Dominique and Alan Darcy first visited La Conner in spring of 1994; it was love at first sight. A little more than a year later they opened Two Moons Gallery, in February 1996.
Our gallery is called “Two Moons” because we were both born in July, and this makes us “Moon Children”. We have both always loved the image of a full moon reflected on the water.
Dominique was born in Versailles and raised in Paris, France, where she became an accomplished sculptress. Moving to the States as a young woman, she has lived in Sausalito, Hawaii, New York, and Los Angeles where, for many years, she had an active practice as a psychotherapist. She retired from this career upon moving to the Pacific Northwest.
Born and raised in New York City, Alan has been a teacher at both university and pre-school levels. He had a long and varied career in the music business as a singer/songwriter, publisher, and marketing executive. He “retired” in 1994.
With their unique backgrounds, and an equal love of beauty and humor, the Darcy’s felt they could create a different kind of gallery environment and selection; to create a truly unprecedented mix of fine crafts and contemporary art with elegant yet practical gift items, many of which would feature a “serious touch of whimsy”.
We are happy to help you find what you are looking for; and our very friendly staff is ready to provide information, options and (should you desire) suggestions to satisfy you to the best of our ability. We look forward to assisting you whenever you call or visit.
