Harvest Gold Gallery Welcomes Summer with New Artists, Website and Open House
With the 2014 summer season also comes new growth at Harvest Gold Gallery, both inside and outside, including an updated website, several new staff members, stone sculptures blooming in the picturesque perennial garden overlooking Kezar Lake and several new artists’ work budding in the already diverse and cultivated gallery. Harvest Gold’s seven-room gallery features gold and silver jewelry made on premises as well as over 200 American artists’ works of fine arts and crafts.
Several new artists’ work will be at Harvest Gold Gallery this season. Joe Gray of Graystone Masonry in Gilford, New Hampshire has been a custom stoneworker for over twenty years and has ventured into sculpting outdoor pieces such as bald eagle benches, Native American face profiles and life-sized embracing figures. Gordon R. Merrick of Symmetry in Wood utilizes a veneer called Amboyna from Vietnam in his manufacture of exquisite clocks and furniture. Rebecca Klemontovich of New York City and Bartlett, New Hampshire is an abstract oil painter of energy infused small to large-scale works. New acrylic artwork at Harvest Gold Gallery includes Melissa Prince’s Maine woodland birds and paintings of local flavor by returning artist Sandy Bell who also paints in oil, as does Dean McCrillis of Portland whose subjects focus on Maine outdoor living. Also new to the gallery are Nancy Trider of Leeds, Maine’s New England landscapes in watercolor, as well as her still life oils. Tennessean Carol Dashnall LeBarron is a textile artist whose dyed wool and jacquard pieces center on the beauty of the natural environment. Finally, to celebrate the beginning of the summer season, it is a privilege to share the return of the still life watercolor paintings of beloved late Jean Swan Gordon who was a passionate gardener and accomplished artist.
Harvest Gold Gallery’s new and improved website is scheduled to be online early this summer with a modern user-friendly design for online shopping. Be sure and mark your calendar now to attend the Gallery’s long-standing Artist Reception and Open House on Friday, July 11. This annual gathering is a chance for new and old friends to meet our staff, the artists, and enjoy artwork both inside and outside the gallery.
