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.

SYLVIA BANGS: GALLERY RECEPTION at Centre Street Art Gallery

| July 10, 2014 | 0 Comments
 
 An Artists’ Reception for guest artist Sylvia Bangs, and Centre St Arts Gallery, LLC member artists will be held on Friday, July 18 during the Bath Third Friday Art Walk at 11 Centre Street, Bath, from 5 to 8 pm.

Sylvia Bangs lives in Portland, Maine.  She was born and raised in Gray, Maine.  She moved to Portland in 1959 and attended the School of Fine and Applied Arts, (now Maine College of Art) for 4 yrs.

Her work has been widely exhibited in Galleries and Art shows throughout Maine and Massachusetts and has been written up in many state and local newspapers, including Maine Sunday Telegram.
 
She has studied with nationally known oil and watercolorist Lawrence Sisson; New York and Maine artist John Muench; and James Elliot of Bath, Maine.

Sylvia says “I started drawing exclusively in black and white pen and ink, using extremely fine point, Rapidograph Pens.  Now all my original drawings are 18″ x 24″ and reflect a deep feeling of certain animals of New England and the world.
 
Based on innate sense of design, texture, shapes, forms and circles. I convey my message with a strong personal accent, by putting designs of animals + other things in my drawings, pushing my drawings “to the edge” giving my work profound familiarity. 

I am constantly seeking new textures and forms to incorporate into my surrealistic drawings, filling the whole with subconscious forms.”
 
Sylvia Bangs’ work will be on exhibit at the Centre St Arts Gallery, 11 Centre Street, Bath, from June 29 through August 9, 2014.

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.

DanaMonochrome rszd
What: Monochrome
When:  July 3-31st, 2014
Where: Whatnot Gallery, Spindleworks
Reception: July 11th, 5-8pm
 
Spindleworks is often known for an exuberance of color expressed through paintings, weavings, pottery and other creations. What can sometimes be missed in the glory of color is the subtle power  in the initial mark making, early sketches, and ideas that happen daily in the studios. 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. Please join us for the Second Friday ArtWalk July 11th, 5-8pm

The first Bath ArtWalk of the season will be held on Friday June 20th, from 5-8pm, with over 30 artists at open studios, galleries, and group shows presenting paintings, photographs, and works in ceramics, glass, wood, and other materials to express each artist’s vision.

Explore the street level galleries and upper level studios in Bath’s award-winning, historic downtown district. Most of the artists’ studios are clustered around Front and Centre Streets, allowing visits to multiple locations, including a group exhibit at Bath City Hall and art displayed at the Kennebec Company showroom in the Customs House.

A handful of artists are located outside the downtown where they will welcome guests in their open studios.

All venues and a description of the participating artists can be found on the 3rd Friday Bath ArtWalk map/brochure, available at downtown Bath businesses and at visitbath.com. Venues will be marked on location with festive blue or green bowhead flags and yard signs.

The featured artist this month at Sharon Drake Real Estate on Front Street will be Felicity Sidwell, with refreshments catered by Mae’s Cafe.

Bath ArtWalk also features musicians and other sidewalk performers at the corner of Front and Centre Streets, and a 3rd Friday concert at the Chocolate Church Arts Centre following ArtWalk each month.

Music on the sidewalk in June, 5-7pm:

Liam Swift – a 12 year-old singer/songwriter from Portland, Maine who blew Bath ArtWalk attendees away last year with his beautiful voice and catchy piano.

At the CCAC at 7:30pm:

Hollow Body Eclectic – this four-piece band came together in March 2013 to perform a series of CD release parties for songwriter Peter Alexander’s solo album, Promised Land (released in October 2012). The band has quickly expanded its repertoire with original compositions by both Peter and Johannah Harkness, who plays keyboards. With Sheldon Bird on bass, Tom Masucci on drums, and all four members on vocals, the Bath-based band has gained a reputation for creativity, musicianship, and fun, high-energy concert performances.

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.
