Shaw Contemporary Jewelry final Opening Sept 5.

Shaw Contemporary Jewelry in Northeast Harbor is hosting a final Opening and Artists Reception  Sept 5, 5 – 7 pm.
Judy Taylor: Models in the Winter Studio
Judy immerses herself in painting the human form from live models. Nuances of personalities are brought forward that often relate to occupation, tempermenant, and social standing. Powerful is an adjective often mentioned in reference to her portraits.
Deborah Page: Painted Stories
Bar Harbor native Deborah rarely plans out a painting. She starts with free, playful mark making and builds visual texture with color, line, and shape. At some point in the process an image will appear. She plays and develops it further as things appear and disappear. The painting evolves in the same way you might write a story. They are playful and inviting.

Sam Shaw Jewelry Gallery Presents Geometric Realism/ Fractured Landscapes


Sam Shaw Jewelry Gallery  128 Main St., Northeast Harbor presents, Geometric Realism/ Fractured Landscapes by Jean Kigel of Waldoboro August 22 – September 5.   Meet the Artist on August 22 from 5-7 pm

Jean has applied to the Maine Landscape what a faceted gem does to light. She breaks it into geometric forms of rendered simplicity. The colors, forms, and details are familiar, but not in their correct place. Through her lens of abstraction, our beloved vistas become fresh and curious once again.  FMI contact 207-276 or

New Works at Shaw Jewelry


New works on view at Shaw Jewelry in Northeast Harbor

Peter Walls: Nature, Animals, Color and Beauty


The lightness of Peter’s gouaches, inks and prints originate in his deep appreciation of the available subjects in MidCoast Maine. Birds, trees, fishes and flowers swirl around in ocean currents and our gardens. With a hand in the decorative arts, his compositions are lyrical, optimistic and harmonious.


Alex Sepkus: Breathtaking Jewelry


We had to have more of this Lithuanian born New York jeweler because of the extraordinary beauty of his work. With the soul of a medieval stone church floor, and the precision of a rocket engineer, Alex makes heirloom pieces of breathtaking sensibilities. For two days only.
