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
The rains are here! October has brought record rainfall to Oregon and we are hunkering down for the coming winter. Carl is setting up a pottery studio attached to my painting studio and we hope to be enjoying many hours of quiet productive work through the darkest days. Before the year is completely over, we still will have a few Open Studio days over Thanksgiving weekend. Please come and have a cup of tea or coffee and browse through 2017 calendars, new notecards, prints and a few new paintings as well. In the meantime, although many have gone to new owners, you can still see a few of the paintings from the Boundaries and Horizons show at White Bird Gallery in Cannon Beach through the end of the year.
Wishing Everyone a Peaceful Autumn,
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.
