    Please join us for this wonderful summer event! We are excited to help organize the thirteenth annual Northeast Harbor Neighborhood House Invitational Arts and Crafts Show.

    The curators, Jodie Aragona and Linda Perrin, select a house full of distinguished artisans in a variety of mediums to participate in this "not to be missed" cultural event on Mount Desert Island, Maine. In the beauty of the historic Neighborhood House, an elegant atmosphere is created where one can find artisan made housewares, wearable art, sculpture or gifts for friends back home.

    This show has a relaxed and elegant atmosphere, with no admission charge for the public. We kick off the annual gathering with a Thursday evening wine and cheese opening.
