Shaw Gallery calling all artists!


Shaw Gallery in Northeast Harbor is calling all artists for the fourteenth annual Mount Desert Open. This is a painting, fine craft and sculpture exposition for local residents to show their work in a gallery setting.   There are only two criteria to gain acceptance in this year’s exhibit.  First, you must have work that you are proud of and willing to share with your community; and second, you must have an MDI address.  All interested persons are encouraged to contact the gallery. Last year’s Mount Desert Open was a fantastic success.  It included 55 artists all living on or working on Mount Desert Island.  It was a wide-ranging show from exploratory to realistic, from watercolor to weaving. The show will have a festive opening reception on Thursday May 22, 2014 and run through June 11th.  Any resident of MDI, or anyone having an MDI address is welcomed to exhibit. There is no jury process, but your work must be matted, framed and ready to hang, or presented in a professional manner. Please contact Shaw Gallery at 276-5000, or at for information.
