“THE BEAUTY OF BRISTOL” -Judy Nixon at PWA

 Nixon Fall Reflections

Damariscotta, ME  − December 29, 2013 −  Judy Nixon of Bristol will exhibit her artwork at the Pemaquid Watershed Association (PWA) office gallery in downtown Damariscotta from January 6 through March 7.  The theme of her exhibit is “The Beauty of Bristol”.  The public is invited to a wine-and-cheese opening reception for Nixon on Friday, January 10, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. at PWA. 

 

Transitioning from a long stint of living in Massachusetts and a career in accounting, Nixon and her husband retired to Bristol in 1999.  They chose Bristol because of its great beauty and small town atmosphere.  She is inspired by the seashore, the rocky coastlines that abut inland farms, lake areas and river ways, and quiet forests, all forever changing with the seasons.  Her primary medium is watercolor, but she also enjoys painting in acrylics, oils and gouache, creating monotypes, and using Asian brush.  Nixon is a former member of Round Top Center for the Arts and a current member of the Pemaquid Group of Artists at Pemaquid Point Lighthouse Park, Boothbay Region Art Foundation, the Kennebec Valley Art Association, the Maine Art Gallery in Wiscasset, and River Arts in Damariscotta. 

The exhibit may be viewed weekdays from 9:30 to 4:30 p.m. by visiting PWA above Salt Bay Café.  For more information, call 207-563-2196 or visit www.pemaquidwatershed.org.  Nixon is donating 35% of proceeds from sales to support PWA’s mission of conserving the natural resources of the Pemaquid Peninsula.

Jean Kigel:  “Ode to Bowdoin Pines”  at Gallery Framing

12 Pleasant  St., Brunswick, from September 2 – 27.

 

Since classical Greek times, poets have written odes addressing subjects like joy, Grecian urns, the west wind, and immortality.

For this exhibit, Kigel has painted a series of odes to the Bowdoin Pines. This 3 acre parcel of pines, with walking trails, is a rare example of one of Maine’s old-growth forests, it’s specimen more than 125 years old.

Using thick tempera paint, watercolor, and Asian brush, Kigel exalts the statuesque white pines, given in 1791 from the town of Brunswick to Bowdoin College.   Layering  brilliant and unexpected colors, Kigel’s paintings evoke the glory of coastal pine barrens, the pride of patriarchal ships’ masts, and the solace that pines lend to nature preserves and winter.

 Witness the wonder of pines Monday – Friday 10-5, and Saturday 10-2.  And meet the artist during the Brunswick Art Walk, Friday, September 13th.  For more information, call 729-9108 or visit www.jeankigel.com .

Birds, Bugs and Butterflies” opens at CRAFT Gallery with Susan Atwater



Beauty in the natural world of birds and insects is the theme of the”Birds, Bugs and Butterflies” show at CRAFT Gallery, which opens on First Friday, July 5th. Five Maine artists, working in their chosen medium, are inspired by their love for this subject.
The source of Kathleen Florance’s energy comes from her fascination for the natural world, using its elements as a visual and emotional springboard. She uses rice paper, ink, paint and pastel to create abstractions of butterflies and bees in all their complexities of physical structure. She clearly loves to paint and draw. Florance has exhibited at the Caldbeck Gallery as well as others throughout New England, China, Bulgaria and Russia. She has collaborated with Dudley Zopp, another CRAFT Gallery artist, in the environmental art Project “Circadia” and has been awarded Good Idea grants twice by the Maine Arts Commission.Inspired by science fiction and science fact, Portland sculptor Mike Libby (Insect Lab Studios) combines preserved insect parts with antique watch parts and components of vintage sewing machines and typewriters to create a variety of members of the insect world. Noticing how insects look and operate like a mechanical watch, it made sense to him to combine the two to celebrate both nature and machine. His small sculptures, no more than  4″ to 8″, are exquisitely and painseakingly made. Libby is a graduate of RISD  and has exhibited at the Chidren’s Museum in Portland, the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show and throughout the U.S. and Europe.Jeweler Peggy Johnson works in silver, beads and gems to accurately recreate the delicate characteristics of bugs. Her work reflects her respect for the insect world as does Susan Atwater,who uses her skill of silk painting to create scarves, pillows and small envelopes she calls “keepers”, embellishing them with insect and floral motifs. Her process starts with fine line drawing using gutta resist on pure white silk, mixing her own fiber dyes to create a rich palette of color.Choosing the unusual medium of epoxy, bird sculptor James Pyne uses exaggeration and humor to sculpt birds, real or imagined. Impossibly elongated bills, tails and wings express their grace and personalities. Night herons, bee-eaters and avocets are among those presented in singles, pairs or groupings.”Birds, Bugs and Butterflies” contnues until Augest 10th. CRAFT Gallery is located in the courtyard at 12 Elm Street in Rockland. For more information call 207 594 0167 and visit www.craftonelm.comCRAFT is located at 12 Elm St., Rockland.

LANDING GALLERY

On Friday, July 5th, Landing Gallery at 8 Elm St, Rockland will have an artists opening reception for two new exhibits, “MAINE LANDSCAPE PAINTERS” in the first floor gallery and “PERSONAL PERSPECTIVES” in the Mezzanine Gallery.  Both exhibits will be open through July 28th with the artists reception from 5-8PM during the Arts in Rockland, First Friday Art Walk, July 5th.

 

The “MAINE LANDSCAPE PAINTERS” show exhibits 55 new paintings by Lewis Cisle, Sarah Faragher, Elizabeth Kelley, Brian Krebs, Monique Lazard, Janet LeDoux, Bjorn Runquist, Rebecca Rivers & Suzanne Siegel.  The focus is landscape and seascape subjects by artists who live and paint in Maine.  Coastal & shoreline subjects merge with fields and mountains in various mediums ranging from oil, acrylic, watercolor, charcoal and etching.  There is a strong architectural presence in the work featuring quintessential Maine cottages, capes, barns and shacks which contrast beautifully with the organic forms of nature.  The work of each artist demonstrates development of a strong personal vision, making this exhibit amazingly varied in technique and interpretation.

 

The “PERSONAL PERSPECTIVES” exhibit in the Mezzanine Gallery shows new sculptures by Nancy Linkin & Isabelle Pelissier along with new paintings by Diana Godfrey & Ken Sahr.  Those familiar with Nancy Linkin’s hammered bronze sculptures will notice that her new work has more complex curvilinear shapes.  Much like a musical score, her sculpture has a crescendo of form, culminating in a central tour de force of movement, balanced with delicate, tapering, linear elements.  Isabelle Pelissier’s welded steel sculptures are abstract references to nature and growth patterns in plants.  Her use of color becomes a counter point to seemingly familiar natural forms of the sculpture.  Diana Godfrey’s abstract acrylic paintings have the essence of Maine landscape redefined.  Sometimes capturing the feel of granite and ledge, at other times, the place where ocean and rock merge.  Her paintings are open to interpretation and invite one to find their own place within the texture of paint and collage.  Ken Sahr’s large oil paintings of Hawaiian Shirts are fresh from the University of Maine Art Museum, where they were among the juried 34 artists work selected for the prestigious “I-95 Triennial 2013”.  His larger than life depiction of ordinary objects, shirts and cupcakes, transcends the subject into an exceptional aesthetic moment. 

 

We hope that you will be able to attend the artists opening receptions and meet the artists.  We will look forward to seeing you in the galleries.  Gallery hours: Tue – Sun 11-5, closed Mon.  FMI Please call the gallery at 207 594-4544

Pam Cabanas and Petrea Noyes – Opening May 3rd at Peak’s Island Gallery

 

Ralph Hassenpflug  has a solo show at the Gelato Fiasco on Fore St. in Portland, ME  – April 5th  until Sunday, April 14th.

Sally Smith at the Damariscotta River Grill

‘Spring Food and Flowers’ at the Damariscotta River Grill will show from March 20 to April 30, 2013.  This flower was a very late bloomer.  A number of these flowers survived the first frosts, and I finally picked them and brought them indoors. They were rough, tough and show it, but they had bloomed when nothing else had. So I painted them rough and tough, with palette knife and thick paint, and thought about van Gogh and some of his work. -Sally Giddings Smith-

Jeanne Wells at Panopticon Gallery, Commonwealth Ave. Boston

Panopticon Gallery’s upcoming exhibition The Things That Seem and Those That Are: Reshaping Photography through Alternative Processes will be on display from February 28 through April 1st.

Photographers selected for this exhibition are:
Lindsey Beal
Jesseca Ferguson
Christopher James
DM Witman
Jenn Libby
Ron Cowie
Julia Cart
Jeanne Wells
Nikki Segarra
Douglas Ethridge
S. Gayle Stevens
Elizabeth Ellenwood
Arista Slater-Sandoval

The things that seem and those that are is in part Machiavellian. It’s a quote paraphrased, but it also goes on to describe the alternative and historical photographic processes through which each of these artist’s works. The key term is processes – the works are not instantaneous, rather time consuming processes that are anti-digital in nature.

We will have a variety of alternative processes on display, from cyanotypes to tintypes, ambrotypes to platinum palladium prints, and images created with pinhole cameras – each unique image baring the marks of their makers.

The opening reception for this exhibition will be held on Thursday, February 28th from 5:30-7:30pm.

 

 

COMMON ROOTS

Gallery Framing in Brunswick, Maine will open their spring season on March 2 with a reception featuring the work of sister artists Barbara Bean and Jackie Melissas.

Jackie is an established artist on the faculty of the North Shore Country Day School in Winnetka, Illinois. At the end of this academic year, she will be moving to Brunswick where she plans to establish a ceramics studio. For Jackie, this exhibit, titled Common Roots celebrates the joining of family, mutual passions for creative work, and the eventual return to roots.

 

Barbara is a member of the Points of View Gallery at the Brunswick Business Center and also of the Old Post Office Gallery in Georgetown.  She exhibits regularly at both galleries and is also seen as a juried member of the Cambridge Art Association in Massachusetts.  She works in mixed media, printmaking, assemblage, and artist books.  Her dedication to drawing is her contribution to this exhibit featuring her most recent works.

 

The artists share their visions and preoccupation with different media as well as common interests in nature, the garden and ground from which their art is created.  It is a show of sharp attention to detail and structure.

 

Gallery Framing is located at 12 Pleasant Street in Brunswick.

The Opening Reception will be from 10-2 on Saturday, March 2.

Brooke Pacy at The Bakery

A new exhibition of oil paintings by Brooke Pacy will open this week at The Bakery in Damariscotta and run through October. Ms. Pacy studied classical drawing and painting with Elizabeth Byrd Mitchell in Baltimore, painted off and on throughout a teaching career, and, since moving to Waldoboro ten years ago, has concentrated on catching the beauty of local ephemera—moments here and gone—in land or seascapes, rooms, gardens, or an arrangement of objects. She currently paints with a group led by Katharina Keoughan, all of whom pursue individual styles nourished by the creative  support of the others.

The Bakery, offering delicious sweet and savory treats, is located at 85 Parking Lot Lane, off Business Rte. 1 in the heart of Damarsicotta.

Kim Hetherington at Tidemark Gallery

Witty and delectable little gems of paintings by Bremen artist, Kim Hetherington, sparkle in a new show, “People, Places and Things: 2012,” portraits, landscapes and still lifes in oil and pastel at Tidemark Gallery starting Wednesday, September 12.

A fine eye for beauty, loads of upbeat energy, high standards and a thoughtful, curious nature belie the fact that Kim began painting fairly recently. Her landscape design business in Washington, D.C., led her to study art about ten years ago at the Art League, where she learned the basics of oil painting from the portrait painter, Rob Liberace. Since then, she’s continued her art education with David Leffel, Lisa Semerad, and Stanley Bielen and – in Maine — Tina Ingraham, Colin Page, and Kay Sullivan.

Tidemark Gallery will host an opening reception on Saturday, September 15, from 5 to 7pm at 902 Main Street, Waldoboro. For more information, visit www.tidemarkgallery.com or phone 832-5109.

Collaborative Connections:

Two Print Groups Join Together for Art Show

             Eighteen artists from Circling the Square Press and One of a Kind Printers will be exhibiting work together.  Collaborative Connections opens on July 13 at Circling the Square Fine Art Press in Gardiner, Maine.  A public reception will be held on July 13 from 5 to 7 pm.

The show’s title, Collaborative Connections, refers to the process in which the prints were created.  Each artist made a print and exchanged theirs with a partner who then made another print in response.  Artwork will be displayed in pairs so that viewers can see both prints side by side.  The pairs of prints reveal each artist’s sensitivity and individuality while reflecting aspects of the other.  The artists in this show hail from Portland to Orono and towns in between.  The gallery will be open on Wednesday and Thursday from 2 to 6 pm and on Friday and Saturday from 10 to 4 through August 4th.  In November the show will travel to Curtis Memorial Library in Brunswick, Maine.

It’s Not So Black and White Features Seven Artists

(Peaks Island, ME) “It’s Not So Black and White” a multi-media exhibit at Richard Boyd Art Gallery opens Friday, June 1st at 10:00 am. For most artists, shading is more than just relative lightness and darkness, it’s about the nuances of tone and the creation of form and texture. The exhibit explores works by artists using values of black and white to create variations in tone from deep hues of black to silvery grays. Works by Pam Cabanas, Judy Kane, Judy O’Donnell, Elisabeth Heller, Jay LaBrie, Richard (Rick) Boyd and Keith Weiskamp are on view daily from 10:00 am through 5:00 pm through June 30th.

Pam Cabanas, an established artist, educator and entrepreneur for over forty years, creates work in her Friendship, Maine studio. Pam’s ink wash paintings depicting coastal Maine scenes express a reverence for the Maine coast and all who live there.

Judy O’Donnell, an artist and educator for over thirty years, creates paintings and sculpture in her Falmouth studio. O’Donnell’s mixed media paintings aspire to show harmony between life forms in nature and man.

Elisabeth Heller, an emerging artist with a degree in illustration works primarily in ink and watercolor. Heller’s work is both alluring and thought provoking.

Jay LaBrie creates acrylic paintings of landscapes and landmarks in Maine. LaBrie’s use of tone and subtle hues capture the fine details of each study.

Richard (Rick) Boyd, a retired nurse anesthetist has created pots for over thirty five years. Rick works in all clay bodies and produces hand made functional pottery and ceramic art.

Keith Weiskamp is a retired software engineer and publishing entrepreneur who decided to pursue a career as a glass artist. Weiskamp creates traditional and contemporary glass pieces using a combination of Venetian glassblowing and Japanese metal foil techniques.
