FINE ART INVESTMENTS SINCE 1978
I have had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Graves for over a dozen years and can attest to his good character. He has enjoyed a
thriving fine arts business in this area and I have done business with him over the years and found him to be most reliable and
reputable. I can heartily recommend him to you without any reservation.

Graves International Art was originally founded as The Collector's Exchange by John Graves in 1978 in Jacksonville, Florida. Within
sixteen years the gallery grew to be the largest in North Florida, specializing in fine art from antique to modern. In 1994, Graves relocated
his gallery operations to historic Central Virginia where he stored away the modern and contemporary and focused on 18th - 19th Century
British and European works of art among a few contemporary artists. In 2011, he was joined in the business by his son, Alex. With the
recruitment of Alex, the gallery broadened back its inventory to Old Master to Contemporary with a focus on prints and multiples.
Subsequently, John and Alex Graves moved once more back to its roots to Saint Augustine, Florida in 2019 where it continues today. The
gallery boasts the finest art gallery collection in North Florida with an impressive range of original prints, paintings, and works on paper by
listed artists from around the world. American or European, antique or modern, we are interested in placing the finest quality of art with
Over 45 years in business with a focus on original printmaking, Graves International Art stocks Old Master to Post-War editions from
Albrecht Durer to Roy Lichtenstein. Graves International Art's inventory of artwork ranges more than 500 years of different styles, artists,
movements, mediums & more. All only original - hand-made by or under the supervision of the artist or their respective estate from three to
five figures, something for everyone.
My wife and I have known John Graves and his family for twenty five years. We are life long collectors of fine art and antiques. We
have found John's advice and expertise to be of the highest quality possible. Being a collector of objects of beauty himself, John's eye
for quality, value and uniqueness is exceptional. As a result, when in the market for a special gift or to add to our collection, we
always contact John!

With Graves International Art, John Graves and his two talented sons bring large city art expertise and supply to Central Virginia
and beyond. One would need a plane ticket to find its equal, but the knowledge, warm welcome and sincere personal attention is
rare and frankly in today’s world is difficult to find anywhere.
William Remington, Gordonsville, VA
You had the best art gallery in Jacksonville. After you moved to Virginia, the retail art market in Jacksonville took a dive and there
hasn't been as good a gallery as yours since. We're glad to see that you're doing so well.

I have done business with John for over thirty years and can attest to his knowledge and integrity. I have purchased original works
by Peter Max and Mark King, among others from his gallery. A connoisseur of art, I continue to build my fine art collection relying
on his expert advice.

There is nothing more wonderful than being in front of a amazingly crafted work of art; be it a sculpture, painting, a print or in
deed a reproduction of one of the masters. Whether you are looking to purchase a new work of art to hang or simply enjoy looking
at art of all types, Graves International Art is one of the best to do so. I first met John Graves in his gallery in Taunton England over
30 years ago where he was a dealer in fine arts. After having other gallery's over the years John now has a new gallery here in
Charlottesville where he features unique works of art and hosts special events and exhibitions; where you can meet the artist and
learn the history behind each piece of art. If you're interested in fine art, collecting fine art, or just interested in viewing and enjoy,
it's worth visiting John Graves or his son Jack and making use of their vast wealth of knowledge regarding art. As a collector and
lover of all things beautiful that have been created over the years by talented men and women I recommend visiting Graves

house with only the finest of art works. I am proud to call him my friend and art counselor.

Spending an afternoon at Graves International Art is better than having a graduate degree in fine art.
Bill & Liz Ballou, Williamsburg, VA
The art here should be in a museum with an entrance fee. You wouldn't know it unless you walked inside. The owners are doing a
very good job making it an awesome place to visit.
