About Us

 

In October of 2012, we opened the door to Mala Galleria, located in the center of beautiful historic Kennett Square, the Mushroom Capitol of the world. We decided to join the other merchants and help create the perfect little town in America! Named "Best Gallery for the Community Minded" by Mainline Today in 2013, Mala Galleria is proud to feature work by local, national, and international artists and craftspeople.

 

Zvezdana Stojanovic Scott, known to many as Stella, has resided in the United States since 1996. She has recently relocated to Kennett Square, after living in Washington, DC for the eight years. A native of Republic of Serbia, Stella runs a non-profit organization based in Washington, DC, where she is involved in organizing many humanitarian projects to help the Serbian people worldwide, as well as promoting Serbian cultural events, including independent film festivals, theater shows, and art exhibits.

 

The word “Mala” comes from the Serbian language, and means “Small”. The idea of Mala Galleria was to collect works from artists around the world and provide an opportunity for this art to be displayed where it would otherwise never be seen.  Immerse yourself in a different viewpoint of the world, seen through the eyes of artists over 6000 miles away.
