About the Gallery
Since 2004, Gallery Owners, Theresa Abel and Tim O’Neill, have exhibited artists with national reputations along with the work of well-known local artists and emerging talent. For Abel, a painter, and O’Neill, a woodworker and metalsmith, it is important to exhibit fine art and fine craft side by side. The gallery features notable artwork in many media, hosting three concurrent exhibits every seven weeks and maintains an alternative exhibit space which offers an opportunity for more evocative work such as installations and video art. In 2019 Abel Contemporary made the move from Paoli to Stoughton, just a few miles to the east. Abel and O’Neill spent much of 2018 and the beginning of 2019 renovating the gallery’s current home, a historic tobacco warehouse originally constructed in 1891. This 8,000 square foot building is a spectacular backdrop for some of the most notable art and craft in the region.
Abel Contemporary offers delivery in the greater Madison area, experienced nationwide shipping, art installation, art consultation and collection development services.
Abel Contemporary Gallery is currently accepting proposals from artists creating jewelry in all media. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with images and C.V. and link to any website or other pertinent information.
Please note the gallery is not currently accepting proposals for the gallery in any other media at this time with the exception of exhibition proposals for the no.5 gallery.

There is parking available along the east side of our building as well as on Main Street and along neighboring residential streets. There are also several public parking lots in the area including the Stoughton Library and City Hall lots.
Please do not park on the west side of our building. That parking lot belongs to another business, and they will tow vehicles. Thank you!
*Please note, we are working on ramp that is ADA compliant, but currently there are several steps to the entrance of the gallery. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to resolve this issue. We are happy to lend a hand if you need assistance on the stairs.
