The Chaplains opened their first shop on Charles Street on Beacon Hill, and after several Boston locations, moved the business to Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

In that journey began their love affair with all things Asian.

Exhibition Reception & Refreshments: Sunday, September 11, Noon – 3PM Also accepting phone and absentee bids.  Carol Summers (1925–2016) of Santa Cruz, California, was an American printmaker, well known for creating works by woodcut process.

Looking at Summers’ work, it is not hard to understand why he was drawn to the vibrancy of color in the folk textiles of India.
