In celebration of the Acadia National Park Centennial, the Maine Crafts Guild is coordinating an event titled Conservation Matters.

Guild members will be challenged to design and produce works featuring natural/conservation themes, in celebration of 100 years of Acadia stewardship. Artwork may range from production to one-of-a-kind pieces and will be showcased on our website.

Conservation Matters will culminate at the 41st Annual Mount Desert Island Directions Fine Craft Show at the Atlantic Oceanside Event Center—Bar Harbor, where participating members will highlight their Acadia Centennial–themed artworks for purchase.

A percentage of sales will be donated to Friends of Acadia. A special celebratory gathering is planned for the evening of July 29, 2016—opening night of the show.

Admission $5; under 18 free.
