IMG_3853

Local artist, Peter Shelley hand crafts nautical art and rustic decor from driftwood and reclaimed Ohio barn siding.  The natural elements on the shores of Lake Erie are the influence for his one-of-a-kind works of art.  Peter’s wife, Robin adds her designer’s eye to many of his pieces.

Peter’s creations will bring a rustic, beach-side feel to any room in your home.  His pieces include candle and wine bottle holders, lighthouses, whimsical sculptures, wall art, and miniature ships inspired from historic sailing vessels. Most of these works are the perfect size to display on your tabletop or mantel!

Roger Edgerly ~ Woodworking

 

IMG_3777 Upon retirement from Sandusky City Schools, where he was a teacher and a coach, Roger started building US Post Office banks for his grandchildren, and they love them.

Roger’s US Postal banks are hand constructed from American hardwoods; oak, maple, and hickory.  Each is fitted with a genuine US Post Office box door that has either a key or a working combination to open.  The PO box doors that Roger incorporates into his banks are generally made of brass and were used by the postal system from the 1890’s through the 1960’s.

These US Post Office banks make great gifts for birthdays, holidays, or any other special occasion!

Roger is a local artist who makes his home in Huron with his wife.

Marcello Mellino ~ Photographer

“Art in all its forms has been a very strong intellectual personal motivation throughout the years, so my ongoing maturation and growth as a Fine Art photographer seems quite natural, and at the same time very challenging and exciting! The process of photographic imagery ” creation” goes much further than the simple ” taking” of the photograph, since it necessitates a good amount of vision, creativity and curiosity, besides all the technical attributes, and I find immense satisfaction in the sequence leading from that initial “moment of vision” to the final printing act, which is the perfect culmination for a fleeting instant to become permanent reality.”

Marcello is a native of Italy, so naturally a lot of his images are from “home”, which enables us to travel vicariously through his captured sights and events.

She has exhibited her paintings in many galleries throughout the United States and Canada. Janine states, “When I am painting, I often lose track of time.
