“Fashion wasn’t what you wore some place anymore; it was the whole reason for going.” Andy Warhol, a statement Bar Harbor, Maine artist not only follows but it is the reason to attend an event or gala as fashion is truly an inspiration for his work.
The September 1st , Art Walk Bar Harbor will be no exception with the theme “Fashion is Art” and fashion will prevail at D’Alessio Gallery as D’Alessio himself will be creating a journey from the abstract to couture as he paints live on a 10’ x 10’ canvas!
True, it’s the fashion look that speaks and inspires Russell but he is also inspired by the attitudes and tries to capture the gestures and moods seeking the true internal phenomena of the feminine form.
On this evening bold colors and his distinctive line will turn this blank canvas into a fashion runway presenting new works of art with his iconic look, blending graphics, color, and form into a sublime mix that is truly his own. Art Walk Bar Harbor, Downtown, D’Alessio Gallery, 12 Mt. Desert Street, 6 – 9 p.m. More information on this event or the artist visit www.rdalessioart.com

Together with the Guild’s established member artisans, the Directions show brings new exhibitors to Bar Harbor. New member Joel Hokkanen, a woodworker from Rockport, Maine, will exhibit his one-of-a-kind, stunning lamps. Inspired by the curves and lines in nature, Joel’s wood and glass lighting will bring a warm glow and sculptural accent to the home that is both beautiful and practical. “My end-goal for any project is a piece that feels organic and natural. I look for beauty inherent in shape and form, rather than added ornamentation.” – Joel Hokkanen
Other first time, juried, exhibitors at the Directions show include; Jennifer Armstrong – fiber, Tim and Liza Fisher – wood and clay and Catherine Worthington – fiber.
Returning Guild artisan and ceramist, Jonathan White of South Portland, Maine says, “I see beauty in both natural and industrial objects. A steel mill furnace being reclaimed by rust is as pleasing to me as the first fiddleheads of spring pushing from the ground.” This duality is evident in his fascinating sculpture and pottery – both in his design and rich, flowing matte glazes.
Attendees of the show will shop for unique, handcrafted objects inside the event center as well as under a large tent outdoors on the lawn. Fine craft in wood, metal, clay, fiber, glass and mixed media will be shown at the 42nd Annual Mount Desert Island Directions Fine Craft Show – July 28, 29 & 30, 2017.
