    The 2014 show featured 80 Maine artists, from Augusta to Brownfield to Kennebunkport, exhibiting 162 pieces, selected by a panel of jurors from among nearly 350 pieces submitted. A total of 33 pieces were sold, for total sales of $12,535. The 2014 jurors were artist Suzanne Harden; Anne Haas, Bowdoin College art librarian; and Elizabeth Moss, owner of Elizabeth Moss Gallery in Falmouth. (2015 jurors will be announced soon)
