George Pearlman’s one of a kind porcelain vessels have been shown all over the world. He has been potting for almost 40 years and has been recognized by many institutions for his work. The Smithsonian and Philadelphia museum of art have shown his work and he has been recognized as an individual artist fellow by the Maine arts commission. His pottery in Saint George, Maine, has a beautiful showroom where you can see and purchase his work.
A fixture in the village of Port Clyde for over 10 years, the gallery has a wide variety of work from many artists. We feature works in oils and acrylic, prints, metal sculpture, found object sculpture, photography, jewelry, cards, pottery and pastels. Four guest artists also show their work during the summer with opening receptions on Friday nights, open to the public.
Right in Tenants Harbor, overlooking Ripleys Creek and next to Granite Gallery is Spruce Tree Studio (at The Metal Shop). A locally Historic building revived into a creative retail space embracing the Metal shops origins, an homage to hand work and trade.
Yarn, patterns, hand tufted and crafted products, original artwork, and a collection of works by local artists and makers. I always have a project going on whether it be knitting, punch needle or spinning and am happy to demonstrate!
I look forward to seeing you, and am taking names for Fall Punch Needle Workshops.

Port Clyde is rich with history of generations of fishermen as well as Wyeth family artists. Take one of three onboard art tours in the newly refitted authentic lobster boat, Linderin Losh, with our captain and tour guide—who will pull up a lobster trap or two on your excursion—to see many viewpoints captured in famous Wyeth paintings.
Message from Linda:
We depart on 2.5 hour excursions in my 42-foot lobster boat built by one of Maine’s historic designers, Royal Lowell, refitted with Coast Guard approval to accommodate up to 20 guests. Captain Dennis Leight and our Wyeth tour guide Rayette Hudon will describe the Wyeth summer home/studio (“Eight Bells” since 1920) and introduce you to their words and feelings as they described painting here. We’ll take you to the sites of emotionally powerful fine art paintings by Andrew Wyeth and Jamie Wyeth, and show you how N.C. Wyeth incorporated Port Clyde area images into classic book and American textbook illustrations, and into Coca-Cola ads in the 1930s and 40s.
