Midcoast Maine continues to inspire generations of artists both renowned and emerging, some 100 of whom will come together for the 35th annual Carol Sebold Summer HarborArts Juried Arts & Crafts Show Saturday and Sunday, July 16 and 17 in the Camden Amphitheatre, Harbor Park and along Atlantic Avenue.

In the Camden area, creativity permeates everything, drawing from the rugged coastline and surrounding mountain views. A region that inspired three generations of Wyeths is home to one of the most popular and eclectic arts and craft shows in New England, HarborArts. Named for its founder and presented by the Camden-Rockport-Lincolnville Chamber of Commerce, this 35th summer show is now a two-day free celebration of the arts in and around downtown Camden and its harbor.

“HarborArts is a tradition here in the Midcoast region; it’s an event that showcases exceptional work, some of which is being created right before your eyes,” said Dan Bookham, the chamber’s executive director.

Featured fine works include watercolor, oil, acrylics and pastels blend with spectacular photography, sculpture and mixed media. Also on display are exquisitely designed jewelry, metal and woodcraft, pottery and fine-crafted furniture.

HarborArts runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. For more information, visit camdenharborarts.com or camdenme.org/event/harbor-arts-arts-and-crafts-show.
