Just a short drive from the center of picturesque New Paltz, the DM Weil Gallery offers the look and vibe of an exclusive Soho style exhibition space, but with the majestic Shawangunk mountains as a backdrop. While the art on the walls -- the eye-popping abstract creations of acclaimed painter DM Weil -- has been praised by critics and collectors alike, the gallery's mission statement remains, "Why Can't Fine Art Be Fun?" « less

In New Paltz for a few days recently and found this place through Tripadvisor. Very deceiving from the outside as is bigger once you enter. Colorful, large abstract art greets you in the main gallery, there are 2 separate spaces. Ken, the manager was on hand to answer questions and explain how they reproduce prints and giclees from the original... More

If you like to take a drive in the country with a purpose, planning a trip up the Hudson Valley is a perfect way to spend the day. The scenery is beautiful, as you drive pass bucolic farm scenes, beautiful hillsides, meandering rivers and sparking lakes. But what makes this the perfect day is that while you get to take... More

It's been a few years since I've been back to New Paltz and on this trip I remembered my previous visit to the DM Weil Gallery. It was as exciting as the first time I came. A wonderful surprise however, was the addition of an art trail I got to follow in addition to this gallery which availed me to... More

We try to get to New Paltz in the Spring and again for Fall Foliage whenever possible, and always make DM Weil Gallery a stop on our visit. It's easy to spend an afternoon in the space, enjoying the art and the hospitality of the artist... she's engaging and fun, and I love hearing about the inspiration behind each piece.... More

Every artist dreams of having a solo show in a large gallery. This artist simply built the gallery herself. The space is enormous, and may attain intimacy when filled with a hundred or more visitors, but is otherwise a bit cold and uninviting. The paintings, too, seem remote and stand - offish within the space. Admittedly, I am not generally... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave this feedback. As you can imagine, I'm quite disheartened to hear you found my gallery to be cold and uninviting. That is definitely not what we're going for. Furthermore, I place a great deal of thought and care into every work I make, so I'm sorry if that didn't shine through when... More

DM Weil welcomed me upon entering her gallery, introducing herself and explaining a bit about the space and exhibit. There was a tasteful spread of finger foods (chocolates, cookies, hummus, etc.) along with wine and other drinks hospitably offered. The Artist described her work as “playful and energetic”. I would agree and add colorful. Some of the canvases selected for... More

If you are headed to, or anywhere near, the New Paltz area, the DM Weil gallery should be on your must-visit list. It’s a treat for the senses. It is just 1.5 hours north of NYC; and the area makes a superb getaway destination for those times when you need to free your mind. The gallery is a great compliment... More

While driving in the country to take a break from the city lights, we stumbled upon an art gallery that was wonderful. Eye opening modern art, with a whimsical twist rounded off this enjoyable find of art, wine and conversation. This is a "don't miss", but keep your eyes open or you just might! i say Go, go, go!
