This lovely photo of The Art Shop marquee was taken in March of 1989. Lenny and I had just purchased The Art Shop from his dad, Stan Dolin, who had owned it since 1964. My, how young we were! Lenny has less hair now (a lot less) and I no longer have a hideous perm. I’m posting this marquee memory for a reason – to announce our retirement effective ...

This Sunday will be Andy’s 15 year anniversary at The Art Shop! When Gallery Director Andy McAfee joined The Art Shop on July 1, 1997, his goal was to help make The Art Shop an award-winning internationally known art and framing gallery.

You never know when you’re going to bump into history.  Lenny and I were walking our dogs in our new neighborhood when we stopped to talk to a neighbor.  She knew we owned The Art Shop, so she said, “Wait – I have something to show you.”  Her father had passed away recently and she was in the process of cleaning out his house, ...

If you’ve never had cancer nor know anyone who has or had it, consider yourself lucky.  Also, consider yourself to be part of a very small minority.  Statistics tell us less than 10% of the population falls into this category. This is certainly true at The Art Shop.  I just lost my spunky 88-year-old mother to this dreaded disease in ...

I thought it might be fun to introduce each member of The Art Shop staff by letting them tell you what they love to do (as related to The Art Shop).  Since I’m the one writing most of the blogs, I guess I’ll start with me.

Did you hear about the woman from Concord who, while shopping for a blanket at a local Goodwill store, found two large canvases selling for $9.99 each?  She thought the pieces were ugly and dated, but bought them to paint over since she was an artist herself and canvas that size is expensive.  Her friends noticed a sticker on the back of ...
