Abbie Williams returning to Summer Island Studio

Abbie_Williams_August_2014

 

Abbie Williams from Damariscotta Mills will be returning the month of August to Summer Island Studio – Gallery of Fine Artisans. Please join us for an Artist’s Reception and Brunswick’s 2nd Friday Artwalk on August 8th from 5pm to 8pm. Wine, Cheese and Horsdoerves will be served. Live Music by Stan Davis a folk, blues artist.

William’s paintings are all glimpses into her perception of life along the coast of Maine, the Island of Monhegan and Taos New Mexico. Using rich color and employing the dramatic light of the coast and the high desert, she works to capture the extraordinary way the light changes moment to moment which infuses her response to the colors that are often too subtle for the casual observer

Having spent most her life painting and living along the coast of Maine, then spending 10 years painting the high desert of New Mexico, she has continually been 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, shape, textures and light that make up what she paints and now through in her work.

Lydia Kaeyer Featured at Summer Island Studio this Month

| July 7, 2014 | 0 Comments

july 2014- reszed

 

Lydia Kaeyer’s watercolor paintings are her artistic interpretation of the Maine coast representing realistic scenes of seascapes, lighthouses, and local marine facilities.

Her works are all of local scenes of the Mid-Coast, many painted “plein air” depicting the Rockland, Spruce Head, Owls Head, North Haven, Port Clyde and Monhegan waterfront environs.

“She loves the docks, working boatyards, local architecture, and coastal scenes using color and light to bring out the beauty of the surroundings.”

Formerly a teacher in Westchester County, New York, Kaeyer studied art and art history at Wheaton College, MA, SUNY Purchase, NY, and has been greatly influenced by her watercolor teacher, David Dewey.

Inspiration also comes from the work of Edward Hopper and Paul Rickert. “She grew up in Marblehead, MA with a father who was an illustrator for the Boston Sunday Post and a mother who was an architect so she thinks it was a natural progression to take up painting when she moved to Maine. It became her passion.

Kaeyer is a resident of Owls Head, Maine and Florida.

Her work is currently being shown at Art Space Gallery, and the Lighthouse Museum both in Rockland.

Reception: July 11th, 5-8pm
 
Spindleworks is often known for an exuberance of color expressed through paintings, weavings, pottery and other creations.

In this month’s exhibit, Monochrome, Spindleworks shares a selection of these striking and rich monochromatic pieces. As well as drawings, Monochrome includes new works from our pottery and sculpture studio as well as experiments from the newly established photography program.

Claudette Gamache at Summer Island Studio in June

| June 10, 2014 | 0 Comments

Lilly Pads and Marsh 16x20 rszd

Claudette Gamache a Pastelist from Phippsburg will be showing the month of June at Summer Island Studio – Gallery of Fine Artisans 149 Maine Street in the Tontine Mall, Brunswick, Maine.

Artist Reception and Brunswick’s 2nd Friday Artwalk is on June 13th from 5pm to 8pm. Live Music, Wine, Cheese, and Horsdoerves will be served. For information please call Patti Baker at 373-1810.

Claudette’s creative journey has now taken to a layering technique using pastels where she includes up to 20 layers in her paintings. The practice of layering color over color, taking out with a brush, reflection, connecting with, and repeating this process many times can last for days, weeks or months. She begins a communication at a certain point in the creative process; a vibration or aliveness has transferred into the pasting, she calls this process her meditation.

Gamache lives at Popham Beach where she is drawn to the essence of nature and nurtured by the changing scenes and the power and calm of the ocean. She finds that layering is her meditation for soul expression, and her healing journey. This encourages a relaxation response within. Her wish is that the viewer can experience the same.

Points of View Artists celebrate 10 years of collaboration

Points of View Artists formed 10 years ago after taking Kathleen Boldt’s popular Merrymeeting Adult Education drawing courses, “Drawing: Learning to See” and “Drawing with Color”. This common experience provided the inspiration and excellent foundation that launched each of the artists on an exploration of the “artist within”. Since then, the artists have explored other art media, such as pen and ink, clay, watercolor, soft pastel, collage and printmaking. Each artist will be showing work that reflects the growth he or she has achieved during their 10 years together. As a special treat and an expression of gratitude from the group, Kathleen Boldt will join the members of Points of View Artists to show some of her work.

Pat Hix and Harriet Lindemann present Garden Path. Pat Hix is well-known for her delicate images of trees and flowers – often cut paper images laid over a watercolor background. Harriet Lindemann creates work that ranges from the realistic to the abstract with a fascinating mix of techniques. Both are founding members of Points of View Artists.

But she finds that she cannot do that, and so present in this show; bright cliffs of Monhegan Island in Oil and Cathedral Woods on Monhegan in pearlescent pastels.

There is a painting of backlit cows and two portraits of dogs being dogs – the iconic Maine Black Lab playfully bearing a stick to its owner, an inquisitive dachshund name Scout.

Susan’s work has been seen in many exhibitions, is in corporate collection. She is an author of 6 art and photography books, published in New York City,her home town.

Currently, Susan lives and paints in her studio in Harpswell.

all_species_parade 4st

What: All Species Parade!

When:  May 9, 2014, 4:30pm
Where: Town Mall, Brunswick

 

Come one, come all to the Annual All Species Parade! Once again, to celebrate spring and the diversity of natural species on our planet, Spindleworks and Arts Are Elementary are hosting a community wide parade. Everyone is welcome to join in, dressed as or carrying a representation of their favorite species.

Creative visual interpretations of species are welcome and it is requested that live animals, motorized vehicles(aside from motorized wheel chairs), and slogans or words are left at home. Those interested in participating should gather on the town green at 4:00 for a prompt 4:30 start.

The parade will head down Maine Street towards the river, take a right on Bank Street, another right on Federal Street, and a final right on School Street back to the town green. The parade will end just as the first ArtWalk of the season begins.

The theme of Species will continue with the exhibit On the Edge at Frontier Café (14 Maine Street), hosted by Spindleworks.

The exhibit will draw attention to our living planet both to celebrate, and to raise awareness of the diversity of species, all of which are affected by our actions and inactions. The reception will run from 5-8pm.
