Next year’s show schedule is set, and we couldn’t wait to share the excitement with all of you. We know how quickly summer calendars fill up, so be sure to pencil us in.
In the past, there has been interest expressed in smaller works for the holidays, so that’s what we have done. Over the last few weeks, The Gallery at 14 Western Avenue has been rearranged to help you find just what you need. Much of the first floor is dedicated to “Small Works.” Most pieces are 20” x 20” or smaller and have been grouped by artist. They are easy to find and offer a variety of styles and mediums to meet your tastes. Prices start at $100.

Currently, Winslow does both painting and pottery and belong to several arts and crafts associations. He also participates in numerous shows in the Southern Maine area. His studio is in the lower level of his home where he also maintains an exhibit space.
“The friction of waves wears down form and finish to reveal the hidden structure and burnished surfaces,” he explains. “My studio is crammed with bits and pieces of ceramic trials, failures and wins serving as jumping off points for new artistic expression.”
