Half expecting to hear bird songs, you enter the door to Maine Art Shows and are greeted by color and depth, beauty and whimsy, grace and tranquility. This show not only has a theme, it has a feeling. Happy.
When William was asked to create a personal reflection of ‘his Maine’ for Maine. As they see it., of course there was a memory to walk with him through the process. “On the Waterfront” began in a story from the small town of Stonington, Maine.
All three rooms were full to capacity, food and drink flowed perfectly next to the buzz of brush strokes and beauty, and over a dozen artists discussed their inspiration and shared their thoughts and ideas with art buyers and each other. This is success.
Maine As They See It will run at Maine Art Shows at 10 Chase Hill Rd in Kennebunk for three weeks, starting on July 27th. We welcome you to stop in and experience this work first hand. As always, the show will also be available on-line starting Thursday, July 26th, and will run through August 6, the length of the show.
Next Saturday, June 27th, from 5-7 pm, Philip Frey will host the opening of his solo show, New Work, with Maine Art Shows. All three rooms of the gallery at 10 Chase Hill will be filled with pieces Philip has put together for this one-man show.
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.
It is definitely a treat to wander through the rooms with nothing but silence to critique the work. Time is undisturbed as the memories and visions of Philip Frey spill into each room. Views of Acadia National Park and Schoodic Pennisula, abstracts of water and sky, and children captured in play complete the celebration of summer.
The entire building is coming together to give you an show like no other. A show you, the voter, helped curate.
