“I am drawn to coastal wetlands and the ever-changing patterns of clouds as they dance across the sky,” says Houck. “The unpredictable and ethereal nature of the sky, juxtaposed with the calmness and serenity of the marshlands provide an infinite source of inspiration.”
Celebrating the allure and charm of southern Maine, the talented trio of Margaret Gerding, Julie Houck, and Ingunn Joergensen are taking over Shows on Maine Art Hill at 10 Chase Hill Road in Kennebunk. Doors open June 29 at 10 am. There is also an Artist Reception to follow that evening from 5-7.
Last year was full of growth and change as Maine Art Hill, the brand, and the new buildings took shape. The 2018 Summer Season was absolutely a crazy, fun and successful adventure. So now here comes the summer of 2019, and we are sure you are wondering what exactly can be expected up here on the hill.
As an artist, I approach each painting believing that it is not enough to paint the literal view. My goal is to also capture the essence of the landscape and hopefully connect you viscerally to that place and time.
