Lupine Gallery presents Harlow’s ‘Island Life’

Jun 22, 2018
Paintings by longtime season resident Joan Harlow are featured this summer at Monhegan’s Island Inn.

Monhegan — Lupine Gallery invites the public to a reception for the artist Joan Harlow Wednesday, July 27, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Island Inn, adjacent to the wharf.

Harlow first arrived on Monhegan Island in 1967 and has returned each year since, living in the cottage that once belonged to her great aunt, the portrait artist Alice Kent Stoddard. “Joan Harlow: Island Life,” an exhibit of oil paintings, presents a perspective both universal and personal. Landscape views are likely to be from her porch; and the still life, with her distinctive rendering of light and shadow, might capture a moment in the summer kitchen or a chair before a curtained window.

Harlow is a member of the New Hampshire Art Association, the Seacoast Art Association and the Women Artists of Monhegan Island. Her work has been exhibited at numerous galleries and at the Currier Museum of Art in Manchester, N.H.

“Joan Harlow: Island Life” will be on display daily until Oct. 7. For more information, call the Lupine Gallery at 594-8131 or visit
