We will meet at 9am  the west entry to the State Office Building, in the parking lot, facing Sewall  Street, to consolidate painting gear and then carpool up the old Ganneston Park carriage road (there is room for a few cars at the entrance), then hike in to paint or sketch scenic spots along the old carriage road including views of Kennedy Brook. Artists can take a short walk (3 mins) to the stream overlook or go further (12 mins) to clamber down to the stream valley. Session will end with a show and tell session at noon. Bring art supplies for your medium, easel, stool or chair, water, snack or lunch, sun hat, sunscreen and insect repellent. Ticks possible though we will be in shaded woods.

Registration in advance is required for all hikes on the Howard Hill property.  Until KLT’s acquisition of Howard Hill is completed in the fall of 2015, the property remains in private hands and is not open for public use.  The current landowner has granted KLT permission to host a limited number of guided visits to help build the support necessary to successfully complete this important conservation initiative. 

To register call the Harlow Gallery at 207-622-3813, or email kvaa@harlowgallery.org. The modest fee benefits the Howard Hill Project.

The Howard Hill benefit art exhibition will be on view  October 12 – November 1, 2014 at Slates Restaurant at 167 Water Street in Hallowell, Maine. Deadline to submit work for the show via email is September 1, 2014 at 11pm. For complete details on submitting art for the exhibition, visit http://harlowgallery.org/howard-hill/
