For over 35 years, Kamp Gallery has been one of the Midwest’s largest and most diverse resources for original fine art. Our unique offerings are high quality, one of a kind, and eclectic: from classical European and American period pieces, to impressionist, post-impressionist, modern, contemporary and abstract. Our primary mission is to share the beauty and joy that fine art brings. We welcome your inquiry about visiting the gallery by appointment or arranging to see paintings in your home.
