The weather is changing and clocks are getting set back, which means the holidays are coming. It's going to be a whirlwind couple of weeks, as I will be participating in multiple events! Come join me at one or all of them to experience some fun and get a jumpstart on your holiday shopping.

Here's where I'll be:

Dover Art Walk - Friday, November 1st

The Dover Art Walk takes place the first Friday of every month in downtown Dover, NH. I'll be a visiting artist  this coming Friday, November 1st from 4-8PM and will have a selection of prints, cards, magnets, 2020 bird calendars, and totes on hand.  Here are the details:

Take a tour of Downtown Dover's thriving arts community, while enjoying live music and entertainment, and Dover's bustling restaurants and shops.

USM Craft Show  - Saturday & Sunday, November 9th & 10th

The USM Craft Show is a fun annual event that is packed with great gift options for that special someone (or for yourself!). This two-day event takes place at the Costello Sports Complex in Gorham, ME. What makes this event more special is that I'm a USM Alum!

I'll be returning to my alma mater with prints, cards, magnets, 2020 calendars, and totes available at special pricing. This is a widely popular event that's not to be missed!

The Marginal Way in Ogunquit, Maine is perhaps one of the most popular coastal walks in New England. This scenic path meanders the rocky coast from quaint Perkins Cove to the sandy shore of Ogunquit Beach just over a mile away. Numerous benches are sprinkled along the pathway allowing visitors to sit and gaze out at the vast expanse of the Atlantic Ocean.

While it’s a stunning view at any time, I enjoy walking the Marginal Way the most in the off season when a storm is brewing off the coast, causing the surf to roil and the waves to crash into the rocks in a dramatic way. It’s a truly mesmerizing, meditative experience taking in the sweeping view and filling my lungs with the salty air. I’ve spent my entire life living near the ocean and when I am away from it for too long, I can feel the absence in my heart and soul. To be able to visit it when I need to is something that I never take for granted.

There’s a bronze plaque inscribed with the words of John Muir that captures the essence of this beautiful spot perfectly: “Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and cheer, and give strength to body and soul alike”.

Prints are now available in three sizes in my Lehoux Art online shop and my Etsy Shop.

Maine Craft Weekend is an annual statewide tour of Maine craft studios, businesses and events. Maine Craft Weekend offers an opportunity for the public to explore the life and work of craft artists and businesses in Maine, and for artists to connect with craft enthusiasts, collectors and visitors behind-the-scenes. This is an educational, community-oriented and family-friendly event for all.

I'll be at the Zwellyn Pottery Studio this Saturday from 10am to 2pm - details below on the entire weekend's events!
