August 5th – October 8th

 Dan and Jess and their father, Jim MacLaughlin, have opened Out of the Woods Winery (formerly HookStone Winery) and are creating a unique winery that will feature hand craft wines and specialty items.

Part of their objective is to create a space for artists to exhibit their work.  Their mother, Pat MacLaughlin, was a watercolor painter.  Pat passed away several years ago.  Throughout her struggle with Alzheimer’s, she continued her love of painting. The gallery space was done to honor her and her love for the arts.  The MacLaughlin’s have created as stylish atmosphere with a professional hanging and lighting systems to enhance the art exhibit.
