The 4th Annual “Hearts for the Arts” show and auction is online now through Feb 18th. View the catalog, with links to bid at

This year’s stunning show features over 120 pieces by over 50 artists including works by several members of Eastport Gallery, a constituent of the Eastport Arts Center.

Eastport Gallery members Alison and Dave Ross created “Tin Man’s Valentine”, their first artistic collaboration, for this show. Alison works with hand-twisted steel wire and reclaimed wood, and Dave’s construction background provided the old metal, wood, and architectural finds, as well as the necessary skills to cut, rivet, bend and fold metal, to produce this unique, interesting and heart-felt piece.

Come to the always popular Open Mic at the Arts Center on February 9, 6-8 pm, to view a small display of auction pieces, some available for instant purchase at the event.
