Watercolour, ink, acrylic, and pencil are used in work ranging from land and seascapes to surrealistic fantasies, impressionistic watercolours and drawings.

Demo: Watercolour techniques in progress.

Jerome has been a professional watercolourist, illustrator, and graphic designer since 1978. Over the years, Jerome’s work has ranged from land and seascapes to surrealistic fantasies, impressionistic watercolours, and drawings. He has taught watercolour and drawing classes at the Sunbury Shores Art Center in St. Andrews and has personally offered many workshops. His work is represented in many American and Canadian corporate and private collections. Jerome in speaking about this work says, “Art emerges from the artist’s deepest creative self. It must include, but transcends, good technique. My work describes, through my realistic landscapes, simplicity of life that exists both in reality (sometimes) and in longing. At the other end of the spectrum, my abstract work reflects the complex and unresolved mysteries of life that continue to baffle human beings.”

In Leonardville, across from the Church of Christ to Doughty’s Lane, the gallery, (with a red steel roof), is about 150 yards on the right on Clines Point Road at the bottom of the hill.

Flameworked/lampworked glass beads & sterling silver jewellery.

I have been a full time glass artist since the late 80s. In the last 20 years, my work has evolved from huge windows and fused pieces to tiny little beads, which I call Fireballs because they look like little balls of fire as they are being made. I turn most of my flameworked glass beads into one-of-a kind jewellery pieces, which can be found in a number of East Coast galleries.

You've all heard of ‘taking the road less traveled’. Well, I have taken the road through the wilderness that no one else has traveled. Along the way I made many inadvertent discoveries. I believe that the motion I see in all living things--that which animates and forms a telling gesture--equates with Emotion. I see an Emotion that lifts moves and elates and it is this Emotion that is at the center of who and what we are--a dynamic part of the human spirit and of all that really matters. It makes the world beautiful and it makes us happy.

Photography and Graphic Arts

Demo: fine art giclée printing of photos on canvas.

The serenity of still waters, the hush of the forest floor, these are my inspiration and my art. As a photographer, my works search out quiet beaches, rolling hills, and uncomplicated life forms.

The Cappuccino Gallery and Gardens is home to my graphic arts studio and fine art giclée printing operation. It is the blending of technical expertise with a creative eye.

My imagery is inspired by the restorative power of quiet, gentle, yet joyous beauty - the harmonic intertwining of nature and the human heart. It gives me pause and a sense of being part of something wonderful, something transforming. Journeying through my own chattering mind and our too frequently fast-paced world, this experienced beauty allows me serenity. This is what I want to express through my art. Intuitively this beauty turns into metaphors and my sculptures, paintings, and digital art prints fill with soul illuminated, magical beings, soaring birds, and metamorphosing butterflies.

Originally from New York, I have lived and pursued my work as an artist in Eastport, Maine for over 25 years. My work can be seen in several galleries through out the state and I am a member of the Maine Sculptors and the New England Sculptors Association.

Large-scale thrown ceramic sculpture and ceramic home accessories.

Demo: Explaining techniques of creating my work.

In my work, symbolic form is created by means of mass and volume. The basic vocabulary utilizes plane surfaces which capture or modulate light and hollow spaces to evoke the mystery of dark inner sanctums--grotto, cavern, catacomb, labyrinth--the regenerative womb or--the ultimate void--the choice is the beholder’s. On another level, I attempt to show the echoes and correspondences between artifacts of culture/technology and elements of biological/geological provenance: alike, all a manifestation of nature.

Artist statement:
While visiting the petroglyph sites, I observed the young Passamaquoddy students gathering up clay from the bank, picking shells from the flats, catching crabs in the seaweed. All of them took off their shoes, as they were instructed, and waded in the tide pool and along the edge of the shoreline. My latest artwork was in recapturing these moments.

Handmade paper art.

Demo: Introduction to creating a piece of handmade paper using a variety of pulps with a mold and deckle.

Jenepher Hooper is a hand-made paper artist with a theatre and film background. In the theatre there is always a story to be told. In paper art she also likes to capture stories. The act of creating an image in paper fascinates her. "From the initial idea through the many layers of the creative process I am always engaged with an image and a story demanding to be expressed. My challenge is to create a picture out of the wet medium of paper pulp.” Jenepher tells her stories in paper in Ottawa, Ontario and Chamcook, New Brunswick. Her pieces are included in personal art collections in North America, Europe and the UK.

Approximately 11km from St. Andrews heading toward Saint John, turn off Route 127 at the Saint John end of the Glebe Road. The studio (blue) is about 1 km on the waterside.

Traditional rughooking, with wool fabric and yarn on burlap or linen.

Demo: The art and craft of traditional rughooking, creating geometric, pictorial and abstract images with as-is recycled or hand-dyed wools and yarns.

Maureen is a member of the Quoddy Loopers, a St. Andrews group of keen traditional rughookers, enjoying the infinite play of colours and textures, working with wool fabric and yarn to create expressions of life & nature in all its many moods. A lifelong textile artist, Maureen has been rughooking for six years and expects to be hooking for many more. Loops are what make a rughooked mat--one simple action--making the craft an easy one to learn, yet giving an astonishing breadth of expression and individuality to each person’s design, with an infinite palette possible through dyeing wools. Maureen will be demonstrating the art and craft of rughooking--simple, endlessly variable--and selling rughooking patterns & kits, as well as finished mats.

Stone, wood, pewter, bronze

Demo: Various techniques used to create my stone bowls from the creation of blanks to the final finishing. A collection of bowls will be on display as well as my bronze and stone sculpture.

Creations in Stone is back in operation in its new studio, I blend art and craft using bronze, pewter and exotic woods as accents for my turned stone bowls. The bowls are very thin, allowing the light to accentuate the beauty of the stone. The alabaster, serpentine and anhydrite stone I use has been collected from quarries in the Maritimes.

From Highway 127-S, turn onto Harkness Road. Proceed about 1 mile, turn right on St. Andrews Rd North (only intersection on this road). The studio is at #31 and is visible from the road.

Digital photography

Demo: Mounting work in progress

Beauty is not hard to find on the Passamaguoddy Bay. I was fortunate enough to grow up in Letete, delighting in the pure freshness of the Atlantic Ocean, and the simple goodness of the people who speckle her shores. My interest in photography was born in capturing family events, and then caught fire when the lens turned outward to our amazing habitat. This corner of the world is a fresh gift to be savored, like new stories shared amongst old friends. I will be a guest at the Sara Sparks Studio Gilmor Coach House Gallery located at 17 Clinch Street, St. George, New Brunswick.

Sculpture

Demo: Construction of a sculpture.

I am interested in the history of objects; where did this come from and what is its story? I often use domestic or utilitarian objects transformed in my sculptures and installations to explore issues surrounding the environment, labour, gender, rural living and isolation. I am interested in the poetics of the banal.

Watercolour painting.

Demo: Watercolour painting in progress.

Anne Hill enjoys painting mostly out of doors along the shores of Charlotte County, NB. She is also a biologist working with the Department of Agriculture & Aquaculture, St. George. Her love of the natural world shines out from her watercolours. Her work is on display in a cottage next to her home, over looking a magnificent view of the Maguadavic River / Passamaquoddy Bay estuary.

Leave St. George along L'Etete Road (towards Deer Island). You pass an Irving station when leaving town. The road forks. Take the right fork. This is the Mascarene Road and also the alternate route to Deer Island. Look for the number 613 on the mailbox. The house and the studio/cottage are across the road from the mailbox.

Oils on canvas.

Demo: A work will be in progress.

I have been painting professionally for over 30 years. While my subject matter may vary, my style is representational. For some time, I’ve been exploring the world of animals. There’s an emotional component in my work. I feel that if I’ve ‘done my job’ as an artist the viewer will sense this and respond to these subjects as sentient beings that are to be included as fellow travellers on our little blue planet.

In St. George, travelling on Main Street watch for the Country Market on one side with the St. Marks Anglican Church on the opposite side. This church is at the corner of Clinch and Main Streets. Turn onto Clinch, immediately ahead is the large yellow sign for Gillmor's Coach House Gallery.
