Pop Up Artist L.K. Sleat

I work mostly on location and then move the works into my studio where I will work until completion. The scenes in coastal Maine have catapulted my vision to an abstraction of everyday imagery into whimsical scenes played out on the beach, in the dunes on the rocks, to sailing on Casco Bay, and many more, salt-water sanctuaries.

Pop Up Heather Blanton

A professional artist since 2004, Blanton has successfully shown in nearly 50 exhibitions and her work can be found in public and private collections around the globe from Amsterdam and Atlanta to Manhattan and Miami. She has been featured in numerous publications and media outlets and continues to work as the conduit to capture her client’s passions of skiing, cycling, golfing, horse racing, and everything in between.

Pop Up with Christina Thwaites

My paintings address the familiar. Banal in subject matter, yet relevant. My work reflects the context and geographical location of where I reside at the time and has moved and traveled a lot– my practice as an artist has been a means of grounding myself so as to feel part of and confident within each new setting.  

Pop Up Artist Robin Swennes

My style tends to be figurative with impressionistic touches, usually showing close up compositions with just enough detail to reveal the subject. I have concentrated on Maine–themed images and fresh fruits and vegetables because I like the idea of the life they represent.

Pop Up Artist Dina Gardner

My paintings reflect the things that I am drawn to oceans and water, skies,  forests, marshes, and meadows.  I’m also inspired by my travels and I love cities and architecture. When I paint, from a photo reference or even when I paint plein air, I’m not painting what the subject looks like but rather I am painting what my response is to the subject.
