For more information, click on above Image

Arts in the Park is one of the most respected fine arts and crafts festivals in Midcoast Maine. The variety of artwork and crafts is outstanding, and continuous live music and the smells of freshly grilled food add to the festival atmosphere. The venue is undeniably beautiful: set on the water's edge, right downtown, with sailboats and dinghies moored a few feet away.

June Art's Walk Artist is Vermonter Carolyn Guest
of Sheep Shear Cuttings Artwork.

Carolyn creates original art by cutting paper with sheep shears. This rudimentary tool challenges her to push the limits of fine detail to her designs. She also cuts silhouettes of individuals in person using a "look and cut" technique to capture a person's essence in profile, using her scissors to "draw" as she cuts.
