Artists have been traveling to coastal Maine for decades, each trying to capture the land’s beauty and waters bordering it. William B. Hoyt is an artist who knows and loves this area and works and plays here frequently. Each of his canvases has an almost photographic quality. This attention to detail forces the viewer to lean in closer to experience every facet that forms the whole and becomes classic Maine.
We love it when artists share little snippets of what was in their minds when creating new works. Below are some details regarding different pieces from Hoyt’s newest show.
At Maine Art Hill, we know the power of dynamic duos. Scheduling two different but truly talented artists together simultaneously was purposeful. “We have observed over the past few years that many of our collectors are enamored with the works of both of these artists,” says owner John Spain.” With that, this is the second time we have paired these two together not only for the enjoyment of our clients but also for the artists themselves.”
Hoyt can fly by the seat of his pants like a few others. Usually, he works from a variety of images he takes with his camera as he travels. Yet he still embraces the moment and absorbs all he can from each experience that may wander across his path.
