Visual artist and dancer rooted in the seasonal rhythms of her mid-coast Maine home, Heléna Melone's work depicts the inspiration and movement of her environment.  Both clothing and wall hangings are designed to react fluidly with air currents and gesture, reflecting the ephemeral and "inter-responsive" nature of life.  Heléna will be at Freedom Makers' Studio unpacking all of her treasures -- wall hangings, ornaments, and her full line of wearables.  At 3:30 there will be a fashion show with dancers as models.  Performances by Molly Gawler, Rachel Finnemore and Kim Many, as well as Heléna will enliven her wearable silks art -- as well as the event!
