Brownrout Redesigns Website
According to Dean Brownrout, president of 20th Century Finest, it was the cold weather that provided the bite to redesign his website. However, he says that he also wanted it to be more technologically savvy.
His studio is based out of the Michael Donnelly Interior Design showroom at 1534 Hertel Avenue where Brownrout says people get to â€śsee art in a home spaceâ€ť. 20th Century Finest has been in Buffalo for four years. Brownrout says he does business via the Internet and to a select clientele. That being the case, it was time to update his antiquated site.
At 20thcenturyfinest.com, viewers can look at some of the offerings Brownrout has acquired, a list of the artists he is interested in buying, and a link to the art he may have currently listed on eBay. This new design will serve as an excellent partnership â€“ the same Brownrout shares with the interior design studio.
Brownrout explains, â€śWeâ€™ve done several shows at Michael Donnelly and that is our physical location: within his store.â€ť He continues that after a very successful showing last July, the relationship was expanded into a more permanent one.
Originally from Buffalo, Brownrout says, â€śIâ€™ve been living in NYC for twenty years and I came back to Buffalo not knowing what I was going to do.â€ť Brownrout says he rediscovered the rich history of Buffalo as well as the amazing local artwork and it quickly became a passion.
Hopefully with an updated website, Brownrout can continue to find success in Buffalo. He says the market has been good for regional and American art in a post 9/11 world with interest at an all-time high. With that and Buffaloâ€™s cold winter weather to spur him, he can only hope that his efforts will pay off.
