Who We Serve

To outsiders, it might look like Patricia Dalton Fennell leads a few separate lives. In science, she’s a clinician, therapist, researcher, and published expert on the understanding and treatment of chronic illness. In the arts, she’s a jazz musician and producer. In service, she works in restorative justice, cares for dying patients and their families, and treats survivors of trauma. But throughout her “careers,” Fennell has found that the worlds frequently collide, and that the skills she has honed in one field have proven surprisingly applicable to the others.

Merriman & Pfister's Marketplace

Oct 26, 2016

Merriman and Pfister is learning that their gift store at the Delmar Four Corners seems to be a win- win for the shop and the artists involved. In acquiring inventory for the store, efforts focus on finding smaller production vendors or those who may be looking at the ordinary in a different light. Sometimes it’s the Artist’s Story that is the draw for the buyers. Other times, a suggestion from someone will spur an interest in obtaining a product. And very often, it’s the artistic piece itself and its unusual character that drives the pursuit of the acquisition.
