The Sebascodegan Artists Cooperative’s annual exhibit will move to a new location this year: the Orr’s Island Schoolhouse, where the show will run from Aug. 3-19. The cooperative will host an opening reception from 5-7 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 4.

Established in 1990, the cooperative first exhibited at the white chapel on Old Orr’s Island Road, high above Card Cove and Route 24 on Sebascodegan Island; then at Centennial Hall, a historic building on Harpswell Neck, across Route 123 from the Harpswell Historical Society Museum.

The cooperative has added six new artists this year. The exhibit will feature work by a total of 19 members in mediums that include oil, acrylics, watercolors, pastels, colored pencil, pottery, photography, wood and artifact art. The show will be open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

The Sebascodegan Artists Cooperative started with 11 friends who often painted together in Harpswell. The cooperative was created to exhibit original fine art by local artists.

The curator of the Sebascodegan Artists Cooperative is Louise Price. For more information about the cooperative, call Price at 207-751-3130, email lprice1820@gmail.com or find Sebascodegan Artists on Facebook.
