Publicity-wise, I was also a featured artist in the “Annual Artist Listing” of Maine Home & Design’s April issue and the Castine Patriot ran a feature article about me, my work, my organic garden and my local activism in the July 30th edition.
Working on a series of figurative paintings for the Courthouse Gallery show was a fun and instructive departure from my regular subject matter. I hope to include more figures in my future work.
The high bid for a Monhegan Island painting I donated for the Center for Maine Contemporary Art’s Annual Auction held at the Owl’s Head Transportation Museum sold for 70% above the reserve price.
Rock Point Gallery in Northeast Harbor opened this summer and I’m happy to announce, became the third Maine art gallery to represent my work. It has a small stable of well established and up and coming artists and a very nice space to exhibit in. Beyond the “Maine Artists and the Figure” show at the Courthouse Gallery, I continue to show my work there and at Dowling Walsh Gallery in Rockland.
