Paula Estey has been a tireless warrior for art her entire life. She feels blessed by this obsession, which has taken her from poet to potter to painter and performer. PAULA ESTEY GALLERY was a divine idea that came to fruition in April 2014, as if the community of Newburyport had been holding a spot for it until it arrived! Since then, Estey has continually sought to engage and expand the dialogue between her talented roster of fine artists and the community, through a constantly changing and event-driven calendar in its bricks and mortar location and an impeccably high standard for personal service. PEG ONLINE is the forward-thinking, global model for art exchange, so long in coming and so eagerly anticipated. Estey's curatorial skills have been widely used, from pop-up art salons to public installations to jurying. For Estey, PEG ONLINE is a dream come true.
