We schedule new shows monthly and send a big thanks to all the artists who have adorned our walls this past year.

Currently on Display – Kristen Ringman

Kristen Ringman is a deaf artist, author, and wanderer. Her paternal family came from Sweden & Finland before they immigrated to America, so the title of her art business draws upon these origins as well as her studies in Norse shamanism and the fox as one of her animal familiars. She is perpetually inspired by animals, nature, world mythology, and her wanderings to far off countries like India, Thailand, and Iceland. Acrylic paint is her current preferred medium and she loves to paint on wood panels & wood rounds. Kristen uses 16 gauge copper wire for hanging most of her paintings and leather cording for the smallest ones. She’s been drawn to metallic accents lately, so many of her paintings have copper painted edges. Kristen is also the author of two Lambda Literary Finalist books: I STOLE YOU: Stories from the Fae (Handtype Press 2017) and MAKARA: a novel (Handtype Press 2012).

If you’d like to contact her directly for commissions or to ask about a painting you don’t see here, feel free to reach out to her via email: krisnwillow@gmail.com or text message her cell: 401-300-7790.

Promoting the Visual Arts

The Stone Church has a long history of promoting the visual arts, starting with Jessica Alford, the muralist who painted the iconic portraits of the  beloved musicians on the outside of windows. Jessica grew up in Dover and had just graduated from Chester College of New England with her BFA when she approached the current owners (Peter, Paul, John and Chris) for work.  She started with flyers but moved on to the murals.  They decided upon musicians that would be easily recognizable and colorful, and Jessica drew preliminary sketches with an Art Nouveau and Gothic look to them. They wanted to represent the look of stained glass.  It took Jessica about 2 years to complete the project.

Jessica Alford wishes to “thank Peter and Paul for the opportunity for being able to showcase the images on the Stone Church years back and the back bone, Fred W. Cole Sr. who taught me how to do it! She also wants to thank all the subsequent owners for keeping them up for so long. One more big thank you goes out “for the support of my family, the town of Newmarket and all the patrons for enjoying all the work! “Thank you Jessica!  You’ve helped put Stone Church on the map!
