Maine Art Hill opens our summer season with the 7th Annual Choice Art Show. We are offering a sneak peek into the show Friday, June 8 during our Block Party, and then the show will open at 10 o’clock Saturday morning. Not only will you find many of this year’s Choice Show artists at the Block Party, several will be sticking around to welcome the first visitors to Shows the next morning.
We began with eighty-four original works from fourteen artists; six pieces each. It was then narrowed down to three pieces from each artist. These three are carefully “chosen” to be in the show. This is where it gets fun.
This year we have a new choice, The Designer’s Choice, chosen by none other than Kennebunkport’s own Louise Hurlbutt from Hurlbutt Designs. The next piece the artist chooses. This sounds easy, but they have such difficulty with this. Then finally there is the third piece for each artist, the People’s Choice, and that choice was up to you. By casting your vote for your favorite piece by each artist, you decided the last twelve paintings that will be featured.
Monday, June 5th we announced the “People’s Choice” winners.
If you haven’t already, we suggest you go to thekennebunkportfestival.com and buy your tickets for our Block Party to be one of the first to see these selections in person. Remember this is a ticketed event. The site will give you all the details. BUY TICKETS HERE.
On Saturday, June 9th, the 7th Annual Choice Art Show opens at Shows at Maine Art Hill on 10 Chase Hill in Kennebunk. Will your favorite make it to the walls of the gallery? Come in and find out. The show is open for three weeks, closing Thursday, June 28th. Remember – if you can’t find the piece you fell in love with, visit the artist’s page on our website or The Gallery at 14 Western Ave. All the works are far too beautiful not to showcase somewhere at Maine Art Hill.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
