Harvest Gold Summer Opening!

Harvest Gold Gallery, on route 5 in Center Lovell, Maine, has received Yankee Magazine’s Editors Choice award for “Best Gallery” for 2016!  The Editors Choice Awards are published in Yankee’s Best of New England edition. The publication is a tour guide to some of the best places to see while visiting New England.

Harvest Gold Gallery is busy getting ready for it’s nineteenth year here in Lovell, Maine.  The gallery exhibits the work of over 150 American artists, along with the Harvest Gold Jewelry collection created by owners Lynda Rasco and Bill Rudd. Lynda and Bill specialize in different styles of goldsmithing, and the union of these styles makes the jewelry shown in Harvest Gold elegant and contemporary. Their unique jewelry has been sold in galleries and jewelry stores across the globe for over 30 years.

“It is such an honor to be recognized by Yankee Magazine and we couldn’t be happier to celebrate this award along with the 150 other American artists and craftsmen who help make up Harvest Gold Gallery,” says gallery owner and jewelry designer Lynda Rudd.

The 2016 exhibit features new artists and new works.  The collection features internationally awarded artists, nationally awarded sculptors, museum quality glasswork, and many more fine art gifts. Come see some of Gwen Nagel’s pastels of local landscapes, Gene Whitney’s wonderfully carved fish, or Jean Swan Gordan’s brilliantly bright floral watercolor bouquets!

Outside of the gallery are beautifully arranged sculpture gardens, which compliment a breathtaking view of Kezar Lake and the White Mountains. The ever-blooming gardens are a sight in themselves to stop by for. Indoors, the art and craftwork fill seven rooms to provide for you a tranquil adventure to undertake one fine summer day. 

Harvest Gold is open daily and is located just past the Center Lovell Market at 1082 Main Street. For further information about the Gallery, please contact us at (207) 925-6502 or check out our website at

Summer in Maine, artist spotlight- Diane Scott

The summer season has begun here at Harvest Gold, and the crowds have started visiting the gallery and our beautiful views. To start off the summer blogging on the right foot, we'd like to spotlight an artist who expertly captures the beauty of New England seasons - the lovely painter, Diane Scott!

Diane is a Canadian traveler who has spent a great deal of time in New England and America painting the sights. She practices plein air (outdoor) painting and is no stranger to the annual plein air painting event we host every summer. Diane's education includes Ecole Louis Riel, St. Boniface, Manitoba, Canada RN from St. Boniface Hospital Three Schools of Art in Toronto, Canada, Bachelor Fine Arts from Herts College of Art and Design in St. Albans, England (now Hertfordshire University), and her list of accolades is extensive. 

Our favorite things about Diane's paintings are the way she captures the natural lighting that is so important to creating an atmosphere in the painting. Her brushstrokes remind us of impressionists, the masters of capturing light. We love Diane's ability to capture the simplistic beauty of New England. So much of being a New Englander is appreciating the beauty of the everyday around us!
Stop by the gallery to see more of Diane's work, or visit her website: Remember keep in touch with us to hear about upcoming summer events, including the plein air event!
