McGuire up and shop-able on-line. Take a look. Lastly, we are preparing a Big Sale in about a month, where our on hand Inventory will be heavily discounted to help us move to a smaller location. If there is something that you are interested in, contact us now. Thank you.
May 12, 2020
As we prepare a special offer from glass Artist John Gibbons, and specifically about his Starfish Clusters, we note that the Internet Merchant, Artful Home, offers these same sized pieces at 33% higher than our normal retail ($1800 versus $1195)!! Ours are on hand and on-line, and shop-able, and a Last Chance at these prices.

Mothers Day, 2020.
Some signs of life outside. Coronado recently opened its golf course, and with modified modus operandi has lots of business. The beaches are open for swimming and surfing and walking, but not sitting down.
I do see the Kayak and Bike Rental Store has opened, and with their new protocol, is sending out some equipment. The staff has masks, but many of the renters do not. Activity, but not any volume.
We are safely inside and working with customers from all over, but mostly we are focused on getting our specific inventory up, and shop-able, on our website. We are making a lot of progress. Richard Satava and his Jellyfish are up, and a Miscellaneous Section has a number of interesting items, up and shop-able.
As we ponder the immediate future, we will continue with “Open by Appointment Only, and On-Line”.
Life goes on. Stay safe.

The Gallery was started in May of 1994. There was a most important partner, but his interests evolved, and it soon became owned and operated by one owner.
Coming up to our 26th Anniversary, we are in a mandatory Covid-19 shutdown/lockdown, and we are all staying at home. Airlines are operating at less than 10% of capacity, and all the Hotels, including the Grand Dame herself, the famed Hotel Del, are closed. Not a soul around.
We wear face masks when we go out! And we practice social distancing. Will we ever be the same?
Back in 2005, a major October brush fire east of San Diego sent so much ash and particulates into the air, the City of San Diego told it’s employees to stay home for a day or two. We saw a few face masks then. And now, we are advised to wear them at all times!
The Gallery is open, but the doors are locked, and any and all business is done via the Internet, and over the phone. It is still beautiful, and the music is pleasing, but no one can go out unless on essential business or taking solitary exercise, and we are not “open” per se. But our Landlord, and their Landlord, want their rightful due…
It is a perfect time to downsize, and we will within a few months.
In the meantime, we are getting most of our Inventory posted and shoppable online. We are adding pieces daily. The images are not professional done, but they are getting up! Take a look around.
Life is short. Treat yourself to something that makes you feel good. Give something to someone you love. There will not be a better time.
It is really very simple!
Call or email, and tell us what you want. We will offer Quarantine Incentive Pricing!
