FARMING, ART in NEW HAMPSHIRE

I have just returned from Rindge, New Hampshire which is on the south central border of the state where I helped Blaine set up his new studio and discussed his upcoming project. He and his partner Paige and their daughter Sylvia have recently moved into a farmhouse built in the early 20th century. His studio is on the second level of the attached barn which was traditionally used for hay storage during the winter. Blaine instead plans to use the ground floor for his hay along with the rest of his farm paraphernalia. While there, my limited strengths were also put to use for bush clearing, post setting, fence building, horse tending, and various other chores regularly performed by country folk!

Coup's gallery space has an ongoing exhibit of works by Blaine. Stop by and check out the adjusted prices compiled in an effort to assist Blaine in his exciting New England venture. I don't post regular hours but plan to be at the gallery on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday afternoons. Call or text me at 504-722-0876 if you'd like to make sure that I'm there when you plan to visit !
