This collection at Shows on Maine Art Hill, 10 Chase Hill Road in Kennebunk, features the work of Julie Houck, Claire Bigbee, and Liz Hoag. This is the last show of the season for the hilltop gallery, and it is slated to be a beauty. The doors are open on September 5 through September 24.
“Though sometimes it’s hard to focus on complex tasks when thoughts of what’s going on outside these walls swirl in my head, I have managed to quietly create,” shares Hoag. “The creamy feel of paint on a brush and the unexpected success of an even a tiny section of a painting that feels just perfect makes my days.”

Each piece of Hoag’s features nature and light interacting in a way that provides a new and different perspective on the normal surroundings of the natural world. Mother Nature often illuminates her creations in a way only few stop to notice. Liz Hoag is one of those few.
“People think that being an artist and being a lawyer are exact opposites, one, a left brain activity, one a right brain activity,” says Liz Hoag. “I disagree.” Liz Hoag completed her undergrad at Cornell and received her Bachelors of Fine Arts in Studio Art in 1983. She then earned her Masters of Fine Arts in… Read more »
You take a photograph of a sunset over a lake and realize later when you look at the photo that there were branches in your view.

You take them in without thinking about them.
