    Ives, a Damariscotta resident creates oil paintings inspired by the outdoor adventures – both locally and statewide – that she shares with her husband. Summer Work features a large selection of her 4 x 4 inch “207 Paintings" appropriately named for the state's area code.

    Swimmers, sailors, paddlers, hikers, bikers, climbers, and other outdoor adventurers are captured in jewel-like moments that shine with the artist's gratitude for “the good life” lived in Maine.. A selection of larger paintings will also be on view. Ives celebrated a successful solo show at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art earlier this year and exhibits regularly with Gleason Fine Art in Boothbay Harbor.

    Born and raised in Blue Hill, Maine and now living in Camden, Rizzio received her MFA from SUNY Purchase and quickly returned home to intentionally 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. Summer Work will include various size assemblage pieces and a series of unique postcard collages.

    Last summer Rizzio sold out her solo show at Turtle Gallery in Blue Hill. She continues to exhibit at Turtle and at The Maine Farmland Trust Gallery in Belfast. She will be presenting her work and her mail art subscription service at the Pecha Kucha Midcoast Maine event in Camden on August 15th.

    Ives and Rizzio have collaborated on pop-up events and exhibitions in the past and are thrilled to team up with The Good Supply owner Catherine Walton on this unique community exhibition to bid summer adieu. 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 first 2D art celebration. "The Good Supply's foundation is in the art world, and given our mission to build community this collaboration is a dream come true," says Walton. Ives and Rizzio couldn’t be more excited to participate in The Good Supply’s unique space, spirit of hospitality, and mission to support the work of local artists.

  • First Art Exhibit at The Good Supply - A Retrospective of Huston Dodge Miniatures

    The Good Supply Community Events Midcoast Maine Huston Dodge Post and Beam Miniatures

    Pemaquid, ME (May 7, 2014) An exhibition of handmade wooden miniatures built by Huston Dodge over a period of 50 years will be on display through the end of June at The Good Supply in Pemaquid. The public is invited to join the artist and show curator Kenneth Kortemeier at a reception to be held from 5:30 pm - 7:30pm on Friday, May23rd at The Good Supply’s post and beam storefront.

    Dodge, a 96 year old Damariscotta native, began creating these miniature models while in high school in the 1930s. They represent historical buildings, many of them local to the Bristol Peninsula. In fascination of 17th and 18th century architecture and building techniques, many of Dodge’s creations are a record of structures that were neglected, abandoned, or torn down during his lifetime.

    Woodworker and teacher Kenneth Kortemeier has curated the exhibition to honor Dodge’s remarkable craftsmanship and the local history his work has preserved. This exhibit, which includes  10 miniatures, makes it possible to observe many historically accurate building details including floor plans, interior trim, post and beam construction, and period hardware.

    The Good Supply owner Catherine Walton is thrilled to host this noteworthy exhibit and opening reception – one of many ways the company highlights the work of local artisans.  At work with Kortemeier to document the exhibit, she says, “Mr. Dodge’s work is intricate, complete with built-in corner cupboards in an old Rte. 130 farmhouse and working parts in an old Round Pond mill.  It is something both grandparents and grandchildren will delight in seeing.”
