The reception for ‘Abstractions’ draws a crowd at the Maine Art Gallery. The reception celebrated seven Maine artists and the show continues through August 10. Maine Art Gallery is located at 15 Warren Street in Wiscasset and hours are Thursday-Saturday 10:00-4:00.
Guests were clearly delighted with the paintings and sculpture curated by Elaine Pew. A large triptych by Abby Shahn commands attention on the first floor and everywhere one turns is work that is vivid and intriguing. Paintings by Marjorie Arnett, Michele Caron, acrylic panels by Stew Henderson, and sculptures by Peter Bennett, Jay Sawyer, and Susan Bennet round out the show.
The Maine Art Gallery Wiscasset is a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement and preservation of painting, sculpture and graphic arts through exhibitions, lectures, demonstrations, and educational programs for children and adults.
