Since its founding, the Historic City of Bordentown has always been a haven for important politicians, entrepreneurs, writers, crafters/makers, and fine artists. These local artists are continuing and highlighting that special tradition.

The exhibiting Bordentown artists are Al Barker, outdoorsman and award-winning wildlife oil and watercolor painter; Ann Darlington, published and award winning landscape and nature photographer; Marsha Dowshen, well known ceramicist and clay artist, producer of functional and decorative pottery, tiles, wall hangings and pins; Debbie Pey, an eclectic abstract painter who previously taught art for 30 years; Maggie Rose, specializing in oil painting, collage and 3-D assemblages after her work at the Johnson Atelier in Princeton (now at Grounds for Sculpture); Andrea Schlaffer, who has turned her collections of “stuff” from yard sales, flea markets, antique and second hand stores into a joyful, very special collection of “people” and “animals”; and Pat Todd, a skilled painter well known for her extensive plein air and still life work, showing in many art shows, exhibitions, and competitions.

Leaping Dog Art Studios at 325 Farnsworth Ave. will display the work local, emerging art students, aiming to join the ranks of the unique and special Artists of Bordentown.
