The Art of Giving Old Things New Life

01/04/2018 0 Comments
Patrick Ploude has been a part of the Maine Art family for almost ten years. His sculpture has captured the hearts of many of our collectors, and we are always excited when new works come in.  Therefore, you can understand the enthusiasm he left in the wake of his latest visit. The twelve new pieces presently snuggled into the displays at Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture on 14 Western Ave in Kennebunk make January a “must-visit” month.  These pieces are simple, “discarded then discovered” objects that take the ordinary to extraordinary.

Patrick Plourde shares how he works from the thousands of elements strewn about his studio floor and tables. “I have to separate the pieces and parts into small piles,” he laughs. “Okay, these are horse parts, these are turkey parts, these are flower parts.  I know what I want them to become. Sorting them is a necessary part of my process.”

As much as the staff loves to see Floral Spigots come through the door with Patrick, it was very difficult not to fall in love with the new Diving Ducks. The colorful croquet balls that center each of his birds add a sense of whimsy that is hard to deny. These birds were created this fall for the holiday season.

“For the last four years, I’ve participated in the Bradbury Mountain Arts holiday show. It happens the weekend before Thanksgiving and really gives me a great jump start for the new year,” says Plourde. “I try to make the work fun and affordable. I want people to own it. That is what it is all about, right?” A graduate of Washington University MFA program, with a BFA from Portland School of Art, now the Maine College of Art, MECA, in Portland, Plourde calls Maine home. With a studio space in New Glouster, Maine he is inspired by his surroundings and a love of giving old things new life. Artist Patrick Plourde We welcome you to stop in and see these new pieces. Our winter hours are Thursday through Sunday from 10 am – 5 pm. As always you can also find these pieces online by clicking Plourde’s Artist Page.

Breaking News Breaking Ground

If you have stopped into Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture on Western Ave in Kennebunk or even wandered through Lower Village in the last few days, you may have noticed a bit of a ruckus going on at 5 Chase Hill Rd. It may be difficult to tell exactly what is going on, but with a little vision, you will be amazed.

When Helen Dorr’s property went on the market this summer, many of us on Chase Hill sat in wonder and a bit of worry about what exactly would happen to the sweet little house that has lived at 5 Chase Hill for so many years. Not only do we have business on the hill, we live here. This prime piece of real estate was not going to be on the market long, and we wanted to have some say as to what and who became our new neighbors, so we bought it!

It was a busy fall, but our plans are finally in place.  We are moving forward and we wanted to share an overview of the newest project for Lower Village. First and foremost, for those of you who live here, we want you to know that we contacted all of the surrounding neighbors prior to purchasing and have their blessing for our vision. Obviously, we needed permissions from the town and code officials, but to us, the permission from our neighbors was far more important.


Second, we are keeping Helen’s house. We recently heard the story of how it was built for WWII housing in Portland and was moved here when Helen and her husband first arrived in Kennebunk. We love this history. If anyone knows more of this we would love to have you share details.  We are presently moving the home to the back of the property, and with a bit of paint and TLC, it will be the cornerstone of what is soon to be Maine Art Hill.


Maine Art Hill will be a collection of seven small micro-galleries. Each will have coastal cottage charm and feel that will become a home to area artists and skilled artisans, while keeping the house for ourselves, as the new home for Maine Art Custom Framing and Prints. There will be a small sculpture garden with benches and walkways throughout the property making this little space a lovely place to visit and shop.

We apologize in advance for any construction noise and mayhem that will take place over the next few months. It is our sincere hope to be finished and open for business by the first of May. With the move of our framing and prints, we will also be looking at a wee bit of construction at our 14 Western Ave location, as well. We will do our best to keep all of you posted as things progress via the blog, emails, and Facebook. In the meantime, if you have questions or need anything, please call or come by. We will be open all winter, but be sure to check the website for hours.

A Day in the Landscape of Charles Bluett

12/07/2017 0 Comments

Gathering Skies

“I work from my studio, tucked away in the secluded, usually leafy part of my garden in Vermont,” says Charles Bluett, one of Maine Art Painting and Sculpture’s artists. “I watch the seasons as they come and go outside my windows—from deep, rich spring and summer greens to the majestic colors of autumn to the blankets of pure snow and ice.”

Bluett typically works from early afternoon deep into the late evening. He paints nearly every day and believes this to be important for any artist. It has allowed his work to consistently evolve and mature. However, sometimes a break is necessary.

“For me, everything is created in fits and starts with blocks of time where life gets in the way and prevents my brushes from doing as I always wish them to do. At these times, I will simply head for a few days or hours to the outdoors. Maine is one such place for me,” Bluett shares. “There I can unblock my thought process and allow a freedom or abstraction to take over, influenced by what I see and sense.”

It is on occasions such as these, he finds his work swinging in unexpected and untried directions. This is when, for example, his work can move from soft ethereal landscapes to a far bolder use of primary colors. Bold abstract color works are where he started as an artist and still feature heavily in his output, but they contain a softness and flow of his representational landscapes.

“I also work on numerous pieces at any one time. As I mix my paints and mediums, I find new colors that inspire me. I have multiple canvases on the go to accommodate this,” says Bluett. “Experimentation, as I see in the outdoors, with color and the blends of combining color, fascinate me.”

The Bluff Beyond the Dune Grass Low Tide at Early Morning

Charles did not start out as a landscape painter but became one as people asked him to take his use of color from my pure abstract work to create scenes that were clearly marked by this color use, but that had a representational aspect also.

“Initially I struggled with the concept,” Bluett admits, “but I have discovered I have an enormous affinity with landscape painting. I can now achieve it in a way whereby my love of the abstract and blending of color and tone is not affected by the need to create an actual scape within the work, yet does so at the same time.”

The Breakers

Bluett works with acrylics mainly. As a self-taught artist, he was never exposed to using oils. As a medium, acrylic gives him the versatility he desires. “Although some people may consider acrylic to be the ‘poor cousin’ to oil, I find I am able to create work that contains exactly the same depth and effects I feel oil would afford me,”  states Bluett. “And so, I am in no rush to make a change for the foreseeable future.”

Working with brushes, sponges, pallet knives and his fingers themselves, he achieves the effects he desires. “I have been known to literally sand down works which contain multiple layers of paint, to achieve underlying layers of color applied beforehand and allow them to subtly come forward into the work and layers of paint above them,” Bluett says. “At the end, I typically varnish my work but normally only with a matte finish. This allows the natural colors to do as they must.”

Summer Moon

Bluett feels blessed to find himself in an environment of passion, color, and peace, regardless of the ups and downs of the process and the final results he creates. He puts everything he has into a days work of painting.

“There, in a second, is something in front of you, over which you have no control, that is so splendid that you can’t help chuckle to yourself at how effortless and beautiful what you see has in-turn taken to create compared with that day’s huge efforts with one’s own painting. This is how I gauge success with my work in a real sense and excites me hugely upon my return to the next canvas I work upon.”

Charles Bluett

Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture is thrilled to have a variety of works from Charles Bluett. We welcome you to stop by to view each in person during this holiday season. They may be a bit large to stuff in a stocking, but we would be more than happy to help you wrap one up for someone special. Check our website for holiday hours or call with any questions.

Time at the Beach with Alex Dunwoodie

Time at the Beach with Alex Dunwoodie

Alex Dunwoodie grew up in Buzzard’s Bay, Massachusetts. The sea, the sand, and the shore are where she was raised and are very much a part of who she is. When we first came to know Alex, her paintings were a product of her study of ordinary things collected from this place she loves. She painted small works focused on the treasures found near the shore but placed in collections scattered around her home.  In the last two seasons, she moved her study to the water, and we marveled at the detail and photo-realistic quality of her work. Recently, however, her attention has shifted to focus on the treasures Mother Nature, she herself, collects at the water’s edge.

Rocky Shore 2 by Alex Dunwoodie Rocky Shore 3 by Alex Dunwoodie

Dunwoodie shares, “Painting the shoreline was something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. It was a natural progression from studying the water. Spending time there, I couldn’t help but become interested in the beach rocks gathered where the dry land ends.”

Dunwoodie still spends as much time as she can in Buzzard’s Bay and has been “meaning to” paint these treasures in their natural habitat for some time. They are a stretch for her, as it the larger size canvas she has been working.

“A goal this past year was stepping out of my comfort zone. This included painting larger, and trying some subjects I’ve been contemplating and meaning to get to, especially the beach rocks,” says Alex. “The larger scale allowed me to loosen up, and I can breathe in the spaces working larger. I realize my idea of “larger” is still others’ small works, but for me, these 12 x 12’s, Rocky Shore 2 and Rocky Shore 3, and especially the 20 x 16, Wading, Looking West at Dawn, feel big.”

Wading, Looking West at Dawn by Alex Dunwoodie

For those of us who never leave the beach without a pocket full of glass, shells, and stones, these paintings hold great meaning. “The paintings of rocks are for the people, like me, who spend as much time looking down for treasures as looking out at the water when walking the beach. Simply put, to me, the rocks along the New England shore are fantastic. I just can’t help that they find their way to my home all the time.”

Obviously, time at the beach has had a significant influence on Dunwoodie’s new works.  However, on a side note, she attributes the new work to something else, as well. Something she feels every artist, professional or amateur, can benefit from.

“This past year I spend one day each week volunteering at the RISD Museum,” Alex shares. “It has driven home the immeasurable benefits of spending any time you can with art.”

If you are in the Kennebunks for the holidays and are interested in “spending some time with art,” please stop in and see our wonderful collection of Alex Dunwoodie’s work, and many other artists we are lucky enough to represent. Check our website for our holiday hours.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year – Kennebunkport’s Christmas Prelude

While most of us have just settled in for our annual feast of turkey and all the fixings, or maybe by now it is time for a quick, merely a blink, afternoon, full-belly nap, many around Kennebunk and Kennebunkport are fixing to begin one of the biggest and most celebrated times of our year, Christmas Prelude.

Kennebunkport’s Christmas Prelude begins Thursday, November 30, with evening events. There is a brief pause mid-week, then we begin again for the second weekend and run through Sunday, December 10. Voted the #2 Christmas Town in America by HGTV and designated as one of the Top 100 Events in North America for 2015 by ABA, Kennebunkport’s Christmas Prelude is a winter destination for many across the country. This will be the 36th year of festivities and each year it is better and better.

Officially the kick off is the tree lighting in Dock Square at 5:30 pm on Friday, December 1. The square is full of folks who have wandered in to celebrate our classic Maine Christmas. Come and join the Christmas caroling with the Kennebunk High School Chamber Choir. A huge thank you to Kennebunk Savings for sponsoring this event.

For nine straight days, you will find interesting local fun scattered across town. There is something for everyone. From chowder cook-offs and parades to beer tasting and, of course, the Village Art Walk, Passport to Prelude is on Friday, December 8 from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm. Stop by and get your “Passport to Prelude” stamped at participating Village Art Walk galleries, including Maine Art.  Pick up your free Passport at participating galleries or the Chamber of Commerce Kiosk, 1 Chase Hill Road, Kennebunk (across from H.B. Provisions) as early as December 1. Collect your stamps through the last day of Prelude, December 10 for your chance to win prizes! See the website for details.

The Kennebunk Business Association has an all-inclusive website to help both locals and visitors maneuver their way around town. Everything from parking to tickets to activities can be found on this page. Activities begin Thursday, December 2 at 2:00 pm. See the schedule for details.

I Love it. I bought It. Now how do I hang it?

11/16/2017 0 Comments
We are thrilled you came to visit the gallery. We are excited you have purchased a piece of artwork for your home. We can’t wait for you to send us an image of the new piece in its new environment. Wait? What? I have to take this home and hang it myself. Eek! Oddly, this is the biggest fear of most of our collectors. Falling in love and purchasing the art was easy compared to how to decide, measure and hang it in your home? Below are some general guidelines on placement and composition to help you with this process. The number one rule is to hang work at eye level. Sounds simple, but eye level changes, right? Most galleries hang work at about 58 inches high, some as high as 62 inches.  Remember this measurement is the center of the artwork, not at the top of the piece or the frame. This can become a bit problematic if you have a wire hanger, so it’s time to do some math. The folks at suggest measuring the distance between the wire and the top of the frame, then measure the height of the art and divide it in half. Once this is done, measure 58 inches on the wall, add the measurement of half the art’s height and subtract the distance between the wire and the top of the frame. Put the nail here.

Take the process slow and try to only put one nail on the wall. We also suggest creating a template the size of your artwork, this makes it easy to move and change before you commit to the hammer. If you are hanging multiple pieces, you want to make sure you have two to three inches between each. Also, consider the entire collection of work as one installation. Find the center of it and work from there. Some other considerations. If you are hanging work in a child’s room, remember their eye level is quite a bit lower than ours.  Also, if a room is mainly used for sitting, especially a dining room, the “eye level” is considerably lower. Just to make everything a bit more confusing, we add furniture. This changes your measurements again. Use the same process as above, but be aware that any artwork should be six to eight inches above a sofa or chair and normally somewhere between a half and two-thirds of the width of what you are hanging it over.  When in doubt, go bigger.

The links and images here are clickable for more information, and of course, there are many great decorators and interior designers to help. However, if all else fails, give us a call. We are happy to work with you. Send us an image of your room and we have the technology to help you find that perfect spot and show you what it will look like. If you are local, we are happy to make a home visit to help. We want you to love your new artwork and deciding where you will hang it is a big part of that. We are open every day at 10 am, please feel free to give us a call. 207-967-2803. SaveSaveSaveSave SaveSave SaveSave SaveSave SaveSave SaveSave SaveSave SaveSave SaveSave

Save the Date – Summer of 2018

11/02/2017 0 Comments

Next year’s show schedule is set, and we couldn’t wait to share the excitement with all of you. We know how quickly summer calendars fill up, so be sure to pencil us in.

Artist Holly Ready The Works of Holly Ready

In 2018, we are thrilled to start the season with our 3rd Annual Spring Show featuring artist Holly Ready. Ready is taking over the first floor of The Gallery on Maine Art Hill from May 26 through June 16.  Holly lives and paints in Cape Elizabeth surrounded by views that inspire the amazing sunsets for which she is most known.  Her color and light are perfect to kick off a fabulous summer of art in the Kennebunks.

On June 9, Shows on Maine Art Hill opens for the summer with the 7th Annual Choice Art Show, the only show curated by you. This is our seventh year combining this show with the Kennebunkport Festival. Fourteen Artists. Forty-two works. We always love seeing your choices. Be on the lookout for more information on which artists are participating, how the show works, and how to vote for your favorites beginning in May.

Bethany Harper Williams The Works of Bethany Harper Williams

Beginning June 30, Bethany Harper Williams and David Witbeck are paired at Shows on Maine Art Hill as an amazing duo.  Their show will run for three weeks, closing on July 19. Many have discovered and fallen in love with both artists over the past few years. We truly enjoy filling Shows on Maine Art Hill with this work. We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of this show.

On July 21, our show gallery at 10 Chase Hill will magically transform into three galleries. Well, kind of. Last year we received wonderful feedback from our customers and collectors about how much they loved having three artists all sharing one space for the Frey, Granter, and Gerding show. This was a show where each of the three rooms became a gallery in itself.  Our only job was to match three unique and varied artists to form a fabulous trio of works. With such success and positive feedback, we decided to do it again, and again, and again.

The Works of Susan WahlrabThe Works of Rebecca KinkeadThe Works of Jeffrey Fitzgerald

The first of the three trio shows features Susan Wahlrab, Rebecca Kinkead, and Jeffrey Fitzgerald. This show begins on July 21 and runs through August 9.  The second will open on August 11 with Liz Hoag, Janis Sanders, and Trip Park. This show runs until Thursday, August 30. Normally this is our last week of the summer at this gallery, but with our past September feeling very much like summer, we said, “What the heck! Let’s do one more.”

The Works of Liz Hoag The Works of Janis Sanders The Works of Trip Park

The extended season show will run from September 1 until September 20, and that isn’t even the most exciting part. This last three-artist show features three of Maine Art’s newest artists, John LeCours, Claire Bigbee, and Ingunn Milla Joergensen.


Last, but certainly not least, our season wraps up back at The Gallery with our beloved and wonderfully talented William B. Hoyt. His solo show will fill the first floor at 14 Western Ave starting September 22.

So with all of that said, please keep us in mind while deciding on which weeks to visit us here in Kennebunk. Of course, we would love to have you with us all summer, but we know for some of you that’s not possible. We do our best to keep you up to date on all the goings-on, but there are a few things you can do to make sure you stay connected. Please add your name to our email list for reminders if you don’t get them already. We keep your information private and will not inundate your inbox. Also, follow us on social media Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest and of course keep an eye on our Calendar on our website.

The Gallery at 14 Western Ave is open all year round. Stop by and say hello… especially for Prelude.

A Mainer by Heart and Home – Artist Bethany Harper Williams Shares

10/26/2017 0 Comments

When artist Bethany Harper Williams was young she was introduced to Maine via a little spot just up the coast from us called Ocean Park. Even as a child she was drawn to the water and knew her first visit to our coast would not be her last. She, like the rest of us, knew that once Maine’s salt water gets in a person’s blood it never leaves.

Now she is back, and Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture is happy to have her. Bethany Harper Williams is a wonderful new artist we now have the pleasure of representing.

Let's Go Fly a Kite

Williams has always been creative, always sketched, and always drawn and painted, even as a child. “My parents have very amateur paintings of mine framed in their cottage,” Williams shares. “My grandmother passed down her old oil paint set when I was ten, and my grandfather built me an easel.”

She went to Concordia University in Montreal for Fine Arts and graduated with a BFA, with Honors in Graphic Design. “After graduating, I moved to Toronto and worked for a design firm. I stayed there for 15 years. I loved my job and the creative atmosphere.” After son number three in 1999, however, she left the firm to start her own small design business from her home. “I figured I could be more flexible, but still keep my creative side happy.”

“One Saturday afternoon everyone was occupied, a rarity in my house. I brought out my paints which I had purchased on a just in case whim. I had a photo of one of my kids running with a kite on the beach in Biddeford Pool. Big beach, big sky, little person. I was very nervous,” admits Williams. “I painted all afternoon. The time flew by. I was in a zone and on a high. I painted until midnight.” Even at this point, she knew this was the beginning of something bigger.

Red Umbrellas Yellow Beach Chairs

It was William’s husband who first brought her back to Maine. He had been coming to Biddeford Pool since the early ’70’s. “It started off taking a week or two of holiday. Then once I quit working full time, we spent the month of July and Labor Day weekend,” shares Williams.  “We rented for many years and finally bought five years ago. The community has become just as much “home” as Toronto.”

“I only painted a few paintings a year for the next few years but all were inspired by summers in Biddeford Pool. It wasn’t until 2011, I decided to have a show,” says Williams. “I knew I wanted to do something in Biddeford Pool, but I didn’t know what. We ended up throwing a cocktail party for all our friends. Many friends had no idea I painted. Needless to say, it was a big success.”  This inspired her to want to go further with her painting and changed her focus from graphic design to painting.

We welcome you to come in and see Bethany Harper Williams complete collection of work. We open every day at 10 am at 14 Western Ave in Kennebunk. Please check our website for seasonal hours.

An Autumn Afternoon of Art

10/19/2017 0 Comments

Join us for an autumn afternoon this Saturday, October 21st.

From 12 pm to 4 pm.

Food. Music. Art

We are celebrating the fall colors, the cool air and the addition of two new artists to the gallery. Both are excited to join our family, and we want to give them a proper Kennebunk Welcome. There is nothing like hot apple cider and fall bites to make a Maine gathering complete. We are also thrilled to have live music from local guitarist Beau Dalleo. So, as you are out wandering and enjoying the sunshine this weekend, we hope you take some time to come say hello and visit.

“Her work represents the youthful energy of the present day yet has peaceful and calm roots planted in nostalgia. This paradox is expressed beautifully in her simple yet sophisticated style of painting.”

“The first time I painted outside, en plein air, in Portsmouth Harbor, I realized that nothing can replace the excitement and energy of reacting to the elements and painting directly,” he says. “Feeling the sights, sounds and smells and reacting to them with ‘mark making’ was a true epiphany.”


Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture, at 14 Western Avenue in Kennebunk, is open daily at 10 am. Check the website for closing times as seasons change. FMI call 207-967-2803.
