Season of Solitude – Claire Bigbee, Artist Choice

rovincetown is a special place that, for centuries, has captured the attention of many famous artists, poets, and writers. “For me, the quiet solitude in Provincetown offseason is a perfect getaway to catch-up and do hopefully do some painting,” says Bigbee. “The incredible light and colorful surroundings are captured perfectly in this Season of Solitude, as well as others sparked from this same visit.”

8th Annual Choice Art Show and Block Party 2019

This year we began with seventy-eight original works from thirteen artists; six pieces each.  Then, as most of you know, this is where the process begins. Between the artist,  local designer Louise Hurlbutt from Hurlbutt Designs, and you the voters, the show was curated down to three pieces from each artist. These three were carefully “chosen” to be in the show, and we so appreciate all the help we had making these difficult decisions. The three choices for each artist were just as arduous this year as in the past.

The Silverlining – Captured in Paint by Artist Claire Bigbee

The Silverlining is a 42′ Sparkman & Stephens sloop sailboat. She was designed to race for the Commodore of the yacht club in Marblehead, Massachusetts. She was built in 1939 entirely of wood and bronze by the well respected Maine builder Henry R. Hinckley. After racing for a decade, she was owned by several families in Kennebunkport, Maine. The Silverlining is celebrating her 80th year sailing the seas.

A Little Local Color – Bigbee, Joergensen and LeCours, A Three Artist Show

Capturing and celebrating the colors of Maine is one of the prime desires of a New England artist. It is both a skill and a talent artists Claire Bigbee, Ingunn Joergensen and John LeCours share. This talented trio is featured for three weeks at Shows on Maine Art Hill opening September 1. The artists will attend an opening reception at 10 Chase Hill on Saturday, September 1 from 5 – 7 PM. When three artists together are group together, there needs to be a sense of cohesiveness, a thread that weaves through and connects. For this show, it is color.

Blissful Awakenings – Claire Bigbee, Artist Choice

A painting, for Claire, is an expression of those moments when struck by a view. It is her attempt to keep that white heat moment of excitement.  The middle tones in this painting have a darkness, the colors are muted, but there is a harmonious glowing quality, like a thin veil over everything.
