The Bristol Road Galleries, Damariscotta, is participating in the Twin Villages ArtWalk in two ways this season: All four galleries on the Bristol Road will be open, and in addition, the work of the artists will be on display in a tent outside the Shuck Station raw bar at 68 Main Street, Newcastle. ArtWalk is presented in partnership with the Damariscotta Region Chamber of Commerce. The first ArtWalk of the 2018 season is on Friday, June 15, from 4:00-7:00 p.m.
Jan Kilburn will be at her gallery at 168 Bristol Road, demonstrating her watercolor techniques. This is a wonderful opportunity for visitors to see the artist at work and to see the full range of her work in the gallery. Her husband Tony Kilburn is manning the tent in town for the first ArtWalk. The tent will feature new work of all four of the Bristol Road Galleries artists, including originals and prints, and the work is priced to suit every budget. Jan says, “Landscape and seascape is my strong point. It is attempting to put the colors of nature together with the structures of manmade objects that fascinate me. I enhance the color a bit, but that, to me, is what makes it work. I live in an area that gives me unlimited inspiration: the sea, fishing villages, and Maine cottages.”
The Bristol Road Galleries are: the Jan Kilburn Gallery (168 Bristol Road), the Sinclair Gallery (172 Bristol Road), the Kathleen Horst Studio Gallery (179 Bristol Road), and the Kefauver Studio & Gallery (144 Bristol Road). Parking is free at all four galleries, and they are all within walking distance of each other. For more information, go to www.bristolroadgalleries.com or call 226-0974.
