May 21: Ever wanted to be a fly on the wall in an artist’s studio? Here is a chance-of-a-lifetime opportunity for a personal home and studio tour led by a highly successful local artist and teacher. From work spaces to works-in-progress, you’ll learn about the artist’s processes and inspiration, hear stories of world travels, and view the work of other local artists. All of this will take place in a pastoral setting with water views. Did we mention the caboose?

June 18: Exquisite proportions, soaring ceilings, and a serene water view set the perfect stage for our hosts’ diverse yet harmonious collection. Works of art by Gillian Bull, Claudia McKinstry, Pamela Wachtler Fermanis, Kim Murton, and numerous other area artists are thoughtfully placed to create themed vignettes and make bold statements. Enter the living room and see a vast, dramatic Christopher Mathie abstract; head up the stairs for a series of witty antique hunting prints. Small spaces surprise and delight at every turn.
