Shaw Jewelry exhibiting Art Gowie and Miles Cooper

4 panel work by Art Gowie

Shaw Jewelry in Northeast Harbor will be exhibiting the work of Art Gowie and Miles Cooper plus others with an opening reception from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. Friday, December 6. Both artists work in a style more often associated with animation and cartoons. Mr. Gowie says he is particularly interested in the humorous and over the top methods whereby cartoon characters dispatch one another. These artists share a collective aesthetic based on illustration techniques of exaggerated features and morphing the human for into engaging, colorful and festive charactitures. They also tend to paint their pieces on found objects and clothing bring their art to the public and making the process less precious. The show will run through early January 2014 and Shaw Jewelry is open Monday – Saturday through Christmas. For more information visit
