About River Gallery

Ara Hamamjian is the proud owner of River Gallery. Ara's parents founded the gallery in 1970, and Ara grew up enveloped in his parents' love for the arts and their legendary dedication to their custom picture framing workshop. As he got older, Ara only found himself more passionate about preserving the gallery. After receiving a degree from The Ohio State University, Ara enrolled himself in The Framing Academy of San Francisco to professionally augment his already extensive knowledge about picture framing. Having considered it a second home already, Ara purchased River Gallery from his parents in 1994.2019 marks Ara's 25th anniversary at the helm of the gallery.

 

River Gallery is dedicated to supporting the revival and continuance of Cleveland area arts and artists. 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 in metals, blown glass, ceramics, photography, and jewelry fabrications.

 

Liz Maugans of the CAN journal writes,"Recently revitalized with a street-side make over by the city this is a charming, pedestrian and pet-friendly neighborhood of shops and galleries, with River Gallery is the longstanding local business on the block.  Certainly one of the best kept secrets of the westside suburb of Rocky River".
