You're Invited... !

... To Our 9th Annual Artist Reception and Open House at Harvest Gold Gallery on July 8th from 3-6pm.

         The new art has arrived and it’s up and ready for summer!  This year, Harvest Gold Gallery is showing the largest collection of original fine art and crafts yet. There are many new works by our favorite artists and new artists have been added to the gallery as well.  It was a great winter for creating!

         Varvara Harmon, of Windham, is showing several of her new works including her amazing “Roses on Silk” original oil painting that has won many international awards.  It is done in the style of the old masters and so real you can feel the softness of the silk and almost smell the roses.  She has some new landscapes of special places like Kezar Lake and even one that combines the four seasons in one forest scene.

         Our local Lovell artist, Tom Merriam, known for his huge murals on the red barn of the Raymond and Casco Historical Society, has been busy with extra large paintings and his extra small, miniature paintings. Don’t be surprised to see some light-hearted bear carvings sprinkled around the gallery. Carving has always been a special passion for Tom. His new children’s books are now out. He has two so far.  Fun Stories and delightful illustrations, combined with the high quality cards that he has developed, make his work available to all. We are fortunate to have such talented people here in our community.

         One of the new artists this year is a young glass artist from Maine, Konrad Hunter.  He twists the light when it streams through his liquid like forms that hang in the window.  Lacey Pots has new peace bowls and chickadee plates in bright fun colors.  Sally Bags you know has lots of new fun styles for summer.  Their laptop bag combines with mix and match cosmetic bags to make a great set.  Bruce May had a great winter of woodturning.  Now with more people wanting to eat from natural wood bowls, he has delivered a beautiful cherry salad bowl and several personal sized bowls.  Wooden sandwich boards by a family business from Blue Hill finish the table.

         Come a see why Harvest Gold Gallery won Yankee Magazine’s Best Gallery with a view.  Have a glass of wine and meet the artists July 8th 3-6pm. Bathe yourself in the beautiful, amazing pieces created by your neighbors. Open daily and always on the web at

Pascale Judet new clocks at Harvest Gold Gallery

New Clocks by Pascale Judet!

 Harvest Gold Gallery presents a new series of paintings by French decent artist, Pascale Judet for the 2011 collection.

 Born in 1946, Pascale fell comfortably in love with art in the early 1970s. In her Vashon Island home, Pascale employs her natural ability to capture the constant motion of the true beauty of Mother Nature.


        A graduate from Sorbonne in 1968 Pascale received a degree in philosophy, only to uncover by the early 1970’s her passion for creative mediums. Her future work in bookkeeping and painted mixed media brought her the opportunity to display her works in several galleries around the U.S. including Seattle, Boston and Portland Maine.

            Dabbling in all sorts of media, Pascale found painting to be a perfect fit for her new line of scenic clocks. Simplified and distinctive, Pascale’s clocks are revered for their surrealist style of painting and intricate care of her subjects that range from rocky landscapes, to snowy fields. Each clock presents a mini stage of dreamscape. Best of all you’ll never get lost in the view; her mini painted sculptures also include a one-inch clock to help us keep track of our precious time.

            Harvest Gold Gallery invites you to come expereince what American craft has to offer.  Voted “Best Gallery with a View” by Yankee Magazine this summer.  There is beauty in and out. Route 5 Center Lovell, Maine. Open Daily.  For further information call  207-925-6502. or visit our website @ and check us out on facebook.

Delicate, Pink, and oh so Elegant - The Pink Lady Slipper arrives in Full Bloom

We took a little hike up our neighboring mountain, Sabatus Mountain, here in Center Lovell this week. What a lovely surprise just before reaching the summit we were greeted by the pink lady slippers that lined the pathway and sprouted up deep in the woods. A member of the orchid family, the pink lady slipper is a rare sight and is listed as an endangered species in many northern states.

The lady slipper has been an inspiration to artists for centuries with it's beautiful delicate shape and continues to be one of New England's unique motifs.

Lady Slippers, Original Oil By: Andy Curran

One of our favorite painters and Maine local, Andy Curran, depicts our forest scene perfectly in one of his paintings that we currently have on exhibit in the gallery.

How does the lady slipper inspire you?
