R. Scott Baltz will be hosting his August Reception on Sunday August 19, 2018 from noon to 5 pm. On display will be 30 oil paintings of the local landscape. Baltz has maintained a studio in Mount Desert since 2002, though this year marks the second anniversary of his new studio space just south of Somesville at 46 Parker Farm Road, Mount Desert. His paintings of the local landscape are colorful and expressive, influenced by the American Modernists and the Group of Seven of Canada. His larger works are represented by The Gallery at Somes Sound in Somesville.
