Wow, it has been an incredibly busy week but look at these lovely shots Kristiiina captured last week at the their lifestyle shoot here at the Inn! It was a pleasure working with these two local talents and thanks so much for the lovely mention here. Don’t forget to check them out on facebook (here and here) and visit Kristiina’s blog.
Thanks to everyone who came to the Literary club last night to discuss “Suite Francaise”–what a fascinating, horrifying, and brave book. We will post next month’s book on Monday.
Have a great weekend!
Lifestyle shoot at the Inn
Yesterday we were thrilled to host Gosia Meyer Jewelry and Kristiina Sheree Photography for a lifestyle photo shoot at the Inn. It is exciting to have such incredible talent in the area and we can’t wait to see some of the pictures from their shoot. Check out their Facebook pages here and here for more information and like their pages. We hope to share some of the photos once they are released.

Talent in our midst
I continue to marvel at the talent that abides in our little town of aproximately 3,700 (not sure on the exact number). This past week N8 and I were in the studio of sculptor, Lawrence J Nowlan right here in town. He is currently working an impressively large piece for his hometown, Philadelphia, of legendary Philies broadcastor, Harry Kalas. He has been working full time on this project in his main street church-converted studio since Thanksgiving.
As it reads on his website, “He came to his interest in sculpture through a chance encounter with the works of Auguste Rodin in Philadelphia.” As you take in his studio, the beauty of a Rodin is evident but Nowlan has a style unique to himself. In 1995 the artist was invited to serve as the Artist in Residence at the Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site, in Cornish, NH right across the river from Windsor and has kept a studio in the area ever since. His list of clients is varied from local work to co-creating the VH1 My Music award in 2001 among many many others.
A peruse of his website and you’ll see what I mean. Yesterday when I was in there, he was working on a Bas Relief for the in University of California that incredible to watch as he created something where there was nothing. His studio is like a museum/graveyard of sculptures, busts, and reliefs (even a Relief that was commissioned for Oprah and a Death Mask of Lincoln’s face).
So exciting to have such incredible talent in our town.
