Maine artist Ryan Kohler shares his thoughts on By Heart, a new piece for the 9th Annual Choice Art Show on Maine Art Hill in Kennebunk, Maine.
As the 9th Annual Choice Show gets underway, we are excited to share more video footage from Dina Gardner. She shares her inspiration for working every day and for the 9th Annual Choice Art Show in Kennebunk, Maine.
Dina Gardner is a wonderful pastel artist who is quickly becoming a regular here at Maine Art Hill. After joining us in the POP-UP Gallery this past summer, she is back as one of seven featured artists in the 9th Annual Choice Art Show.
John, our fearless leader, is going to hang a piece of Kathy Ostrander Roberts’ artwork in each window. Two face the parking lot at the front of the building and one large window facing our parking lot at the back of the building. Each of these windows can be viewed from your car or can be approached for a better more detailed view.
The People’s Choice is all up to you. By casting your vote for your favorite piece from each artist, you decide the seven paintings that will display the title of PEOPLE’S CHOICE. Each and every artist represented in the show is one of the very best up and coming artists in the area. You can trust that no matter which piece you choose, many others will be in complete agreement.
Kathy is one of our artists that encourages viewers to touch the surface of her work. Each has a texture that begs a touch. Plus, it feels a little naughty to run your hands across the surface, like a small child doing something you probably shouldn’t be doing. With the multitude of layers and the process Kathy uses, it is completely safe.
Kathy is known for her encaustic work. Wax, pigment, a blowtorch….sounds perfect. Yet, even with such an intriguing and unique medium, Kathy still pushes herself to experiment and create in new and exciting ways.
“Having worked for years in dry pigment in the form of pastels, I find using a blow torch very freeing compared to paint. It is not only rhythmical but can be meditative as well. The outcome is never certain, and the result is always engaging.”
