SWAIN GALLERIES CELEBRATES ITS 140TH ANNIVERSARY THIS YEAR

Plainfield, NJ, Thursday, March 06, 2008. Founded in 1868 by Phillip Swain, the Swain Galleries of Plainfield, NJ celebrates its 140th anniversary this year. The fourth generation frame shop and art gallery resides in a large Victorian house in one of the town’s historic districts and is certainly the oldest art establishment in New Jersey – and possibly in the entire metropolitan area.

When Philip Swain opened his store there were no lighted or paved streets in Plainfield. Philip died in 1943, just ten days short of 100 years old, but saw his son, Walter Sr. take over the helm in 1919, with Walter Jr. coming on board in 1953. The gallery now is run by Phillip’s great grand daughter, Ann Swain McQuillan and her sales and framing staff.

Swain Galleries provides complete fine art services, including appraisal, consultation and recommendation on acquisition, installation, conservation and restoration of art and museum quality framing. Swain’s has eight separate galleries, a private viewing studio, plus shops for framing filling the building’s four levels.
