"Art is as essential as air. We need both to breathe," says Averlyn of CanvasPaperandStone.com.
Welcome to CanvasPaperandStone.com, the successor to Genesis Art Line, an art gallery launched on the web more than 12 years ago. At the time, genesisartline.com was the largest online art gallery catering to the African American art market, created when the Internet was called the World Wide Web, when what it really meant was the world wide wait because you were always waiting for your graphics to download. With a few hundred works of art by and for African Americans, it foretold the coming of the visual arts online. With genesisartline.com as the launchpad, Archer was able to launch a retail gallery in Harlem, American Vision 145, which had a successful two year run.
In the real world, Canvas Paper and Stone Gallery is a contemporary fine art venue located in Harlem, NY, which focuses on emerging and mid-career artists in all media. Among its objectives is informing and educating its client base, buyers and collectors, about contemporary visual art.
We are back online with CanvasPaperandStone.com, offering a complete solution to your art needs. Your framed art will arrive on your doorstep... 1- 2- 3- 4!
Then just wait for delivery to hang on your wall.
