| the rebirth of an old tradition |
The Koeppel family operated the Queenstown Gallery in this location at 43 South Main Street in Pennington, New Jersey, for forty years. Now – five decades later - Dana Koeppel, granddaughter of the original owner, continues the tradition started so long ago.
In 1965, George Koeppel and his partner, Rosemary Wetherill, opened an art gallery in this historic 1798 residence. Soon they began showcasing the talents of area artists and supplying custom picture framing to the local community. The place rapidly became a “local art center” by offering art lessens, discussions and art openings.
In 1981, Jack Koeppel, son of the original owner, took over operations and followed in the footsteps of the business created back in the 1960’s. Jack brought with him the experience he had gained while working at the New Jersey State Museum in Trenton.
Area artists were featured in changing shows for over two decades. The receptions and gatherings were often very lively. During this period the community looked to this South Main Street location as a place to see and purchase the art of local talent.
In terms of custom picture framing, the Koeppel family has prided itself on consistantly going the extra mile to provide the best value in framing and the highest quality work possible. The knowledge and experience gained through three generations in the business comes into play with every new project at Veridian Gallery today.
Your valued artwork, treasured family heirloom, or latest acquisition, will be beautifully framed and safely protected by Veridian Gallery.
