European Artistry Nurtured in Utah
With family roots in Europe, these local artists pursue art forms that were not only part of their youth but also represent significant aspects of their cultural inheritance. They continue to create this traditional artistry both as a statement of who they are and where they came from and as an expression of personal creativity.
Anne Carroll Gilmour – Scotttish Tartan Weaving
Ingrid Hersman – European Decorated Eggs
Hella Pope – European Decorative Painting

We have added 3 new Jacob Ewes to our little family at the farm! We are so excited to welcome Megan, Carmen and Niambh to start our flock of registered Jacob sheep, a rare heritage breed that we are only too happy to perpetuate. We are hoping for new lambs this Spring and a great source of beautiful multi-hued wool very close at hand (these sheep live right next to Anne’s new weaving studio, in fact!) This is our lamb Niambh (pronounced sort of like ‘Nee-ahhv’) -upclose & personal. This photo is courtesy of her breeder Dawn Stuart of Bear Creek Farm in Bend, Oregon: http://www.bearcreekfarm.org/jacob-sheep.php
We are also busy setting up the 16-shaft AVL in its new home here in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. After the long journey from Utah we are anxious to start weaving again!
