Visitors just have to stop in, fill out a drawing ticket and join in the fun. No purchase is necessary. Refreshments and art demonstrations will fill the day.
In January, Riverside Artisans changed its name from Lakeside Artisans, which formerly occupied the shop. Lakeside Artisans had won Oswego County’s Business Plan Competition, The Next Great Idea, award in 2010. This enabled local artist entrepreneurs to start the cooperative that has since grown into Riverside Artisans. Retirement of two of the cooperative’s founding members at the end of 2016 lead to the change in name.
Riverside Artisans offers a wide range of professional fine art and crafts, as well as an opportunity to meet the artists who have created them. From original paintings and handcrafted wood work, to fused glass and hand-made jewelry, Riverside Artisans is a great place to look for that unique gift for yourself and for a special someone. Oswego’s leading gift shop takes pride in reasonably priced, handmade quality crafts and fine art.
Riverside Artisans is a cooperative art store and gallery, operated by local artists and craftspeople, located in the Canal Commons at 191 W 1st Street, in downtown Oswego. The store is open Monday - Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 a.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.
