Hoyt is a wanderer and an adventurer. He has more stories to tell than most, and he remembers in details as vibrant as his canvases. It is rare to find him without a camera around his neck snapping these moments that just cannot be forgotten. An artist sees the world through different eyes, and Hoyt has trouble not stopping to capture each scene he may someday commit to paint. “Images are everywhere,” says Hoyt with a grin. As an outsider, it is difficult not to wonder if his need to stop and snap ever gets in the way. However, Hoyt laughs when asked about it. “It never gets in the way,” he says perplexed. “It is the way.”
Craig Mooney has been exploring. Not in a sail boat. Not out on the sea. He has been exploring in his studio in Stowe, Vermont, and he has invited us to join him.
On Saturday June 11, Maine Art Shows will start the season, and continuing with tradition, will open with the Choice Art Show. This is the fifth year for the Choice Art Show, and as always, the art itself stays true to the charm and appeal of our area. All twelve artists have submitted works celebrating every aspect of Maine life. From the shores, to the forests, to the farms, this state is incredibly diverse, and all of its beauty is represented here.
Sunday, May 22nd Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture is happy to join the Nonantum Resort in hosting the first of two Spring Progressive Dinners. May’s tour will be a small group touring several of Kennebunks quality establishments in the resort shuttle. With only fourteen guests, this will be an intimate gathering. This visit will start with a private party at Maine Art Gallery for appetizers.
We are have an amazing and varied inventory and an incredible array of artists. But we have always found it beneficial to listen to the opinions of others with different views. And so, the Choice Art Show was born. This one of a kind Maine art show allows you to help curate the final show. No matter how well we know our clients, it is still often difficult to know for sure, what you, our customer, will fall in love with. And so, we ask.
As everyone in Maine begins to celebrate the coming of spring, here at Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture, we are already looking toward the coming summer. Which means…The Summer Show Schedule! We have planned four single artist shows and one group show. All will contain new and unique pieces from many of our amazing artists.
Everyone sees through a different eye. Beauty, as well as art, is objective. Even artists stand before the same landscape, encapsulated by the same surroundings, yet the results captured on canvas vary in a way that is indescribable.
It was only after a conversation with Vermont State Curator, David Schutz, that Susan truly began to understand her work’s connection to the concept of reflection.
The image she created is one of new growth scattered with the multitude of colors wildflowers in Maine bring.
Set at the top of the island, the Monhegan Lifesaving Station overlooks Mohegan Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Now dormant, Janis found inspiration, not only by what is, but by what was.
