Ed and Kay Botkin will exhibit their art work Friday through Sunday, Aug. 19 through 21, at the Ocean View Grange, 435 Port Clyde Road/Route 131. Show hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, and the public is invited to an opening reception Friday from 5 to 7 p.m.

This is the 12th year Ed has exhibited at the grange, and he will be showing more than 20 new works of realistic oil paintings depicting Midcoast Maine.

Four of his new works depict the buildings at the Robbins-Anderson Farm in Thomaston. Other paintings include views along the mainland coast, as well as scenes on Vinalhaven Island.

Kay is a well-known stained glass artist, Best of Show winner at the Stained Glass Association of America conference in Toronto; and selected to have one of her stained glass pieces presented at the USA Stained Glass Exhibit in Chartres, France. Now she uses her knowledge of glass to create a series of Glass & Granite sculptures.

The sculptures range in size from one to four feet tall and can be used outdoors, as well as in the home. A recent work utilizes dalle de verre glass (about an inch thick) inserted in a column of granite; other sculptures incorporate iridized textured glass and/or fused glass pieces she has fired in a kiln.

The Ocean View Grange is located between Tenants Harbor and Port Clyde, about three miles down the beautiful St. George peninsula from Tenants Harbor village. For more information, visit edbotkin.com or call the couple at 372-6369.
