600 Market Street, Johnsonburg, Pa 15845
in the Historic Johnsonburg Community Center
I opened the gallery up in 2006. This photo is from Christmas Openhouse 2006 with Linda Pontzer as the feature, the jewelry I was turning out were asymmetrical large stone/glass beaded designs, beaded figure sculptures w/a fiber base and bead embroidered felt brooches and I was also 'focused' on food vignette style photography.
The gallery has gone through quite a few changes in the last 5 years, for instance, initially every two months a new featured artist filled the entire wall space, I was not yet a PA Wilds Trail stop, my studio was on the 3rd floor and I had Stitch and Bitch gatherings on Thursday mornings at 10.
The gallery now has permanent artists with a wall section for features, I am a PA Wilds Trail stop and juried artist, the work studio is in my home garden and I am centric on metalsmithing with cold connections, torch work and fusing.
The gallery played host to 20 featured artists and 4 themed shows during the last 5 years covering many mediums including oils, watercolors, mosaics, photography, beadart, ACEOs and wood carvings.
I have plans on putting together an artisan jewelry show in the gallery with several fabulous bead artists, metalsmiths and mixed media artists.
I want to see more classes in gallery and at my home studio to share the wonderful happiness we jewelry artisans all have found in creating from beginner to advanced levels given by different artisans including myself.
a photo of the nook in 2006, this lovely little spot now is home to a sitting area composed of an antique sofa and a lovely hand carved chair donate from the Cotters of St. Marys.

Home Vignette Thursday: Christmas 2010 taken on pie safe, you see my kitchen tree covered in antique, vintage and retro potholders, terrariums and a corduroy elephant which was created from my eldest dd baby blue pants she wore in middle school. I wish I had time to make more of these nostalgic stuffies :(
With the Holidays pretty much here the work is coming everyday with metalstamped and forged pendants, bracelets, tiered neckpieces, earrings and rrrrrrrings. New works along with artisan favorites are being created at a crazeeee pace. Orders are also being filled and sent out all over the country with sweet sentiments to my dear clients in all forms. A return customer coupon was sent out in the recent newsletter. If you were missed just contact me.
A Christmas Openhouse is being planned for November 20th at the Flemish House Art Gallery and Jewelry Studio 1pm to 6:30pm. There will be artist displays featuring artists from all over the region, new artisan jewelry and Patricia Eckstrom's new framed mixed media work. Eckstrom is setting up in gallery for that day!
A new pottery artists is joining the mix in the gallery Stacie Johnson Leske! This artist has just been juried into the PA Wilds Artisan Trail!! I am so excited to carry her gorgeous and delicate work in the gallery :)
A look at the gallery from 2006 with a more traditional gallery featuring Artist Linda Pontzer where she filled the entire space. I now feature over a dozen artists with a designated space for the feature.
Another photo with feature Pete Winklbauer in the newer layout of the gallery around April 2011. The set-up is geared more towards a single feature in this area and then regional along with PA Wilds juried artisans filling the other spaces on a regular bases with change outs seasonally.
