It is all about the heart of the home at the latest Deer Isle Artists Association Gallery show, “DISH(e)S, Table For Two” which runs from May 20–June 2. Featuring items related to the table, this is also the DIAA’s yearly scholarship show, where artists contribute fifty percent of their earnings to scholarships for Deer Isle Stonington High School students who wish to pursue their artistic interests.
Visitors will find a wide variety of table related art at the gallery, including clay, ceramics, glass, linens, candle stick holders, baskets, and serving pieces. Table settings will be enhanced by representations of the theme, featuring photography, watercolors, and oils.
Artists contributing work to this show are Leslie Anderson, Cynthia Bourque Simonds, Chuck Collison, Dorothy Doubleday, Judith Felch, Jill Finsen, Amber Gentry, Jeri Gillin, Leslie Miller Landrigan, Melody Lewis-Kane, Deborah Lothrop, William Lukens, David McBeth, Diane Maguire-Horton, David Simonds, Walter Smalling, Tracy Van Buskirk, Pat White, and Alice Wilkinson.
The Deer Isle Artists Association Gallery is located at 15 Main Street in Deer Isle Village, and is open daily from 10:00AM to 6:00 PM.
