    The Craignair Art Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition entitled “Third Watch” by Spruce Head Artist Katharine Cartwright  through August 22.

    This series of India ink drawings depicts the standing and running rigging on tall ships that she sailed in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.

    “My focus is on the beautiful and elegant designs made by ropes and lines on these historic vessels where traditional seamanship is practiced even today,” said Cartwright, in a news release. “Some of the detailed drawings contain more than 40,000 pen strokes. Cartwright’s paintings have been featured in international exhibitions winning top awards and in hundreds of private and corporate collections. Her works have also been featured in notable publications such as  Pratiques des Arts, Art Scope Magazine, Visual Language Magazine, Best of Worldwide Watermedia,, and A Walk Into Abstracts. The Maine Arts Commission recently exhibited her work in the State House in Augusta, Maine. Notably, Cartwright served as the artist consultant and designer of the exterior mural model at the Mid-coast School of Technology in Rockland.”

    The Craignair Art Gallery is located at the Craignair Inn at the end of Clark Island Road in Spruce Head. Gallery hours are daily from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m, and informally throughout the day. For more information, visit
