VERNON - The Cardinal Art Gallery on the corner of Rout 94 and Vernon Crossing has a new owner but for the most part everything will remain pretty much the same as Bob Wilson knows that he is the owner of one of the country’s top wildlife art galleries. Wilson, who lives in Vernon, was himself a long time customer of the previous owner and purchased his first limited edition print back in 1984. “As the new owner, my goal is to offer the same high quality limited edition prints, canvas prints and original paintings that have been the hallmark of the gallery for the last 22 years,” he said. Since Wilson took over the gallery last September he has acquired many new original paintings and is currently featuring a “Show of Cardinals” with one room of the gallery filled with nothing but Cardinal limited edition prints and original art paintings. “We also provide a competitively priced custom framing service in which the customer can be involved down to the last detail or can simply leave it up to us,” said Wilson. Starting on Feb. 14 through the end of March, the Cardinal Art Gallery will be presenting a wolf exhibit. “In addition to containing limited edition prints and canvass and original paintings there will also be a running video of wolves in the wild,” said Wilson. “I would urge people to come down and look and I’m sure that they will be pleasantly surprised by what we have to offer,” he added. According to Wilson he has commitments for new original paintings from renowned painter’s, Terry Isaac, Mark Mueller, Grey Giordano, Will Goebel, Linda Rosin and John Seerey-Lester. The Cardinal Art Gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday and evenings by appointment. For more information call 973-764-5050.
