CAMDEN â€“ In a region this inspirational, transition was inevitable. What started as a little show 33 years ago for local two-dimensional artists has grown into an event as diverse, beautiful and popular as the outdoor venue that has served it for more than three decades.
The summer HarborArts Juried Arts & Crafts Show, hosted by the Camden-Rockport-Lincolnville Chamber of Commerce in Camden, Maine, returns for its 34th year on the weekend of July 17 & 18.
Close to 100 artists and artisans will display, discuss and sell their work in a festive open marketplace nestled beside Penobscot Bay â€“ the same land and seascapes that inspired Carol Sebold and three generations of Wyethâ€™s.
Patrons will find work that appeals to every taste and budget. Fine works in watercolor, oil, acrylics, and pastels blend with spectacular photography, sculpture and mixed media. High design jewelry, metal and woodcraft, pottery and exquisite furniture is also available.
Exhibitors line Camdenâ€™s Atlantic Avenue, spill into Harbor Park, and surround the adjacent Camden Amphitheater â€“ all overlooking a harbor that hosts a fleet of authentic windjammers.
Patrons will find the accommodations as diverse and elegant at the show itself. Historic inns and B & B’s provide an intimate lodging experience. Four-diamond restaurants offer the worldâ€™s best lobster and seafood fare. All are within minutes of the HarborArts exhibition area.
This yearâ€™s show is dedicated to show founder and artist Carol S. Sebold who recently passed away. If it were not for Carol the show and all the joy in brings to so many would not be what it is today. We are thankful for the work Carol did in bringing this show to Camden and look forward to continuing the show for many years to come.
