Handcrafted on Deer Isle: Work by Five Furniture Makers, will be on view from July 26 to September 6, 2015 at the school’s Center for Community Programs. The exhibition highlights five of the island’s skilled and creative makers in wood—Bruce Bulger, Eben Foss, Julie Morringello, Bill Turner, and Geoff Warner. All long-time Deer Isle residents, several of the artists were born and raised here, and others settled in Deer Isle to join a creative community of boat-builders, blacksmiths, carpenters, and other working artists.
