• JUDY BLOOMS: Fresh Maine Art

    Judy Blooms Art Show at The Good Supply in Pemaquid Maine

    Art Show & Garden Party at Historic Pemaquid Barn

    Pemaquid, ME  – It is party time once again at The Good Supply! On July 28th from 5:30-7:30pm, we will open our annual art show through August 31st and host a festive garden party. All are welcome and the event is free to attend. Judy Blooms: Fresh Maine Art at The Good Supply marks the sixth annual art show and opening celebration at the store. The 2018 exhibit will continue a core theme of inspiration from Maine nature.

    “The show, powered by four talented, hard-working female artists from Maine, represents a snapshot of our place in time," says exhibit curator Catherine McLetchie. "Supporting these women in our community helps shape the tapestry of our culture. Will we embrace this fresh take on what it means to ‘see’ nature?"

    The use of unconventional materials is a noteworthy element of this event.

    Judy Blooms Art Show at The Good Supply in Pemaquid Maine with Florabeane

    Amity Beane of florabeane creates breathtaking reproductions of flowers that she grows on her fifty-acre farm in Dixfield. These beautifully delicate artworks are paper sculpture.

    Amity is a teacher, a farmer, and an artist to name just a few roles. When not working with young students in her small western Maine school district, she can be found at home in the foothills cultivating flowers, making paper flower orders, and chasing her baby. Amity has degrees in fine art and education with a focus on teaching with technology. Her work has been on display at Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay and Calderwood Hall on North Haven Island. Sharing knowledge of craft with others is at the core of Florabeane’s work. In addition to teaching workshops in person and online, Amity also shares her work through her own photography and written guides.

    Inspired by minimalism and material, Camden maker Karina K. Steele’s artwork includes carved spoons and bentwood mobiles.

    A Colorado native, Karina had spent most of her life on the mountain slopes of the Rockies. In 2012 she switched gears and began her journey in the craft of woodworking. She studied design and furniture making at the Center for Furniture Craftmanship in Rockport Maine.  Now living and working in Camden, where the mountains meet the sea, Karina makes one-of-a-kind spoons, kitchen tools, fine mobiles and modern housewares.

    Liz Martone of Round Pond interprets the seasons and colors of Midcoast Maine in richly textured, exuberant weavings. Liz’s selection of work will also include large-scale mosaic glass pieces inspired by gem stones.

    EFM Studio was founded in Brooklyn in 2012 before relocating to a home base in Round Pond, Maine. The creative force behind the bespoke design studio is illustrator and maker Liz Martone. Unafraid to mix urban edge with rural sensibilities, Liz has a love for all things handmade. This explains her diverse exploration of mediums, which ranges from glass to wood to fiber. A BFA in Illustration formalized Liz's passion for the arts and continues to inform her work. She creates unique designs, translating drawings and showcasing a love for patterns. Her work is exhibited in galleries in New York and Midcoast Maine, and much of her time is spent creating custom installations for private and commercial clients.

    To round out the natural theme, Trelawney O'Brien of Rockport will present wearable art including embroidered shirts depicting human and celestial themes.

    In 2016, treyummy was formed to explore traditional craft, process, and art through thoughtful, one-of-a-kind objects and fashion. All wares are imagined, designed and created in small batches by artist Trelawney O'Brien in her studio in Rockport, Maine. Her current work focuses on traditional embroidery, activism through art, natural dyeing, symbolism, and up-cycled fashion.

    Artists will be in attendance to discuss their works and answer questions, and art will be for sale along with The Good Supply’s regular stock of homewares and gifts.

    The Judy Blooms: Fresh Maine Art at The Good Supply art show opens on July 28th and runs through August 31st. We hope to see you here!

  • Spring Fling Gathering

    The Good Supply Spring Fling Garden Party

    Garden Party & SALE to Celebrate 'The Annex' is June 16th

    The season is finally here, and we have a special event planned to help you stock up on host gifts and refresh your decor for all Summer parties. The Spring Fling Gathering will be held on June 16th from 9:00am to 6:00pm at The Good Supply barn and 'The Annex' on Pemaquid Point.  

    Highlights of the event will include an early bird opening hour (9:00am instead of our regular 10:00am), the season debut of The Annex, rare discounts on made in Maine home goods and gifts, a yard sale of store props, and the fun garden party atmosphere for which we are known.

    The Good Supply Spring Fling and Sale to Debut The Annex

    The Annex: This new venture in our roadside out building is sure to delight.

    Friends Katherine Garren and Leigh Tilden have collaborated for 6 years to hone their skills cleverly repurposing and reimagining one of a kind antiques. Their goal? To create useful and unique furniture for the casual home. Leigh Tilden says, “Both of us are seeing the world differently since we started this - saw horses turn into tables, boxes become shelves, feeding troughs become planters. The strangest pieces have become mirrors.”

    Pictured above, The Good Supply proprietor Catherine McLetchie sits in 'The Annex.' She says, "I am so excited to formally debut The Annex! It's a great project being realized by two very fun and talented women. Their version of "upcyle" is funky and innovative. I can't wait to raise a glass to our collaboration and toast to the great season ahead!" 

    The gathering will be open to the public beginning on June 16 at 9:00am.
