A broad spectrum of exceptional Maine-made craft, art and fine food gifts are featured in the annual ArtFull Gifts show. This year’s sixth annual show will open Friday evening, Nov. 21, and run through Sunday afternoon, Nov. 23, at the Point Lookout Resort on Route 1. There is plenty of free parking just a few steps from the show space.

Featuring the work of 50 select exhibitors, the show also includes free demonstrations, delicious Maine-made foods and live music, all in a beautiful venue with a commanding view of Penobscot Bay. A Gala Preview Party from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday will kick off the weekend with the first opportunity to make selections from the exhibitors’ full array of merchandise. There will be complimentary nibbles from local food purveyors, a cash bar and live jazz by well-known local musician Phil Clement.

The show will continue Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 22 and 23, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Admission — $10 for the Friday night gala and $3 Saturday and Sunday — benefits Coastal Mountains Land Trust.

ArtFull Gifts welcomes showgoers with a crackling fire in a huge stone fireplace, setting the mood for discovering the creations of 50 fine Maine artists and artisans offering silver, gold, and mixed jewelry; clothing and accessories of natural fiber; oil and watercolor paintings; limited-edition prints and cards; carved and sculpted wood; ceramics; bath and body products; mixed media sculpture; felt hats, leather bags and other accessories; home furnishings; pottery; and artisan foods such as fine chocolates and more.

A number of crafting demonstrations will add an educational dimension to the weekend. On Saturday, the producers of Rose and Rugosa products will show how they prepare dulse seaweed for use in their bath and beauty products. On both Saturday and Sunday, Sally Demeter will demonstrate temari, the 1,000-year-old Japanese art of making colorful thread balls for use as holiday decorations. Candace Hill also will be demonstrating how she makes her felted hats. On Sunday, a group of fiber artists will be hand-spinning fleece into finished yarn. Also on Sunday, Sandy Cirillo will show how to paint on silk to create stunning scarves.

Many exhibitors say they welcome back customers who return every year with gift lists in hand, said Randy Fein of Lincolnville, the show’s executive director. She said this year’s show will feature a good blend of perennially popular exhibitors, as well as some newcomers. She suggests showgoers also take time to drive or hike to the top of the mountain for a panoramic view of the bay.

“Then come back down to the show and enjoy some wholesome food in the on-site café,” Fein said.

A strong advocate for Coastal Mountains Land Trust, Fein serves as the summer steward for Fernald’s Neck Preserve, one of the locations protected by the conservation group. CMLT provides opportunities for the public to access and explore natural places in our community, she said.

“I believe everyone benefits emotionally, spiritually and physically from unlimited access to these pristine natural habitats. I am so proud that our event’s admissions assist the mission of CMLT,” she said.

Point Lookout Resort is located in the heart of the Midcoast, between Camden and Belfast. For more information, visit artfullgifts.com or its Facebook page; email info@artfullgifts.com; or call Fein at 841-0013.
