Through accident or design, you've arrived at the website for Huckleberry Farm Studios. We are Deborah DeWit, artist, and Carl Vandervoort, filmmaker.
Please wander through the results of our 35 year love of image making, past and recent paintings, pastels, photographs, books and films. Here you will also be able to read about the ongoing restoration of Huckleberry Farm, the gone wild land and rustic but stately house we purchased in 2009. A project of creation and love, it is a central part of both our lives and our careers, and continues to inspire images and stories. I hope you enjoy visiting our world. Please contact me with questions or comments. I'd love to hear from you.
Exhibitions & Events
Happy New Year! We are looking forward to another productive and spirited year here at Huckleberry Farm Studios. 2016 was a busy one with shows and classes, along with the ongoing restoration of our home and land. We finished our barn building and held a metal workshop in it as well as two painting workshops is the studio itself. We converted our old workshop into a pottery studio where Carl is now throwing clay on the wheel. As we enter 2017 we're planning our schedule for the year and will soon be able to post dates for classes and studio shows. In the meantime, we're enjoying the chilly days, consuming our firewood at record pace while working in our studios.
Deborah and Carl
Thanks for visiting the website!
In August of 2009 Carl and I visited the small beach town of Manzanita on the North Coast of Oregon where Carl had shared a holiday home for many years. On a whim, we took a slightly different route, heading further south from there to a place where Carl bought flowers at a roadside stand many times in the years before.
