‘ArtFull Gifts’ to support land trust
Northport — The annual “ArtFull Gifts” fine art and craft event supports local nonprofit organizations. This year, show organizers Randy Fein and Susan Pierce are sharing the success of the show with Coastal Mountains Land Trust.
“ ‘ArtFull Gifts’ chose to raise funds for Coastal Mountains Land Trust because their work supports a variety of key needs in the Midcoast area,” said artist and show director Fein. “CMLT helps protect our precious open space here in Midcoast Maine. Without conservation, artists and the folks of our community would no longer have the inspiration of endless views, with pristine natural places to explore.”
“Artfull Gifts” is held annually at Point Lookout Resort on Route 1. It is an invitational art and craft event featuring the work of 50 New England-based artists, artisans and artisanal food creators.
The 2012 show will open with a Gala Collectors Evening Friday, Nov. 16 from 5 to 8 p.m. with live jazz by Chris Poulin’s Shades of Blue. Attendees can enjoy a cash bar with delicious foods from fine local restaurants and handmade appetizers from local artisan food businesses while meeting the artists and selecting gifts made by talented exhibitors. Admission for the Gala is $10, valid for the entire weekend of shopping.
The show will continue Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 17 and 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Daily admission is $3. A percentage of all admissions benefit Coastal Mountains Land Trust.
