‘Let’s Turn Up the Heat’ to benefit CRC Fuel Fund

Event has passed

If you have not had the chance to pop into Kerr/Jones Fine Art and Craft … and Uncommon Goods at 268 Ocean Point Road this summer, now is your chance! Diana and Kathleen are hosting “Let’s Turn Up the Heat,” a reception to benefit The Community Resource Council (CRC) and the Fuel Fund on Thursday, Oct. 6 from 4 - 6 p.m. Parking available at the School Street public lot behind EBB Fire Department on Murray Hill Road.

Diana and Kathleen had a wonderful inaugural season at the gallery and they want to give back to their beloved community! A generous portion of all gallery sales from the event will benefit The Fuel Fund and both artists will be raffling off originals of their own work with 100% of those proceeds going to help heating assistance here on the peninsula. Diana creates original decoupage glassware designs and is offering a glass decoupage tray. Jeweler Kathleen is raffling off a pair of hand etched bracelets.

All proceeds from the raffle tickets will go to The Fuel Fund and tickets for these items can be purchased all week prior to the event at the gallery, 1 ticket for $10 and 5 tickets for $40. Refreshments will be enjoyed and members of CRC will be present to answer any questions about their programming. Come join in on the fun and let’s turn up the heat! Please RSVP by Monday, Oct. 3 to kathleenjonesdesign@gmail.com

We are all anticipating a harsh winter with heating costs weighing heavy on many minds. The Fuel Fund is a heating assistance program of the CRC that assists residents of the Boothbay Peninsula (Boothbay, Boothbay Harbor, Edgecomb, Southport) by providing financial assistance and referrals for home heating needs. If you cannot attend the reception but would like to make a donation to CRC/Fuel Fund, please send checks to CRC/Fuel Fund PO Box 43 Boothbay Harbor, ME 04538.

Diana Kerr and Kathleen Jones, artists and friends who have lived in the Boothbay Region for more than 30 years, had long shared a vision of opening a gallery. Their professional backgrounds as gallery and museum curators motivated them to create a space that features both local and internationally known artists —with an emphasis on exceptional Maine art. Their "uncommon goods" are unexpected, unusual artisan crafted treasures discovered in their international travels, including an exquisite collection of Moroccan rugs and unique home decor. The gallery is open from May through mid-October with Gallery hours: Wed.-Sat. 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
