Established in 1978.
In Enderle Center since 1978, Chemers Gallery is family owned. Formerly a school teacher, Rita Chemers’ love of art led her to open the Tustin gallery. As time went on the Gallery became known for their high standards in art and custom framing. Adding jewelry, contemporary crafts, in-home & corporate consultations, appraisals & restorations has made Chemers Gallery the premier gallery in the area. Karen Raab, Rita’s daughter, planned a career in science, but fell in love with the gallery. After stints working at the gallery and her own interests, Karen made her home at Chemers Gallery in 1988 & hasn’t looked back. While residential art remains strong, corporate art placement and framing has become an ever growing division of the business. Chemers Gallery strives to give every client a unique look consistent with their vision. A sample of corporate clients are City of Hope, Majestic Realty, Globecon Freight and Minyard Morris. Rita retired in 2005 but still handles appraisals.
