In 2007 Art and Antiques on Lake was established. It was a union between two long-term dealers in art and antiques, Ron Vander Molen and Kathy Shifs. As of July, 2013, Ron and Kathy will be working in their separate stores but are still working together on acquisitions, mutual projects and estate sales.
Both partners came from a long background as dealers in the fine art and antique trade. Together they bring a depth of knowledge and skills to assist you in furthering your collection of art, furnishing a home and in building a world of daily beauty for yourself, your family and extended circle of friends.
Please drop by either, or both, of our stores for a visit. We welcome browsers and love seeing our many clients dropping in for a dose of art and a friendly chat!
At Art and Antiques on Lake we have always made service to our clients our number one focus. We know that decisions on the purchase of fine art or a valuable antique piece for ones home requires thought and the backing of expert information.
We have long built a strong reputation in the field of estate sales. Our broad set of skills and experience allows us to properly price items for a mix of rapid sales and maximum profit. Managing and promoting an estate sale takes considerable expertise and time. We have held countless such sales and can assist you in making yours a success.
We also can assist with insurance appraisals, art valuation and will accept consignment pieces that fit with the general theme and standards of our gallery.
And of course, we are always looking to acquire new pieces-particularly vintage works of California artists as well as European and American works of art. Please give us a call or come by during shop hours if you have a piece you are interested in selling.
We have moved to new locations! Vander Molen Fine Art (and Antiques!) is now located @ 103 Santa Clara in Arcadia, California–just east of Santa Anita Ave and north of Huntington. We are located south of the 210 Fwy. There is plenty of parking and it’s easy to find (we are right by the big REI store).
Kathy Shifs has moved to a new location in East Pasadena @ 2546 E Colorado Blvd Pasadena, CA 91107. The store is on the south side of the street, about halfway between Sierra Madre Blvd and San Gabriel Blvd.
