The Square Pear’s exhibits change monthly and center around a theme inspired and interpreted by the artists represented that particular month. The gallery’s owner and curator, Corien Siepelinga, focuses on showing various styles of artwork from local, national, and international artists.
Our patrons look forward to the first Friday opening receptions as a time to gather and view the new works on display. You are always welcome to stop by and explore the featured show during regular hours, or by appointment.
How it all began…
In January of 2018 Corien Siepelinga purchased Mala Galleria from Zvezdana Stojanovic Scott, known to many as Stella. The gallery’s name had been inspired by the word mala, or ‘small’ in Serbian.
As expected, the gallery was well received and, in time, moved from its tiny storefront to its current spacious location at 200 East State Street. Mala Galleria was eventually renamed The Square Pear Fine Art Gallery to reflect Corien’s story and the Kennett Square community she and her family now call home.
