Tis the Season at the Artful D!

Welcome to Holiday Season, 2016! We hope you have put original fine art on your Wish List and you plan to visit our pocket gallery on Farnsworth Avenue in Historic Bordentown City! The gallery offers continual representation to some of the finest contemporary artists enjoying national, international, and regional acclaim. It is always a pleasure to see our seasoned collectors and loyal patrons, and equally thrilling to assist the beginning collector with their first original fine art purchase.

Looking forward to your visit, and as always, wishing you an 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
"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!!!!
