The Artful Deposit Gallery is Moving!!!




We have a ton of very exciting news to share with all of our Artful Deposit Gallery followers and friends!
We are moving our Bordentown City location to 142 Farnsworth Avenue, a few doors away from Toscano's Ristorante!  Please feel free to call for appointments during our transition in the month of July, and we hope to see you in the beginning of August for the "soft opening" of our new gallery salon.  I will also be in the gallery most Wednesday afternoons, Friday evenings, and will post any weekend hours as the month continues.  It's easiest to give the gallery a call at 609 298 6970, or either email me at artfuldeposit@gmail.com or send a Facebook message on the Artful Deposit page.

Although we have enjoyed our wonderful location at 201 Farnsworth for 18 years, it is time to move to a more "right-sized" space that will enable us to sponsor larger art events at different venues throughout a calendar year. I'm looking forward to many Artist/Collector parties, Galas, group and solo exhibitions, etc., with the high quality and caliber fine art that the Artful Deposit stable is known for.

We also want to give a big welcome to Perry at Bordentown Jewelers who we will be handing the keys to at 201, and looking forward to his opening scheduled for early September........

We have a lot of work to do, but it will be worth it for sure!  All best and looking forward to seeing you soon!  As always,  Have an Artful Day!!

"By the Creek," by Anna Wainright


                       By the Creek, 16x20 pastel/paper by AJ Wainright

Another wonderful delivery of pastels by Anna Wainright PSA to the Artful Deposit Gallery. Anna has been represented with us for nearly four years and quickly developed a group of collectors who are mesmerized with the light and color in her work......Her signature style and skill were immediately noticed.

One of our foremost "Gallery Goals" is to have the highest quality original fine art in a wide range of pricing. Keeping this goal in mind, there are currently ten Wainright pastels available beginning with an 8x10 all the way up to 24x36. All works are in custom frames and are under special glass for pastels.

Please visit us this weekend and make this year the year you give the Gift of Fine Art. For as P. Rosenthal
says,  "Part of the Art of Living , is Living With Art."16x20

"Along the Way, Chesterfield, NJ"



Have you ever met someone and felt that you have known them for your whole life? Such was the case when I met the incredibly talented artist, Marge Levine. Marge walked into my first gallery location nearly 27 years ago, and our friendship and artist-gallery relationship began. It has and continues to be an honor to represent Marge and also to bear witness to her personal journey as an artist.

Marge Levine is one of the three pastel painters represented at the Artful Deposit Gallery. She, along with Anna Wainright and Richard McKinley are in the Pastel Society of America, and although they work in the same medium, they all enjoy their own signature style. Marge recently delivered five new works including the above landscape inspired by her visit through Chesterfield, New Jersey.

Marge's paintings are sought after by many collectors. She enjoys travelling and many of us get to visit England, Maine, and California through the beautiful and atmospheric works that Marge brings home. Sometimes I think I could just "smell the day," by the way she brings you into a painting.

There are nearly a dozen of Marge Levine paintings at the gallery, and keeping the sizes 16x20 and smaller, they are available in a reachable price range. All of her work is custom framed using special glass for works on paper.

Please visit us at 201 Farnsworth Avenue, and surround yourself with the beauty and joy of Marge Levine.

                                             "Vase," by Hanneke deNeve


And so we begin our gallery countdown! As promised, I will be posting, chatting, blogging and boasting about the talented and affordable fine art available at the Artful Deposit Gallery.  As I mentioned in my post the other day, many of the represented artists do enjoy a national reputation, and have worked hard to establish a consistency in pricing, and may for some lean toward more of an investment price. However, that amount varies from artist to artist and collector to collector.

I think that the excitement of purchasing and collecting a piece of fine art is truly hard to describe until someone takes that first plunge. Again I recommend, find an artist you enjoy, explore their price range, and inquire about purchasing possibilities at the gallery  (ie installment payments).

Now, let's chat about the lovely 11x14 original oil/board by the multi-talented Hanneke deNeve. This piece is custom framed, signed, and was just delivered along with eight other smaller works and retails for under
$500.  Sound appealing? Hope so, as Hanneke is internationally acclaimed having many solo exhibitions in her native homeland of Holland, Italy, and America.  Come visit the gallery and browse the work of this most talented artist.
