Who said work isn't supposed to be fun??

Hello there!

Summer is underway here at the gallery, and Morgan and I are having a blast working craft shows! With three shows under our belts already this season we are really getting the hang of things.We enjoy meeting new faces and seeing familiar ones so much that sometimes we forget we are even working!

Fun with Silly Sticks in North Conway

 It is also quite fun meeting other vendors and seeing the amazing level of craftsmanship on display. We love representing Harvest Gold Gallery, and we get to participate in some events that we otherwise would not have been a part of. From taking center stage at Stone Mountain Arts center to hanging out with the guys from North Woods Law at the Moose Lottery it has already been a great season for fairs, and we're just getting started!

Next on the list is Bethel's Independence Day Celebration. Come see us in action Saturday July 4th from 9-4 in downtown Bethel. We will be bringing some of Bill and Lynda's exquisite Jewelry, as well as a few pieces of fine art from the gallery. Hopefully Bill makes us lunch again, who knew that a brown bag lunch could be so delicious! Hope to see you there!

Lots of Love, Morgan & Ali

Welcoming Summer at Harvest Gold


It finally feels like summer here in Center Lovell, and we couldn't be more excited! We have been busy like bees putting up all of our new paintings, unpacking new items, and setting up our garden sculptures. The flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping, and the sun is (mostly) shining. Here are a few shots of all of Bill's hard work on our gardens.

The outside of our gallery looks great, but the inside is simply stunning. Stop by and see what's new! Just a reminder that our Open House Artist Reception is Friday July 10th, from 3pm to 6pm. Look for an upcoming blog post with more details.

 We can't wait to see you!!

Have you ever been to a Moose Lottery?

We are excited to be a part of the 2015 Moose Lottery in Bethel,  Maine! We will be joining lots of other vendors on Saturday June 13th from 9-5 at the Bethel Inn Conference Center.

We love Moose here at Harvest Gold Gallery. We haven't had any over to visit yet this year, but we have seen the tracks down by the lake and we did spot one on the bridge by the Marina a few months ago.  Here is a look at a few of our favorite Moose items from the gallery!

I personally have never been to a moose lottery, so I was a bit curious about the history of this event. Moose hunting was banned in Maine from 1935 until 1980 in an effort to restore the population.  There were 1,000 permits issued for the first lottery in 1980, and that number has now increased to 2,815. In 2011 it was determined that anyone who received a permit would have to wait three years before being eligible for another one. Residents pay $15, and have only one chance to receive a permit. Nonresidents are able to purchase 10 chances, but only 10% of the total permits are available to nonresidents. In 2014 the moose population was estimated at between 70,000 and 80,000. Hunters last year averaged a 65% success rate. This moose business is serious stuff, and I'm very excited to be a part of it with the gallery next weekend. Come say hi, and see what all the fuss is about!
