About Us


Elder Gallery

Elder Gallery is a beautiful venue for the artwork created by the artists we represent.  Our main focus is on American artists who produce high quality work with a wide variety of styles, media and subject matter. We host several exhibitions throughout the year to showcase our artists. We are the exclusive representative for the collections of Leon A. Makielski (1885-1974), Ernest Walker (1892 -1991), and Carl Plansky (1951 - 2009).  Periodically, we introduce new artists who add a new and exciting element to our offerings.

In addition to paintings, Elder Gallery represents a number of three-dimensional artists who produce exquisite sculptures made of bronze, steel, and stone, and earthenware. Our artists have been recognized for excellence by prestigious art publications, national organizations and exhibitions.

Throughout the year we offer a wide variety of exhibitions to showcase a number of our artists as well as special group shows which introduce new talent through our gallery. Additional information on these shows as well as other events can be found as they happen throughout the year under “Current Show” on our website.

Elder Gallery is committed to presenting the finest quality and widest selection of original artwork in a variety of styles with fair and reasonable price points. Our gallery is dedicated to assisting the new collector as well as corporate and experienced private collectors.

We strive to offer a welcoming and comfortable environment that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. We welcome children to visit the gallery with their parents to experience the excitement that our artists have created through their work.

The spacious layout of the gallery lends itself to become a venue for social and business events. Weddings, wedding receptions, private cocktail parties, corporate business planning sessions are but a few types of events that we comfortably host.  We work closely with Queen City Catering who professionally coordinate scheduling and catering for events.
