I was in desperate search of a specific painting for 2 years. Roy contacted the artist herself numerous times. Because of his outreach and incredibly diligent work, I now have the painting I have always wanted. He was kind, considerate, clear, and determined; there are no better qualities in a business owner! This gallery and Roy's work is outstanding. I am so grateful to have found him!

We have visited Saper Galleries at least once a month during the First Sunday Gallery Walk. The first thing you notice is the welcoming greeting of owner Roy Saper. Then you look around and observe the amazing amount and diversity of the artwork. Original oils, watercolor, photography of every kind. Ceramics adorn the walls, unique wooden boxes and containers hand crafted from cocobola by artists in Costa Rica and an entire wall of Dr. Seuss artwork. I love this place, and urge art lovers to make a visit to this excellent gallery.

Saper Galleries does a wonderful job in framing every piece I have taken to them. While somewhat pricey their work is excellent. If you want to show off an item I would highly recommend you take it to them.

In their framing, they keep up standards we probably all wish every other business would. Plus, the place is a haven of sorts, I always feel better after few minutes in there.

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Saper Galleries. I took in an heirloom mirror to be repaired. It had a bad crack and it was slipping through the ornate frame. I checked out a variety of places, but Saper Galleries was clearly in a class by itself. Roy Saper assisted me and couldn't have been friendlier or nicer, as was his staff. Roy really took the time to carefully examine the mirror and let me know in detail how it could be fixed. The repair to the crack was expertly made, the mirror repositioned, and better fasteners attached to the frame with a new strong wire, and a brand new backing with bumpers. Roy even offered to give me proper hooks to hang it. It was repaired in a reasonable amount of time for a reasonable price that I could afford. I was emailed when it was ready and received a lovely thank you email after I picked it up. I was also impressed with the store. It is well designed and filled with lovely examples of their framing. Easy to get to and easy parking in the back, too. I will be sure to turn to Saper Galleries whenever I have a framing need or want to buy a special gift. Thank you to a great team!

At Roy Saper's art gallery, one will find a diverse selection of art from around the world in a variety of media, including photography, mixed media, glass, painting, sculpture, contemporary and traditional. Filled with light, items are well displayed and whether one is buying or just considering, it is certainly worth an art lover's time. (Excellent for gift shopping for someone special.)

A few decades into it and Roy Saper still curates a magnificent gallery. There is a wide range of styles and prices for original art. One need not forego a kitchen renovation or a vacation to have original art in your home. The commercial area of the city of East Lansing continues to change - in part for the good and in part continued decline. Saper gallery is a jewel of constancy. We recently made another purchase there - an unexpected delight that enlivens our home. Even to stop, browse and make no purchase, it is one of the best places in Mid-Michigan.

What an extraordinary collection of art -- ranging from the very affordable to museum quality. Wow! If, like me, you head to MSU's Broad and walk thru in 15 head-shaking minutes, walk over to Saper Galleries and rejoice that your afternoon was not wasted! I enjoyed the full spectrum: fine art, modern art, household art, craft ... good quality pieces that made me think ... and others that made me smile. Took home four lovely keepsakes of my visit to East Lansing.

When I visit small towns in resort areas, I'm apt to venture into an art gallery or two. With Saper, I don't have to travel far. It's on the street where I live. I've always enjoyed walking in to see what's new, sometimes it's a special show. I should go more often. I've had artworks framed there and had one restored. The staff has knowledge and capability. Saper Galleries is a true gem in this college town. And looking is free.
