Interpretations for “Winter is Coming” run the gamut from William Irvine’s iconic house painting  with a woman burning brush and Philip Barter’s dancing smelt shacks to David Vickery’s  larger-than-life realistic oil painting of marbles and Philip Koch’s memory of a magical winter  wonderland.

New to the gallery is Henry Isaacs who lives in Portland, Maine, but spent many years living and painting on Cranberry Island. His oil painting “Along the Tarn, Bar Harbor” seems to  exemplify the seasonal transition with a range of yellows and rusty reds juxtaposed against purple,  green, and blue.
