Three Local Female Artists at Shows on Maine Art Hill

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.

A Piece of Quiet – Artist Insights from Liz Hoag

“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.”

Summer Shows 2020 – Janis Sanders, Ingunn Milla Joergensen, and Jill Matthews

Natalie Lane, Director of Galleries and General Manager of Maine Art Hill, says, “The early August opening of the Matthews, Sanders, and Joergensen show, is one I have been looking forward to all summer. The contrasting landscapes and seascapes compositions and color palettes range from bold to ethereal. They take us all on a journey of the senses through New England, and it’s seacoast with all its incarnations.”

Getting By With a Little Help from His Friends – Artist Insights from Janis Sanders

For artist, Janis Sanders, each painting is an individual journey, much like a musical score, in which one leads the other in tandem to completion. Some directions are more familiar, others open the doors wide to new latitudes and longitudes. You find both in this show. But where does the inspiration the drive, the desire come from? The Masters?
