Two Eastport Gallery member-artists were recently featured in Island Institute’s publication The Working Waterfront.

Alison Bryn Ross was featured for her work on the Eastport Buoy. Her capabilities as a muralist enabled the Eastport Chamber to bring their “selfie-magnet” idea to life. Currently serving as President of Eastport Gallery, Ross is also known for her whimsical wire taxidermy featuring local flora and fauna in delightful poses. Her sense of humor that twinkles throughout her multi-dimensional artwork surfaces boldly in her greeting card series depicting beautifully drawn local outhouses. More about the artsy buoy here.

In the same issue, member-artist Diana Young was lauded, among other things, for her prolific coverage of the Bangor scene. So much so, that the writer posited that “she should be declared painter laureate.”

Lucky for Eastport fans, Diana’s love of painting tidal life extends to Moose Island and its surrounds. Since the 1980s Diana has claimed Eastport as a second home and many of us have enjoyed her animated presentations of life around town throughout the years. Her works, whether in pencil or paint, are full of color and energy and you can’t help but smile when you view them. More about Diana here.

Coming Soon! In early November we will launch our Holiday Virtual Show with lots of local art sized perfectly for shipping and stocking stuffing.
