The Inspired Hand VI

I am one of the members of the Maine Crafts Association who has been chosen to have work in this biennial exhibition at the Atrium Gallery on the Lewiston-Auburn campus of the University of Southern Maine.

The exhibition opens this Friday, January 17, with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. The show runs through March 15. The Atrium Gallery is open Monday through Friday.

Islesford beach rocks, handmade fine silver hollow beads

 

 

Though it is a small island, Islesford is well represented in this show. Including my pieces, there will also be work by Kaitlyn Duggan, Marian Baker, and Sam Shaw. I’m hoping to catch up with a number of my MCA friends at the opening. If you’re in the area, stop by!

Necklaces for West Gardiner

Where can you pull off an interstate highway, get gas for your car, get something to eat, make a comfort stop, AND shop in an amazing gallery of fine crafts?

The service plaza in West Gardiner, Maine of course. It’s where I 295, I 95, and the Maine Turnpike converge. You can be going south or going north and it’s still easily accessible from the highway. Just inside the building, among the usual suspects in the food court, is the Center for Maine Craft featuring juried work from many members of the Maine Crafts Association.

I’ve had some of my jewelry there since the beginning of May and I’m happy to say they need more necklaces. These are from the batch I mailed out today:

All 7 of the flame worked beads below are by Susan Kennedy of SueBeads.

I wondered when I would get around to using these translucent polymer clay discs that I made while fooling around in April with my friend Holly. They just seemed to fit right in with the recycled Indonesian glass and the English sea glass. Old, new, and renewed; linked together by their matte finishes.
