  • So happy I discovered this place. How wonderful it is to feel like you've stumbled upon the Hudson Valley's best kept secret. My husband and I popped in not expecting to spend the rest of our afternoon at the gallery. We enjoyed wine while speaking to the artist herself (such a down to earth, inclusive artist--a rarity these days). It was such a unique experience and I can't wait to return.
  • Impressive, gorgeous gallery in New Paltz! I was in the area visiting friends and decided to check this place out based on their recommendation. Yes, it's a little off the beaten path, but is so worth the scenic drive! The space is vast and beautiful. I wouldn't call myself a modern art expert by any means, but was taken by the use of bold color and texture. Donna's work is joyful and full of life, so it seems fitting that the paintings have room to breathe in this spacious layout. While some galleries can seem stuck up or cold, this one is quite the opposite. Donna (and gallery manager Ken) are more than happy to give you a personal guided tour, and Donna will share the origins and inspiration for her work. Don't be intimidated if you aren't an artist or don't know much about it -- you will still enjoy this gallery!
  • This place is unassuming from the outside, but delightful in the inside! Just go. Go and enjoy the clean bright space that houses the delightful, imaginative array of inspired paintings. Just go!
  • One doesn't always have to travel far to find a hidden treasure. I have lived in Gardiner for almost 40 years and recently discovered the wonderful DM Weil Gallery on Bruynswick Rd. The space is gorgeous, the artist engaging and her work captivating. In addition to a wide array of pieces (originals and prints) available at a variety of price points she offers unique art experiences for children and adults. The idea of spending a day with the artist - lunch, wine and creative expression included - has me alerting my friends and family to my latest addition to my birthday wishlist! Bottom line whether you have lived here all your life, find yourself in the area or are looking for a day trip make your way to DM Weil Gallery.
  • DM Weil is my favorite contemporary artist...and now I own an original!!! My first encounter of DM Weil's strikingly bold, colorful work was a number of years ago when her gallery was in the South Bronx. I was invited to an opening and had no idea what to expect. I was blown away by her collection of large canvases and her use of color, lots of color , bold, beautiful color, woven throughout each painting with a story behind each one. That evening I set eyes on "Firefly," my favorite of them all. I really don't know much about contemporary art, I'm not a collector, but this evening something came over me and I said "I want that painting." I have visited the gallery in New Paltz to see Firefly again on several occasions. Every so often, DM Weil would remind me how many people inquire about it and have made offers, but I had given her my word. Well, it took me a few years to save up for this, but I finally own a DM Weil original!!! I love the intricate, complex use of color, layer upon layer, and of course the firefly lighting up the painting. Perhaps it reminds me of my childhood, the luminosity of an insect lighting up summer nights, a sense of wonder through a child's eye. Finally, Firefly is hanging in my home and I couldn't be happier. DM Weil even came down to NYC to install it in my home. Thank you!
