Esther Barend

Esther Barend was born in an artistic family in the Netherlands. After finishing her studies, she established herself as a jewelry designer in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. Several years later she started classes at the Academy of Fine Arts, and after 3 years she felt she had to go her own way. She started experimenting day in & day out, and has developed her own distinctive style over the years. After living in Paris, Amsterdam, & Antwerp, she now lives & works lives in the Valencia region of Spain. Esther’s paintings can be found in private and corporate collections in the USA, Europe, United Arab Emirates, Japan, & Australia. Esther has an unstoppable need to paint. Inevitably, she examines her complete life from her personal perspective as an artist. Her figurative works are open-minded reflections of perfect imperfections. Her abstract pieces are mostly autobiographical in nature, inspired by her rich & complex inner world, her current emotions, and contemporary events.

Great Art, Great People to Deal With. I've been doing business with this gallery for fifteen years and have purchased 4 major works of art from them. I love the artists they represent, the quality of work they sell, and the stable employee base that represents the artists. I once had a problem with a frame that showed cracking after two years. They had the art picked up and delivered by professional packagers/transporters after replacing the frame with an even better one. Their level of salesmanship and follow-up customer care is outstanding. I never come to town without stopping in to enjoy some of the best contemporary art available in the French Quarter.

They feature several amazing artists whose work are exclusive to this network of galleries in the USA, including Denis Lebecq and Marc Clauzade. I recommend speaking with Bilal McGlothan or the owner, Scott Novick. Both are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. They also have the most beautiful custom frames you will find anywhere.

Beautiful and simple art gallery showcasing the work of immensely talented people.

Roland Pinault

What an awesome little gallery, with unique, amazing art and attentive service if you want to learn more about any of their artists. We purchased art by a french artist named Lebecq that is nothing short of spectacular.

Sometimes we just drive in from Baton Rouge to see the Lebecq red painting  – one day maybe one day.

I found this place after a Saint’s game when my friends ditched me, and the Gallery Director was so awesome I bought a DeVon painting and I love it still to this day. Bilal is amazing.
