Marianne Smith

The Camden Public Library and artist Colin Page, owner of Page Gallery, are collaborating to present “Camden on Canvas,” a plein-air fundraiser being held in Camden and surrounding communities, July 29 to July 31.

For the second time, twenty notable New England landscape artists will paint, en plein-air, at multiple local sites from Friday morning, July 29, to noon on Sunday, July 31. The public is invited to visit the Camden on Canvas Information Tent at the Camden Public Library entrance on Atlantic Avenue. There, visitors will find information about the participating artists and a map to the locations where they may be painting. The Information Tent will be open on Friday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm, Saturday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, and Sunday from 9:00 am to noon.

The wet paintings will then be displayed during a free exhibit in the historic Camden Amphitheatre, Sunday, July 31, 1:00 to 3:00 pm.

The weekend will culminate with a ticketed Reception and Live Auction in the Amphitheatre, Sunday, July 31, from 4:00 to 6:00 pm, when the weekend’s new works will be auctioned. Light hors d’oeuvres served by Stone Cove Catering. Auctioneer Kaja Veilleux of Thomaston Place Auction Galleries will kick-off the bidding at 5:00 pm. Tickets for the Reception and Live Auction can be purchased online for $75 each (CLICK HERE) or by calling 207-236-3440. Proceeds from the auction will be shared equally between the Library’s Campaign for the Future and the artists.
