Galaxy of Graphics, Ltd. was created as a sister company to the Arthur A. Kaplan Company. The Arthur A. Kaplan Company, in existence since 1956, continues to be a pillar in the picture publishing industry as one of its most recognized names and respected entities. In 1983, the directors at the Arthur A. Kaplan Company recognized their customers' need for more sophisticated, upscale artwork, and developed Galaxy of Graphics, Ltd. as an alternative to meet this demand. With this backdrop, Galaxy has successfully evolved into one of the leaders of the fine art world by continually publishing timeless, classic "over the sofa" images. Galaxy images are denoted with a GOG code in the catalog.
The Shooting Star Collection is a division of Galaxy that was created in 1995. Again, the Galaxy sales and design department responded to their customers' desire for a more modern, trend-conscious line and this demand was the impetus behind The Shooting Star Collection. As you will see in the catalog, The Shooting Star Collection has been able to carve its own niche in the marketplace by publishing images in line with the most current subjects, patterns and colors in contemporary culture. Shooting Star images are denoted with a TC code in the catalog.
Galaxy of Graphics, Ltd., like its sister company the Arthur A. Kaplan Company, is a family-run business. Galaxy attributes its success and constant growth to being a byproduct of placing such a high value on its relationships with its customers, its employees and its artists. Galaxy is proud to have developed a strong base network of customers and artists worldwide. Galaxy and Shooting Star images are sold only to the trade.
