Figure Landscape Mash up
Sam’s third presentation of fantasy figurative landscapes and sculptures. New this year are seven foot tall towers of abstracted nudes. Long legs, balancing arms, and precarious situations. The paintings are male and female nudes, often dancing and cavorting in an imaginary setting.
Mind’s Eye, Past and Present
In the artwork and mono-prints of Judith Brust you can see the world: the infinite and the finite, the mixture of rolling exploration of space and the eternal grasp for the fourth dimension that lies beyond what our mind and eye can grasp. Judith will be having a contemporaneous showing at the Schoodic Institute at Acadia National Park.
McTeigue Estate Jewelry
August 16–18 ONLY
Our third presentation of this venerable New York based estate jewelry firm established in 1895 will be presenting fabulous jewels for three days only. Kate Fisher, born in Australia, and an expert for decades, will be exhibiting magnificent pieces that were in high fashion from before you were born.
Jewelry Meets Natural History
Vermont based Stacy has an obvious love of the natural world. She casts natural forms and textures into precious metals to make exciting jewelry akin to a cabinet of curiosities. A student of biology in university, her appreciation of the science/art connection is visceral.

Hughes-Bosca: Bountiful Rarity
Largest collection will be August 2–4. Good things need to be replayed, this is our 9th show. They fabricate 18 kt. jewelry using gemstones, colored diamonds, and artifacts from distant corners. It has weight, glowing surface, quiet confidence, and un-restrained boldness. The soulful power of wearing this work will enhance your mood and presence. Come meet our dearest collaborators, Caro-Gray Bosca and Mary Hughes, Thursday through Saturday.
David Brewster: Strength Through Art
Athletic and muscular paintings of Mount Desert Island that appear as landscapes on the verge of explosion. He paints in plein air, but his most important tool is his energetic strokes, bold colors, angular planes, and perspective. David summered on MDI in his youth, still has connections to our island, and currently lives in Vermont.
Katey Brunini: Exotica in Jewelry
Largest collection will be August 2–4. Sam Shaw Gallery is most excited to introduce world-renowned jeweler, K. Brunini, of California this summer. For our premier exhibition, K. Brunini will exhibit her unique, organic designs, featuring raw and refined precious works of exotic art and rare gemstones, which creatively incorporate sustainable and unexpected alternative materials.

Petra Class: The Aesthetics of Materials
This will be the second exhibit from Petra whose work we have presented for decades. She has a playful color palate, using gems connected like constellations in 18 kt gold. They are elegantly simple but dense with beauty.
Don Best: Carved Figures and Fantasy
Our second exhibition, Don carves wood and assembles the parts into folk art sculptures that have allegorical and metaphorical attributes. Cats and animals are personified; ravens given attitude, and fishes sail across the night shy. The results are delightful, smile inducing, story telling, imaginative and soulful.
Michele Mercaldo: A Modern Edge
Michele Mercaldo’s clean-lined designs appeal to those with an appreciation for a modern aesthetic. Meticulous craftsmanship is evident in each piece, handmade in gold, platinum, palladium or a combination. The resulting effortless look is at once contemporary yet classic.
Atmospheric Blending of Sea and Air
Landscape and seascape paintings composed of muted tones. Deborah reduces scenes to their barest elements to get to the core of what we are seeing. She creates somber mood of tranquility and peace generated through sketch book research and memory.

Pre Columbian Masterpieces:
Taino Artifacts with Larry Roberts
The Taino people lived in Hispaniola from roughly 1000-1500 AD. They left a brilliant record of astonishing stone artifacts relating to their cosmic beliefs and their consumption of psychoactive drugs. Mr. Roberts will bring a hundred or more of anthromorphic and zoomorphic artifacts. He is a published author. These are the real things. Astonishing! With a presentation at the Northeast Harbor Library on Friday, July 6 at 5:30PM.
Contemporary Classic Jewelry
Largest grouping from Thursday–Saturday, July 5-7
Barbara’s recognizable style consists of distinctive visual vocabulary defined by matte and burnished surfaces. Modern aesthetics and innovative construction meet old world craftsmanship and seductive materials. She grew up in a vineyard in Germany, and will be here Thursday evening through Saturday.
Beauty and Refinement for the Body
A new jeweler for us, Audrius works in 18 kt. gold and gemstones with an emphasis on color and form with inspiration from the natural world. His work is refined and wearable, but with an exotic reverence for materials and a keen appreciation of how jewelry fits on the human form.
Hoary Men and Abandoned Women
Jessica grew up on Swans’s Island and went to Art School in San Fransisco. She paints the men in her past, and the women in her imagination. Magical Realism and Down East Maine provide beginning and ending points of reference for this talented young artist.
