“Impressions” art exhibit set

MOUNT DESERT — The artwork of Liz Cutler, Carrie Eason, Janet Elvidge and Jean Forbes will be featured at the Northeast Harbor Library from July 2 through July 31. Their show, “Island Impressions,” will feature recent work in acrylic, gouache, ink, oil, photography and watercolor by the artists.

An opening reception is set for Thursday, July 5, from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Mellon Room. The event is open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

Cutler, founder and an instructor at ArtWaves MDI in Town Hill, “works to place an area of contrast and tension in each of her pieces,” she said in a statement. She “strives to keep her work free from clutter, maintaining the simplistic beauty of the moment.”

Eason is the ArtWaves coordinator. Eason enjoys producing architectural renderings as well as landscape paintings and portrait sketches in acrylic, pencil and ink.

Elvidge grew up on Mount Desert Island. Elvidge is the associate dean of library services at Eastern Maine Community College. Her work in acrylic, photography and watercolor express her love for plant life, the mountains and waterways that characterize MDI.

Forbes is a retired art teacher living in Manset. Forbes’s work is greatly influenced by her local surrounding and she enjoys capturing the light, colors and moods of the day in her landscapes and seascapes.
