Tiverton native’s artwork seen all over the world, including the famous Louvre.
Tiverton resident Helen Sturges Nadler paused when she begin talking about her late husband Harry Nadler’s life and career as she sat in Gallery 4 on Sunday in Tiverton Four Corners surrounded by her late husband’s legacy. Sunday's discussion included thoughts on Nadler's painting “Nocturnal Odalisque," one of three “Homage to Ingres” paintings exhibited at the Louvre, Paris in 1971.

Someting old (3,000 years); something new (let's say a small round purse designed by local artists this year); something borrowed (from Chinese artisans in the Shanghai region); and something blue (in an endless array of shades). Welcome to Nankeen.
One step inside Nankeen, recently relocated to 3848 Main Road at Four Corners (former home of Amy Lund’s weaving shop and before that, Stone Bridge Dishes), suggests that it is much more than a store. Two large sun-lit rooms, and a smaller central space, all with shining wide-board wood floors, display a variety of one-of-a-kind items made from 100 percent cotton, indigo-dyed fabric. Every size of bag from small purses to large totes, along with belts, pillows, and even shirts with brightly patterned cuffs, decorate each room. The varied shades of blue on white sport a sometimes somber, and other times whimsical, entourage of animals and fish, rope swirls, flowers and butterflies, stripes, unicorns, and horses and carriages. “Our aim is…
