Best times to visit the gallery - If you only go down Rt. 26 when coming into or leaving town only on summer weekends and holidays, you'd think the road stays busy all the time. It's not. With the recent addition of a third lane, traffic is moving quickly and smoothly most of the time. Times to avoid are Saturday mornings when heading toward Bethany and Sunday mornings when heading west. Please slow down as you approach the gallery's parking lot entrance. Traffic is moving very quickly and it comes up fast. Scan the QR code on this page for live mobile directions.

Painter, writer and gallery owner Ellen Rice is acknowledged widely as one of the East Coast's most collected artists. Working from her home on the edge of a wildlife refuge in the bay area of coastal Delaware, her paintings and prints reflect a great love of the natural beauty around her and a vast array of interests.
From her nationally bestselling Treasure Beaches of the Mid-Atlantic map and luminescent seascapes and landscapes to her touchingly lifelike human and animal portraits and inspirational women series, her work is found in private, corporate and government collections throughout the world. "My greatest joy," says the artist, "is sharing with paint and words moments that create awe."
Ellen's bricks and mortar gallery is filled with her paintings in oils and their reproductions and the handmade works of more than 100 of America's most talented artisans, all hand picked by Ellen for the uplifting spirit with which they create and their dedication to quality workmanship.
These pages provide a venue to begin exploration. Better still, come in person to view the full scope and depth of Ellen's paintings and one of the '10 Must-See Art Galleries and Museums in Delaware'. ~ The Culture Trip.
