Julie & Phil Wilmot

Owners

Were it not for these two women, we may not have acquired the gallery!

MEIGHAN ASH


This amazing woman, with creativity and kindness seeping out of her, needs no introduction to our friends and followers. When she’s on the gallery floor tending shop we are in wonderfully capable hands. She is a remarkable representative for The Gallery at Flat Rock, and we are ever so grateful for her part in taking this ride with us into the future!

WENDY MCENTIRE


Another amazing woman, Wendy is warm and welcoming, offering her helpful heart, listening ears and eye for fine art to everyone who enters the gallery. You know you are in good hands when Wendy is on the floor of the gallery, but you already knew that, right? Her gentle spirit and get-it-done attitude is ever-present, and we are so grateful for her!

Thank you Meighan and Wendy for taking this journey with us into the next chapter for
