WILMINGTON- Local artists have been invited to participate in a seasonal gallery space called “The Annex” located at 7 North Main Street. The Annex will be open weekends from Thanksgiving until the end of December plus Black Friday (November 29) from 10 am to 5 pm each day. An array of beautiful art, crafts, and antiques will be presented by these local artists. There will be gifts for all budgets.

The featured artists will be: Linda Anelli, a West Dover resident, whose “style” is totally serendiipitous, incorporating the whimsy, detail, and color of folk art influences

Jeannette Eckert, of East Dover, created Moments in Time Photographs three years ago to explore and share her love of photography with others. Her work depicts New England landscapes, wildlife and floral scenes in an effort to “capture the moments” for a lifetime of enjoyment. Custom orders are also welcome.

Julie Havness, a resident of Wilmington, has hand crafted angels for your tree or home.

Jim Littrell, a resident of Grafton and Philadelphia (formerly West Dover), has established an annex of Jim’s Store which has fine antiques and home furnishings

Jane May Jones is a Readsboro watercolor artist. Jones’ watercolors are impressionistically realistic. She offers original paintings, reproductions, note cards, calendars, and more.

Jessica Kain and Rachel Rodney, residents of Wilmington, make unique adornments from metals, fused glass, and enamels. Their techniques allow them to create custom items with designs, logos, and themes of the customer’s choice.

Nancie McLean, a resident of East Dover, is displaying her Global Monkey earrings - all one-of-a-kind handcrafted pieces made from bits of nature, felt, and/or silver.

Roseate Creations, a Wilmington framery, is offering some of Jim McGrath’s “From my Window” giclees as well as some of Ellie Roden’s pressed flower prints

Linda Sherman, of East Dover, creates primitive hand hooked rugs and penny rugs from 100% wool. The designs are all her own and she can do commissioned work if requested.

Sue Spengler, another artist from Wilmington, has placed some of her winter scenes as well as light-hearted holiday items in the gallery. She painted our big Santa as well as other pieces to be decorating the porch at the gallery as well.

Whether it’a a Vermont landscape, a whimsical or poignant Hearts in Nature collage or just the right card to send to a loved one, Wilmington photographer Nicki Steel has the perfect gift that showcases the region’s beauty and uniqueness.

Todd Wahlstrom, a Whitingham resident, makes wheel thrown, stoneware pottery with textural patterned surfaces. His pots are intended to reveal their subtleties of weight, balance and tactivity through use and over time.

At Wheeler Woven, Karen Wheeler, of Wilmington, creates hand finished, handwoven chenille scarves and shawls. Her brilliant colors and beautiful designs make these items wearable works of art.

Not only are the artists offering spectacular gifts for sale this holiday season, they have offered to help the Deerfield Valley Food Pantry. Food may be dropped off at The Annex location (7 North Main Street first floor) and a percentage of the sales will be donated to the pantry.

Come visit The Annex, another place in the valley to shop for the holidays.
