Since 1979, after her first trip to Israel, Carol Schwartz began importing and representing Israeli artists. This was her way of being able to give back. By 1990, she established a gallery in the Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia, which grew into an eclectic collection of fine art, vintage posters, judaica, and jewelry by local, national and international artists.

Elliot, Carol’s husband carries on the tradition of her vision. Coming from a background in the fashion industry and always appreciating the arts, it was a natural progression for him to get involved in the family business. He had 31 years of experience manufacturing clothing around the world. His business background was a perfect complement to Carol’s appreciation of fine art.

In 2019, the gallery moved from its Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia location to Lake Worth, Florida. The gallery is now located at the Palm Beach Art, Antique, & Design Showroom.
