Hors d’oeuvres and tastings of two local signature cocktails will be provided by Cerina Leeman of The Harbor Room and BPL Cocktail Bar. Smokey McKeen of Pemaquid Oyster Co. will be shucking oysters from the Damariscotta River. We invite the community to join us for an evening of fun and networking, supporting local businesses, art and music at Newcastle Realty, 87 Main Street, Damariscotta.
Susan Tilton Pecora, watercolorist, and Kim Skillin Traina, pastel artist, spent “Seven Days on Monhegan” with three other artists and photographers. “The week was a gift of open ended days drawing, observing, painting, photographing. Days spent “scheduling” time by the light, the tides, the weather, the sunset, the moonrise allowed each of us to tune into the rhythms of nature and our individual responses to our surroundings. From our cottage on the hill, we painted late into the evening, offering support and objective encouragement, along with an abundance of laughter.” The varied styles and subject matter in this show explore the timeless treasures to be found on Monhegan. “Seven Days on Monhegan” will be on exhibit through the end of October.
