After success with Davallia, the Alons open a new branch
After five years with Davallia, a beautiful gallery on the green in the center of Chester, Michael and Jessie Alon have opened a second gallery. This one is in Chester’s Stone Village, nestled on 39 North Street — just a stone’s throw to Okemo. The new location will allow the couple’s passion for the arts to flourish.
They found a 1800s farmhouse and over the last several months have been creatively transforming it into the perfect backdrop for their gallery and studio space. Michael’s sculpture adorns the serpentine gardens that dance around the house. Inside is a modern farmhouse with exposed beams, sliding barn doors, and white washed bead board walls. Jessie’s handcrafted jewelry is showcased in custom cases built by Michael. The couple works closely together to select works from other artists and artisans to create a harmonious blend for the gallery spaces. Local artists and Michael’s custom furniture adorn the clean white walls and displays are layered with home accents, jewelry, art and vintage finds.
Adjacent to the gallery are their studios and a new design center. They wanted a design center to help bring inspiration to life for their clients. We recommend paying a visit to both locations. Go to http://www.facebook.com/pages/DaVallia-Art-Accents for images and work in progress.
