Fine Art and Handcrafted Gifts from Local Artisans

We're Open!

Oswego’s premier source for fine art and handmade gifts changed its name to Riverside Artisans at the beginning of 2017.  The shop at 191 West 1st St. in the Canal Commons in downtown Oswego closed briefly in early January for the transition, but we're open now, seven days a week!

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 the premier destination 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.

Open seven days a week
10 – 6   Monday through Saturday
12 – 4   Sunday



Riverside Artisans is offering a great way to do something special with Dad for Father’s Day. Bonnie Sommers will present a Date with Dad Paint Party for children of all ages on the afternoon of Saturday, June 17 from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Canal Commons Community room at 193 W 1st Street, Oswego. This father/child paint party provides the opportunity to spend some quality time together, while you create your own masterpieces and memories.

Participants will paint Bonnie’s beautiful spring scenes with fireflies flitting through the warm spring air.

Children of all ages and their fathers are welcome at this special afternoon session. Snacks to pass are welcomed. A fruit punch provided. The cost is $35 dollars for Dad and one child, and includes all materials. Brushes, paints, canvases, aprons and easels will be provided. Participants need only to bring their own refreshments.

Sign up at the store with a $10 dollar deposit. There is a $10 dollar extra charge for each additional child Dad brings with him.
To register, stop into Riverside Artisans shop at 191 West 1st Street in Oswego or give us a call at 315-342-8880. Gift certificates for Paint Parties are now available as well.

The Riverside Artisans store is open Monday - Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 a.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.



Grand Opening Celebration
Saturday, June 3

Who wants to have a Grand Opening Celebration in January?  Not Riverside Artisans! We changed our name in January, but everyone knows that June in Oswego is great, so we postponed our Grand Opening until June 3, just to have nicer weather.
