The next Kingfield Friday Artwalk is set for 5-7:30 p.m. Friday, June 24, in Kingfield Village.

The Kingfield POPS returns the next day, June 25, after a two-year hiatus. Gates open at Kennedy Farm on Salem Street at 4:30 p.m.

High Peaks Artisans Guild welcomes two new artists this month. RJ “Bob” Gray Jr. makes leather bracelets, handbags, valet trays, and woodblock relief prints. Cynthia-Lyn Knowles draws nature, wildlife and animals with pen and ink, and paints on rocks.

Knowles also does embroidery on the tote bags she created, according to a news release from artwalk organizers.

Other Guild artists include:

• Alana Ranney, photography, jewelry and knitting: Ranney uses interesting personal photo techniques in the printing of her mysterious looking images.


• Betsy Bass, photography: Bass offers gondola photos, as well as Sugarloaf and Boothbay area and wildlife photos.

• Catherine Hudson, pottery: Hudson has small bowls to plant succulents in.

• Deborah Dubord of Good Deed brought in new tote bags and aprons. Her tote bags are made with repurposed material.

• Greg Thomas photography and paper collage: Thomas has been continuing his “Thunder the Cat” collection using color paper cut outs.

• Patty Thomas of Alpine Design continues painting on skis, and is doing commission pieces for other ski mountains and the Rockies.

• Lisa Leavitt of Freedom Felt does sculpting work with wool.

• Karen and Raymond Corson, frames, cribbage boards: The frames are custom and colorful. Some of their cribbage boards and frames have etched lightening which is made by running electricity through the wood grain.

• Nora West, oils and other mediums: West uses pallet knife work to capture the Sugarloaf and Maine coast areas with her unique style.

• John Brown of Twisted Creations has pieces of unique furniture, swings and lamps as well an organic looking range hood to large dining tables. He also creates commission pieces.

• Susan Taylor, oils: Taylor’s landscapes capture a Monet and Jackson Pollack feeling with a layered paint style which makes the painting in 3D.

• Patricia Buck has Sugarloaf pottery and sweaters on display, and continues to bring in new books to read.
