Don’t we have an amazing painting spot? We are beginning a wonderful summer of painting! The deck surface is finished; railing will be installed next week. Visit us Thursdays through Saturdays 10 to 4! Consider a class on Tuesdays (afternoon & evening) or Friday afternoons. All artists are welcome to Open Studio every Sunday afternoon, 1 to 4.
For more information, check out www.mayvillewatercolors.com
Our opening is delayed because our deck, ramp and stairs aren’t yet complete. In the meantime the gallery is slowly taking shape. And look at this view! Our first watercolor classes will be held Tuesday June 7 (using temporary stairs if necessary!). We can’t wait to paint in this space!! Sign up for classes below.
We are delighted to announce the state of NY has given Mayville Watercolors permission to open. We are official!

Across the street from the Chautauqua County courthouse at the only streetlight in Mayville, NY is a tiny brick building, built in 1824. My student and friend Laurie Cummings and I are having the time of our lives transforming this 16 x 16′ space into a gallery.
This very special (almost) 200 year old building’s interior has original exposed brick and stucco. Check out the old wall safe, complete with casters, built right into the wall!
In in the next few days we will be open for business selling artwork painted by my local students and myself. We welcome neighbors, art lovers and friends and plan to paint and enjoy this space all summer long!
Here are some photos of friends working hard to make this gallery happen. Thank you Darlene and Tim from the Sweet Spot next door (Best lunch in town!), and thank you Tim, Laurie and Bruce for all your help.
