‘Art in the Churchyard’
Rockport — ‘Art in the Churchyard,’ a mixed media show featuring local artists and crafters, will take place rain or shine Saturday, Aug. 25 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. under a big tent in the backyard of the Rockville Community Chapel, rain or shine. Belfast Bay Fiddlers, calling themselves a loosely organized group of amateur musicians devoted to playing and sharing traditional fiddle music, will perform from noon to 1 p.m.
Art media will include watercolor, encaustics, fabric, photography, cards, collage, jewelry and handmade lamp shades. Kathy Lane, who exhibits her paintings at Winding Way Studio in Rockland; Kendra Denny, who recently showed her work at Amalfi on the Water; Sue Reed, who produces jewelry; and photographer Lorrain Francis are just a few of the artists participating.
Inside the chapel, quilts of all shapes and sizes, hand-stitched, machine-stitched, antique to modern will be exhibited, and a quilt rack made by local cabinetmaker and boatbuilder Albert Brackett will be raffled off. Also inside the chapel will be a display of Guatemalan textiles, the property of Susan Ward who lived in Guatemala from 1984 to 1986. Ward worked for the Summer Institute of Linguistics, teaching children, and traveling extensively through the country.
The Rockville Community Chapel is located at 87 Old Rockland St. For more information, visit its Facebook page or rockvillemechapel.org.
