Asticou open house



BAR HARBOR — The Asticou Connections Gallery in Town Hill will be hosting a reception July 7 celebrating the work of Scott Baltz, Bethany Savage, Joe Tracy and Obadiah Bourne Buell.

The reception will be held from 5pm to 7pm. Good cheer and light refreshments provided by the Town Hill Bistro will complement conversations with the featured artists.

Scott Baltz has made Mount Desert Island his home for 14 years. Originally a large format photographer, he began working in oils, inspired by the combination of sea, mountains and forest. His work reflects his interest in movement and transitional light. Mr. Baltz’s work is represented in several galleries and widely collected.

Bethany Savage lives and works in Lamoine. Her original designs and hand-crafted jewelry have garnered wide recognition. Working in the lost wax process, Ms. Savage’s gold and sterling silver casts of shells, sand dollars, dolphins and other coastal icons are combined with semi-precious stones to create a sense of style, superb craftsmanship and an appreciation of the coast of Maine.

Joe Tracy owns and operates Joseph Tracy Woodworks in Mount Desert. Best known for his unique and imaginative lamps, tables and furniture, his work is collected throughout the United States.

Obadiah Bourne Buell is a self taught craftsman who learned stone-working at an early age. His fanciful granite sculptures and practical household creations reflect his lifelong interest in the possibilities of design with this native stone.

The Asticou Connections Gallery is located on 1302 State Highway 102 in the Bar Harbor village of Town Hill, next door to the Camden National Bank.
