Because Life is Better at the Lake

145-Year-Old Map Company Highlights Cedar Creek Lake

by




Gallup Map Company, a multigenerational map maker that has occupied Kansas City for well over a century, has made a modern transition into home decor and has turned their attention to Cedar Creek Lake. They have been renamed as “Gallup Map + Art Company” in recent years, and are focused on creating legacy-quality artwork for homes based on their immense archive of decades upon decades of maps.

An areas of focus at Gallup in recent years has been on lake map artwork, and one of their most recent releases of canvas artwork is Cedar Creek Lake. As they continue to expand their vast portfolio of maps across the South and Midwest, Cedar Creek Lake joins the ranks of Lake Texoma, as well as Lake Eufaula and Grand Lake in Oklahoma. The Cedar Creek Lake maps feature the lake and surrounding areas, along with the name of the lake, a little bit of history, and the unique Gallup embellished compass rose.

Cartography is the study, practice and art of map making, and Gallup has been an expert in American cartography for generations. Once heralded as the local street atlas of choice in Kansas City, the latest generation has taken Gallup in a fresh new direction. With the 21st century innovations in digital mapping, GPS and smart phone technology, they have moved into creating unique conversation pieces for the home in the form of quality canvas map art.

“We take pride in creating the highest quality maps, which is reflected in the materials used to make your map” says owner Patrick. He goes on to say that their maps “look and feel like art, and will be enjoyed by your family for generations.”

Lake maps make for a special kind of artwork. They really are interactive art that you can show off to guests, friends and family as you tell stories of past fun on the lake. Every lake tells a story, and now there is a beautiful way to make those stories a centerpiece in your home or vacation house.

Being printed on heavy 20 mil canvas with 100-year lightfast inks gives them the longevity to be an heirloom piece. Since they are printed on canvas, there are several mounting options such as gallery wrapping the canvas for a clean presentation, hang on wood and twine for a rustic look, or frame for a more classic and refined finish. With several size and color options, you can pick the perfect map for your look, be it rustic sepia, subtle and modern gray, or a more edgy option in black.
