Architectural Art is a website designed to promote the
preservation and appreciation of intact collections of old
architectural drawings, etchings, and engravings, and made available
to an appreciating public. The collections are from the
archives of Hugh E. White, Sr., architect (1898-1939) and
preserved by subsequent family generations. Vintage
Architectural Art is a specialized repository and distributor of
museum quality reproductions and originals of these significant and
artistic works through best practice preservation techniques
and personal marketing.
These collections are maintained by Hugh Ed. White and Hugh E. White, Jr., president of Carolina Surveyors. The skill, knowledge and discipline required to produce the original works represented in these collections, in a past era, will never again be achieved in our technical age.
The prints are produced and distributed by Kugler's Studio, Ken Beebe, owner. The studio is located in uptown Charlotte, NC in the beautiful, historic Latta Arcade building. The studio also houses a vast collection of historical photographic art. Many of the images presented on this website are available for viewing at the studio.
