About Us

River Art Gallery builds relationships based upon mutual respect for the contribution both the artist and gallery staff. We are honored to be a catalyst for creativity, your professional growth and personal success within the arts. Founded in 2009, River Art Gallery & Gifts has helped to build and support a flourishing artistic community in WNY.

We are located in the heart of North Tonawanda’s historical and cultural district. We exhibit original artwork by regional artists from the Buffalo, Western New York, and the 


Southern Ontario region. Our store carries original paintings, giclée prints, jewelry, glass art, sculpture, fiber art, illustrations, plaques, note cards, ceramics, and unique one-of-a-kind home accessories. River’s parent company, Pencil in the River Studio, Inc. began over 30 years ago. Now, these two businesses work in collaboration to ensure the highest level of quality in fine art giclée reproductions with exposure in today’s art marketplace, from the local to international level.

We encourage our members to invest the time essential for successful networking and relationship building, as we work together to establish the processes and business support systems vital to maintaining their career in the world of art. We offer a selection of artist support services that build their professional pathway and career in the arts. Working within a consignment brick and mortar retail space hosting gallery exhibitions throughout the year, our members are active participants within our artist network.
