The Gem Gallery is once again OPEN for summer! This unassuming venue at 62 Island Avenue on Peaks Island will now hang out the sign, 11 AM - 6 PM daily.
Summer resident Dustine Price's "Found Heart" is an exuberant mix of assemblage and wordplay. Dustine graduated from Maryland Institute College of Art and has taught art at all levels. Currently working in elementary schools and juggling small children, her work reflects an optimism and wit, with resourceful use of unexpected materials.
The opening reception was held Friday evening, June 25.
Dustine enjoys mixing media at every opportunity.
This small sculpture is like a curious cross between Buddha and Yellow Submarine.
Dustine identifies with her mermaid creation.
The upcoming schedule promises to be pretty lively:
7/1-7/7 Paul Brahms
7/8-7/14 Lavendier Myers
7/15-7/21 Diane Wiencke
7/22-7/28 Carol Cartier

We are only a breezy 15 minutes from Portland.
