Please join Åarhus Gallery for an Opening Reception with Hilary Kahrl and Eric Leppanen 5 to 8 p.m. Friday July 4. Islesboro potter Hilary Kahrl has covered a lot of territory in her study of ceramics: Seattle, Hawaii, Portland, Maine, and Bangalore, India. Kahrl’s exquisite line freely travels the landscape of her work revealing the story, delicate quality, and confident contours of fire meeting clay. Belfast painter Eric Leppanen grew up on the beach in Owls Head, Maine. Leppanen is an action painter who recycles old paint to give it a new life and purpose. “I work to create visually stimulating texture and depth by directing the paint’s interaction with the forces of nature, yet I find that it is a process that requires both precision and serendipity”. Åarhus Gallery is located at 50 Main Street in Belfast. For more information visit aarhusgallery.com or call 338-0001.
