Harlow Gallery presents an art tour entitled “ART at HOME in Hallowell,” 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 29 in downtown Hallowell. Art at Home will offer a self-guided tour of seven Hallowell residences with private art collections. The participating homes, all in or near downtown Hallowell, were selected to showcase not only their residents’ art collections, but also their relationships with their art, and how art and living space are integrated.
Art at Home “goes beyond art on view at a gallery or in a museum,” said Dawn Gallagher, who with her husband Phil Lindley welcomed tour visitors to view their eclectic art collections in 2011. “Art is transformed within the context of a home, and it transforms the home as well. The room itself becomes an art composition, reflecting who lives there.” The featured homes will represent diverse collections of two and three-dimensional art, ranging from works by local Hallowell artists to life-long collections.
Ticket holders for this event will be offered discounts at Hallowell businesses all day and will be entered in a prize drawing for three original artworks. Maps and lists of participating businesses will be provided. Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 the day of the event. Tickets are limited and may be reserved by calling Harlow Gallery at 622-3813 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
