The judge for this show was Hara Harding

 

   Harding attended Connecticut College for Women, BA; Maine College of Art; and has studied privately with DeWitt Hardy, Steven Burt and other fine artists. She has exhibited at Mast Cove Galleries, Kennebunkport; the Brick Store Museum, Kennebunk; River Tree Arts, Kennebunk;  45o Gallery, Kennebunkport;  New Era Gallery, Vinalhaven;  Camden Falls Gallery, Camden; and Barn Gallery/Ogunquit Art Association, Ogunquit.  

    Harding is currently the manager at Barn Gallery in Ogunquit, and was the Art School Coordinator at River Tree Center for the Arts in Kennebunk, and at W. Cushing Gallery in Kennebunk. 

    “To be happy I must be creative. Making art is my way to connect with the rest of humanity/nature and in that process I find myself.  I happily pursue many media and my favorite instrument is whatever is in my hand or at hand.  Drawing in ink from live models is still a passion. I am also apt to have a print and/or painting in the works at the same time, which helps satisfy my love of color, composition and creating order out of chaos. Process is important.”
    ~ Hara Harding
