Baby, It's Cold Outside!

We love the winter here at Harvest Gold! It brings snow for skiing, hot chocolate for sipping, and cozy winter clothes like scarves and mittens. Even the animals love it! The best part of winter in Lovell is all of the beautiful scenery. With the mountains surrounding us and the many trees everywhere you look, there could not be a more perfect spot to paint a winter scene. Check out some of these amazing winter-themed paintings by various artists here at the gallery:

"Winter Cardinal" by Tom Merriam

"Phthalo Blue Ice On the Saco" by Rebecca Klementovich

"One Last Run" by Diane Scott

We have even more seasonal paintings on view here at the Gallery and on the website. We'd love to see you and show you what winter-themed art we have on display!

Thank You from Harvest Gold

2020 has been a year full of change, reflection, and supportiveness for each other all around. This year we were shown really how supportive our customers and friends truly are, and we cannot be more grateful for that. Let’s reflect back on this year. With our extremely successful drive-though art show kicking off the year, we had so much fun and learned a lot while changing around our usually annual events and adapting to the new normal. We had a dozen plein airs outside of the gallery, producing beautiful new art pieces. Lynda and Bill created a bundle of wonderful new jewelry, with designs never before seen! Each collection that came to Harvest Gold with a new season livened up the gallery and were loved by our dear customers.

Happy 2021 and we can't wait for an amazing year!

Snow Day in Lovely Lovell!

As you all have probably experienced there is a Nor'Easter among us! Snow day for Captain and his side kick Bill. We are hoping for a white Christmas this year and cannot wait to hit the slopes. Drive safe and stay warm out there! 

From your friends at Harvest Gold Gallery,

Local Lovell- Severance Lodge Club

Severance Lodge Club
The Severance Lodge Club has its beginnings dating back to the late 1800’s. Founded as Brown’s Camps, a popular hunting and fishing destination, Severance has evolved into a private community of comfortable, well-appointed vacation homes with its own clubhouse and gourmet restaurant, while retaining a sense of its rustic roots by blending in seamlessly amidst one of Maine’s most impressive remaining stands of white pine trees on its sixty acre property.

"In support of regional farmers, fishermen and food purveyors the Severance Lodge Club is proud to present our menu. The Severance Lodge Club prides itself on being selective and using only the freshest seasonal ingredients. Our meat, poultry and seafood is all locally and regionally sourced and delivered regularly to guarantee freshness."

Severance Lodge Club has been home to many of our pop-up plein airs, meaning paintings in the gallery feature it's gorgeous view! Support Severance Lodge club by becoming seasonal summer members of their dining room, and come check out the inspired paintings here at Harvest Gold.

Artist Spotlight: Clinton Jones

Clinton Jones is a skilled boat and car mechanic by trade and a metal sculptor, fisherman, and boating enthusiast on the side. He is sometimes known as the Island Mechanic of Chebeague Island. Jones went to school to be a mechanic and also pursued welding, through which he discovered his passion for creating metal sculptures. His pieces often capture Maine wildlife, such as a heron or a trout. Jones sees his metal art as time capsules that will last hundreds of years, each piece telling a story that will last through the ages.

When he's not in his workshop, Jones can often be found working on cars on Chebeague Island. Maine islands that don't have state maintained roads do not require regular car inspections. Island cars are often old "beaters",  held together with a lick and promise, and Clinton Jones is the go-to mechanic on Chebeague, a position that has taken years to cultivate.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from Harvest Gold! This morning Lynda captured this beautiful and spooky picture of the Halloween blue moon over Kezar Lake and the White Mountains.

While traditional trick or treating has been put on hold due to Covid, Lovell has improvised! Thanks to the Lovell UCC Board of Christian Education, a drive-up trick or treat event will be taking place from 4-5:30pm this evening. In addition to dispensing candy, the Church is also providing a photo booth for even more Halloween fun.

Several businesses, including Harvest Gold, are participating in this event: Center Lovell Market, Designs by Diana Bags, Kezar Realty, Rosie's, Delta Masonic Lodge, Molloy Energy, Oxford County Sheriff, Micklon Tree, Landscaping and Excavation, Greater Lovell Land Trust, and possibly others. The new Lovell Area Food Pantry is hosting a food drive at the Fire Station and will also be giving out candy!

Bill and Lynda have prepared plenty of bags of goodies and can't wait to see everyone out trick or treating!

Thank you to the Lovell UCC for sponsoring this event and bringing some cheer to the season!
