The Pemaquid Group opens its 84th season

"Fishing Boats - South Bristol" by Stephen Busch

The Pemaquid Group of Artists invites friends and the interested public to an Opening Reception for its 84th season on Sunday, June 10 from 5 – 6:30 p.m. at the gallery at Lighthouse Park in New Harbor. Refreshments, conversation with the artists, and exciting new works of art will be featured.

This season the artists are pleased to welcome two new member artists. Sarah Carter of Bristol and Judy Nixon, also of Bristol, have been juried into membership. Jane Bowman of New Harbor and Kathi Nordone of Damariscotta will be exhibiting their work as the 2012 Guest Artists. Come and meet these new artist members and guests, as well as the returning 24 member artists.  There is a wonderful array of new and impressive works of art in oil, pastel, acrylic and watercolor and sculpture for all to discover and enjoy.

In addition to larger framed works, gallery visitors will find smaller and very affordable paintings on the gallery’s three “mini boards”. Several bins offer matted, but unframed original artwork.  The Pemaquid Art Gallery exhibits only original work by local artists who reside on the Pemaquid peninsula.  There is an original painting or work of art for every taste and for every pocketbook.

In addition to the new member artists, the 2012 exhibiting artists include:  Barbara Applegate, Debra L. Arter, Bruce Babb, Stephen Busch, Trudi Curtis, Peggy Farrell, Viola Glendinning, Claire Hancock, Kay Hannah, Jean Harris, Jane Herbert, Hannah Ineson, Jan Kilburn, Barbara Klein, Patti Leavitt, Sally Loughridge, Marlene Loznicka, Nancy O’Brien MacKinnon, Denise Rankin, Paul Sherman, Pande Stevens, Ernest T. Thompson, Jr., Bob Vaughan, and Sarah Wilde. FMI, please call 677-2752.
