Lacey's delightful dandelion vases, named, "Itty Bitty"!

Poppy Bowl
Sunflower Serving Dish

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. When driving through beautiful down town Center Lovell, over looking Kezar Lake and the White Mountains, which still are capped in snow, stop in to see the other Laceypots pieces that are on display at the gallery.

You're Invited....

... To Our 9th Annual Artist Reception and Open House at Harvest Gold Gallery on July 8th from 3-6pm.



 RSVP to this event on Facebook

         The new art has arrived and it’s up and ready for summer!  This year, Harvest Gold Gallery is showing the largest collection of original fine art and crafts yet. There are many new works by our favorite artists and new artists have been added to the gallery as well.  It was a great winter for creating!

         Varvara Harmon, of Windham, is showing several of her new works including her amazing “Roses on Silk” original oil painting that has won many international awards.  It is done in the style of the old masters and so real you can feel the softness of the silk and almost smell the roses.  She has some new landscapes of special places like Kezar Lake and even one that combines the four seasons in one forest scene.

         Our local Lovell artist, Tom Merriam, known for his huge murals on the red barn of the Raymond and Casco Historical Society, has been busy with extra large paintings and his extra small, miniature paintings. Don’t be surprised to see some light-hearted bear carvings sprinkled around the gallery. Carving has always been a special passion for Tom. His new children’s books are now out. He has two so far.  Fun Stories and delightful illustrations, combined with the high quality cards that he has developed, make his work available to all. We are fortunate to have such talented people here in our community.

         One of the new artists this year is a young glass artist from Maine, Konrad Hunter.  He twists the light when it streams through his liquid like forms that hang in the window.  Lacey Pots has new peace bowls and chickadee plates in bright fun colors.  Sally Bags you know has lots of new fun styles for summer.  Their laptop bag combines with mix and match cosmetic bags to make a great set.  Bruce May had a great winter of woodturning.  Now with more people wanting to eat from natural wood bowls, he has delivered a beautiful cherry salad bowl and several personal sized bowls.  Wooden sandwich boards by a family business from Blue Hill finish the table.

         Come a see why Harvest Gold Gallery won Yankee Magazine’s Best Gallery with a view.  Have a glass of wine and meet the artists July 8th 3-6pm. Bathe yourself in the beautiful, amazing pieces created by your neighbors. Open daily and always on the web at harvestgoldgallery.com

I can't believe it is almost June!
With the winter we had this year it sometimes felt like we would never see summer. And now that it is so close it's hard to believe where the time went!?  We love all of the seasons here in Center Lovell Maine, but there is something invigorating about the summer! Bill's garden produces a bounty of yummy vegetables that he seamlessly whips up into tasty meals! Summer is the time of year when we ready our gallery walls with new artwork from around the country and then we through a little gallery opening to share with the community. Summer is also a time for us to reunite and catch up with our friends who summer at Lake Kezar. We also work with our brides and grooms on custom wedding jewelry, and help husbands pick out the perfect anniversary present. ahhh summer.
We have a lot going on this year, so I wanted to take a minute and share one of the many new things to our shop- this lovely Peace Bowl set arrived this week! Can't you imagine eating a large heaping of fresh salad or pasta out of these bowls!? yum.  
If you are in Maine this summer, stop by and say Hi!  or keep in touch with us by following our blog and becoming a fan on facebook!
