Commissioning art with Ahlers Designs is a journey that brings your goals to life and results in extraordinary art—the kind that is loved and cherished for years to come.

Gail Ahlers designs every commission, ensuring client ease and satisfaction from the very beginning of the process. She personally meets with clients to discover their motivations for the project (such as the significance of the commission) as well as their ideas—both initial and advanced—about aesthetics.

As a business owner, Gail Ahlers understands timelines and budgets, and Ahlers Designs prioritizes supporting clients’ logistics and needs throughout the entire process. As Carolyn Bergen, CFO of New Directions puts it, “Gail was an incredibly patient partner as our company journeyed down the path to creating a gift for our clients. Her expertise in drawing out our likes and dislikes, along with her insightful suggestions, combined to create the perfect representation of what our firm is all about.”
Once a commission has been confirmed, Gail presents initial sketches and other visual materials for clients’ review. With over 25 years of expertise in sculpture and working with precious metals, wood, and a variety of other materials, Gail knows how to translate dreams into a unique artistic reality. Her creativity, attention to detail, and use of high-caliber materials culminate in a final work of art that honors the receiver and distinguishes the giver. It marks an unforgettable moment in time.
