Our Story

Mari Ann And Bruce


Bruce Wylie and Mari Ann Maher opened The Antique and Artisan Gallery with the goal to create an unparalleled shopping experience.

While leading the design team at John Rosselli & Associates in Manhattan, Mari Ann cultivated a vast knowledge of the antiques industry. Now each and every client at The Antique And Artisan Gallery benefits from her keen eye and reputable know-how.

Bruce’s background as a buyer for many of New York's leading auction houses and antiques dealers gives him the confidence to curate The Antique And Artisan inventory with only the highest quality pieces.

Along with a plethora of talented vendors, The Antique And Artisan has become a design experience unlike any other.

From a bricks and mortar store to the World Wide Web, The Antique And Artisan Gallery brings the quality of the past into the present day.
