Decoys And Wildlife Gallery
55 Bridge Street
As our name states, we are a unique gallery that specializes in all forms of wildlife art and duck decoys. What makes us unique is the selection of art we offer in a wide variety of media and our quality custom framing. Take a minute to glance at the sampling of art forms you will find in our gallery. This is just a partial listing of what you can expect to see, and our selection is continuously widening as new talented artists are discovered.
The gallery has been in business for 15 years. We are open every day from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. (except Christmas) or anytime by appointment.
Limited Edition Prints & Original Paintings - From local artists to world renowned, we have a large selection of original paintings in oil, watercolor and mixed media from the finest wildlife artists. We also have the most sought after limited edition prints from the most popular artists in the wildlife arena such as Robert Bateman, Carl Brenders, Bev Doolittle, Wilhelm Goebel, Terry Isaac, Dan Smith and many others that are represented by the following publishing companies:
Applejack, Greenwich Workshop, Hadley House, Mill Pond Press, NWF Artwatch and Wildwings
Duck Decoys and Carvings - From working decoys to decoratives which are true works of art, we have a large selection of birds to choose from. While we may specialize in Delaware River style decoys, we also represent carvers from all over the country, including many decoratives that are award winning in world class competition. Our song and shore birds run the gamut from stick birds (slicks) to detailed miniature and full size birds that are so life-like, many people believe they are looking at feathers.
Interpretive Art & Figures - The gallery also features unique items of interpretive art that reflect the finest in nature sculpture, and decorative objects created from natural materials such as wood burls and carved alabaster.
Custom Framing - We feature a full line of custom framing with a wide variety of mounting (Vacuum, Museum) and mat ( shadowbox, hand wrapped, triple) options. There are many moldings that we stock, including many fine burls.
Special Events - We also host shows for some of the top names in wildlife art in order for our customers to meet the artists and view their work. And throughout the year we have special events, such as our annual "Original Miniature" show in the fall and our "Open House" which is held each February. Many local artists and carvers are here for these events to discuss their work or just to chat. We normally serve refreshments for these socials and everyone seems to have a good time. It’s a great way to run into old friends or meet new ones with similar interests.
