Working for local art and framing galleries in Cedar Rapids for many years, Suzy Mc-Grane Hop decided to take the leap and start her own art business. Finding inspiration from within, Suzy named her business, Gilder Pear Gallery after her own art work.

In 2011, Suzy attended a local SCORE workshop entitled "How to Start Your Own Business." Soon after, Gilded Pear Gallery was up and running.  Within the first year, Gilded Pear's business doubled then tripled the following year. Susan's gallery hosts events for artists and she provides art consultations and appraisals. As the gallery continues to grow, Suzy plans to hire more staff soon.
