Gallery Swarm Testimonials

Enrique Ortiz

A few weeks ago I purchased two paintings from Gallery Swarm  and when the pieces arrived I was happily surprised; the work was even more stunning in person then in the photos.  The pieces are fantastic and the prices were  terrific.   I would strongly suggest that  anyone looking to purchase good art work at reasonable prices have a  look at the Gallery Swarm website.

Gallery Swarm, and especially Sam Gillis, work extremely hard to make the GALLERY SWARM site successful.  Sam is easy to work with and very fair and honest. He has the client and artist at heart, and he aims to please.  I am so happy to have sold one of my paintings on his site in less than a week after it was posted.  I highly recommend Gallery Swarm to both art lovers, buyers, and artists.


Sam has always been a representative for the arts. He attention to the artists new and old is equal to his passion but his respect for his medium.

I have bought much of the art in my house from Sam.  The selection at Gallery Swarm is great and the pieces are always noticed by my guests.  It’s a pleasure doing business with Sam and I don’t think he could be more interested in satisfying his customers.

I now live in California and still shop from the website.


I enjoyed working with Gallery Swarm for my art needs. They have a wide range of art styles, mediums and techniques to choose from. I would recommend getting your art from them.

Owner, Chicago Art Leasing

I have had the opportunity to work with Sam and Gallery Swarm through Chicago Art Leasing and the quality, professionalism and creative have all been exceptional. Sam’s work has been very popular with a wide range of clients including designers and home stagers, and I could not be more pleased to have one of his works as part of my own private collection. I recommend his services and skills without reservation.

I am an artist who’s been working with the great Sam Gillis for many years now.  The man has a heart of gold and is one of the most honest gallery owners I have come across.  He is most definitely in it for the good of everyone involved!

I also feel that Sam gets the best, most creative talent in Chicago and other areas. His eye for art is unparalleled.  He has helped me and my art career greatly and if you haven’t, you MUST check out GALLERY SWARM AND IT’S AMAZINGNESS!!! 🙂


I found work with Sam as a very positive experience: he is very professional, very helpful and very friendly. The Swarm art events are amazing; not only in the number of people who came, but the great variety of people who were truly interested in the art.

I have purchased several pieces from Gallery Swarm ( Sam ) over the years and I’ve found some great pieces at amazing prices.  Sam is a very talented Artist and he’s very enterprising as well, he’s always trying to help others by bringing other talented people to the ” lime light ” via his website.  I truly LOVE my pieces I’ve purchased in the past and plan to buy more in the future.  I would strongly suggest anyone reading this take a look at the Gallery’s website because I know you’ll find something you’ll LOVE as well !!  Keep up the good work Sam and producing those wonderful pieces of Art !!!!

I think Sam is a great Artist!  I love his Landscapes.  He also does great portraits.  I love nature, i have a few of his Landscapes, I get compliments on them all the time.


I can attest to the huge amount of support that Gallery Swarm gives its artists. My brother Che was welcomed and encouraged from the beginning by the Gallery Swarm family, and it enriched his experience as an artist.
