The 10th annual Yarmouth Art Festival was a great success!
Thanks to the artists, volunteers, visitors, and buyers who made the 10th annual Yarmouth Art Festival successful.
The show was held Oct. 24-27, 2018 at St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church, 396 Gilman Road in Yarmouth.
Hundreds of art lovers visited the show both during its regular hours and during the popular artists reception Thursday evening, Oct. 25. Enjoy an album of photos from the reception.
The show was successful from a sales standpoint also. Forty-nine pieces were sold for gross sales of nearly $14,000, before commissions.
Jurors for the 2018 show were Bob Keyes, arts writer for the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram, and Peg Golden, founder and former owner of Greenhut Gallery in Portland. Bob and Peg have each agreed to serve as jurors again in 2019.
The event was created in 2009 to showcase Maine artists in painting, drawing, sculpture and photography. Entry fees and sale commissions support St. Bart’s programs, including contributions and member support of local community services such as Friendship House, Yarmouth Community Housing Initiative, St. Elizabeth’s Jubilee Center in Portland, and the Compassionate Housing Initiative for New Mainers.
