J. Petter Galleries

Fine Art. Fine Wine.

Welcome to the Historic River Guild Gallery Center and home of J. Petter Galleries.  The Galleries are the combined Petter Art Gallery and Petter Wine Gallery.  We are an unusual find for art enthusiasts, collectors, and designers, plus a beautiful destination for wine lovers.

About J. Petter Galleries

J. Petter Galleries is located in a unique 12,500 square foot fine art gallery building that first housed area artists in the 1930s.  It was reintroduced as the Joyce Petter Gallery in 1993. The Art Gallery now features an eclectic collection of fine paintings, sculpture, glass, and more. The galleries are also home to Petter Wine Gallery where you’ll find boutique wines and artful foods at both the wine/small plates bar and wine shop. The Wine Bar/Shop is also known for its private collection of unique cheeses and hand poured chocolates. Of course, you may walk the galleries with a glass from our wine bar.
