Barbara Ernst Prey, a longtime seasonal resident of St. George, rubs shoulders with fellow “cover artist” William Wegman at Down East Magazine’s Art of Giving Gala in Portland.

Port Clyde — “American Contemporary: 40 Years Painting Maine,” Barbara Ernst Prey’s annual exhibition, has been extended through Labor Day at Blue Water Fine Arts, Main Street/Route 131 in the village.

Earlier this month, Prey participated in the Down East Magazine’s 60th anniversary Art of Giving Gala, choosing Bowdoin College Museum of Art to receive $10,000 from the donation of her painting “Nocturne IV,” featured on one of six inside covers of the magazine’s August issue. A new limited edition signed and numbered print release of “Nocturne IV,” produced by U.L.A.E., is included in the artist’s annual exhibition.

“As adjunct faculty at Williams College, I am thrilled to support a small college museum in this way,” said Prey.

Blue Water Fine Arts is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and by appointment. For more information, call 372-8087.
