The Periwinkle Shop

We have carved out space at WAG to revive The Periwinkle Shop, now open during classes and by appointment at 1740 Main Road, Westport Point, MA.

The original Periwinkle Shop was in operation from 1966 to 1972, April through September. WAG members sold handcrafted items and artwork. Volunteers staffed the small store, located across from the Westport Point post office.

Member Artists and Artisans are invited to sell their artwork in the shop. Contact WAG at info@westportartgroup.com if you are interested in adding your artwork or handcrafted items to the shop.

About the Artists

Dartmouth painter Christine Bean taught art early in life but has been painting most of her life. Her beautiful watercolors depict the landscapes, seascapes and scenes from the South Coast, Maine and Cape Cod. To this day, she continues to paint.

A Fine Arts graduate of Swain School of Design, Dennis Broadbent is known for his mastery in both oils and pastels. After retiring, he returned to his art, enjoying Plein Air painting and figure drawing. His brilliantly detailed still life paintings are treasures.

Meredith Wildes Cornell, another Swain School of Design graduate, has an extensive exhibit record and has won numerous awards. For many years, she shared her considerable skills by teaching classes at the Westport Art Group. Her vigorous brush strokes and strong palette give substance to her paintings.

Sharlie Sudduth began painting seriously in retirement. Her lively brushwork and colors are a delight to view and impart a sense of joy. Through her work in watercolor and oils, she shares the pleasure of her painting experience.
