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. Our local art gallery is always changing, as we are constantly finding something new and interesting for those artful gifts you love to give and receive.

Handcrafted items are regularly considered for consignment in the gallery. The decision to carry a certain line or item is based upon our current stock and is at the sole discretion of the gallery buyer.

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.

"Bean started to hone her painting skills in 1980 by taking classes and workshops. Since then, she has exhibited her work extensively in southern New England, such as the Cape Cod Art Association and Newport Art Association, and won many awards. She is a member of the Rhode Island Watercolor Society, American Society of Marine Artists, Westport Art Group and Marion Art Center. Her work is displayed at Riverside Art in Somerset and the Donovan Gallery in Tiverton."

We have old, local maps available of many of the surrounding towns within the Greater Fall River and New Bedford areas. The maps are printed as digital reproductions, so we can print them in a variety of sizes to fit your needs.
