The Dodwell Gallery is named in honor of James and Shirley Dodwell, island artists. Jim was known for his watercolors. Many islanders own his paintings and treasure them. Shirley worked in a variety of mediums, including Tole painting. The Gallery opened its doors with a show of the work of these two talented artists on July 10th, 2004.
The Dodwell Gallery is located at the Long Island Community Library/Learning Center and is open whenever the Library is open. Most work is for sale, so add this to your shopping spree on your island hopping adventures.
