Our Homegrown

Our arbor laden with squash and grapes!

My works are framed and I am finishing up the paperwork for the Skyline Farm art show that will be hung this week.......
The show titled “Homegrown,” a benefit sale of fine art and crafts is inspired by Maine’s natural state. Skyline Farm’s 5th annual invitational exhibit is open from 10-3 each Saturday and 12-3 each Sunday from Sept. 25 through Dec. 4, or by appointment. For eleven weeks, you can buy artworks or bid on silent auction items donated by the artists and local businesses. Bidding action will conclude at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 4th.
Please join us on Saturday, Oct. 2 from 5-7 p.m., to enjoy light refreshments while meeting the show’s participating Maine painters Beth Carlson, Diana Johnson, Renee Lammers, Kathi Peters, Karen Pettengill, Anne Tarbox, and Wade Zahares; photographers Donald Verger and Laura Young; sculptor Jordan Smith; custom woodworkers Louis Charlett and Tom Dahlke; and artisans of fine crafts, including jewelry, glass and pottery Benjamin Coombs, Susan Horowitz, Gail Kass, Lois Kenney, Tony A.C. Kulik, Mike Mason, Lynda McCann-Olson, Deborah Peters, and Nance Trueworthy.
The artists are generously sharing a portion of each artwork’s sale and 100% of the funds raised from their Silent Auction donations to benefit Skyline Farm’s programs and operations.
Original creations for every taste and budget are for sale just in time for the holiday buying season. The show is complemented by carriages and sleighs from Skyline Farm Carriage Museum’s collection. Free admission.
Throughout the show, many weekends will feature artisan demonstrations, classes, and guest musicians.

The veggies and fruit hanging in our arbor [see photo above ] were the inspiration for one of my paintings that will be featured in the show. The photo below shows the work framed....ready to hang and enjoy.
