Wedding at Harvest Gold!

Original publish date: June 29th, 2012

On Saturday June 23rd Craig and Megan joined together in marriage in the field behind Harvest Gold Gallery!



A sweet little girl looks at the art and flowers, where so many are captivated by the beauty of the gardens.

 

The chairs were set, and the couple was ready, but the rain had other plans for the day
It was pouring rain the morning of the wedding and the Bride and Bridesmaids hid out in the cars parked by the Gallery.

 

Some of the guests and guests of honor made their way inside the Gallery to escape the rain and enjoy the art.

 

Finally, just in time, the clouds broke and the sun shone through, making way for a beautiful bride and a lovely wedding procession.

 

The bride and her brides maids were a beautiful sight, illuminating even the cloudy skies.

 

The sweet flower girls littered the ground with petals, through the arbor, where the bride and groom would take their vows.

 

The couple retreated from the aisle, back through the arbor, as Man and Wife.
It was a lovely time for all, at the Gallery overlooking Kezar Lake, 
 in beautiful Lovell, Maine.
To plan your wedding at Harvest Gold Gallery, contact Bill and Lynda at 207-925-6502
or simply stop by the Gallery located on Route 5 in Center Lovell Maine.

Award Winning American Woodcarver Coming to Harvest Gold!

Original publish date: June 4th, 2012

We are always excited to share with you, in some detail, the artists that we have show cased at the gallery, especially when they are from our own home state like Rob Jones, our featured artist of the week. Rob Jones is an award winning American Woodworker from Thomaston, Maine. He began his art by building, with assistance, his first banjo, an instrument that had always held an interest for him. Since then, he has built several instruments including banjos, a French horn, trombones, and a trumpet. His musical instruments are played by music professors. He entered his lobster carving in the Maine Sportsman Show and he won the People's Choice award and was hooked from that point on. To view some of his works visit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqWRsRDDb1M

 

 

 

 

 

 

At the gallery, we are delighted to have a sample of his very unique bowls, Baltic by Design. They come in four different sizes from small for a candle holder to large enough to be a center piece with fruit. With the wedding season upon us or Father's Day right around the corner, these would made a fabulous and timeless gift. Stop by any day!

Paul Bendzunas Art Glass has Organic Flair

Original publish date: May 10th, 2012

Aqua Frog

Here at Harvest Gold we are always thrilled when new items and pieces come in for us to place around the gallery. One of our favorite returning glass artists is Paul Bendzunas. Paul's obvious love of nature and it's soothing palette, will delight anyone when they see his fine, hand-blown vases that are themed around nature.

Green Frog

Combining traditional design elements with contemporary influences, Bendzunas has evolved an unusual style based primarily on natural and organic forms. His surface patterns involve animal and aquatic imagery. He achieves this effect by using colored enamels – the same crushed glass powders used in cloisonné jewelry – and precious metals, in combination with bits of crushed glass. He achieves distinctive colors using various formulations of metallic oxides such as gold, silver, cobalt and others, blended into the molten glass. Using classic glassblowing techniques that are thousands of years old, Bendzunas works the glass at temperatures in excess of 2000 degrees F. He forms and shapes each piece individually, without the use of molds. Each piece is one of a kind and is signed and dated.
His work is included in numerous public and private collections, including those of the Westinghouse Corporation, R.J. Reynolds Corporation and the State of Georgia Council for the Arts and Humanities. He has exhibited his work at galleries, museums and juried shows throughout the United States.

 We hope that while you are out for an afternoon drive through the White Mountains that you will stop buy our Gallery in Center Lovell and enjoy seeing Paul Bendzuna's work, amongst many other fine artists. We are open seven days a week from ten a.m. until four p.m. Looking forward to seeing you!

Michael Tatum Showing at Harvest Gold

Original publish date: May 8th, 2012

 

Harvest Gold Gallery is happy to present the wonderful work of Michael Tatom.  His captures the spirit of the animals.  The quick look from the grey fox.
 



Michael Tatom has been a sculptor for more than twenty years. He was born in Los Alamos, NM where he was surrounded by a family of artists and designers. 



In 1994 Michael started sculpting his series of bronze animals, each with their own magical shape and movement. Using simple and graceful lines he has become a successful sculptor.  The quiet fawn resting in the wood.  The lurking cougar stalking.



Michael Tatom quotes: "The main focus of my work is to translate into bronze the essence of the animal, to capture some movement or instinct and present it in a simple, stylized form. 
 
The last and one of my favorite parts of the process is the patina. There are so many variables when working with patina. The different colors and textures have a dramatic effect on the feel of the finished sculpture."
 

 

 Stop by when passing through beautiful Center Lovell, Maine, overlooking Kezar Lake and see them all.  New ones are expected soon!  
Intertwined and Braided Wedding Rings!

Original publish date: May 7th, 2012

This season has been very exciting with all the new intertwined and braided possibilities we have been making!
 The narrow three strand braid for the bride.
People have great ideas.  They have been choosing all one color and variations.
 
 
Some have inspired us to make a wider version of our favorite three strand intertwined ring :)
 
This in both his and hers :)
 Some have wanted to add side bands in color to accent the center weave in these Celtic bands.
The side rings look nice on the traditional braid too!
The traditional braid in our favorite colors, yellow, rose and green golds.

We are featuring a local artist centered in Portland, Maine this week. Lacey Goodrich, owner and founder of Laceypots, has created quite a "contemporary meets romantic" union in her uniquely designed pieces, ranging from swirly vases, to chickadee plates, to sunflower serving plates. We are always delighted, here at the gallery, to welcome new pieces coming in from Lacey! All of her pieces are wheel-thrown and hand painted and her love and awareness of color combinations is perfection! With Mother's Day fast-approaching, these make perfect gifts, as they are or filled with fresh flowers for mom.

Fun Day Out at the Coast!

Original publish date: Apr. 28th, 2012

A perfect day on the Maine coast.  Sun was shining wind was whipping and the colors were amazing.
Out near the crashing waves you could feel the spray on your face.  How the seals can swim in this turbulence is a wonder.  They just act so relaxed.
