Studios to open to the public



CRANBERRY ISLES — Two artists-in-residence at the Heliker-LaHotan Foundation will open their studios to the public on Friday, Sept. 29, from 3:30-5:30 p.m.

Printmaker-multimedia artist Jessyca Broekman of Falmouth and painter William Price of Asheville, N.C., have been in residence on Great Cranberry this month.

This event, the last of the 2017 residency season, is free, and refreshments will be served. Convenient ferries are available to the island from Southwest Harbor (Manset) on the Cranberry Cove Ferry and from Northeast Harbor on the Beal and Bunker Ferry.

Twentieth-century artists John Heliker and Robert LaHotan, who painted in New York and Maine for more than 50 years, established the organization that bears their names in New York City in 1992. In 2002, Robert LaHotan bequeathed their properties and studios on Great Cranberry Island for artists to spend monthlong residencies in Maine. Since 2006, more than 130 residencies have been awarded in fulfillment of LaHotan’s vision. Visit www.heliker-lahotan.org or call 244-7772.
