Blue Hill, ME- For as long as I can remember, I have been venturing to Blue Hill, Maine every summer to spend a week by the ocean with my family.

CORNERED: Sculptor, Peter Beerits

A quirky jelly farm in the heart of Deer Isle, Maine is also home to a variety of sculptures created from found objects from the local area that include a giant flamingo, a Western town and Knights from the Round Table. Nervous Nellie’s Jams and Jellies’ founders Peter and Anne Beerits began the business 25 years ago and now produce about 300 to 350 jars of jelly and jam a day. Through the years, Peter has created an interactive museum of sculptures that are scattered throughout his land and the woods adjacent to the jelly store.


Built on the nearly four decade legacy of the former Groton Center for the Arts, 3Rivers Arts, a Ayer-Mass. based non-profit regional arts organization, has the stated mission of “engaging the humanities for artful living in central Massachusetts by connecting artists with audiences in a variety of creative forms and expressions” through quality arts education and events.

Preview: Severin Haines: Recent Landscapes at Dedee Shattuck Gallery
