Reception Thursday, August 6, from 4 - 7 pm in collaboration with The Mount Desert Chamber of Commerce - 5% of sales from Don's show will be donated to the Portland Museum of Art because we support their mission of  promoting and supporting Maine artists in its various collections and works with individuals, institutions, and organizations from across Maine’s communities.

Donald Demers' interest in painting maritime subjects began while spending his summers on the coast of Maine near Boothbay Harbor.   Don was a crew member aboard many traditional sailing vessels including schooners and square-riggers and continues to be an avid sailor to this day.  His professional career began as an illustrator and expanded into the field of fine art.  His diversity has enabled him to apply his skills to clients ranging from American Airlines to the National Park Service.  Various projects have included creating art for national television advertisements, educational television programming and designing art glass for Steuben
