Everyone needs a little color at this time of year, as we wait for winter to end. That is the reason for an exhibit at the Northeast Harbor Library, called Color in Winter. Four local women artists will exhibit their work adding color to the environment from March 1st until April 30.
Judith Blank of Bar Harbor will show eleven of her cotton rag rugs, woven from spring through the fall of 2021. Nancy McCormick of Seal Harbor will exhibit her paintings, some mixed media collages and some egg tempera panels. Leanne Nickon of Bar Harbor will exhibit her hand stitched and appliqued compositions, which are almost like miniature paintings. Lucy Tracy of Bar Harbor will show her recent banners, quilted and embroidered, depicting environmental themes, as well as collars, in the style of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, made of bark and other fibers, using the netting technique used in bait bags.
All four of these mature artists are largely self directed. Their work has evolved from their long experience living here on Mount Desert Island.
The exhibit is available for viewing during the library’s operating hours. The Mellon Room is occassionally booked for private use, please call ahead to check availability if you are making a special trip to see the exhibit, 207 276 3333.
