New Dawn – Artist Insights from Claire Bigbee

“The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of something elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.” – John Bucha.

New Dawn is from an early morning at Square Pond in Shapleigh, Maine.

“I woke up in amazement as this image spread before me,” shares artist Claire Bigbee. “The light was blinding, the trees in silhouette, and the stillness of the lake was a contrast to what’s been going on in my personal life.”

The idea of fishing is such a calming experience. It’s not so much the fish the fishermen are after but the quiet and stillness.

“It is a perfect metaphor for me and a decisive moment to hold onto,” says Bigbee. “I am learning that inevitable failures teach persistence and patience.”

This show is a must-see for locals and out-of-town visitors from September 2 to 27. Every day from 10 AM to 6 PM at the Gallery at the Grand at 1 Chase Hill Rd in Kennebunk. If you can’t visit the gallery,  see the show virtually at FMI 207-967-2803.
