  • Touchstone Retreat: Our Daily Bread

    July 22, 2021 - July 25, 2021 @ 
    Searsport Shores Ocean Campground

    Taught By: Michael Hanson, Eli Rugosa, and Nick Grecco

    Learning what it takes to make healthful and delicious breads the way our ancestors did; celebrating the ancient harvest; and discovering the secrets of beers and grain based spirits.

    Over the course of three days we'll repeat our ancestors' journey from flatbreads to risen sourdoughs, exploring in depth the grains, techniques and intuitions that the modern, industrial world is in danger of forgetting. We'll explore the diversity and many benefits of ancient grains; how to work with water and fire, different flours and wild yeasts. We'll glimpse a global heritage that ranges from the simple breads we dip and fill to loaves that crown a table; from 'daily' breads to the sacred and ceremonial. We'll celebrate and understand the vital connection between harvest and culture.

    Multiple towns and locations, visit website for more

    The Penobscot Maritime Heritage Association is celebrating Maine's 200th birthday with a big splash! Tall ships and schooners along with a U.S. Coast Guard Patrol Craft and the University of Maine's 3-D printed boat (the largest 3-D printed object in the world) will visit the Penobscot River from July 13-18, 2021 as part of the month-long 4-Port Loop celebration. We will be honoring Maine's rich maritime past in the historic four ports of Bangor, Bucksport, Orrington and Searsport that anchor the geographic area known as the "4-Port Loop."

    The ships plying the waters of the mighty Penobscot include the historic Tall Ships Nao Santa Maria and Maine Maritime Academy's Bowdoin; plus a 175' U.S. Coast Guard cutter Abbie Burgess; the largest 3-D printed object in the world, the working patrol boat, 3Dirigo, from the University of Maine's University of Maine's Advanced Structures and Composites Center; and the American Cruise Line's 288' Constitution. They will make various appearances or sail by's at Bangor's waterfront activities, Orrington's Old Home Week, Bucksport's special events and the finale to Searport's 175th anniversary celebrations.

    The mission of the Penobscot Maritime Heritage Association is to provide a historical perspective of the Penobscot River Basin and create tourism and economic opportunities in the Penobscot River Basin with the goals of making the 4-Port Loop a vacation destination in Maine and maintaining it as a sustainable annual event. We hope you will join in the fun.

  • (Online) Teaching From the Heart: Nonviolent Communication in the Classroom

    August 2, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
    This dynamic online program will be offered synchronously via Zoom you'll need access to a stable internet connection. Participation is encouraged. This is NOT a pre-recorded program.

    Using a curriculum based on Nonviolent Communication principles, this program will provide you with tangible ways to manage your classroom and reach your full potential as an educator. Our doubts as caregivers and teachers are inevitable. If we have a system to refer to when these doubts creep in, we can relax. Instructor Gina Simm has taught in early childhood education for over 30 years. Her background in Montessori education and children's theater launched her into the world of public schools where she spent most of her career as a first-grade teacher (including a year spent teaching English in China). Simm worked closely with Miki Kashtan, a co-founder of Bay Area Nonviolent Communication. Simm's knowledge of Nonviolent Communication has transformed her classroom into a place where systems of the heart create a child-centered environment for moving through conflict. CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS Participants will receive a certificate of completion and 0.6 CEU/6 contact hours are available.

  • Art Matters Exhibit @ Hutchinson Center

    August 4, 2021 @ 8:00 am - September 30, 2021 @ 4:30 pm
    University of Maine - Hutchinson Center

    'Art Matters' exhibit by the Mid-Coast Salon on display at the UMaine Hutchinson Center

    Belfast, Maine The Mid-Coast Salon exhibit "Art Matters" opens Aug. 4 at the H. Allen and Sally Fernald Art Gallery at the University of Maine Hutchinson Center in Belfast. The show, on display through September, is free and open to the public from 8 a.m. 4:30 p.m. Monday Friday.

    A free public reception for the show will be held from 5:30 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 11.

    Mid-Coast Salon is a monthly discussion group of two dozen accomplished artists brought together by their love for and commitment to art. In this exhibit, 16 artists will present 54 diverse works of drawing, painting, photography, pottery and flex-forms. Participants include nationally known Belfast painter Harold Garde, now in his 99th year. Garde's painting, "Tell a Story" is one of the few he's done "where it felt appropriate to incorporate words."

    A significant component of the show is a collection of statements by the artists on why art matters.

    "Artists are often at the forefront of progress, showing us something we otherwise wouldn't experience," says David Estey, painter and founder of Mid-Coast Salon.

    Kerstin Engman, who teaches art at the University of Maine, says that most human-made things exist because of a skilled, trained artist or artisan. With his mixed-media pieces, Greg Mason Burns makes the point that artists matter in bringing us their personal backgrounds and attachments.

    Several artists interpret society, like Lesia Sochor's "repair" series, Leslie Woods' Black history paintings and Liv Kristin Robinson's landscape photographs, where stillness is a metaphor for the pandemic. Carol Sloane's figure drawings tremble uncertainly around fragile spaces. Jack Silverio, Bob Richardson, Frederick Kuhn and Michael Corden mesmerize us with paradox through seeming simplicity. Kenny Cole offers three new political works and former Camden-Rockport teacher Russell Kahn adds sgraffito pottery. The paintings of UMaine professor Ed Nadeau and New York's Andrea Assael encourage us to contemplate and interpret their open narratives.

    This show, which was first exhibited in July at the UMVA Gallery at Portland Media Center, will be on display in midcoast Maine at the H. Allen and Sally Fernald Gallery at the UMaine Hutchinson Center, 80 Belmont Ave., in Belfast from Aug. 4 through Sept. 30.

    'Art Matters' exhibit by the Mid-Coast Salon on display at the UMaine Hutchinson Center

    Belfast, Maine The Mid-Coast Salon exhibit "Art Matters" opens Aug. 4 at the H. Allen and Sally Fernald Art Gallery at the University of Maine Hutchinson Center in Belfast. The show, on display through September, is free and open to the public from 8 a.m. 4:30 p.m. Monday Friday.

    A free public reception for the show will be held from 5:30 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 11.

    Mid-Coast Salon is a monthly discussion group of two dozen accomplished artists brought together by their love for and commitment to art. In this exhibit, 16 artists will present 54 diverse works of drawing, painting, photography, pottery and flex-forms. Participants include nationally known Belfast painter Harold Garde, now in his 99th year. Garde's painting, "Tell a Story" is one of the few he's done "where it felt appropriate to incorporate words."

    A significant component of the show is a collection of statements by the artists on why art matters.

    "Artists are often at the forefront of progress, showing us something we otherwise wouldn't experience," says David Estey, painter and founder of Mid-Coast Salon.

    Kerstin Engman, who teaches art at the University of Maine, says that most human-made things exist because of a skilled, trained artist or artisan. With his mixed-media pieces, Greg Mason Burns makes the point that artists matter in bringing us their personal backgrounds and attachments.

    Several artists interpret society, like Lesia Sochor's "repair" series, Leslie Woods' Black history paintings and Liv Kristin Robinson's landscape photographs, where stillness is a metaphor for the pandemic. Carol Sloane's figure drawings tremble uncertainly around fragile spaces. Jack Silverio, Bob Richardson, Frederick Kuhn and Michael Corden mesmerize us with paradox through seeming simplicity. Kenny Cole offers three new political works and former Camden-Rockport teacher Russell Kahn adds sgraffito pottery. The paintings of UMaine professor Ed Nadeau and New York's Andrea Assael encourage us to contemplate and interpret their open narratives.

    This show, which was first exhibited in July at the UMVA Gallery at Portland Media Center, will be on display in midcoast Maine at the H. Allen and Sally Fernald Gallery at the UMaine Hutchinson Center, 80 Belmont Ave., in Belfast from Aug. 4 through Sept. 30.

    Belfast, Maine The Mid-Coast Salon exhibit "Art Matters" opens Aug. 4 at the H. Allen and Sally Fernald Art Gallery at the University of Maine Hutchinson Center in Belfast. The show, on display through September, is free and open to the public from 8 a.m. 4:30 p.m. Monday Friday.

    A free public reception for the show will be held from 5:30 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 11.

    Mid-Coast Salon is a monthly discussion group of two dozen accomplished artists brought together by their love for and commitment to art. In this exhibit, 16 artists will present 54 diverse works of drawing, painting, photography, pottery and flex-forms. Participants include nationally known Belfast painter Harold Garde, now in his 99th year. Garde's painting, "Tell a Story" is one of the few he's done "where it felt appropriate to incorporate words."

    A significant component of the show is a collection of statements by the artists on why art matters.

    "Artists are often at the forefront of progress, showing us something we otherwise wouldn't experience," says David Estey, painter and founder of Mid-Coast Salon.

    Kerstin Engman, who teaches art at the University of Maine, says that most human-made things exist because of a skilled, trained artist or artisan. With his mixed-media pieces, Greg Mason Burns makes the point that artists matter in bringing us their personal backgrounds and attachments.

    Several artists interpret society, like Lesia Sochor's "repair" series, Leslie Woods' Black history paintings and Liv Kristin Robinson's landscape photographs, where stillness is a metaphor for the pandemic. Carol Sloane's figure drawings tremble uncertainly around fragile spaces. Jack Silverio, Bob Richardson, Frederick Kuhn and Michael Corden mesmerize us with paradox through seeming simplicity. Kenny Cole offers three new political works and former Camden-Rockport teacher Russell Kahn adds sgraffito pottery. The paintings of UMaine professor Ed Nadeau and New York's Andrea Assael encourage us to contemplate and interpret their open narratives.

    This show, which was first exhibited in July at the UMVA Gallery at Portland Media Center, will be on display in midcoast Maine at the H. Allen and Sally Fernald Gallery at the UMaine Hutchinson Center, 80 Belmont Ave., in Belfast from Aug. 4 through Sept. 30.

  • Muzzy Ridge Concerts: Duo Coquelicot

    August 15, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

    Duo Coquelicot, flutist Carol Wincenc & cellist Vell da Miragias, in the inaugural concert of composer Robert Sirota's Muzzy Ridge Concerts

    About this event

    Composer Robert Sirota hosts the first performance of his new series, Muzzy Ridge Concerts, in his studio in Searsmont, Maine. Grammy-nominated flutist Carol Wincenc ("Queen of the flute," New York Magazine), and Boston-based Parisian cellist Vell da Miragias, will give a concert featuring a wide-ranging program that includes the music of J.S. Bach, Haydn, Faur , Debussy, Saint-Sa ns, and Villa-Lobos, plus a new work by Meira Warschauer. The duo will also perform Robert Sirota's Broken Places.

    Robert writes of the new series:

    Since 1986, we have owned a home on a 10 acre property in the town of Searsmont in central coastal Maine: a landscape of small farms, low-bush blueberry fields, and woodlots inhabited by deer, wild turkeys, numerous species of birds, and the occasional moose, black bear, and coyote. Our home sits on a gently sloping parcel on the eastern side of Muzzy Ridge. It is in this setting that I have composed many works in the past 35 years.

    About ten years ago, we built an 800-square-foot studio onto our house: the perfect intimate venue for chamber music. You are invited to join us for two special events inaugurating Muzzy Ridge Concerts. We hope that these two Sunday afternoons in August will be the start of annual celebrations of chamber music in this place we love.

    Concerts are approximately 60 minutes, without intermission. Indoor seating is limited to 40 vaccinated patrons, with some additional outdoor seating. Concerts take place at Robert Sirota's studio in Searsmont, Maine. The address and directions will be supplied to ticket buyers.

  • Muzzy Ridge Concerts: Laurie Carney and David Friend

    August 22, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

    Violinist Laurie Carney and pianist David Friend perform in the inaugural season of composer Robert Sirota's Muzzy Ridge Concerts

    About this event

    Composer Robert Sirota hosts the second performance of his new series, Muzzy Ridge Concerts, in his studio in Searsmont, Maine. Violinist Laurie Carney and pianist David Friend perform Messiaen's Th me et variations, Prokoviev's Five Melodies, Op. 35, Kod ly's Adagio, and Sirota's Summermusic from 2000. A founding member of the American String Quartet, Laurie Carney holds the distinction of performing quartets longer than any other woman in this elite field. A fearless performer, critics have described David Friend's performances as "astonishingly compelling" (The Washington Post).

    Robert writes of the new series:

    Since 1986, we have owned a home on a 10 acre property in the town of Searsmont in central coastal Maine: a landscape of small farms, low-bush blueberry fields, and woodlots inhabited by deer, wild turkeys, numerous species of birds, and the occasional moose, black bear, and coyote. Our home sits on a gently sloping parcel on the eastern side of Muzzy Ridge. It is in this setting that I have composed many works in the past 35 years.

    About ten years ago, we built an 800-square-foot studio onto our house: the perfect intimate venue for chamber music. You are invited to join us for two special events inaugurating Muzzy Ridge Concerts. We hope that these two Sunday afternoons in August will be the start of annual celebrations of chamber music in this place we love.

    Concerts are approximately 60 minutes, without intermission. Indoor seating is limited to 40 vaccinated patrons, with some additional outdoor seating. Concerts take place at Robert Sirota's studio in Searsmont, Maine. The address and directions will be supplied to ticket buyers.
