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.
