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.

One of Deer Isle’s most interesting artists in residence is Frederica Marshall. Having mastered the Japanese art of Sumi-e painting during her 30 years living in Japan, Marshall teaches the technique from her art school / gallery in Deer Isle. She is hosting a workshop trip to China in March 2010.
