The west gallery was added in 1998 and dedicated to Adam and Jay Saper, the children of gallery founder Roy C. Saper and his wife, Nell Kuhnmuench.  The 2,010 square foot gallery is illuminated by a 48-foot long barrel-vault shape center skylight and three additional dome-shaped skylights up to 8-feet in diameter.  At the north end of the gallery are 24 sliding wall panels displaying the art of Dutch painter Tunis Ponsen.

The frame assembly room is adjacent to the frame selection area so you can actually watch the matting, hinging, and framing assembly process by Saper Galleries professionals.  Your art is stored in sleeves behind doors to provide for security and protection.  This efficiently designed room stores all the mat boards, glass, and supplies needed to hand complete every frame order to perfection.
