Great News! I am now part of the artist cooperative "Village Faire" located at 83 Brown Street in Wickford! This great little shop is located on the wharf behind Beach Rose Café where the Midnight Sun used to be. (For fellow Midnight Sun fans, no worries! They simply relocated to Main Street!) There are 20+ local artists and artisans participating, and the members list keeps changing and expanding. A large portion of participants come to us courtesy of the Shady Lea Mill, which houses studios for dozens artists and crafters in a historic complex. Among the art items at Village Faire are illustrators and painters such as my old teach Mr. Paine, and some handmade pottery items. Some of my favorite pieces are handmade jewelry featuring local sea glass and genuine pearls. Lots of antiques and vintage items, some great books, Rhode Island Spa Products, sea shell ornaments, cast bronze home décor... the list goes on and on!
I will be featuring some fine art pieces plus some small photography products, such as my new release "Oceanview", some small America's Cup posters, and Greeting Cards! Inventory is always coming and going so if you get a chance to stop in and check it out, be sure to browse through my section in the middle of the shop. Or swing by when I'm working on Wednesday afternoons!
This truly is a great opportunity and I'm incredibly thankful for the Village Faire participants for providing me with this great outlet!
