Saturday, June 10, Maine Art Shows starts their summer season and, continuing with tradition, opens with The 6th Annual Choice Art Show. This is the sixth year for the Choice Art Show and, as always, the art stays true to the charm and appeal of the area. Twelve artists have submitted works celebrating every aspect of Maine life. This state is incredibly diverse and all of its beauty is well represented.
We love when our artists are able to visit the gallery and spend time with their show. There is nothing like walking into a gallery and having the chance to talk to the creator of a one of a kind piece of work. The sharing of insights and stories between client and artist cannot be replicated.
When an artist loves and is inspired by her subjects, the joy and passion is evident in the work. It emanates from the canvas and the room is filled. Beginning Memorial Day weekend, the entire first floor of Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture will be filled with the joy and passion of artist, Rebecca Kinkead.
For the last five years Maine Art Painting and Sculpture has opened their summer season with the Choice Art Show. This year is no different. The opening reception for the 6th Annual Choice Art Show will be on Saturday, June 10th at Maine Art Shows and will help to culminate the Kennebunkport Festival week. However, we all know the Choice Show really begins May 1st.
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.
The nationally acclaimed paintings of Rebecca Kinkead have arrived in the Kennebunks. Her love of animals, children in motion, and the outdoors is celebrated in this one-woman show at Maine Art Shows in Kennebunk. Whether you are a collector, or viewing her work for the first time, this dynamic show is an intimate step into the heart of the artist.
Maine is famous for seascapes, skies and sunlight, and no visit to the coast is complete without them. This month, Maine artist Holly Ready and Maine Art Shows celebrates all three with the upcoming show at 10 Chase Hill Road in Kennebunk. This is a one-woman show of Ready’s most recent work and features the most amazing skies of summer. We open Saturday, July 2 and run through Thursday, July 21. We will kick off the show with an Ready’s Artist Reception from 5pm – 7pm Saturday, July 2.
As everyone in Maine begins to celebrate the coming of spring, here at Maine Art Paintings and Sculpture, we are already looking toward the coming summer. Which means…The Summer Show Schedule! We have planned four single artist shows and one group show. All will contain new and unique pieces from many of our amazing artists.
Our Small Works show opens Saturday, November 28th. We will have the entire first floor of the gallery dedicated to works that are 20” by 20” or smaller.
