Looking forward to this Spring, 2017 more than I ever remember before. I wonder if it is the freshness of Spring rain, young greens and buds, and the promise of new growth and new beginnings.

We pride ourselves with offering some of the strongest talent in the nation, and have acquired several artists that enjoy international acclaim. The gallery is committed to assisting the seasoned collector and we welcome the beginning collector to our pocket gallery with the stunning walls of gold. Appointments are available to explore your art interests and make your first art selection an exciting and informed one.

Make Spring, 2017 the Season of New Beginnings for yourself and for the Arts! Make an "art date" to a museum or gallery. Support live theater and dance. Make it a point to hear live music, and see if you can incorporate artists into your next event.

We look forward to your visit at 142 Farnsworth Avenue in Bordentown City, New Jersey! and as always, I wish you a very Artful day!!!

Autumn, 2016 at the Artful Deposit Gallery.....

Welcome, to the Autumn season of 2016! Following a Summer of intense heat, I am very much looking forward to cool days and crisp breezes, and the changing palette of the painters represented at the Artful D.

The gallery begins a slow evolve of longer evening hours through the Fall as the Holiday Season approaches. Our standard gallery hours are: Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday 1-6pm;  Friday 2-8pm,  Sunday 1-5pm, and by appointment. It is always a good idea to give me a call to see if I am staying later, especially on a weekend evening. The heavier restaurant traffic in Bordentown City usually supports more walk-in visitors and art lovers to the gallery and to other late-night shops as well.

We continue to marvel at the talent in our tiny golden walled gallery, as the artists represented here thrill us with continuing accolades, awards, publications, and notoriety. Wonderful, original fine art truly for the seasoned collector as well as one beginning. We hope you will visit us this Autumn at the Artful D!

Be well and always Artful!

"Eclectic Offerings at the Artful Deposit Gallery...."

One of the greatest compliments we receive from loyal patrons and newcomers alike, is that there is a wide range of high quality, original fine art offered from our permanent stable of artists. Since the beginning of Artful Deposit Galleries in 1986, we have continued to expand and define our representation of artists, and now boast one of the strongest group of nationally and internationally presented artists in a wide region.

The gallery has weekly operating hours at our primary location at 142 Farnsworth Avenue in Historic Bordentown City, NJ, and appointments are available at both the Artful D and at our second permanent exhibition space at the Inn at Fernbrook Farms in Chesterfield, NJ.

Beginning your fine art collection can be a bit daunting, and we promise to assist the new collector as much as possible with exploring their tastes and making their initial purchases about the joy of collecting art, not financial stress or burden.  We welcome the seasoned collector as well, and as always are so grateful to our loyal patrons who have trusted the Artful D with assisting in the building of their fine art collections.

The above works are from the following gallery artists:

"The Jesters," original acrylic/canvas 30x36 by Thomas Kelly
