Discover Your Work of Art
January 27, 2015
So you’ve decked out your Waypointe Apartment with the right lighting, the best, comfiest couch, and pieces of furniture that make you happy. There’s just one thing missing - art.
The impact a painting or sculpture has on a room is huge, but it can be tough to figure out what works, what you enjoy, and where to buy it. There are several studios nearby that offer a great selection of art. Check them out, and discover your work of art!
(163 Main St)
This place has triple functionality - it’s a museum (with rare M.C. Escher’s work), gallery, and framing workshop. Not only will you find fine art and photography, you’ll also find American crafts you won’t find anywhere else. All works of art are curated by the owner from all over America. If you’re seeking a piece you could hand down the family line - or just admire every day for yourself - the Artist’s Market is a great place to start.

There’s something incredibly calming about the surface of a pond, isn’t there? Well, nobody paints or photographs water like John Harris. Slow-moving rivers, reflections of trees, dappled lakes in the impressionist style - he’s painted everything but your bath tub. The canvases are typically around 38” 64,” so it still garners attention without overwhelming your space.
