Fredericks: Now Represented by the Stockdale Mill Gallery

Its the dream of every new painter to one day reach a level in their ability where a gallery accepts their works. Thanks to Bell Byrne, who introduced me to Janet Battaglio, owner of the Stockdale Mill Gallery - I gained an opportunity to present my portfolio for inspection. To my delight Janet selected some 20 paintings.

Stockdale Mill Gallery is located in one of two charming old mills which sit opposite each other,on Cold Creek. One was a sawmill and the other a grist mill. The gallery is in the refurbished grist mill and is located in the hamlet of Stockdale, a few kilometers west of Frankfort, in eastern Ontario. These communities are not too far north of Bellville and Trenton.

The mills are treasured local historical buildings and have been painted and repainted by many, including, as I was told, one of the noted Keirstead family painters.

Its with much appreciation that I take this opportunity to thank both Janet and Bell, Joan Riley (see the right side panel),Maggie Tainsh,Diana Britt, Stephen Snider, and the many others who saw potential in my fumbling fist.
