A number of Midcoast artisans will be featured during the Blue Hill Fine Craft Show Saturday, July 23 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, July 24 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Blue Hill Consolidated School, located in the village center at 60 High St.

The show will feature work by 45 of Maine’s accomplished craftsmen including Lisa Svedburg and Thomas Whiting of Lincolnville’s Athenae; furniture by Geoffrey Warner; and weavings for the body and home by Chris Leith. In addition, visitors will find home accessories, blown glass, tiles, lamps, woven carpets, pottery, artist books, woodcarvings and more.

The show, organized by lighting craftsman Stuart Loten of Montville, is a purely invitational showcase and one of the few of its kind in Maine. By using the invitational format, quality and diversity is assured. Most of the craftsmen are nationally recognized, with some having shown at the most prestigious shows in the country including the Smithsonian Craft Show and the Philadelphia Museum Craft Show.

The show is indoors and runs rain or shine. Admission is $5, free for children younger than 17. To see samples from all the craftsmen with links to their websites and details about the show, visit BlueHillFineCraftShow.com.
