D’Alessio Gallery in Bar Harbor was the center of Bar Harbor’s “Fashion Night Out Event” Sept. 8. On the walls were Russell D’Alessio’s (in hat) wonderful installation of original paintings and india ink on paper, entitled “27 Black Dresses.” Joining D’Alessio in the gallery for this Red Carpet Event was Yikes! Studio’s Suzanne Anderson jewelry and local artist Lucy Tracy’s beautiful evening wear weavings. Champagne + awesome chocolate cupcakes were served to a packed a gallery. The brain child of Linda D’Alessio, the first Bar harbor Fashion Night was a hit with plans for a bigger one next year. FMI, www.rdalessio.com
