I just got off the phone with Sandra Waldner, the co-owner, along with her artist husband, Peter Waldner, of Wish Rock Studio, a charming gallery on Shelter Island where some of my work is shown.
The gallery is housed in a small row house in the historic town area called the Heights located right in the center of the island. It was once someone's home and a homey quality continues to pervade its welcoming atmosphere which is a combination of the physical characteristics of the gallery and the very warm presence of its owners.
The gallery contains a nice mix of artwork and sculpture by a number of artists and a selection of Peter Waldner's paintings and prints. It also has a framing section at the back, and sells artist created notecards (including some of mine), books, and other small gift items. Among the books is one self-published by my son, Jordan Tarlow, called Shelter Island Shingle.
