Artisan Of The Month
Welcome Our New Artisan Of The Month Jackie Gladstein!!!!
For the entire month of March her beautiful works of art will be on display in our gallery space. So stop on by and support our local artisan community!

Artisan Bio: Jackie Gladstein lives off a long dirt road near Mt Holyoke State Park. She works in pediatrics, and will start a PA master’s program in June 2016. Known mainly as Jackie, but born Jaclyn Gladstein, you will often find her hiking with Ash (dog, 4, male) in the morning. She recently turned 25, but still hasn’t made it above 61″. Jackie likes spending her time painting, and has recently been using her brushes mainly for watercolors. Jackie enjoys nature, both the wild and domesticated, seen in many of her pieces. Her love of fruits and vegetables comes through in some of her work shown at Groundings. She also loves science fiction books and movies, and would be an excellent addition to any apocalyptic survivor group, despite being nearsighted.
