All The Buzz!
August 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Nine midcoast artists donated never-before-seen studies for some of their most notable works to benefit local conservation. The artists were Gary Akers, David Estey, Kathy Florance, Eric Hopkins, Jill Hoy, Jean Kigel, Greg Mort, Bjorn Runquist and Susan Van Campen.
Susan Baines, owner of The Kelpie Gallery in South Thomaston, collected, photographed, and cataloged the donated art, including a study for Greg Mort’s “One World,” an environmental piece inspired by President Barack Obama that hung in the White House alongside the final completed painting through January 20, 2017.
The benefit featured music by three-piece jazz ensemble Bel Isle Trio, Langlais signature cocktails, and smalls and appetizers made by Laura Cabot Catering and inspired by the preserve’s sculptures. Primrose Framing of Rockland framed the selected pieces, compliments of Jake Miller and First National Bank, and John Bottero of Thomaston Place Auction Galleries served as auctioneer.
