This year is Lynda and Bill's 25th year of opening Harvest Gold Gallery! 35 years ago, Lynda and Bill opened Harvest Gold Jewelry, but it never became a gallery until 10 years later, showcasing handmade jewelry as well as featured local Maine artists! they found the perfect location nestled in Center Lovell, and have since been appraised for the beautiful view inside and out!
"Hard to say which is better: the gold jewelry and other fine craftwork inside the gallery or the views outside over Kezar Lake to the mountains." - Yankee Magazine
We here at Harvest Gold Gallery are so happy that we have been able to supply our local customers with the most pristine pieces of fine art possible! Here's to many more years of Harvest Gold Gallery! Thank you!

With February ending, the season of winter is beginning to wrap up. Warm days are more common, severe snowfall happens less, and soon, the snow will begin to recede. Thus, we implore you to get some skiing in this season! There's not much time left, and the experience of going down the mountains of Maine is an absolute must!
Night skiing on mountains such as Shawnee Peak is an experience unlike any other!
Calling all ring lovers! Today, we're going to showcase some of our designs that are well loved!
Tree of Life is one of our most praised designs!
"Tree of Life: An ancient symbol of mankind's existence on Earth~growing toward an understanding of peace, balance, and unity in life with hope and love for all."
Our Intertwined design is another one of our best sellers!
"A twist, a braid, intertwined gold- the perfect symbol to represent your union, your love, and your friendship."
Our stackable rings are another one of our most appreciated, most likely due to the fact that with them, it's easy to stack more than 1 ring on a finger!
For today's Artist Spotlight, we're going over Diane Scott. Diane Scott is a local Maine painter who specializes in beautiful oil paintings depicting, primarily, scenes in nature.
This painting is a great example of Diane Scott's use of color and texture to showcase how the light reflects. If you look closely enough, even with the broad strokes, you can see the waterfall's reflection on the water, showing the line of motion.
"Glitter (Upper Kimball Pond)"
This is another painting that shows Diane Scott's expertise with lighting. This one in particular showcases how light reflects through leaves and trees during Autumn.
"One Guard in the Gap"
This is one of Diane Scott's more structured paintings, the top of the tree is painted with beautiful detail, and the mountains rising in the background gives off a sense of height that is hard to put into words.
"My main focus as I mature as an artist has become to find my authentic voice, to embrace it, to protect and defend it, to nurture it, to hold it close to my heart, as I would an imperfect child!"
With the snowy new season, we at Harvest Gold encourage you to go out and have a fun day skiing! Whether it be at a resort or a local mountain, these snowy storms will provide the perfect area for you to ski!
"Night Skiing: Sterling Silver Pendant"
This beautiful pendant is perfect for all those ski lovers in your life, especially the ones who enjoy the magical winter nights of Maine.
"First Snow at Tuckerman's Ravine" by Carol Novotne
This painting surely reminds us of the start of winter, when snow began to peek through the mountains and we all got excited to start the ski season!
Come see more wintery pieces at Harvest Gold Gallery!

Can you believe it's already 2022?
Here in Maine, we're having one of the coldest winters in recent years! Last Wednesday dropped in the negatives, without even breaking into double digits in some places.
We're having a chilly time here in Maine, and we are looking forward to summer, but in no time we'll be missing winter and skiing as well. Enjoy the winter while you can and snuggle up next to a fire. Happy New Year from us to you!
