Art has always surrounded Caryn Krueger. Growing up in NJ, her parents supported several local and now internationally renowned artists. These artists were just starting out, painting on donated canvases, wood scraps and linoleum in the 1960’s and 70s. Their artwork was everywhere in their home and she was fascinated by the craft.
After graduating from Ithaca College with a degree in business management and minor in art history, Krueger’s first job immersed her in the gallery business. For more than five years, Krueger was manager of a premiere gallery in NJ. As a respected local gallery, she was able to work hands-on with artists and clients dealing in paintings , prints, American craft, art glass, and sculpture. She also went on to receive her Appraisers Certification from New York University and worked with several auction houses and a corporate art consulting firm in SoHo for three years.
In ’94, she formalized her business to establish CSM Art & Frame while her client demand for art and framing services was blossoming. She refined her focus to the trade while still satisfying the need of her retail customers. In 2003, Krueger opened her first gallery, in Millburn, NJ. By 2008, CSM Art & Frame moved to an unique industrial location in Chatham, NJ where they would remain for 6 years. As the CSM client base grew, it became apparent a larger space was necessary. This need resulted in the recent move to a charming 3 story carriage house on Main Street in Chatham, NJ. This new location is steps away from the train station providing easy access to and from New York. CSM is celebrating its 22nd year in conjunction with the reopening in its new location.
