Linda and Juliet
Juliet Rose Gallery is the heartbeat of two women. Juliet Bacchas from Jamaica, and Linda Spelko from Massachusetts. Together they bring you a slice of New England with the spice of Jamaica.

Creating from clay, her pottery pieces are linear, sculptural, graceful large forms.

The friendship of these two women is evident, as is their love of clay, together their work compliments the other. Their gallery features works from local artists as well as artists from Jamaica. Their goal is to foster relationships between two different countries, and give artists the opportunity to exhibit in Jamaica, as well as Jamaicans to exhibit locally. The Gallery is a Fine Art Gallery, and strives to present a custom blend of ceramics, paintings, sculpture, weaving, photography, and jewelry.
