BAR HARBOR — The founders of the Asticou Connection Gallery will hold a fall open house celebration on Sunday, Oct. 13, from 4-7 p.m.
The gallery, founded by Ken, Rick and Tom Savage, features the works of over forty local and renowned painters, furniture makers, jewelers, bird carvers, relief carvers and marine half model makers.
The gallery was created as a way of offering a forum and showcase for the creative talents of area artisans. The gallery’s name- Asticou-was meant to remind people of the small village on Mount Desert Island established by the Savage family in 1798 and the name of the first recorded American tribal leader. The goal of the gallery has been to serve as a connection to the creativity of the generations who have been inspired by Mount Desert.
This Sunday’s open house will celebrate the work of seven craftsmen working in wood including Jim Bright, Terry Stanley, Ken Savage, Rick Savage, Ed Hawkes, Allen Beaman and Bill Sanborn.
The gallery is located in Town Hill at 1302 State Highway 102.
