Hello world!

Welcome to Arts Guide new blog.

Yesterday – Tuesday, October 6th – I helped hang a wonderful show at Carolyn Hecker’s Pearson Legacy Gallery here in Deer Isle.  Titled “Transformations: Mainstreaming Mud,”  it’s the first exhibition in the off-season schedule of the gallery, located at 13 Dow Rd., Deer Isle.     Over 40 artists use clay:  some as a material for an elegant vase, bowl or platter or perhaps for a sculptural wall or free-standing piece.  Some capture the work of others who use clay in a photograph or a painting.  And many interpret clay and mud as they exist in nature.  When I walk in the front door, I feel as if I ‘ve entered an upscale city gallery.  There’s a lot of breathing room in this exhibit – space to appreciate each piece.

The exhibit is open Thursdays through Sundays, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., ending on  October 25th.
The Pearson Legacy MINI Gallery (a year-round small gallery adjacent to the main exhibition space with work in all media) will also be open.  For information on the exhibition and other programs, call: 348- 2535.  After October 12th, call: 348-6848.  If you are in the area, come to the opening tomorrow, Thursday, October 8th from 5-7 pm.

Look for an update, with photos, on Friday.

By the way – that amazing photograph of Blue Hill Harbor at dawn (above) is by my daughter – Cynthia Farr-Weinfeld.
