It’s been ten years since John Spain, owner of Maine Art, first saw Lyman Whitker’s copper Wind Sculptures. It’s been ten years since conversation began with Stacy Christiansen, Whitaker’s wife and business partner. It’s been ten years since the amazing kinetic sculpture garden began greeting all who visit the Kennebunks. Ten years— it is time to celebrate.
Next summer’s show schedule is finished, and we couldn’t wait to share the excitement with all of you. Summer calendars fill up quickly, and we want to make sure you fit us in. We will do our best to keep you up to date on all the goings-on. Please add your name to our email list for reminders. We’ll keep your information private and not inundate your inbox. We look forward to seeing you soon, no matter the season.

All of these artists have in common a love of birds. Their keen observations of them help give their paintings and sculpture a veracity that ultimately allows us share in their affections. Everyone likes birds, indeed.
