If you plan a trip to Kennebunk, Maine, this July, and August, be sure to add the Ellen Granter Solo Summer Show to your busy calendar. This one-woman show begins on July 16 and runs until August 11. Granter has been a part of numerous shows on Maine Art Hill, but it has been quite some time since she has done a solo. If you can’t wait until then, be sure to visit us at the gallery this winter or anytime, virtually.
“I get inspiration from many sources, including the changing colors, patterns, and atmospheres of the landscape around me, the excitement of watching birds in the wild, and the random idea generator that is my imagination. In each painting, I am searching for an elegant balance of spare compositions over large fields of luminous color,” shares Granter. “When observing everyday subjects such as sparrows, I try to pay attention to the small spaces between them and the abstract patterns that are created by their characteristic movements.”
For Granter, there is excitement while watching birds, or really anything, in the wild. Her paintings express this desire to create beautiful and pure images. When viewing her works, that same excitement comes through.
Be sure to mark your calendars and plan a wander up to Maine Art Hill in Kennebunk, Maine.
