Focus on....Dock Marina Gallery & Craft Shop

This year, I decided to expand the locations where my original artwork, art reproductions, original photography, and gift items were displayed an offered for sale. I contacted Dock Marina Gallery & Craft Shop and they welcomed me right away!

From their website:

"Welcome to the Dock Marina Restaurant and Gallery, a restored historic fishing premises. The fish trade began on this site at the turn of the 18th century. Joseph White, a Quaker from Poole, England, operated a fish business here in the early 1700's. It had been a going concern from the days of the original owners, up until 1953 when the firm Morris and Company closed it’s doors after 100 years in operation. Business on this site was the longest continually operated in the history of Trinity. The building was then unoccupied for 40 years. During that time it had deteriorated to the point where it was ready to collapse into the water.In 1992, Art and Louise Andrews bought the premises and began restoration, by first constructing the wharf and then renovating the interior.

The business opened and successfully operatedunder their leadership until 2012 when it was purchased by its current owner, Corey Jones.

The Dock Art Gallery & Craft Shop is considered one of the best in Newfoundland & Labrador.

We invite you to browse through the art gallery and craft shop upstairs from the Dock restaurant. You will find one of the largest displays of paintings and photographs by most of the prominent artists and photographers in the province, many of the paintings and photos reflect life, past and present, and scenes of rural areas of the province.

Over 150 of the best known artisans in the province display their quality handicrafts in our shop. Choose from woolens, soapstone, native carvings, needlework, blown glass, unique wooden vases, pen sets made from caribou antlers, oilskin coats and hats, hooked mats, woven blankets and much more."

Dock Marina is located in picturesque Trinity, Trinity Bay, NL which is just under 2.5 hours from St. John's. Drop by Trinity and spend the day exploring, taking in the Trinity Pageant, and have a meal at Dock Marina Restaurant and then shop in the Gallery & Gift Shop.
