Alison Dibble, “Frog Eggs”


An opening reception with the artists will be held on Sunday, June 5, from 4:00 – 6:00, and all are invited to attend. The DIAA gallery is open from 10AM – 6PM daily, and is located at 15 Main Street, Deer Isle Village. (207) 348-2330.

What does blue mean to you? Sea and sky? Blooming hydrangeas? Come see what it means to artists at the Deer Isle Artists Association in their newest show, “Blue Shines Through,” which opens on June 3 and runs through June 16. Appearing in this show will be Mary Bracy Martin, Alison Dibble, Glenn Felch, Jeri Gillin, David Kofton, David McBeth, Robert Starkey, Hub White, and Pat White. These artists represent many different styles and mediums.

Robert Starkey is inspired by the landscape and works “en plein air” with pencil, watercolor, pastel, and oil. While he is initially inspired by the land’s color statement and visual drama, while he is actually painting, the mood or poetry of the place becomes the challenge he strives to capture. David McBeth, a potter and a professor at the University of Tennessee, serves as President of the Deer Isle Artists Association. He utilizes a variety of clays and glazes to form his unique work, which can be found in many galleries around the peninsula. Pat White designs and creates beautiful textiles from felt. Her designs are colorful and exciting, and each piece is truly one of a kind.
