2014 2nd Friday ArtWalk Brunswick

“Something Different Every Month”

This year’s 2nd Friday ArtWalk in Brunswick is more exciting than ever and will be offering something different every month.

The Art Venues are along Maine Street from the Bowdoin College Musem of Art and Fort Andross and along Pleasant Street from Maine to Union Streets. The vast assortment of art includes paintings, pottery, mixed media, jewelry, sculpture, woodwork, textiles and more.

There are over 20 venues, with more than 100 artists found in artists’ studios, galleries, group shows, & museums.

There is also a NEW ‘Adopt an Artist’ Program with Maine Street businesses hosting a different artist each month throughout the ArtWalk season. This is another opportunity for the public to meet the artists, ask questions, learn about art, share ideas about art. Sparking discussion, encouraging folks to want to try painting or drawing, or pottery, or jewelry making… that’s a wonderful thing!

This year, there will be more than 20 different musical groups playing throughout the season, in the downtown area, both indoors at various venues, as well as outside next to the sidewalk.

Also NEW this year, we are including other performing art groups in this year’s monthly celebrations, including:

  • The All Species Parade kicking off the season in May
  • The MSMT (Maine State Music Theater) with strolling singers in June
  • The Theatre Project Group entertaining us in June and August
  • The Hidden Ladder Collective busking on the sidewalk some months
  • The Woodside One Wheelers busking on the sidewalks other months
  • The ArtWalk Youth Ambassadors helping with maps and directions to ensure an opportunity to see the most of everything each month.

And just to ensure that downtown visitors will have an opportunity to see as much as possible, the Brunswick Explorer bus will be circling the town, giving rides along the route on both Maine Street and Pleasant Street. It had always been said that you couldn’t see the whole ArtWalk in one evening, but maybe this year you can!

Each ArtWalk will be a happening this year with a different emphasis each month to keep it fresh and different. Come join in the fun!

Linda Murray featured Artist for October

| October 6, 2013 | 0 Comments

A_Walk_In_The_Park- sis

Linda Murray of Bath will be showing the month of October at Summer Island Studio-Gallery of Fine Artisans located in the Tontine Malla in the heart of downtown Brunswick.

 Artist Reception and Open house will coincide with Brunswick’s 2nd Friday ArtWalk on October 11th from 5pm to 8pm. Wine, cheese, horsdoerves will be served. LIVE MUSIC this month will be Steve Quigley of Harpswell. Any questions please call Patti at 373-1810.

Stop by and meet Linda Murray. Have her tell you a bit about the process of her work.

 

Murray’s is influenced by the Abstract Expressionists who work in a improvisational style.  Their emphasis is on the process with an organic approach of letting an image evolve without the weight of a preconceived notion of outcome to weigh it down.  She finds it exciting to witness a new visual idea emerging from the surface.  Often the idea seems to transcend language and be of a spiritual nature.

Linda begins each image whether abstract or a tree root with a wet-in-wet process where paint is applied to the wet surface allowing pigment to push and pull and merge into new hues.  After pigment is applied she often introduces resists or apply a technique called Decalcomania where she lays down various plastic material and manipulates it to form wrinkles and shapes.  (Decalcomania is a technique first used by the surreal painters in the 1920s and 30s.) Once the wet-in-wet application is dried the plastic material is removed revealing rich textures and forms.  Editing out, adding line, deepening values or lifting pigment then develops the image.  Murray often adds gouache to watercolor or pours fluid acrylics to enhance contrasting textures and values

The tree images in this exhibit are all taken from life.  While the surrounding landscape may be fictitious, the tree exists somewhere that she has been.  The abstract images however are from my imagination.  While they may remind me of a place perhaps underwater or celestial they evolved out of contemplation and listening to the painting adding or taking away until there is nothing left that seems to need adjustment.

Where: Gallery Framing, 12 Pleasant Street, Brunswick
When: October 1-31, 2013
Opening Reception: 5-8pm, October 11th
 
Brunswick—As fall arrives, and we all begin to come inside, it seems an appropriate time to consider where we come inside to; the structure, the place. Spindleworks’ October exhibit at Gallery Framing is a collection of work taking a look at dwellings, real and imagined. Angela Alderete’s painting of a neighbor’s house taps into that curiosity in us all about how other’s live. Barbara Carter’s Technicolor portrait of a neighborhood stands in stark contrast to Mitch Pfeifle’s photographic study of an abandoned summer kitchen. From warm and cheery to mysterious and haunting, this diverse exhibit includes drawings and paintings, sculpture, photo and fiber work. Join us for the opening during the second Friday ArtWalk in Brunswick October 11th, 5-8pm.

Monday – Friday 10-5, and Saturday 10-2
“Ode to Bowdoin Pines Series:  Caverns of Silence”
Meet the artist on Friday Night Art Walk, September 13 from 5-8PM
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 of Brunswick, Maine. 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 source of pride for Maine’s shipbuilding, and the solace of pines in winter’s silence.
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 preview the show at www.jeankigel.com .

Novelist Ricahrd de Villers Seymour reading at Gulf of Maine Bookstore Tonight

| September 13, 2013 | 0 Comments

As a part of the Brunswick Art Walk on Friday, September 13, Gulf of Maine Books  (134 Maine Street, Brunswick) will host a 7 PM author event with Brunswick novelist Richard de Villers Seymour, who will read from his new historical novel “Beyond – Popham Colony: The first English settlement in New England.

As little is actually known about this earliest of colonial settlement, and much is speculated, Richard Seymour has created a novel from historical fact, woven with adventure and romance, exploring the story from both the English and the First Peoples experiences.

Please come out for the art walk, and join us for this special event. The event is free, and open to the public. For more information please call Gulf of Maine Books – 729-5083.

Fashion Show featurig Spindleworks’ Talents!

Fashion Show
Where: The Theater Project, 14 School Street, Brunswick

When: September 25th, 11:00 am show and 6:30pm show
Cost: suggested donation $12
advance tickets: 729-8584

Atelier

Where: Whatnot Gallery, Spindleworks

7 Lincoln Street, Brunswick

September 13th-October 25th, 2013

Opening Reception: 5-8pm, September 13th

 

Fashion design has been a fixture of creative expression at Spindleworks almost as long the program has been in existence.   Well known in the Maine fiber arts scene for its weaving and textiles, Spindleworks has produced unique clothing and other wearable items from a variety of materials since the late 1970s.   

In the past, collections were featured at lively fashion shows hosted by the Theater Project in Brunswick.  Staff from Independence Association, Spindleworks’ parent agency, modeled clothing made by the artists.  Local poets, including Gulf of Maine Books owner Gary Lawless, read poems inspired by the work.

These events happened several times during the 1980s and ‘90s, but have not occurred in recent years.  Spindleworks arts recently brought up the idea to revive the tradition again.  Following their lead, staff at the program began organizing the opportunity to host a show this fall.

Fashion Show, an event featuring Spindleworks-made clothing and accessories, will debut on Wednesday, September 25th.  The public is invited to two shows, at 11:00 am and 6:30 pm at the Theater Project in Brunswick.   Tickets are a suggested donation of $12 and may be purchased ahead of time by calling the Theater Project at 729-8584.

 

“We received a lot of enthusiasm for bringing back this event,” says Sara Cox, an artist mentor at Spindleworks. “Our friends in the Brunswick community have stepped up to be models or to help out in other ways. The Theater Project has been really supportive and agreed to be the venue again for the show.”


Fashion Show will feature local models donning the Spindleworks creations, including Gary Lawless, Jill Jacobs of ‘The Mix’, and artist and original founder of Spindleworks, Nan Ross.  For a look behind the scenes, the public is also invited to Atelier, a visual art exhibit opening at Spindleworks during the Brunswick Second Friday ArtWalk on September 13th from 5 pm to 8 pm.  The show will feature sketches, garments, textiles, and other fashion-related creations made by the Spindleworks artists.  The gallery will be turned over to display the creative process that takes place behind a fashion show.

Peter Jeziorski -

Over the years, my style evolved from a wild, loose, spontaneous, splashy, drippy style I learned under Irving Shapiro to a tighter more structured use of the watercolor medium. Most of my paintings and subjects are scenes of the common man hard at work. Whether it is the loneliness of a farmer working his hay fields or a Maine lobsterman hauling in his traps, or the Vermonter making maple syrup. Capturing the vignettes of small towns has been my goal. They are all a disappearing way of American life, as are the people.

I find a certain peace and contentment with the subjects that I paint. They are the observations accumulated over a lifetime and not casual glances

More paintings can be seen on Peter’s website at www.peterjeziorski.com

At Points of View Art Gallery in September

| September 4, 2013 | 0 Comments

Points of View Art Gallery, 18 Pleasant Street, Brunswick

Artists reception:  Friday, September 13 – 5 to 8 pm

Gallery Hours:  Monday-Friday, 9 am to 5 pm

In the Main Gallery five Points of View Artists will present Portland to Portland, an exhibit of lively and evocative watercolors by Tim Banks.  Most of the paintings in this show were inspired by a drive across the country from the Atlantic to the Pacific and back taken by Tim and his wife.  The virtually unlimited subject matter offered by our glorious country and the people that inhabit it demands the variety presented in this show. The artist’s chosen medium, watercolor, and his unique viewpoint of spectacular scenery and interesting people tells a story and presents an exhibit you will not want to miss.

 

Beth Heron and Alan Mast pair up again in Painting a la Carte, the September show in the third floor Garret Gallery.  Each artist brings work from their current interest:  collage for Beth and paintings of local town and coast landscapes for Alan.

Bowdoin College Museum of Art- Special Program Friday Night for Katherine Bradford Exhibition

| August 5, 2013 | 0 Comments

August 9 ArtWalk program at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art

A reception with music by a jazz duo, for artist Katherine Bradford celebrating the exhibition Katherine Bradford: ~~~AUGUST~~~ will take place from 6-7 p.m. on Friday, August 9, 2013, at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art. Immediately following the reception, Katherine Bradford will present a 7 p.m. gallery talk in the exhibition as part of Brunswick’s Second Friday ArtWalk. Bradford is a New York-based painter and a long-time member of the Maine arts community. The Museum will be open until 8:00 p.m. on Friday, and the events are open to the public free of charge.

 

Katherine Bradford Exhibition includes eight of Bradford’s recent paintings, which are all concerned with the ocean, populated by boats and bathers, as a metaphor for the vagaries of modern life.  Bradford’s ocean paintings can simultaneously be read as hilarious and catastrophic, decorative and sublime. Like many maritime-inspired artists before her, Bradford enjoys capturing waves with vigorous brushstrokes, but she does not aim at rendering nature realistically. Instead, she subversively imitates abstract art, reinterpreting it in her own figurative idiom. The exhibition will continue through September 1, 2013.

Katherine Bradford lives and works in New York City and in Brunswick, Maine. Among her many distinctions are awards, fellowships, and grants from the Joan Mitchell Foundation, the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, and the Guggenheim Foundation. Bradford’s work appears in several distinguished museum collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Addison Gallery of American Art. Bradford has recently exhibited work at the Addison Gallery of American Art, the Portland Museum of Art, and the American Academy of Arts And Letters, New York.

Fully accessible, the Bowdoin College Museum of Art is open to the public free ofcharge from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, and with special hours from noon-5 p.m. on Sunday, from June 30 through October 13.

Abbie Williams @ Summer Island Studio in August

| August 4, 2013 | 0 Comments

5 AM at the Lighthouse

Abbie Williams is pleased to announce the showing of her paintings for the month of August at Summer Island Studio – Gallery of Fine Artisans at the Tontine Mall in Brunswick, 149 Maine Street. Artist Reception and Artwalk as well as, LIVE MUSIC – Steve Quigley from Harpswell will be August 9th from 5pm to 8pm, wine, cheese, horsdoerves will be served, any questions call 373-1810.

All the pieces on display are glimpses into an artist’s perception of life along the coast of Maine and the Island of Monhegan. Using rich color and employing the dramatic light of the coast, Ms. Williams captures the extraordinary way the light changes moment to moment as she infuses her response to the colors that are often too subtle for the casual observer.

Having spent most of her life painting and living along the coast of Maine , Ms. Williams is continually inspired by the challenges the local environment presents. Traditionally trained as a painter, Williams has spent a lifetime observing and taking in the nuances of color, shapes, textures, and light that make up what she paints and now comes through in her work.

The show will continue through the end of August and Williams invites everyone to come and step into her visual world to see how an artist sees Maine.
