TENANTS HARBOR — Mars Hall Gallery, 621 Port Clyde Road, offers three ongoing shows this fall and will participate in the St. George Business Alliance event “Touring Peninsula Art” Saturday, Sept. 17, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. “Artists Choice” in the main gallery features an eclectic mix of paintings by watercolorists Leo Brooks, Linda Funk, Nat Lewis, Cam Noel, Elaine Reed and Carl Sublett; acrylic and oil paintings by Nancy Baker, Jeannette Steele Esposito, Kris Johnson, Sharon Larkin, Maurice Michel Lode, Elaine Niemi, Jimmy Reed, Manuel Rincon, Russell Smith and Ron Weaver; and mixed media collage by Eleanor Zuccola.

As a tribute to Ukraine, artists were asked to paint sunflowers with part of the proceeds going to Ukraine. As paintings have sold, more have been painted. The “Tower of PEACE” show features works by five gallery artists and guest artist James Zoller.

Original paintings from the book “The First Blade of Sweetgrass,” illustrated by Nancy Baker, are showcased along with signed copies of the book. The book has won several awards, including the 2021 Maine Humanities Council and Maine’s Center for the Book selecting “Sweetgrass” to represent Maine in the Library of Congress’s annual National Book Festival; 2021 Bank Street Best Children’s Books of the Year; 2022 Lupine Award; 2022 Association for Library Services’ 60 Notable Younger Children’s Books; and the Maine Literary Award Winner for 2022 Book Award for Children’s.
