Camden — Amid nature’s vibrant summer display, artists and craftspeople will present their own creations during the Carol Sebold Summer HarborArts Juried Arts & Crafts Show Saturday and Sunday, July 19 and 20.

Presented by the Penobscot Bay Regional Chamber of Commerce, this annual summer show has become a two-day festival of the arts alongside Camden’s scenic harbor. The event in its original location in Harbor Park also features exhibitor booths in the Camden Amphitheatre and along Atlantic Avenue.

HarborArts offers items for every taste and prices for every pocketbook. Art patrons will find works in watercolor, oil, acrylics and pastels, as well as photography, sculpture and mixed media. Fans of handcrafted wares can shop for pottery, glass, woodcrafts, jewelry and furniture.

A complete list of exhibitors and booth locations will be available at the Chamber information tent during the show, which will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.  Admission to the show is free and handicapped accessible.

Local inns, motels and other lodgings offer special packages to welcome guests for HarborArts, schooner sails and the amazing coastal panorama from nearby Mount Battie. For lodging, dining and area information and a free copy of Discover the Jewel of the Maine Coast, contact the Chamber at 596-0376 or visit penbaychamber.com.
