We have seen the craggy, sea-worn man before in Mooney’s work. The Old Man and the Sea and Storm Watch are classic fisherman. They are the men who have been here for generations and will continue to be here long after we are gone. But why do they stay? Why do they get up at dawn and come home at dusk facing brutal wind and freezing water? The same reason that lures the rest of here, the water.
Thanks so much to all those who came out to support Craig Mooney and Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture during his opening day. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Remember, the show runs until October 23rd. Please feel free to bring a friend in and share this incredible show. The gallery is open everyday, and as always, the on-line show is a great way to take a peek if you are far away and wishing you could be here.
Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture is going through a bit of transition today. We are still open for business, but the majority of the first floor will be a bit crazy as we prepare for the opening of From A Distance, Craig Mooney’s one man show that opens tomorrow.
On Thursday, September 24th, the online catalogue for the show will be available to view. On Saturday, the 26th, “From A Distance” officially opens at 10 am. You will find Craig’s work on the first floor of Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture on 14 Western Ave in Kennebunk. Consider this your invitation to come in, step back, take a deep breathe, and enjoy.
The range of Craig Mooney’s work is fabulous. Whether your connection is to the water, the land surrounding it, or the people who call it home, Craig’s work will find your eye and your heart.
