On Saturday, June 27th, Philip Frey hosted the opening of his solo show, New Works, with Maine Art Shows. All three rooms of the gallery at 10 Chase Hill Road are filled with pieces Philip has created for this one-man show. This show will run until July 16th.

Philip lives in Sullivan, Maine in a lovely little house nestled in the woods just off the beaten path.  His studio sits right next door with a short stone path connecting the two through the trees. He has surrounded himself with the solitude and woodsy beauty of Maine hidden minutes from the rugged coast of Acadia and Mount Desert Island.  He has found the best of both worlds.

Over the years Frey has immersed himself in watercolor, acrylic, and oil; painting still life, figurative, and landscape. Yet the one constant throughout most of his work has been the inspiration Maine has given. Whether it’s the rough and rocky coastline or a group of young children celebrating summer on the dock, there is an outside presence of where we call home. It weaves its way through all medium and style to show off its charm and allure through Philip’s work.

Over the next few weeks we will offer ‘Behind the Scenes’ posts about Philip and his collection of work on Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture’s Blog. Individual paintings will be seen through his eyes and stories will be told through his voice as we take a closer look into the beautiful world of Philip Frey.

New Works will be at Maine Art Shows for the next three weeks.  They are open every day from 11-5.  If you can’t make it in for a visit, the online show. Philip also has more work on his Artist Page at Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture or come into the gallery at 14 Western Avenue here in Kennebunk to see his complete collection.
