Camden — Visitors were given an opportunity to take in beautiful views along with displays from more than 60 artists at the annual Harbor Arts & Books Fair Saturday in Camden.

The festive event is scheduled for both Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 29 and 30, at the Camden Public Library and Amphitheatre as well as the scenic Harbor Park.

Art patrons were treated to works in watercolor, oil, acrylics and pastels, as well as photography, sculpture and mixed media. Also available were handcrafted pottery, glass, woodcrafts, jewelry and furniture.

Harbor Arts & Books is one of the Camden library's biggest fundraisers and is sponsored by the Reny Charitable Foundation, with additional support from Camden Riverhouse Hotel & Inns, Lyman-Morse and Treekeepers.
