    A Journey Into the 8 Limbs of Yoga

    Pemaquid, ME —The Good Supply is offering a series of yoga classes that will explore the “8 Limbs of Yoga” beginning the week of September 21 and ending the week of November 2.

    Certified instructor Adam Weatherford will lead classes that incorporate discussion into sequences of traditional yoga poses. Initiating and ending classes with conversation is meant to build a feeling of togetherness, which students can take with them when they leave the studio. The “8 Limbs of Yoga” consist of the don’ts of life, the do’s of self, breath work, physical poses, meditation, steadiness of mind, and enlightenment.

    Each class will be driven organically by participants’ own perspectives and experiences and paired with a physical practice. The style that will be used is a ladder vinyasa that will build up to a peak pose and flow into meditation.

    Weekly Yoga Schedule at The Good Supply

    Pricing will be affordable and cost $6.00 per one-hour session or $20.00 for a weekly pass. The schedule for classes will be Wednesday 6:45pm—7:45pm, Thursday 9:00am—10:00am and 5:30pm—6:30pm, Friday 5:30am—6:30am, and Sunday 3:00pm—4:00pm. Students should bring a water bottle, yoga mat, and towel. If necessary, the venue has a limited supply to lend.

    The Good Supply, a small business known for promoting the work of local artisans, is open through October 16. Weatherford’s weekly classes will extend through November 6. The classes are designed to strengthen participants as individuals and as a community. All levels of experience and ability are encouraged to attend.

    Eco-Art & Ocean Consciousness

    Pemaquid, ME —An exhibition of handmade whale sculptures made from repurposed lobster rope and marine debris and built by nautical artist Cindy Pease Roe will be on display through August 21 at The Good Supply in Pemaquid. The public is invited to join the artist at a reception to be held from 5:30pm—7:30pm on Saturday, July 23 at The Good Supply’s post and beam storefront.

    The Good Supply is thrilled to celebrate the achievements of a talented artist. Roe’s whimsical art depicts whales because of their size. To her, they symbolize a big need for clean-up. Spreading the word about ocean consciousness is the motive that drives her advocacy tour, which has included workshops for students as far away as China.

    As an extra treat, ocean lovers will delight in a video installation showcasing NOAA research from the Mariana Trench—the world’s deepest part of the ocean located in the western Pacific Ocean. Karl McLetchie, co-proprietor of The Good Supply, also works as an ocean engineer for the Global Foundation for Ocean Exploration. This video installation represents his latest work.

    There will also be information tables from the Rozalia Project for a Clean Ocean, a nonprofit organization based in Kittery that helped Roe source her materials; the University of Maine’s Darling Marine Center; Boothbay’s Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences; and Ocean’s Wide, an organization that gives high school-aged students insight into the world of ocean exploration.

    The Good Supply, a small business known for promoting the work of local artisans, is open for the summer season. Roe’s whales will be on view and for sale from July 23 through August 21. The exhibit is designed to intrigue and delight. Ocean fanatics, their families, marine science buffs, and children will be particularly interested in the show.

    The title of the show: Arts and Recreation is a play on words meant to reflect the subject matter of Ives’s colorful oil paintings and the recycling process shared by Rizzio and Haynes to create their respective mixed media collages and acrylic on reclaimed material paintings.

    Ives, a Damariscotta resident creates oil paintings inspired by outdoor adventures local and statewide. Arts & Recreation features a selection of her 4 x 4 inch “207 Paintings" appropriately named for the state's area code. Swimmers, paddlers, hikers, and other outdoor adventurers are captured in jewel-like moments. A selection of larger paintings will also be on view. Ives exhibits regularly with Gleason Fine Art in Boothbay Harbor and offers color theory classes through the Farsnworth Art Museum. In conjunction with this exhibit, Ives will host two color theory classes at The Good Supply on August 6 and August 9.

    Born and raised in Blue Hill and now living in Camden, Rizzio received her MFA from SUNY Purchase and returned home to pursue a life of art. Her current work uses a wide range of mediums—vintage ephemera, found objects, repurposed frames—that embrace the passage of time and the beauty of physical objects in a screen obsessed era. Arts & Recreation will include various size assemblage pieces and a series of unique postcard collages. Rizzio exhibits at Turtle Gallery in Blue Hill and at The Maine Farmland Trust Gallery in Belfast.

    Haynes studied fine art at St. Lawrence University in Canton, New York in part because of the university’s access to the Adirondacks. Currently based in Belfast, his love of nature continues to fuel his endeavors both personal and professional. Painting in acrylic on reclaimed wood and metal, his style is dynamic and modernist. His work is concerned with re-creating structure on material that is fractured and cobbled together. He gives care to honor signs of reclaimed materials’ origins—identifying wear not as blemishes but as stories worth expressing.

The Good Supply, an up-and-coming rustic boutique, housed in a recently restored 150-year old barn in Pemaquid, is known for its utilitarian work from Maine artisans. This pop-up event marks the store's second 2D art celebration.

  • The Good Supply Hosts Art Exhibition - Ed Strausberg Dioramas: US Marine Corps in the Pacific

    The Good Supply Community Events Pemaquid Maine Ed Strausberg War Dioramas

    Pemaquid, ME (May 7, 2015) An exhibition of handmade dioramas built by Vietnam veteran Ed Strausberg will be on display through the end of June at The Good Supply in Pemaquid. The public is invited to join the artist at a reception to be held from 5:30 pm - 7:30pm on Friday, May 22nd at The Good Supply’s post and beam storefront.

    Strausberg, a Bristol Mills resident, meticulously depicts battle scenes from the Korean War and WWII. Using images found in history books for inspiration, Strausberg creates his dioramas to further educate the public about the perils of war. 

    His work has been shown at the West Point Museum and the Naval War College among other reputed institutions. He desires for his models to travel to schools and libraries to inspire the public (and children specifically) to study history. In fact, Strausberg began building models at the age of eight after seeing Revolutionary War dioramas during a class trip. 

    Being able to see a moment in history - a place and time with real people - in three dimensions allowed him to relate war and military service in a new way. Recognizing the true danger soldiers face, Strausberg says, “We should always think twice before sending our troops into harms way, and make sure that’s the only option. I generally build these dioramas to remind us of what it takes to make war - the people who serve and the people who actually fight the war.”
