To begin with, “thank you” to all who came out for the opening of Philip Frey, New Works. From eleven yesterday morning until seven o’clock in the evening we enjoyed the company of so many wonderful people. Philip and the staff put in a long day at Maine Art Shows, but the time was well worth it. This was obvious when only an hour after opening a third of the pieces were boasting little red stickers. Philip Frey, New Works was an immediate success.
During an opening it is always interesting to eavesdrop on an artist with new clients. The passion and love for what they do is never as obvious as during these moments. With the quality and quantity of work in this show, Philip was kept busy answering questions and inquiries about particular pieces, as well as his process. Even discussions of place came into play. The love of Maine and her beautiful coast was shared by all who attended and often was the deciding factor in which piece to take home. Appreciation for a painting grew ten fold when both artist and patron were able to share memories of a place so perfectly captured on canvas.
Ten Chase Hill Road in Kennebunk is lucky enough to be the home for Philip’s new collection of work for the next three weeks. Maine Art Shows is open from 11am – 5pm every day and will happily show you around. If you can’t make it in by July 16th, please visit the show on-line, Philip Frey, New Works. Don’t forget Philip has additional work at Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture down on 14 Western Ave in Kennebunk, and on his Artist Page, as well.
