Why Small Businesses Matter in Ridgefield: Fine Art Restoring Hudson Valley

Why Small Businesses Matter

Shop small, do big things for your community

Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!

You're IT Fine Art Restoring Hudson Valley!

Four questions with Jerilyn Campbell, founder of Fine Art Restoring Hudson Valley.

Why did you start your business?

I wanted to care for paintings on canvas and wood panels to ensure their continued historic, artistic and personal journeys through their preservation. Pieces of art can have a sentimental attachment to us, but they also inform us of the person who created them and the time they lived in as well. To continue their legacy is meaningful for me.

What is your best-selling product/service?

Depending upon the needs of the artwork, it might be the removal of discolored varnish and minor paint touch-ups, the repair of the torn canvas, or replacing major losses of the canvas. It varies from piece to piece, and each one has different needs that I look forward to making whole again.

How many local businesses do you use to support your business (products and services) and can you name them?

Sean at The Frame Shop has been a tremendous resource in assisting with projects for my clients. The Ridgefield (Ace) Hardware is my go-to for needed supplies and I hope to find new resources in town as well!

Have you reimagined your small business?

I’m grateful to have worked with other art restorers during the pandemic and supported their studios while I paused my studio work. Now I can focus on my studio and still consider my colleagues as wonderful collaborators in all our ongoing projects for our clients.
