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 .

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 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.
Where: Whatnot Gallery
Spindleworks, 7 Lincoln Street, Brunswick
Reception: August 9th, 5-8pm
Good things come in small packages. After the success of the “tiny” exhibit last year, Spindleworks offers a new collection of small works from the studios on Lincoln Street. Once again, the show will include work from the community which has been juried by the artists of Spindleworks. The jurying process is an important part of the artists’ professional development; while they are exposed throughout the year to the work of other artists, this experience challenges them to really reflect on what they are looking at and to give their opinion. The diverse selection including sculpture, fiber, photography and collage will open for view on August 9th, with a reception from 5-8pm during the Second Friday ArtWalk.

Points of View Art Gallery, 18 Pleasant Street, Brunswick
Artist reception: Friday, August 9 – 5 to 8 pm
Gallery Hours: Monday-Friday, 9 am to 5 pm
In the Main Gallery five Points of View Artists will present 2D/3D, an exhibit of art in 2 and 3 dimensions. The participants are Lucy Banfield, Barbara Bean, Beth Heron, Carolyn Judson and Ann Slocum. These artists have all worked within the limits of the framed painting and have also explored the more unlimited possibilities of working in actual space with many media such as wood, clay and metal.
In this exhibit a continuum is expressed which moves from the 2-dimensional illusion of space to the fully 3-dimensional object in space thus providing a challenging variety of results for the viewer to contemplate.
Judith Long and her husband Burke Long have created pairings of original art and photographic manipulations of that same art. On exhibit in the third floor Garret Gallery, their Extreme Makeovers provide two works for the price of one.
