Many thanks to the volunteers, visitors and artists who made the 7th annual Yarmouth Art Festival a success!
A total of 48 pieces were sold, which may be a record for the show. As important, the show was very well attended every day, with a huge turnout for the artists reception Thursday evening.
The show ran Wednesday through Saturday, Oct. 21-24, at St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church at 396 Gilman Road in Yarmouth. The show featured artists from throughout Maine, and this year's selections were from areas of the state as diverse as Indian Island, Lyman, Rangeley, and many points in between.
A record number of 382 pieces were entered for jurying this year. Jurors this year are artist Suzanne Harden; Anne Haas, Bowdoin College art librarian; and Peg Golden, owner of Greenhut Galleries in Portland.
The online show catalog displays all the pieces in the 2015 show, along with information about each artist. Pieces that were sold are marked SOLD in the title. View the catalog at https://www.flickr.com/photos/yarmouthartfestival/collections/7215765684...
