Pictures: What's in store in Thurmont and Emmittsburg
Perhaps creativity is in the Catoctin Mountain air. That trait seems to be in abundance with many of the shop-owners in nearby Thurmont and Emmitsburg. And you'll find results of that originality and talent in each of their stores there. - Sloane Brown, Special to The Baltimore Sun

The Rebecca Pearl Gallery( Sloane Brown, Baltimore Sun / June 14, 2012 )
While you can find many of her paintings and prints in fine art galleries and collections across the country, this is Rebecca Pearl's home gallery and shop. Her range of portraits, still-lifes, landscapes and montages in oil, watercolor and pastel is amazing. The shop also offers work by other local artists, and the framing expertise of her husband, J. Zeigler.
Pearl has also become sought after for her commissioned portraits of people's pets, like this 12-by-16-inch oil of a Golden Terrier ($350).
The Rebecca Pearl Gallery is at 24 E. Main St., Emmitsburg. Call 301-447-1911 or 301-271-2348 or go to rebeccapearl.com.
