Meet Susie and Jeffery Wilber, Top Dogs
Susie earned a B.A. in Art History from Smith College and an M.S. in Architectural Design from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. She worked in the architectural field and as an architectural illustrator in New England prior to relocating to Florida where she became a licensed Interior Designer. She has completed numerous commercial and residential projects, several having received national publication.
She and her husband, Jeff, founded The Laughing Dog Gallery in Vero Beach, FL in 2000. The gallery has consistently won awards for its collection of fine American Craft, and was named the “Niche Top Retailer of American Craft” in 2007. She has been selected to jury national craft competitions, including the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show and the Niche Awards.
Jeffery Wilber is a building contractor specializing in luxury residential construction. He is licensed in both Florida and North Carolina and has over 25 years experience transforming mere residences into works of art. His construction company, Studio Two of South Florida, Inc., offers complete design/build services as well as art installation and coordination for gallery clients.
When great ideas come to the minds of gifted artists, wonderful things can happen. At The Laughing Dog Gallery, we celebrate creativity in many ways: by showcasing works by both emerging and acclaimed artists, by offering an eclectic selection of American made craft that can be enjoyed by beginning collectors or experienced art hounds, and by providing our customers with true expertise and outrageously good service. Unleash your own creativity and explore our site. We think you’ll enjoy the journey.
A Pedigreed Approach
The true indicator of The Laughing Dog Gallery’s pedigree is our staff. We’re more than retailers; we’re artists as well. Our bilingual team includes a graduate gemologist, a glass enthusiast and practicing ceramicist, and a Florida-licensed, NCIDQ-certified interior designer. Our clients continually seek new and exciting works to enrich their collections. We get to know you and your individual tastes, then use our expertise to best assist you.
Service with Style
We believe that special art deserves special handling. That’s why we have a licensed contractor on staff to deliver and install art and glass work for in-town customers. Sending a gift out of town? We’ll pack and ship it. Our gallery offers wedding and gift registries, wish lists, a 15% birthday club discount, complimentary gift-wrapping, and sales and events updates through special mailings.
