Friday Dec. 5th, 2014, 5-7pm
Please join us for an evening of chocolate tasting, browsing music, and conviviality on Friday, December 5th from 5-7pm. This will be our last event. There will be samples of Dean’s Sweets delicious hand-dipped chocolates and the all natural, flavor-packed Bixby Bars produced right here in midcoast Maine. Tom Luther’s unique hybrid blend of original music, as well as his take on some traditional seasonal pieces, will spice up the nooks and crannies and stimulate the mind, all the better to fully immerse oneself in the 2014 Extravaganza of small artworks and crafts lovingly assembled for a localvore’s gift giving pleasure!
Tom Luther will be using a digital keyboard and laptop computer with several different kinds of software in combination with his own jazz rooted improvisation to produce reflective musical soundscapes, touching on both the familiar and unfamiliar, describing this work as being “somewhere between Herbie Hancock and Brian Eno”. Dean’s Sweets, winner of a 2011 Best of Portland Award will tantalize your taste buds at the tasting table with a sample or two of chocolates with flavors including; Brandy, Maple, Cayenne, and Salted Caramel truffles. Dean’s chocolate bar flavors will include; Brandied Orange Peel, Mocha Latte, and Maine Potato Chip. The Bixby & Co’s white, milk and dark chocolate bars each feature uniquely satisfying combinations of exotic spices, pure chocolate, healthy nuts and dried fruits. This is bound to be a truly delicious evening!
The jam-packed Extravaganza show features smaller artworks and a wide range of creative crafts priced with gift giving in mind. Over 70 talented Maine artists from throughout the mid-coast and beyond are represented in a dazzling variety of mediums, including: pottery, poetry and painting, collage, etching and photography, woodblock prints, felted and knitted fiber works, assemblage, cards, calendars, ornaments, Glass Plate images of Maine, affordable jewelry, music and more!
