Give the gift of original art from Eastport while shopping locally (and safely in your pajamas!) this holiday season. Today we spotlight three member artists whose work is featured in Eastport Gallery’s online holiday market.
Member Susan Moore got her start in photography at a very young age, “At 18 months old, my photographer father put a small brownie camera in my hands. I learned photography at his knee, 12 foil wrapped possibilities at a time.”
Fairly new to the area, Susan’s love of Eastport is evident in her photographic works available in the Gallery’s online holiday market. Sue also opened “The Little Studio by the Bay” next door to the gallery in March 2020. The studio is a beautiful addition to Water Street and will eventually be open for sittings. We can’t wait!

The island city and its wealth of sea glass has been influencing retired counselor Barbara Moskol’s pottery practice for 20 years. Barbara began her pottery training 50 years ago in Connecticut, and her art continues to evolve. Much of her work is inspired by this place, the sea glass and the colors that surround her. New to the Eastport Gallery in 2020, her work can be found in the online holiday market. Thanks to gallery member Lora Whelan for her indepth article on Barbara and her work on page 8 of the November 13 Quoddy Tides.
