Transportation, lunch, and afternoon refreshments included.
Save the date for CMCA’s annual, much-anticipated, always sold-out, daylong tour of exceptional homes and collections in the Midcoast.
The daylong tour begins on the top of Dodge Mountain at the home and studios of artists Lauren Henkin and Richard Benari, publishers of Vela Noche fine art editions. Designed by Henkin, who trained as an architect, the contemporary home overlooks Meadow Mountain Preserve and houses both artists’ studios.
The next stop is the Camden home of collectors Carey Cameron and Giovanni Ferrero and studio of painter Anneli Skaar, who shares the oceanfront property. Cameron and Ferrero’s collection includes contemporary outsider art and Cuban art from Ferrero’s time as the Italian ambassador to Cuba.
Next up is the stunning private Rockport enclave of Tina and Joe Pyne, a multi-dwelling hillside compound with ocean views and art-filled gardens and homes. Lunch will be served in the party house and on the terrace of the Frank Lloyd Wright inspired house, followed by tours of the art and property.
The day concludes with a visit to the Rockland home of Donna McNeil, a beautifully restored historic church that McNeil has decorated minimally but exquisitely with art and objects collected through her years as a curator and arts administrator. An edible performance by artist Izabel Nielsen awaits you.
