Since 1980, Banks Fine Art has filled a niche in the Dallas art scene by offering a wide selection of fine Impressionist and traditional oil paintings. But after a decade in the heart of the Design District, the gallery lost its lease on Dragon Street. In 2010, owners Bob and Maloree Banks packed up their inventory and made the move to a spot on adjacent Slocum Street, a drive that might take all of a minute. So fear not, art lovers, because the gallery that has provided Dallas with impressive works on canvas for more than 30 years is still here. It’s just across the street.
Banks Fine Art has an array of American and European antique oil works from the 19th century, as well as pieces from selected living artists. Prices for some of the finer pieces can reach into the five-digit range, but newer works usually come with a more moderate price tag. The gallery guarantees the authenticity and value of every work it sells.
Banks Fine Art also offers certified appraisal services. Bob Banks is a member of the International Society of Appraisers as well as the Appraisers Association of America, and he has also done appraisal work on The Antiques Roadshow and Good Morning Texas.
