As the season has changed from summer to fall, we start thinking about the holidays. We've been busy in the gallery with new work coming in, rearranging some areas, and adding a new artist or two.
This coming Tuesday (Nov. 2) at 6:30 PM, glass artist Stephanie Sersich will be giving a Virtual Artist Talk. Stephanie explores beads and glass by giving new meaning to traditional forms. What separates her jewelry from others is that she challenges herself by using both the old and the new together.

Trunk show november 6
Did you miss our first Virtual Artist Talk? It was wonderful! And you can still see it. The entire talk was recorded and you can watch it in your own time. Watch it here, as well as other videos that may interest you.
We've been adding to our Artist Videos page with some videos from artists. There's a great one from Bonnie Bishoff demonstrating how she manipulates polymer clay into the intriguing color combinations she uses in her jewelry. Others are coming as our artists send us links.
Our next Artist Talk is May 25 with the Topsham Public Library hosting. You can read more and get the link to register on our Calendar of Events page.
Our associate member Barbara Burns has been developing an event calendar for us and it's filling up!
The first Virtual Artist Talk will be Tuesday, April 20, 6:30-7:30 pm. Susan Perrine, who creates the woven structures and lamps you may have seen in our window and Wayne Robbins- Contemporary Hand Carved Wood Birds and Marine Mammals will be talking about their work.
Registration Only (required)
Trunk shows have also been scheduled. If you're not familiar with them, they are a great way to get some special pieces from artists. They bring in work that may be new or more variety of what they usually have. No matter what, it's always a treat. They only last a few hours so be sure to put them on your calendar. We have Suzanne Anderson, Jackie Haines, and Bonnie Bishoff scheduled so far. You can see our complete calendar with descriptions. We update it as events are scheduled.
