Hand Made Gifts
Art Gallery & Gifts in Somerset, MA
Named for Mariette LeComte (our matriarch), the Mariette Gallery is an eclectic showcase of artwork and handcrafted gifts. We exhibit original works by a selection of local artists (including our own employees) as well as framed prints.
The gallery intentionally carries handmade items that are not mass-produced, to show our love and support for other small businesses and entrepreneurial artisans. We have hand-thrown pottery from ceramicists in Somerset, blown glass from a studio in Westport, fused glass and jewelry from all over the country as well as by many local artists.
We also carry a mix of candles, clocks, magnets and book marks, as well as purses, pins, and books by local writers and illustrators. The gallery is always changing, as we are constantly finding something new and interesting for those artful gifts you love to give and receive.

GALLERY SUBMISSION POLICY
Most of the original artwork on our gallery walls was made by Riverside Art employees, both past and present. We love to show off the talents of those who work here and feel that it’s important to show that many of us are working artists, and that we are often in the same boat as our customers. When it comes to framing, art supplies, and quality prints, we share many of the same concerns, and have the same high-expectations. Having our work on display seems to also be a great ice-breaker which can help our customers to get to know us and further those relationships we have with them.
While much of the work was created by our own staff, we do have original works and reproductions by a select group of local artists who have been working with Riverside Art for a very long time.
We have a rotating selection of work by Dartmouth artist, Christine Bean. We have several original watercolors available that are matted and framed. And we have a small selection of her limited edition lithograph reproductions.
We have many pieces by Bob Duff, both framed and unframed. We have in stock: canvas transfers, lithographic reproductions on paper, and sometimes original pieces.
We do much of Brain’s giclee printing and have a variety of images by Brian as printer’s proofs. These are available for purchase through Riverside Art.
