In 1969, Resia Schor, an artist herself and the widow of the artist Ilya Schor, bought this house (c1800). The next year, she and her daughter, Mira Schor, began using it as their studio. The older woman worked in a former fish shack, making jewelry and sculpture. The younger woman painted upstairs in a small room with seashell-patterned wallpaper from the 50s. After Resia died in 2006, Mira began drawing in her mother’s studio, which “proved to be an engine for new work.” Her parents are buried in the Town Cemetery, under a somber but strikingly modernist tombstone.
