About Us

Gallery 224 | ARTservancy | Studio 224 was founded by Jane C. Suddendorf.  Jane started this gallery in Port Washington as a simple place for students to create art and disply art. The original space was donated to help the cause. Eventually moving to its current location on 303 N Franklin Street. 


Jane was always behind the scenes, never one to be in the limelight. Her last show,  just a simple gathering, held a few months after she passed was titled  To be Continued. . . which showcased posters for the many art shows she sponsored since the conception of the gallery. 

Her love of art, land conservancy, and the wonderful community of artists she built continues today.
