About Us: Sweetheart Gallery

About Us

Sweetheart Gallery is your source for an eclectic collection of beautiful fine art and functional, handmade, artisanal objects from home decor to personal accessories.
In addition to our e-commerce site, which we have had since 2001, we also have a gallery in Bearsville, NY. We originally opened in the town of Woodstock, New York in 1981.

In 1993, we had an opportunity to buy a building overlooking the beautiful Tannery Brook Waterfall, also in the heart of Woodstock. A larger and more enchanting space, Sweetheart Gallery flourished in that location for many years.
 

As a natural outgrowth of our gallery, in 2001, we launched SweetheartGallery.Com, a site devoted to the support of American crafts. Norman, a web designer, was the impetus behind it. Our site offers you a carefully selected collection of limited, unique, home and personal accessories, from American contemporary designers and artisans.

In 2014 Sweetheart Gallery, moved, once again, to their charming and intimate studio space in Bearsville, New York, only three miles from Woodstock.  Lila, a painter, is shifting the focus of the gallery, at this time, to incorporate a more fine art approach.

ABOUT THE OWNERS

In 1981, we started our retail gallery in Woodstock, New York. As owners, we have a long history with the arts, and have been making art ourselves for as long as we can remember.

Norman BaconNorman Bacon, co-owner, graduated from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, in 1969, with a degree in art. He enjoyed a thirty year career as an artist potter, selling his work to fine American craft galleries, and museums. During that time he and his wife opened a retail gallery in Woodstock, New York. In 1993, they had an opportunity to buy a building overlooking the beautiful Tannery Brook Waterfall, also in the heart of Woodstock. A larger and more enchanting space, Sweetheart Gallery flourished in that location for many years. In 2000, Norman ventured into online web design courses, to further extend his passion for the arts and the growth of their gallery, by developing their online presence. Yah... we've been around awhile!
