These few weeks were experimental for us to see what the potential of the Artists Retreat Studios & Gallery are and after yesterday I am very optimistic. Next year we will be ready to start the season around Memorial Day since we won't have to renovate and furnish. Time to think about making a reservation for next year!
Next week Michael and I will be taking much of the art work, plus some new fabric creations of Trina over to Lubec Landmarks. Michael and I have been busy preparing for our first joint show which is titled the Geometry of Nature: Two Visions which will be held August 14th to September 3rd at the Mulholland Market Gallery which is part of Lubec Landmarks, a local non profit trying to preserve the smokehouses which are part of Lubec's heritage. After that we will end our season on Campobello Island and Lubec. During our show in Lubec, we will not have the Artists Retreat Studios and Gallery open so I can do some necessary outdoor painting on our Campobello Island home.
The Two Stop Studio Tour will be our end of the season grand finale. On September 7th we will open both Friar's Bay Studio Gallery and the Artists Retreat Studios & Gallery for our final sales days of the season. This will replace the Two Countries, One Bay Studio Tour which we used to do in September. Next year we will begin another studio tour without the assistance of the Tides Institute since they are no longer promoting studio tours. That studio tour will be called the Quoddy Artists Studio Tour.
Below are some pictures of various parts of the house.
