Josh Hannon joins the Gallery

We are excited that Josh has joined the gallery artists!  Stop by to see his beautiful work.

 

 

Josh Hannon is a woodworker from Greenfield MA.  All of his work features individual strips of various domestic and exotic wood species, laminated together to make visually exciting patterns.  Josh makes a variety of different pieces from cutting boards to coasters and other types of home decor meant to be as beautiful as they are useful.

 

Welcoming Jeannie Donovan to the Gallery

A big welcome to Jeannie Donovan who has now set up her display of wonderful paintings at the gallery.

Jeannie is a painter who works in watercolor, acrylic, and handmade paperpulp, a technique she learned as an apprentice at Rugg Road Handmade Paper studio in Boston. Her unique pulp paintings do not have any ‘paint’ at all, but are created by layering many shapes and lines of pigmented pulps. The fibers bond in the drying process, creating the final textured piece. Her work is inspired by travel to Europe, Mexico, the Caribbean, and the rural landscapes and architecture of New England. She is excited to join the Sawmill River Gallery collaborative, where she displays her original artwork along with prints and notecards.

Stop by and check out Jeannie’s work!
