ABOUT US – Our History in Black Art
October Gallery is Celebrating 29 Years in the African American Art / Black Art Industry and has operated a physical art gallery in Philadelphia, PA since 1985. We are one of the oldest Black Art Galleries in the nation. We offer Original Black Art, Prints, Posters and Gift Items. We deliver magic and romance to the art experience. October Gallery believes that art is for everyone. We like to compare ourselves to the Marriott Hotel chain. The Marriott is neither the Ritz Carlton nor Motel 6. It is a mid-range hotel. The company’s Web site states that the hotel offers packages of “fun filled days and wild nights that will fit any family’s budget without breaking the bank.” At the Marriott one can get an expensive or an inexpensive room depending on availability. October Gallery’s marketing philosophy is similar to that of the Marriott. We offer an art experience that will fit anyone’s budget, that does not have to break the bank. October Gallery’s average sale is between $200 and $600. The Gallery’s prices range from $5 to $25,000.
