Anne Tochka is a contemporary painter living and working on Cape Cod. Her paintings are an immersion in nature originating from her ambles about the Cape and frequently from plein air studies. Through her work, Anne strives to convey a feeling that places the viewer not just in that location, but in that specific moment in time. Anne will have original paintings, prints of her Cape Cod Sunset Series, and a new series of large giclee prints.


Erin A. Ellis is an artist based in Somerville, MA. She graduated from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY and received a BFA in Illustration. She works mostly in pen and ink and watercolor. Erin draws, paints, prints, and packages her work all out of her in-home studio under the watchful eye of her cat Ralph. Erin will have greeting cards, postcards, paperdolls, and ornaments.


Liz Welch is a ceramic artist living and working in Providence RI. She is also the founder of Anyhow Studio, a supportive and inclusive community ceramics studio. Her work is colorful, and utilitarian, and aims to bring a little humor and lightness into your everyday rituals.
