The works of fiber artist Sarah Carpenter, hand quilter Faith Gilbert and painter Lynne Harwood will remain on display at Centre Gallery at the Unity College Centre for the Performing Arts, 42 Depot St., through the end of January.

Harwood started painting in New York City. After moving to Maine in 1972, she started experimenting with rounded shapes “to embrace” her scenes, contrary to Manhattanesque rectangles. The paintings are about the round Maine landscape and about living in its cycles.

Gilbert, 27, Harwood’s daughter, is a quilt maker. She embroiders images, then quilts between in a style that evokes Impressionist painting.

Carpenter is a fiber artist who works with dyes, paints, threads and cloth. She strives to create a moment in time, a feeling, or a sense of place. The work usually depicts nature, her spiritual source.

The gallery is open when there are performances or other functions scheduled or by appointment at any time by calling 568-3147 or 948-7469. To see a performance schedule, visit
