MDI OPEN … Shaw Jewelry in Northeast Harbor will host an art exhibition, now in its 19th year, open to the public. The event will open Thursday, May 23, from 5-7 p.m. “As usual, the only requirement is that you have a close association with Mount Desert Island, and you have a piece of work you’d like to share with the community,” said event organizers. “Paintings, prints, sculpture, photography and un-categorized are all welcomed. Professional or amateur, novice or trained, it is always a varied and surprising collection of fresh talent.” The exhibition will run through June 19. Contact 276-5000 or email@example.com.
