December Surprise! We have added new pieces of Denise Wallace Jewelry to our site today!




Visions of the North

Opening Friday, November 25, 2016 at 10:00 am Eastern Time

     We invite you to open your hearts to a glimpse of the Far North as we celebrate the Holiday Season and the coming of winter. The kickoff to our holiday season is our Thanksgiving Show highlighting the jewelry of Alaskan native artist Dawn Wallace.  Dawn’s newest creations honor Mothers and Babies of the Arctic. 
     We'll also be unveiling new carvings and sculptures in stone, bone and walrus tusk from the Bering Strait in the West to Canada's Nunavut Territory in the East. Experience the amazing talents of Ojibwe basketmakers from Lake Huron and Acho Dene people in the Northwest Territories who combine the beauty of birch bark with porcupine quills to create unique vessels of great beauty.
      The indigenous people of our colder regions know how to exist closely with their natural surroundings; use this holiday season to share and celebrate Northern cultures through the artistic expressions of their people.

       Grant and Betsy Turner

Dear Newsletter;

      Saturday, August 6th is the 30th Anniversary of the opening of our business Long Ago and Far Away, in Manchester Center, Vermont. So much has happened and so many years have gone by! During that time, we have been privileged to have had some wonderfully amazing travels, met countless fascinating people, handled a huge amount of amazing art and also raised two young women named Ellie and Martha Turner, who are now having their own impact on the world. The one word that best describes our feelings about this anniversary is "Gratitude".


Gratitude for our wonderful, interesting and loyal customers and friends who helped us establish our business here and who have kept us here for 30 years.


Gratitude for all of the magnificent artists we have been fortunate enough to represent in our gallery and whose work INSPIRES all of us!


Gratitude to the Manchester community for the ability to live and work in such a beautiful place and to raise our children here.

    While summer is upon us and the gallery is loaded with jewelry, sculpture, weavings, and pottery – both new and vintage - we hope those of you nearby will be able to join us for cake and coffee and a little celebration this Saturday, all day, in our Manchester Center, Vermont retail store. No RSVP necessary.

Again and again, we thank you!

Most Sincerely,

Betsy and Grant Turner



      Welcome to the web site of Long Ago & Far Away. We are a Vermont Gallery featuring Canadian Inuit Art, Native Alaskan Art, Native American Art, and Vermont Arts and Crafts, and have been located in the same converted classic New England house since 1986. Conceived by Grant and Betsy Turner as a window into the deepest roots of culture on the continent, Long Ago & Far Away continues to offer top-quality products from the most interesting artists and craftspeople working today.

       Our selection of indigenous art comes from the entire North American Continent, but we have focused on a few special areas from our wide and varied inventory for this website. In this site, you will find pages on Canadian Inuit Stone Sculpture, Alaskan Sculpture, and Iroquois Sculpture, as well as pages featuring specific artists represented at our retail gallery. We've been in business at our current location for over twenty-five years, and have a life time of contacts - if you don't find what you're looking for here, please get in touch!

       We are pleased to represent the jewelry of Alaskan artists DENISE and DAWN WALLACE. Their creations are always in demand, and we try to stock a limited group of previously sold pieces on our web for your viewing pleasure. We have a long list of customers looking for older work - if you have a piece you'd consider parting with, be sure to let us know.
