It's hard to believe but the season in Lubec, Maine and Campobello Island is beginning to draw to an end. The flowers are beginning to fade, even the fire weed is losing it's bloom which is very, very early. The days are shortening and there is sometimes an early morning chill that feels like September. Michael and I are busy preparing for our first joint show which is titled the Geometry of Nature: Two Visions which will be held August 14th to September 3rd at the Mulholland Market Gallery which is part of Lubec Landmarks, a local non profit trying to preserve the smokehouses which are part of Lubec's heritage. After that we will end our season on Campobello Island and Lubec. During our show in Lubec, we will not have the Artists Retreat Studios and Gallery open so I can do some necessary outdoor painting on our Campobello Island home.
The Two Stop Studio Tour will be our end of the season grand finale. On September 7th we will open both Friar's Bay Studio Gallery and the Artists Retreat Studios & Gallery for our final sales days of the season. This will replace the Two Countries, One Bay Studio Tour which we used to do in September. Next year we will begin another studio tour without the assistance of the Tides Institute since they are no longer promoting studio tours. That studio tour will be called the Quoddy Artists Studio Tour.
We have been very busy lately, but we took time out before Michael's class the other morning to enjoy a sunrise over Roosevelt's dock. There were so many colors in the sky that I just had to take a photo and make a few kaleidoscopes from that photo!
