Saltwater Artists Gallery on Pemaquid Point is now open for the 2017 Maine summer art season. Gallery members convened on the 13th of May for our organizational meeting and to prepare the gallery for its Memorial Day opening... inside (shelves were dusted, floors vacuumed, windows washed, and pedestals set up)... and out (gutters cleaned, shrubs trimmed, gardens weeded, and new stones in the walkway). The following week we returned to the gallery to set up our display areas. It was great to see the new work of our returning artists and to get to know the work of our 6 new members.
In addition to the artists mentioned in the above photos, the gallery offers the jewelry of Lynn Thompson, Linda Paine and Cat Crozier; the photographs of Ardy Greatorex and Rick Berg; the etchings of Kat Miller; the paintings of Tania Amazeen-Jones; and the digital photographs, posters and pendants of Dave Higgins. The gallery presents a wide and interesting range of media and artistic styles. You can find links to the artists' websites at the gallery website www.saltwaterartists.com. and you can follow current gallery news on Facebook. If you are vacationing in Maine, stop by to see us on your way out to see the lighthouse at Pemaquid Point!
