Opening Day – Chapin Studio/Gallery @ Stoneridge

Opening Day

Well Opening Day was full of surprises, well wishers and conversations.  Lots of interesting things in the mix.

As I was doing this video tour of the debut showing of works at my new studio, it occurred to me that this is actually a journal of my travels. And what a journey it has been for the past 40 years to this place and I can’t wait to see what happens during the next 30.  After 2 years of building and lots of repair work, Covid, a 5 year moving process and a zillion other hurdles,  I’m finally opening my studio.  Yeah!! I don’t have a ceiling in yet (apologies) and my carpenter quit working  but I’m daring to be imperfect and hope wherever you are now that you have a chance to visit soon.  I had set the date for 21st of May, 2021 because of the 21.  But  I realized yesterday that it was my father’s birthday.  I wish he could’ve seen it.

It’s really difficult to actually convey what art feels like in person through a video but is the best I can do.  I noticed that the interior colors on my desktop weren't nearly as rich but eh what can I say.  If you know someone who loves collecting or has a home in Maine let them know.  Spread the word. Thanks.

Directions to my studio are on my website under Make an appointment which takes you to the bottom of the page and map, as well as a link to my Google business page and contact information etc.  If you have any questions feel free to DM me.

The challenge

Getting to Know Me

As part of the journey through the coast of Maine, getting to know the coast of Maine and people getting to know me,  I am doing a series of LIVE on Instagram painting sessions.  I'm naturally reticent to be in front of the camera but willing to appear a little foolish as I learn how to do this.  Technology not always being cooperative and some days forgetting my words at home.
