New Bar Harbor art walk venues



BAR HARBOR — The next art walk, on Friday, July 3, from 6-9 p.m., will add new venues to the Independence Day eve celebration.

Art Walk Bar Harbor welcomes a new West Street location this season, Bar Harbor Body Shop Boutique and Spa, where fiber artist Laura Osgood offering hand spinning and felting demonstrations.

Stop by Frenchman’s Bay Clothing Company to meet local artisan Dory Graham of Worthygoods, with her hand-sewn bow ties and sun hats.

All new for the July Art Walk is the Catherine Hill Winery at 122 Cottage St., a winery and gallery that will show oil paintings, pastels and hand-painted floor cloths by Starr Kopper and Cynthia Huntington.

Window Panes will feature Geoffrey Warner, a Maine furniture designer inspired by Scandinavian and Japanese design to create the Owl stool, which provides ergonomic comfort and pain relief.

Kick off the evening on the streets of Bar Harbor with a tour of the newly renovated 1932 art deco Criterion Theater or view an excerpt of the Barn Arts Collective’s make-your-own-adventure musical in the Bayside Courtyard or at D’Alessio Gallery. Pick up a walking map at most lodging establishments, the Chamber of Commerce and most participating shops and galleries.

Digital sculptor Josef Riggins will be at ART on West, 78 West St., on Friday, July 3, from 6-9 p.m to show examples of his portraiture and to talk about traditional and digital sculpting.

The 22-year-old sculptor has a portrait sculpting business with his own spin on the technique. Instead of sculpting portraits practically in clay, Josef sculpts them digitally using a powerful sculpting program then has them printed into plastic models that can be cast into bronze.

Beautiful landscapes and portraits by Bar Harbor painter Roc Caivano grace the walls of the Gladys Franklin O’Neil periodicals room at the Jesup Memorial Library.

The show will remain up until July. Call 288-4245 or email [email protected].
