From Stowe take Rte 100 to Morrisville (about 10 minutes), then go south on Rte. 12 about 4 miles to Lake Elmore. Turn  left on Westphal Road just before church in Elmore (diagonally across from State Park entrance). The Gallery at the Well of Stars is on left side of road,  about 1/3 mile in, near our red house.  You will see a semi-circular driveway and a sign on the door of the Gallery.

From Montpelier, take Rte 12 to Lake Elmore (25 minutes) and turn right on Westphal Road immediately after church.

The Studio at The Well of Stars was built over a period of thirty years as funds and energy became available. The second floor serves as Dominic’s painting and drawing studio (and bird feeder), while the ground level includes an indoor carving space as well a display gallery.  Most of Dominic’s carving is done outdoors, during the summer months, under a beach umbrella or in his carving tent.  

The Well of Stars was named in 1985 after its pond, which reflects the stars richly at night whenever the sky is clear and the frogs aren’t splashing too vigorously.  It has nothing to do with Robert Reed’s 2004 novel of the same name, except possibly for a common source in  2001: A Space Odyssey.
