Fabric coral reef exhibit this week at Fryeburg Fair

In today’s Sun Journal newspaper writer Jaime McLeod shares information about The Maine Reef Project. It is a satellite of the Worldwide Hyperbolic Crochet Reef Project is behind the amazing exhibit at the Fryeburg Fair.

“This year’s exhibition is much more ambitious, not only because it brings together the work of dozens of individual crafters united by a single theme, but also because Bellew intends to transform the space into an under-sea paradise for the mostly crocheted coral creations she has been collecting since last summer.”

Sounds like a place that you might want to hop in your car and take a ride to this week. The exhibit is in the fairground’s Fiber Center.


Art in the Heart

Art teachers travel from a distance to attend the first Art in the Heart meeting of the school year

Thirty two art educators traveled to UMaine Orono for the first Art in the Heart meeting of the school year. The meetings provide an update for teachers but so much more is gained. The importance of taking the time to connect face-to-face is invaluable. The conversations are brief but meaningful. The farthest traveled is Millinocket, the closest is from Orono. The distance doesn’t matter when folks can connect with colleagues who share so many of the same experiences in their schools across Maine.

Thank you to UMaine arts professors Laurie Hicks and Connie Carter for hosting the meeting on campus.

Waterville High School’s Suzanne Goulet and Belfast High School’s Heidi O’Donnell engage in conversation after the meeting.
