About River Gallery

     Ara Hamamjian is the current and proud owner of River Gallery. Ara's parents had founded the gallery in 1970. Ara grew up surrounded by his parents' love for the arts and in the framing workshop. As he got older, he only found himself more passionate about the gallery. After receiving a degree from The Ohio State University, he enrolled himself in The Framing Academy of San Francisco to increase his already extensive knowledge about picture framing. Having considered it a second home, Ara purchased River Gallery from his parents in 1994.

     River gallery is dedicated to supporting the revival and continuance of Cleveland area arts. Ara has established connections with the art professors and alumni of area schools such as the Cleveland Institute of Art, Baldwin Wallace University, and Kent State University. The gallery shows everything from contemporary to traditional style paintings, works of metals, blown glass, ceramics, photography, and jewelry fabrications. Liz Maugans of the CAN journal writes,"Recently revitalized with a streetside make over by the city this is a charming, pedestrian and pet-friendly neighborhood of shops and galleries, with River Gallery and its neighbor Devout Home two of the longstanding local businesses on the block.  Certainly one of the best kept secrets of the westside suburb of Rocky River".
