Several Artists will be on site to show their crafts and local authors will present their books for signing. Lisa Oettinger will demonstrate her jewelry making techniques (1:00 pm), Jeff Longar will entertain with his wood carving/boat hull-making demo (11:00 am), John Wotton will work throughout the day (when there is sun!) to show how he burns wood designs by using a magnifying glass and the heat of the sun. Two authors will be on hand all day to discuss and autograph their latest books: Roger Greene, author of "In the Company of Trees" about the Northern Maine Woods and Jane Harvey Meade, author of "Narrownook", a murder-mystery novel based in Bucksport. Impromptu Watercolor and Acrylic painting-on-furniture demonstrations will take place throughout the day. The Lighthouse Gallery also displays the work of 60 local Maine artists in a variety of mediums. The lower level of the Lighthouse Gallery will also house the Fiber Arts Show described in a separate listing.
