Blue Hill Public Library
The Blue Hill Peninsula will be rendered in paint, pencil, and pastel by over 80 local artists on the morning of Saturday July 16th during Paint the Peninsula, the Blue Hill Public Library’s fresh paint fundraiser. Later that evening more than 100 original works of art will be sold to benefit the library at a reception and silent auction from 4:30-7:00 PM.
The resulting exhibition is a celebration of both the area and the artists who live here. It is rare to have so many artists—from young, emerging talent to some of the region’s most celebrated painters—gather under one roof to show and sell their work. Opening bids range from $50-$350 making Paint the Peninsula a great opportunity to start buying local art or to add to an established collection. Most artists donate 50% of the sale to the library and some do more, so winning bids support both the Blue Hill Library’s operating budget and the local arts community.
