Ruth Hartman (a jeweler) and Jon Fernans (a sculptor) opened the Little Pond Gallery on Orr’s Island, Maine during the summer of 2013.
“We had always wanted an art gallery to showcase our work and that of our friends. We are thrilled that we could realize this dream,” says Ruth, who is not new to the gallery world. Having worked in Chicago at Landfall Press and the Phyllis Kind Gallery, as well as doing a summer internship in the Print and Drawing Department of the Art Institute in Chicago, she is an experienced curator with a distinctive eye.
Little Pond Gallery is filled with an exciting collection of jewelry, stone sculpture, watercolors, pastels, oil paintings, scrimshaw and furniture created by nine talented artists whose work celebrates the spirit of Maine. Ruth and Jon pride themselves on offering an eclectic mix of high quality work at reasonable prices.
Located in a pristine environment with expansive ocean views and gourmet restaurants, Little Pond Gallery lives within a vibrant community of fisherman, artists, craftspeople and musicians.
