Ellen Granter on Sailing – A Love-Hate Relationship

08/17/2017 0 Comments
 

“I began painting boats recently because I love the way they evoke a sense of peace and calmness,” says Granter. “However, some of my fondest childhood memories of the sailing world were not on the water nor were they calm and peaceful.”

While speaking with Ellen about her newest collection, she shared some of her memories of her father, who loves sailing, and family and friends who also love the sea. Her favorite moments were not the day at sea, but more the riotous camaraderie that followed a great day of sailing.

“I survived several seasons of sailing in the Rochester Frostbite Association,” remembers Granter. “They were an intrepid group of fierce competitors who braved the brutal, bitter cold of a Lake Ontario winter and sailed no matter the conditions.” Granter laughs as she retells her story. “I immediately get seasick on the water, and these events began my reference to sailing as merely “The S Word”.  Even though I did not love being out on the boat, I did love the loud and often hilarious rules-protest arguments in the bar afterward. They made it almost worth the whole effort.”

With so many memories of this world and the bonds created with others who love sailing, it is not a surprise that Ellen found her way back to the water.  It is also no surprise that her favorite view is from the safety of the harbors of Maine and New England. Here is where she finds inspiration.

If you are a boat lover, be it sailboats, dories, or schooners, Granter’s present collection of work is a can’t-miss opportunity.  Not only do they capture the love of the sea and harbors, many are small enough to be hung in the cabin of your favorite vessel.

A Gallery of Flowers – Studies by Margaret Gerding

A Gallery of Flowers  – Studies by Margaret Gerding

Margaret Gerding is not only a painter, she is also a teacher. Spending many days in the marshes or on the beaches of the Kennebunks, she shares her gift of art with her students. It was during one of her recent sessions that she asked her students to stretch themselves a little further. She issued the 30-Day Artist Challenge, a test to push the artists’ skills beyond their normal comfort zone. Not only did Gerding issue this challenge, she joined in.

For Gerding, the landscapes and seascapes of Maine are her love. She paints them every day with a smile. However, part of this challenge was to paint something that isn’t a “normal” subject matter. “It is an exercise that reminds the artist to really examine a subject, while at the same time staying loose with the short amount of allotted time,” says Gerding.

After a bit of deliberation, she chose flowers.

Due to this, not only did Margaret bring a season’s worth of amazing work with her for this show, she brought a very special gift, the gift of her flowers.

As you enter Maine Art Shows, each room is designated to one of the three featured artists. Gerding has a room near the front of the gallery. Adjacent to it is a small entryway that presently houses her “garden”. Here you will find many of the small studies Gerding completed during this challenge. With more than fifteen small flower paintings, they are a must-see part of this show.

Over the course of the next few weeks, Maine Art Shows’ three rooms are each filled with a different artist. One of those artist, of course, is Margaret Gerding. She has recently become a Kennebunkport resident and is incredibly happy to be back in the place of many happy childhood memories. With her home and studio in Cape Porpoise, she is able to capture the beauty of our area every day.

We welcome you to come visit. Maine Art Shows is open every day from 11am to 5 pm. It is also viewable with our virtual tour by clicking here. The show will run through Labor Day. Please call or visit us online to see details or get more information. 207-967-0049 or  www.maine-art.com.

Three Rooms, Three Artists, Three Shows in One

08/11/2017 0 Comments
 
Three Rooms, Three Artists, Three Shows in One  

It‘s going to be three for three at Maine Art Shows in Kennebunk. A three-artist show, featuring the works of painters Philip Frey, Margaret Gerding and Ellen Granter, will be on display for three weeks, beginning with an opening reception tomorrow, Saturday, August 12th. The artists will attend the reception, which is 5 to 7 PM.

“All three artists have strong ties to Maine and capture the true essence of the state,” says gallery owner John Spain.  “Though each has distinctively different styles and subjects, the show as a whole is a wonderfully cohesive body of work.”

Philip Frey, a Maine native, lives and works near the central coast.  He often travels to Acadia National Park, where he finds inspiration in the rugged environment. Primarily an oil painter, Frey’s subjects and styles vary. “I have a need to explore and discover, to stretch my limits so as to become a better painter,” Frey says.  “Cityscape, abstract, interior and figurative genres are ways for me to do that.”

Philip Frey

At one time Frey considered himself a landscape painter, but that has changed. “I think the variety (of subject and style) influences my landscapes in a positive way. Working with pure abstraction, in particular, helps me break down what good composition and a dynamic palette could be. In turn, my landscape composition has become more dynamic and has allowed me to home in on what is most important in each painting.”

Margaret Gerding has recently moved to Maine after spending many summers here as a child. Her new home and studio in Cape Porpoise give her complete access to the marshes she loves. Gerding says, “Even after having visited Kennebunkport my whole life, I am still surprised every day with new places to paint and explore.”

Margaret Gerding

Margaret’s collection of oil paintings, whether on panel or canvas, were inspired by what is right outside her doorstep. “These paintings are my recording of the quiet moments on the marsh — a touch of light, a pop of color or a connection with the land,” says Gerding.

Ellen Granter

The solitude and quiet Gerding finds in the marsh, Ellen Welch Granter finds in the harbor. Once known for her bird paintings, Granter is now focusing on boats, from sailboats to schooners to dories. “I began painting boats because I love the way they evoke a sense of peace and calmness,” she says. “Whether they are in the fog, in the sun, or in a busy harbor, their curvy lines and sense of possibility are always an invitation to paint.”  Granter’s compositions, peaceful symmetries of boats and their reflections, incorporate Maine’s distinctive and nuanced soft blues and grays.

We open Saturday, August 12th at 11am. Our artists’ reception starts is from 5-7 p.m. Please come by and visit. All three artists will be present and look forward to discussing their work and process.

Twenty Years Deserves Twenty Days – 20th Anniversary of Maine Art

07/20/2017 0 Comments
 
Twenty Years Deserves Twenty Days – 20th Anniversary of Maine Art

“Twenty years deserves twenty days,” says John Spain, owner of Maine Art.

Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture is marking twenty years of fine art in the Kennebunks with their 20th Anniversary Show. Thirty-three artists, past and present, are honoring this accomplishment with one-of-a-kind pieces to commemorate the occasion. The show opens on July 22nd at Maine Art Shows and will run through August 10th.

The artists at Maine Art are some of the finest in the area. Each has a distinctive style, but all have a connection to Maine. Amy Lewia, Gallery Director, is excited about the extensive collection of work, but for her it is more. “This show has a lot of meaning, and we love the idea of bringing all of these artists together to celebrate with us, sharing new work alongside memories from the last twenty years.”

David Witbeck

Natalie Lane, the Gallery Manager, agrees with Lewia wholeheartedly. “We have, and have had, an incredible amount of talent here. It will be exciting to see the works of present and past artists together under one roof.” Many mediums and styles will be represented. Sculpture to canvas, acrylic to oil, and abstract to absolutely everything else. “It will certainly make for an impressive show,” says Lane.

Maine Art has two galleries here in Kennebunk. Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture, at 14 Western Avenue, and Maine Art Shows, found up the hill at 10 Chase Hill Road. Each will be hosting events throughout the three-week period. Artist visits are scheduled, demonstrations will take place at both galleries, and artist talks are planned on-site and at a variety of local businesses.

Gretchen Huber Warren Janis Sanders

“It all begins on July 22 with the biggest opening reception party Maine Art has ever thrown,” says Spain. “There will be music, food, and of course, art.”  The reception will be from 5-7 PM. Additional events are posted on Maine Art’s online calendar. “We have a great deal to be thankful for here. Our goal is to truly celebrate our artists, our customers, and our community every day for these twenty days.”

Spain and his staff have filled the weeks with events for all to enjoy, but his true focus is on the show itself. “This show is important for many reasons, not the least of which is the significance of the work. To commemorate our 20th anniversary we asked each of the participating artists to supply us with that one painting they feel is their best work from the last twelve months,” reminds Spain. “They have delivered.”

When John Spain first came to town in 1991, it was as the new owner of Kennedy Studios, a small gallery focused mostly on framing and prints. In three years’ time, one gallery became two, but it wasn’t until 1997 that he took the name Maine Art. In 2000, he built the new gallery space on Western Avenue, then later branded the two galleries together as one entity.

Susan Wahlrab

“The Kennebunks are an amazing place to visit, but an even greater place to work and live,” says Spain. He gives credit to the support of this community throughout the years as a reason behind his success. “I love it here. It’s home.”

The 20th Anniversary Show will open at Maine Art Shows at 11 AM on July 22nd. The gallery is open 11 AM to 5 PM daily. FMI visit maine-art.com/20th or call 207-967-0049. The online 36o° virtual tour will be available Friday evening on the top of the show page. Click here to view it.

Participating Artists Include – Kate Adams, Christine Brenner, Annie Burnett Hidell, Christopher Castelli, Sandra L. Dunn, Alex Dunwoodie, Jeffrey T. Fitzgerald, William Fothergill, Philip Frey, Margaret GerdingEdward Gordon, Ellen W. Granter, Ed Hicks, Liz Hoag, William B. Hoyt, Rebecca Kinkead, Karen McManus, Craig Mooney, Scott Moore, Elizabeth Ostrander, Trip Park, Denise Patchell Olson, Barbara Jones Peabody, Tom Puschock, James Rivington Pyne, Holly Ready, Janis H.

Craig Mooney Opens at Maine Art

Craig Mooney Opens at Maine Art

Artist Craig Mooney is stepping back to a time when art was an escape.

“People are always going to be in search of love. People are always going to be in search of adventure. People are always going to be in search of an escape,” says Mooney. “This show gives them all three.”

Celestial by Craig Mooney

Maine Art Shows is hosting Craig Mooney’s one-man show beginning July 1st. This show will run for three weeks and contain not only his classic semi-abstract seascapes and landscapes, but also some fabulous new figurative works.

Mooney says, “In this time and age we are entering, people are looking for an escape. This new series of work offers that. My recent works are more romantic motifs. I want to give people a place to go for a bit of peace. It’s that feeling found when spending time with a painting, then suddenly it captures you. It holds on, and you are there, even if only for a while. It’s more than just seeing it, it is feeling it. The work has to be sincere.”

Dory Calm by Craig Mooney Surf Riders by Craig Mooney

Born and raised in Manhattan, Mooney left the city in 1988 to attend Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts, where he received a fine arts degree in 1992.  He secured his first large commissioned work from New York Hospital in 1995. “The work for the hospital turned into a series of works and more commissioned pieces for Cornell Medical College,” says Mooney. “Thanks in part to this early success, I was able move to rural Vermont and set up a studio.”

He is inspired by all the places he has called home – his native New York, the mountains and farms near his studio in Stowe, Vermont, and the beaches of Maine and Massachusetts where he spends as much time as he can.  Mooney imbues these semi-abstract renderings of place with emotions he feels are universal and timeless. “I love my studio in Vermont, but with all the time I spend in Kennebunk and the weekends I spend with family on Cape Cod, I have become a ‘coastal painter.’ I am not sure when it happened, but it is part of who I am now,” says Mooney.

The romance of his landscapes is also found in his figures. Amy Lewia, Maine Art’s Gallery Director, notes, ”I’m very excited about presenting some new imagery in this solo show. His figurative works and cityscapes are absolutely breathtaking, and we can’t wait to share more of them with our customers.”

Craig Mooney

Mooney looks forward to discussing his work and his process during his Artist Reception on Saturday, July 1st, from 5 to 7 PM.  This show runs though Thursday, July 20th. Maine Art Shows is at 10 Chase Hill Road and is open from 11AM to 5PM daily. If you can’t make it to town, please visit the show online by clicking here.

The 6th Annual Choice Art Show

We want to take time today to say THANK YOU! to all that were involved in the Kennebunkport Festival this week. It was a tremendous success. The incredible staff at Maine Media and all the volunteers and sponsors.

Maine Art wrapped up our week with the 6th Annual Choice Art Show Artist Reception at Maine Art Shows up on Chase Hill Road in Kennebunk. We had an incredible turnout and celebrated in true Kennebunkport style.  It was lovely to have so many of our artists on hand to talk about their work and their process.  They are truly part of our family, and the Choice Show is a reunion of sorts for us.  Be sure to check the blog over the next few weeks for Artist Insights to their choice for the show.  It is always fun to see what they have to say.

Lastly, our events would not be the same without the help of our vendors. All three rooms and the outside porch were full to the brim with people enjoying the music from the Mike Walsh Trio out of Portsmouth. We binged on fabulous food from David Hurd, Personal Chef and Catering. And yes, we did raise a glass or two from Down East Wines in Kennebunk. Also check out Dave Dostie’s pics of our event at Kennebunkport Festival – Choice Art Show (coming soon). A huge thank you to all for helping in the success of the show.

The 6th Annual Choice Art Show Opens June 10th

THE CHOICE SHOW

On Saturday, June 10th, Maine Art Shows starts their summer season and, continuing with tradition, opens with The 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.

The People’s Choice, the Editor’s Choice, and the Artist’s Choice make up the three works on display from each of the participating artists. The People’s Choice works are the first twelve pieces curated for the show. Thank you to all of our voters this year! The voting results were made public this week, and we were very impressed with this year’s choices. The other two will remain a secret until this Saturday, when the show opens at 11 a.m.

Amy Lewia, Maine Art’s Gallery Director says, “We keep the Editor’s Choice and the Artist’s Choice a secret until the show opens. This year’s artists’ submissions were incredible. Not only was it a difficult choice for the voters, the artists themselves struggled with deciding on a favorite.”

Rebecca Falzano, Editor-In-Chief at Maine Home+Design and Maine Magazine, and the woman behind our Editor’s Choice, also took on this challenge. She chose the second twelve of the thirty-six pieces in the show, one from each artist. This is her first year participating in the decision making process for the Choice Show. The two magazines are publications of Maine Media Collective, the producer and promoter of the Kennebunkport Festival.

John Spain, owner of Maine Art says, “We love having one of the editors from Maine Media help curate this show.  They have been involved in the Editor’s Choice since the beginning,” says Spain. “Keeping tradition is important. The Choice Art Show is something our clients look forward to each year. They are invested in it. This event truly has a wonderful sense of community.”

The 6th Annual Choice Art Show opens on Saturday, June 10th at 11 AM. Maine Art Shows is located at 10 Chase Hill Road in Kennebunk. The opening reception for the show is that same evening from 5 to 7 PM, and is part of the Kennebunkport Festival. Many of the artists attend the reception and will be available to discuss their work. This is our only ticketed event of the summer, and tickets are $45 and can be purchased online at www.kennebunkportfestival.com. For more information about tickets and the show, visit www.maine-art.com/choice or call Maine Art at 207-967-0049.

The show will be available online on Saturday, June 10.

Kinkead in the Kennebunks

05/25/2017 0 Comments
 

This weekend is the start of the summer season in Maine. The sun has finally made its way to the Kennebunk coast, and we are planning to enjoy Memorial Day Weekend in style. It is time for the first show at Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture.  Rebecca Kinkead’s widely anticipated solo show opens on Saturday, and we have the privilege of having her here with us. Talk about time to celebrate!

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.

John Spain, owner of Maine Art says, “I’m pleased Rebecca will be joining us for the reception on Saturday evening. Her last show at Maine Art happened to coincide with her prestigious residency in Iceland,” says Spain. “That show was a such a great success, many of our clients fell in love with her work, and subsequently Rebecca. Now, they are thrilled with the opportunity to meet and chat with her this weekend.”

Kinkead’s studio is in Vermont, so she is looking forward to a little escape to the coast. This will be her first trip to the gallery. No matter how much we try to explain the magic of the Kennebunks, it must be experienced first hand. We can’t wait to show her around town, and watch her fall in love with Maine Art and our surrounding community.

The show opens at 10 AM on Saturday, May 27th. Then join us on Saturday evening from 5-7 PM for the Artist’s Reception. The gallery at 14 Western Ave will be full of fun and friends. The Mike Walsh Trio will be playing outside, and David Hurd has whipped up an amazing array of appetizers to share. The entire first floor is dedicated to Kinkead’s work and will be a fabulous first stop to kick off the holiday weekend.

If you can’t make it to Maine this weekend for a visit, remember the Kinkead show will run until Thursday, June 17th, and we are open 10 – 5 Monday to Thursday and 10-6 on Friday to Sunday. The complete show is also available to view on our website beginning Wednesday, May 24th.

Hope to see you soon!

Rebecca Kinkead’s Spring Show

05/18/2017 2 Comments
 

Barn Owl (Blue Yonder) - Rebecca Kinkead

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.

John Spain, owner of Maine Art says, “This is Rebecca’s second show with Maine Art. We were incredibly happy with the success of her first show with us last summer. The gallery was visited by collectors from across New England. Kinkead’s work is like no other artist we represent. There is an energy and life she creates with her medium. It simply must be seen to be appreciated.”

Kinkead’s process is a bit different from classic oil painting. With the addition of chalk powder and linseed oil, she creates a concoction she can seriously get her hands into. For her, it is more than just a physical process, it is a feeling.

Kinkead explains, “Paint and wax are layered, dripped and scraped to create a sense that the subject is still emerging…still ‘becoming’. When I begin a painting, I often start with my fingers in the wax/paint mixture. I feel the form with my fingers. The more familiar the form, like my dogs, the easier it flows. Working with my hands allows me to find the form faster, easier, and more naturally.”

Fetch (Sunrise) - Rebecca Kinkead

Her dogs, all three of them, are featured in one of her many series, aptly named, Fetch. This year’s show will also contain works from her Traveler and Cannonball collections, which feature children. The inspiration for these pieces is a personal one, as well.

“A few years back I received a Christmas card from a friend. Her daughter was on top of a mountain leaning into the wind. I remember that feeling, that freedom. It reminded me of trust – trusting one’s self and trusting one’s environment,” says Kinkead. “I think some of my best paintings have come from trusting my gut, letting go, and not thinking too much, the same way children often do.”

Meadow Bloom - Rebecca Kinkead

Kinkead’s first degree was from the University of Vermont. Yet it was while she was working on her Master’s Degree in Experiential Learning at Minnesota State University, Mankato, that she found her love of ceramics. Soon after that graduation, however, when in a tiny studio apartment in Boston with room for an easel only, she tucked away her clay and picked up her paintbrush.

“I have painted professionally since 1999. In 2009, I made the move to my present studio in Vermont,” says Kinkead. “I had worked in acrylics for seven years. In the past, I didn’t have the open space or ventilation for oil. Once I moved to Vermont, this was no longer a problem. It took me almost six years to get to know this new medium, but I will never go back. Oil is just delicious to work with.”

Rebecca Kinkead

Rebecca Kinkead’s one-woman show opens Saturday, May 27, with a an artist’s reception that same evening from 5-7 pm. The show runs through Thursday, June 17. Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture, at 14 Western Avenue in Kennebunk, is open daily from 10 am to 5 pm. FMI call 207-967-2803. Kinkead’s show can be viewed online beginning Thursday, May 25, at www.maine-art.com/shows.

CHOICE ART SHOW

6th Annual Choice Show Artists 6th Annual Choice Show Artists

For the last five years Maine Art Painting and Sculpture has opened their summer season with the Choice Art Show.  This year is no different. The opening reception for the 6th Annual Choice Art Show will be on Saturday, June 10th at Maine Art Shows, and will help to culminate the Kennebunkport Festival week.  However, we all know the Choice Art Show really begins May 1st.

For those of you new to Choice, and a recap for the veterans, we begin with seventy-two original works from twelve artists; six pieces each.  It is then narrowed down to three pieces from each artist. These three are carefully “chosen” to be in the show. This is where it gets fun.  One piece, the artist chooses. One, Rebecca Falzano, Editor-In-Chief at Maine Magazine and Maine Home+Design, chooses. And then there are the third and final piece for each artist. This choice is all up to you. By casting your vote for your favorite piece by each artist, you decide the last 12 paintings that will be featured.  Each and every artist represented in the show is one of the very best in the area. You can trust that no matter which piece you choose, many others will be in complete agreement.  All you need to do is click the link and let us know which one you like best BEGINNING MAY 1ST.

Upon clicking, you will be directed to the 6th Annual Choice Art Show page. Here you begin voting.  Each screen shows the six paintings each artist has submitted.  All you have to do is tell us which one you love most by clicking it and then clicking, “Vote.” Once you decide, the site will show you what other voters liked and then move you forward to the next artist. You have until Sunday, June 4th to vote.

Watch for our Facebook, website and email updates on Monday, June 5th for the announcement of the “People’s Choice” winners.

On Saturday, June 10th, the 6th Annual Choice Art Show opens at Maine Art Shows at 10 Chase Hill in Kennebunk.  As of this moment, no one knows exactly what the show will look like. Will your favorite make it to the walls of the gallery?  Come in and find out. The show is open until June 29th.  Remember – if you can’t find the piece you fell in love with, visit the Artist’s Page on our website or the main gallery at 14 Western Ave. All the works are far too beautiful not to showcase somewhere at Maine Art, so they will be on display at one of our two locations once the show opens.
