David Witbeck’s work has a classic charm and character. He captures coastal life like no other New England artist. This year, however, he decided to use the Choice Art Show to play with another idea. Witbeck says, “I’ve been painting my signature fishermen for eleven years. They’ve become my identity as an artist, but it’s… Read more »
“With all my paintings, luminosity is an important element. It is usually the vehicle that involves the viewer with my work,” says Ready. “Each painting starts out with careful attention to the composition. The process of layering shapes of color on a clean canvas, using value, temperature and intensity, becomes an intuitive dance of the senses. Eventually, the painting evolves and takes on it’s own personality once the colors start interacting.”
Hoyt is a lover of all things Maine, especially the sailboats, and often his imagination and attention are caught by the simple things Maine has to offer. “The setting sun bathed us in light when it dropped below the eaves of the porch. The water sparkled and danced with it,” says Hoyt. “I have to pinch myself when a scene like this unfolds before me. It’s practically sensory overload.”
The locals and the tourists alike recognize these marshes and have fallen in love with them as Gerding has. “I have always been drawn to this area where the meandering waterways change with the tides, the long grass shows its golden colors, and the protective stance of distance trees is forever present.”
If you missed the opening, but want a chance to see the show, it runs until Thursday, June 29. We are open every day from 11AM to 5PM. If you cannot make it to Kennebunk, please check in out on line at www.maine-art.com and contact us if you have any further questions. 207-967-0049 or email@example.com.
Saturday, June 10, Maine Art Shows starts their summer season and, continuing with tradition, opens with The 6th Annual Choice Art Show. This is the sixth year for the Choice Art Show and, as always, the art stays true to the charm and appeal of the area. Twelve artists have submitted works celebrating every aspect of Maine life. This state is incredibly diverse and all of its beauty is well represented.
John Spain, owner of Maine Art, has been involved in the festival since its conception. It has changed and grown over the years, but each year he is still overwhelmed with the amount of time, money and talent donated by Maine businesses and individuals to make this week such a success.
We love when our artists are able to visit the gallery and spend time with their show. There is nothing like walking into a gallery and having the chance to talk to the creator of a one of a kind piece of work. The sharing of insights and stories between client and artist cannot be replicated.
When an artist loves and is inspired by her subjects, the joy and passion is evident in the work. It emanates from the canvas and the room is filled. Beginning Memorial Day weekend, the entire first floor of Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture will be filled with the joy and passion of artist, Rebecca Kinkead.
This weekend is all about the mothers.
