Ten Artists. Three Pieces Each. Thirty Reasons to Celebrate.
Ten of our well-loved artists delivered three pieces of never before shown work adding up to 30 paintings celebrating thirty years in the business.
Here is what artist Bethany Harper Williams had to say about her part in this amazing show.
One Fine Day to Remember
“The beach is my happy place, and when I’m painting these beach scenes, it takes me right back there, in the zone, hearing the soothing rhythm of the waves, smelling the salt air, and feeling the laughter and joy of the figures as I apply the paint. People often comment that my paintings make them smile, and I have to admit that I smile when painting the beach.”
Two Boats Riding with the Wind
“Being on the water with the wind in your sails, the sun on your back, listening to the water slapping the hull, and enjoying time with friends is magical. It also makes me appreciate the power of nature and the ocean’s vastness, which we are fortunate to enjoy.”
3 x 3 Boats Afloat
“I have always been captivated by lobster boats, and lobster boats are ubiquitous in Maine, providing me with lots of inspiration. There is a charm to the shapes and bright colors that give each boat a unique personality. I should call these collages portraits as I’m trying to portray the character of the individual boats.”
