The Silverlining – Captured in Paint by Artist Claire Bigbee

This series will be available for Claire Bigbee’s Summer Show beginning August 10th and running through September 2nd at Shows on Maine Art Hill.

The Silverlining is a 42′ Sparkman & Stephens sloop sailboat. She was designed to race for the Commodore of the yacht club in Marblehead, Massachusetts. She was built in 1939 entirely of wood and bronze by the well respected Maine builder Henry R. Hinckley. After racing for a decade, she was owned by several families in Kennebunkport, Maine. The Silverlining is celebrating her 80th year sailing the seas.

Along with Bigbee’s new works, this show will also feature works from artists Bethany Harper Williams and Kathy Ostrander Roberts. The complete online show will be available for viewing on Wednesday, August 7th.  See the show in person on Saturday the 10th at 10 am with an Artist Reception that evening from 5-7 pm. Open to the public.
