MELANGE encore

Join us on Sunday, December 4, 1:30–3:30 PM for DIAA's second session of "ART matters 2", an opportunity for artists to share their work and talk about it with the public. The program will feature Maine artists Julie Morringello, Carolyn Walton, and Ellen Wieske.

The artists work with a variety of materials including wood, metal and canvas. They will bring examples of their work to discuss with each other and the audience. DIAA Board Member Hub White will serve as moderator.

About the Artists

Trained as an artist, woodworker and industrial designer, in 2011 Julie Morringello decided to merge her diverse skills to create Modernmaine, a company focused on the creation of contemporary, artist-made lighting.  Julie’s work blends her knowledge of functional design and manufacturing processes with a love of materials, self-expression and expert craftsmanship."

Carolyn Walton is a full-time artist who recently moved to Deer Isle. Painting professionally for 20 years, she is known for her atmospheric plein air and studio landscapes. Her work is shown in galleries and juried exhibitions nationally, and she has earned a number of awards. Primarily an oil painter throughout her career, she is now also painting with open acrylics as she explores more abstraction in her landscapes and larger studio pieces.

Ellen Wieske is an artist and educator who works in many materials. She teaches and exhibits her work internationally.  She maintains Dowstudio, her studio/Gallery with wife, potter Carole Ann Fer, on Deer Isle in down east Maine and is the assistant director at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts.

Following artists' presentations and discussions, a reception follows with coffee from 44 North Coffee, tea and cake.
