Award Winning Gallery in Dallas

With pleasure and pride we announce that Kittrell-Riffkind Glass Gallery has been awarded two prestigious awards for excellence recently. Nourot Glass has been doing business with this Addison, Texas fine craft gallery since 1999.
The Niche Top Retailer Award for Best Art Glass Gallery was given at the Summer Buyer's Market in Baltimore, Maryland this last July. Barbara Kittrell accepted on behalf of the gallery. Thanks to all those who voted for our friends.

Locally, the Kittrel-Riffkind Gallery was again named Best Art Gallery in a reader's choice poll at Addison, Magazine of the North Dallas Corridor. They have received this designation for the last 3 years running.
With the state of the art way they do business, the great openings they have, the wonderful staff and the great web presence it is not surprising. This Dallas gallery is well deserving of these accolades. Our best to Michael and Barbara at the gallery and David in the classroom (they even do classes). Thanks for all your hard work.

The Kittrell-Riffkind Glass Art Gallery has works by a wide variety of glass artists from large one of a kind piece sculptures to delicate glass bead jewelry and flame worked pieces. Their business model never sleeps. Everything they are showing is carefully photographed and put up on their website so out of town people can shop at a distance. People have fun and feel welcomed when they visit, we know because Nourot Glass had a show there a couple of years ago. Very important, too is they give equal attention to displaying and selling each kind of work. The jewelry cases are custom made and each drawer showcases a big selection of like style work. This makes shopping easier for people. In the gallery areas are designated for new works, works in an current exhibition and pieces that get rotated from "the front" to the stock room. This makes the look of the gallery constantly changing. Also the web keeps all items up and showing at their best for a second look when you get home.
People sometimes get anxious about picking art for a certain space or even their own home, and need that extra validation to trust their instincts. The fun staff at Kittrel-Riffkind help people discover what will work for them. It's a win-win situation all around and we couldn't be happier that they have been rewarded for a job well done.
