Donna Williston settled in the Mystic, Connecticut community over 38 years ago and created, with the help of her husband at the time, The Finer Line Gallery and Framers of the Lost Art in 1985 followed by The Artware Store in 1991. She also founded the Downtown Committee of the Mystic Chamber and Mystic’s Mayday Festival.  She is one of the founders of the Mystic River Park and served as its Capital Campaign Chairman helping raise over a million dollars for the Park’s creation.  In addition, she served as Board President for the Mystic Chamber of Commerce and served as a scout leader for over ten years and is the proud parent of her two Eagle Scouts, Christopher & Matthew Williston who live and work in Stonington and Virginia respectively. As we celebrate our 37th anniversary, The Finer Line Gallery continues to offer affordable art, art supplies, classes, and expert custom framing with an eye towards design in beautiful downtown Mystic, Connecticut.

Donna Williston is also a licensed Realtor in Connecticut with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services. Being a shop owner in Downtown Mystic makes it easy for Real Estate buyers and sellers to connect with each other, given the vast network of friends and customers Donna has made over the years. Her “revolving” shop door brings in visitors from outside the area as well, many of whom would love to purchase a home here. So, whether you’re looking to buy or sell in the near future, stop by the Art Gallery on the corner- 48 W. Main St.- and get acquainted!
