Tunk Mountain Arts and Crafts, home to the William D. Sherar Gallery in Cherryfield will host an opening July 7 from 4 to 7 p.m. The featured artists are Valerie Aponik of Great Wass Island and Robin Rier of Jonesport. Valerie and Robin have painted plein air together for 7 years and share a wealth of knowledge about our Downeast area. Their oil paintings impart a sense of place, atmosphere and immediacy only to be found in plein air work. Be it a view from Tunk Mountain or an abandoned skiff, the viewer can feel the ‘sense of place’ and values that are so much a part of the history of this section of the Maine coast. Tunk Mountain Arts and Crafts is located at 639 Blackswoods Road (rte.182) just 3miles from the junction of rte 1 and rte 182 in Cherryfield, next door to the Catherine Hill Winery.
