The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious.
It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of
true art and true science.

Hayslette - Brothers in Twilight 32x40
We hope that you all have been enjoying and taking advantage of this wonderful summer season. Our artists continue to bring in more beautiful original artwork, and in a renewed effort to fit it all in the gallery we constructed a new hanging wall. It was a team effort for such a project, and we are thankful for your patience over the week of time it took to complete and reorganize the copious amount of artwork we fit in our little space. Now we are back hitting the ground running and better than ever! You also might notice some new faces working in the gallery, as we have expanded our hours to every day. Stop in to meet Wendy and Elaine, who join Ann, Lauren and Carrie at our sweet spot on Front Street.

Artist Charles Goller creates intricately wire-wrapped jewelry from precious gemstones and crystals which he selectively imports world-wide. He also does specialized custom work. He has worked hard to establish trusting connections and cares deeply about his sources; many in small villages around the globe, where the gems are mined by the villagers and contribute to the majority of their income. Recently Charles has been invited to several galleries in Sedona, AZ and Santa Fe, NM and is also supplying a New Zealand store with his work, which keeps him rather busy. However, he does accept commissions. Email him at email@example.com.
