Everyone reaps the benefits of farmers’ months’ long efforts when crops are harvested in September. Forty Maine artists offer the fruits of their years’ labors at the Stable Gallery in Damariscotta this month.
Opening Friday, Sept. 14, “Art Harvest” is the final art show on Stable Gallery’s 2018 season. Nine local artists are featured in the main gallery while another 30-plus artists display their works in adjoining spaces.
The gallery will hold a public reception to meet the artists and see their work, Friday, Sept. 14 from 5-7 p.m. The gallery is open daily 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and for the Newcastle/Damariscotta ArtWalk on Friday, Sept. 21 until 7 p.m.
The September show features Daisy Greene’s acrylic paintings inspired by the towns, woods, and sea of eastern Maine; Hati Modr’s oil paintings shine with the sights and shadows of Monhegan Island; and Jennifer Litchfield is offering oil and acrylic paintings of sea and forest scenes.
Stephen Vowles creates wooden bowls and rolling pins that are both decorative and useful. If ceramic bowls, butter dishes, or vases are what speak to you, Lori Watts has brought a range of colorful, playful pieces. Nicholas Downing produces metal utensils and hooks.
Roz Welsh is displaying a wide variety of exquisite silver jewelry. Welsh also creates three dimensional paintings that resonate with nature’s beauty.
Janet Percival knits amazing hats and mittens that will see you through winter’s challenges by warming your body and your soul.
Lastly, Bill Bellows is lauded locally for his two sided, woven wool rugs with striking geometric patterns. This show includes several of Bill’s work; he also makes rugs on commission.
