Hoyt can fly by the seat of his pants like a few others. Usually, he works from a variety of images he takes with his camera as he travels. Yet he still embraces the moment and absorbs all he can from each experience that may wander across his path.

Margaret Gerding – Summer Show Season 2023 – Save the Date
“Offering the marsh, ocean, woods, and rocks, Timber Point is one of my favorite places for painting,” shares Gerding. “It also holds an emotional attachment for me…. vacationing in Maine as a child, and it was a ‘rite of passage’ to be old enough to go to the island during low tide. Somehow being out on that island makes you feel like you’re standing on the edge of the land.”
Creating in Perfect Time – Artist Insight from Bethany Harper Williams
“People often tell me my work is happy or that it makes them smile. That is truly a reflection of me,” shares Williams. “I am in my happy place when I am painting, especially when I am painting memories of Maine.”
The First Fisherman – Artist Insights from David Witbeck
“Many people comment on my perspective, the low point of view. To change it up, I try to have a high point of view. We all know eye level can get a little boring. I can make a boring situation look dramatic by going low or high or using a wide angle up close.”
Patterns and Paintings – Artist Insights from Bethany Harper Williams
“I don’t plan where the patterns will go. They are just an expression of what I’m feeling at the moment. I often leave a painting and come back to it to see it from a different perspective and then add to it,” says Williams. “That’s usually when the fun stuff happens!”
Witbeck Revisited – Artist Insights from David Witbeck
“This year, I revisited some earlier ideas. Iggy, the fisherman in the boat with the larger-than-life fish, and Taking Out, a similar fisherman but with an entire basket of fish, are themes I haven’t done for a few years. So I thought I’d give them another try now that I’m a better painter,” laughs Witbeck.
Witbeck and Williams, Together Again – Summer Show Season 2022
“We have showcased this talented pair a few times with great success,” shares gallery owner John Spain. “Both Witbeck and Williams revel in Maine’s summer, so saying goodbye to the season with these two artists seems perfect.”
The Peacocks at Snug Harbor – Artist Insights from Claire Bigbee
The peacock is a possessor of some of the most admired human characteristics and symbolizes integrity and the beauty we can achieve when we endeavor to show our true colors.

Contemplate the powers of the peacock when you need more vibrancy and vitality in your experience. The peacock can also help you on your spiritual path and breath new life into your walk of faith.
Reoccurring Themes – Artist Insights from Ingunn Milla Joergensen
“Another returning theme is the nest. They are fascinating constructions on their own, so strong and fragile,” explains Joergensen, “Still, they also awake a feeling of being safe and surrounded. We all need that.”
