Fine Art & Antiques
Allan and Shauna Pitchko’s passion for collecting art, developed long before opening their gallery in Rancho Mirage, it start ed in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada in 1988, where they owned “Antiques Alberta”. Loving the California desert in winter, they bought a home in Rancho Mirage and decided to open a Gallery on El Pas eo. Deeply involved in collecting art and antiques, they found they needed more
room. When a beautiful piece of commercial property with 12,000 sq. ft. building became available in Rancho Mirage, on Highway 111, they purchased it in 2011 and opened for business in January 2012. On entering this elegant showroom you will find high-end antiques, fine art and objects d’art, 18th, 19th and 20th century European and American paintings and bronzes. There is a variety of accessories and historical finds from Georgian and Victorian furniture to sterling silver, estate jewelry, art glass and fine china. Oriental antiques includ ing unique porcelain and bronze pieces can be found here. For a particularly enjoyable art experience, we highly rec ommend a visit to Allan Pitchko Galleries, 70-125 Highway 111, Rancho Mirage. (760) 324-9595. APitchkoArtGalleries.com.
