East Hill Gallery is now open with regular weekend hours. That’s 11-5 Saturdays and 1-5 Sundays. Other times are possible by appointment by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 585 554-3539. Of course we will continue to follow protocols that make it safe and relaxing for all.
The East Hill Gallery is filled with unique pieces in turned wooden bowls and kitchenware, clothing design, weaving, stoneware and porcelain pottery, greeting cards, and recordings of our music.
In addition, the Guild artisans in pottery and woodworking will display their work this weekend on the front lawn. On July 11, from 1 to 4 pm, you will be able to view and buy pottery from Annie Schliffer and woodware from David Barnet outside under the shady maples and chestnuts.
This is a first time chance to see and handle Folk Art Guild crafts in the open air, and have a chance to speak with the makers. The pottery will feature large pieces, spectacular wood fired vases and jars, big platters and bowls perfect for serving summer salads or for bread making. They will exhibit an assortment of studio ware including mugs, bowls, teapots, plates, vases, ikebana containers, and much more.
By popular request the pottery will also have a table of seconds, half priced items and discounts.
The Woodshop specializes in hardwood salad bowls from local trees. Smaller nut bowls and cups are available, too. Some of the unusual woods found “on the hunt” include pagoda tree (Canandaigua) and osage orange (Bushnells Basin and Romulus). There are also gifts such as backscratchers, dibbles, saute spoons, and salad servers.
In the case that you don’t see what you need, David is open to making special requests.
During the afternoon, the East Hill Gallery is open with more of the Guild crafts, 1-5 pm.
