Pop-Up Artist Dina Gardner

My paintings reflect the things that I am drawn to oceans and water, skies,  forests, marshes, and meadows.  I’m also inspired by my travels and I love cities and architecture. When I paint, from a photo reference or even when I paint plein air, I’m not painting what the subject looks like but rather I am painting what my response is to the subject. 

Pop-Up Artist Robin Swennes

My style tends to be figurative with impressionistic touches, usually showing close up compositions with just enough detail to reveal the subject. I have concentrated on Maine–themed images and fresh fruits and vegetables because I like the idea of the life they represent.

Pop-Up with Christina Thwaites

My paintings address the familiar. Banal in subject matter, yet relevant. My work reflects the context and geographical location of where I reside at the time and has moved and traveled a lot– my practice as an artist has been a means of grounding myself so as to feel part of and confident within each new setting.
