"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
"Marsh Moonrise," original oil 24x26 by D. Eleinne Basa
"Canary and Goldfish," original acrylic/canvas 33.5x41 by Bill Giacalone
"Starting Point," original pastel 6x8 by Mike Beeman, PSA

Looking forward to your visit soon and wishing you to "Have an Artful Day!!"

"Quarry Road," 29x32 oil by Ken McIndoe

Welcome, Spring! It is the time for new beginnings and new deliveries to the gallery!  Please plan to visit us this season during our regular gallery days of Wednesday - Sunday, and also appointments are available most other convenient times.

 New to the Artful D are several oils on hand-stretched canvas by one of the original "en plein air" painters, Mr. Ken McIndoe. I have had the honor of representing Ken's extraordinary talent for 30 years, and marvel at the sureness of his hand. Ken has taught at the Art Students League in NYC for over 30 years, and his works are collected both nationally and internationally. Please contact me for further details regarding "Quarry Road" and other available works.

Looking forward to seeing you soon and as always, I wish you to Have an Artful Day!!!!
