Art & Light
Since 2007, Art & Light has been home to some of the best art and handcrafted objects this community has to offer. In one space: art, furniture, lighting, jewelry and numerous eccentricities co-exist in a complementary fashion. Art-filled choices have the ability to convert your life and the places you live and work into cohesive and unique personal statements. At Art & Light, Teresa Roche (owner) offers creative, inventive and inspiring pieces that help you merge affordability with discovery by showcasing one-of-a-kind elements to tell your story!
Art & Light has eight resident artists. The artist’s mediums and techniques vary and include: oil paintings, woodcuts, drawings, mixed media and watercolor. Art & Light has four seasonal themes and a constantly evolving environment as new pieces arrive and the old ones say farewell as they head home with their new owners.

Why Art & Light exists?
“To me art is the ultimate personal statement. In many ways, your choices in art are a window to your soul, your family’s soul. If you buy the art you love, art that speaks to you, then your collection will become a visual collage of who you are. That’s where I, and Art & Light, come in; I can help you make those choices and produce a stunning visual collage.” – Teresa R.
The story behind “The Green Curator?”
“I am known for bringing it all together. I am always on the hunt for unique chairs, furniture, scrap pieces of wood and metal, really anything with character. In my head, I don’t see dirt and imperfections; I see its story and the potential. One of my favorite things to do is to re-purpose, using ordinary objects in unexpected ways to inspire a sense of delight. At Art & Light, I am responsible for taking care of other artists works, but I am also an ardent collector and creator.” – Teresa R.
