To see more of Leigh’s work…click on the image to go to her portfolio page  

Our February / March SACAP Featured Artist Show…“Media Journey : Fiber, Paint, Digital & ‘?’ ” with featured artist, Leigh C. Griffith; began with an artist reception on Fri. March 6th…her show ran from Feb. 27 until March 20th. There was media coverage by WHOU Radio’s Kristen Wells, on their “Weekend Primer”…as well as mentions throughout the week on their “Community Calendar”. There was also an article about the show in the following week’s Houlton Pioneer Times, written by Joe Cyr

The show was well attended, and what was very striking aside from Leigh’s very creative and beautiful quilts, watercolors & acrylic paintings, cards, wearable textiles and digital ‘second-life’ designs…was that everywhere you looked, even above your head, there was another surprise piece just waiting to be discovered! These photos show a few examples of the many amazing pieces by Leigh, that are on exhibit now. Her self-portrait, is of her as a harpist for the Kindred Harps…another of Leigh’s many talents!

The next featured artist show at the Blue Moon Gallery will actually feature the artwork of many budding artists. Our annual student show, “Seeds of Creativity” will run the entire month of April, starting Friday April 3rd to May 15th. The opening reception will be held on Friday April 10th, from 5-7 pm. It is definitely worth the trip down to see the current work of Aroostook county’s future artists in the making…..we’re located at 66 Main Street in Market Square, Houlton.

We hope you will join us!

A great opportunity for children 8 yrs. & older, youths and the young-at-heart to acquire some art skills, enhance their self-esteem, as well as to make something for them to keep or to give as a gift this holiday season!

Some of the other valuable things that students taking Harriet’s class have been learning in addition to the actual wire-wrapping process are: acquiring entrepreneurial skills in order to have a basic knowledge of setting-up and displaying their work for craft fairs or shows…as well as how to be organized and prepared. She has also been empowering them to gain confidence in choosing the materials they need for creating each of their pieces, as well as helping them to become familiar with how the time required for fabrication as well as the costs involved, determine how they will price their finished work.

SACAP Featured Artist – Nov. 2014 : Katie Huntley – Up-cycling, Past, Present and Future

 

Featured Artist – Nov. 2014 : Katie Huntley – “Up-cycling, Past, Present and Future”

 sacap artist katie huntley snowflake pendant

This month’s SACAP Featured Artist is Katie Huntley. Her show “Up-cycling, Past, Present and Future” will begin on Fri. Nov. 14th with an opening reception from 5-7 pm.

The show will run for two weeks; until Nov. 28th. Katie & her family own and operate ‘Squid Ink Jewelry’ and their strong ties to Aroostook county, recently prompted her mother-in-law and current board chairperson, Harriet Huntley; to invite Katie to represent her family’s unique style of jewelry-making at the Blue Moon Gallery.

After they were married, Katie lived in Woodland with her husband Akoni who grew up in Sherman. They currently reside in Dover-Foxcroft with their two-year old daughter Lelah. The entire family…Katie, her husband, and her father Tory Farris; who is a painter & sketch artist still living in Woodland, are involved in making Squid Ink Jewelry a success. Even Lelah, likes to join in!

Their methods have taken them from bead work, to sculpting, and most recently metal working. The work they enjoy most is being able to take a piece of treasured silverware that was handed down from generation to generation and create a beautiful piece of jewelry that will have lasting memories.

The name they have chosen for their upcoming show “Up-cycling, Past, Present and Future”… reflects their commitment at Squid Ink Jewelry to preserve nature in all its beauty.

Below are some examples of Katie’s work:
