amArtHouse was founded out of an appreciation of the already established, emerging and the yet to be discovered artists of Contemporary and Modern Art.
Artur Matuszewski, owner and curator of the gallery, brings over 25 years experience in the Arts/Antiques industry, a working knowledge of the creation and conservation of various mediums of art and an enthusiasm for the dialogue created by the gathering of people, generated by the art.
An immigrant, from Milanowek Poland, Artur spent his younger days amongst the working artists in his family. With a love of art instilled in him, he emigrated to the U.S., alone, in his late teens to pursue his education in Fine Arts and Art Restoration/Conservation.
Artur opened his own Restoration/Faux Finishing Studio in Midtown Manhattan, dedicated to working with Interior Design Firms, Museums, Auction Houses and private clients. After several years and a successful run of his business, he made the decision to close and pursue his career path in Europe, with his central focus in Paris, France.
For the past 16 years, Artur has been living and working abroad as well as here, in the U.S., as an Art Conservator. He is an active participant in International Art Shows, including the La Biennale Paris, Masterpiece London and Brafa Art Fair Belgium.
Although his work took him to foreign lands a majority of the time, Artur always called his “permanent home” NYC and now, for the past 12 years, Connecticut. He chose to return and stay home for good this time, bringing with him his passion for Art, thus founding amArtHouse.
