It’s been several years since I’ve run the gallery and I was feeling a wee bit rusty as I prepped the rooms, hung the art, and made wall tags over the past few days. Now that it’s actually open, I feel a sense of relief, and I’m looking forward to old friends – and new – coming in to see the work.
Clean, fresh, and ready for the summer…
I’m showing my new paintings, jewelry, an assortment of mixed media pieces, as well as photography by my very talented daughter, Cynthia Farr-Weinfeld, and very hip recycled bags by Julia Ventresco of One Woman Studio.
And then there’s Max…
Do I look like an art lover??
I think he’s going to make a great “shop dog.” Not to mention, he’s a real conversation starter… “Is he a…?” Nope, he’s a Standard Poodle puppy.
Stop in and visit – we’re open Wednesday to Saturday from 1-5 PM.

Welcome to Arts Guide new blog.
Yesterday – Tuesday, October 6th – I helped hang a wonderful show at Carolyn Hecker’s Pearson Legacy Gallery here in Deer Isle. Titled “Transformations: Mainstreaming Mud,” it’s the first exhibition in the off-season schedule of the gallery, located at 13 Dow Rd., Deer Isle. Over 40 artists use clay: some as a material for an elegant vase, bowl or platter or perhaps for a sculptural wall or free-standing piece. Some capture the work of others who use clay in a photograph or a painting. And many interpret clay and mud as they exist in nature. When I walk in the front door, I feel as if I ‘ve entered an upscale city gallery. There’s a lot of breathing room in this exhibit – space to appreciate each piece.
The exhibit is open Thursdays through Sundays, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., ending on October 25th.
The Pearson Legacy MINI Gallery (a year-round small gallery adjacent to the main exhibition space with work in all media) will also be open. For information on the exhibition and other programs, call: 348- 2535. After October 12th, call: 348-6848. If you are in the area, come to the opening tomorrow, Thursday, October 8th from 5-7 pm.
Look for an update, with photos, on Friday.
By the way – that amazing photograph of Blue Hill Harbor at dawn (above) is by my daughter – Cynthia Farr-Weinfeld.
