Camden galleries ArtWalk

On Thursday 8/29 from 5 – 7 pm the Camden galleries are teaming up to do an “art walk”! Colin Page’s new gallery on BayView St. has spiked Camden’s artsy energy, and we’re piggybacking on the date of his next new show reception. Participating galleries so far include myself and my neighbor Camden Falls, as well as Carver Hill and Daac Designs, both on BayView with Page Gallery. (It’s not quite the straightforward, one Main Street nature of Rockland, but hopefully folks can make the rounds!) Would love for you to drop by for a refreshment!
Also, if you are so inclined, please take a moment to vote in Best of the Best for your favorite area businesses! We all appreciate your support!
Thank you!

Artists Paint Live During Wiscasset Art Walk

If art is your passion, then Wiscasset Art Walk on Thursday, August 29, from 5 to 8pm, is the place for you! Wiscasset Village will be humming with exceptional exhibitions and accomplished artists painting live during the evening. 

Sylvan Gallery, 49 Water St., is celebrating 19 years as a fine art gallery representing a select group of contemporary, award-winning New England artists. For this special anniversary exhibit, new work includes a series of nocturnes by Neal Hughes; Robert Noreika’s Cribstone, an oil painting of the Bailey Island stone bridge, also known as Cribstone Bridge; new paintings by Crista Pisano which she completed during the Castine, Maine, Plein Air Festival in July; and new work by Wiscasset artist Susannah Haney. Gallery owner Ann Scanlan, a fine artist currently exploring the theme of animals in local rural farm settings, knows all the artists she represents. She’ll be on hand to talk with visitors about the paintings on exhibit and the stories behind them.

For 35 years, Wiscasset Bay Gallery, 67 Main St., has been specializing in fine 19th through 21st century American and European paintings. The current exhibit, Impressionism, Post-Impressionism & Modernism, features paintings by artists from America, France, and Italy including the charming work of American artists Leon Kroll (1884–1974) and Suzanne Demarest (1900-1985). Gallery owners Keith and Cordelia Oehmig will be delighted to talk with visitors about their featured artists and the remarkable collection of paintings their gallery exhibits. Keith’s own paintings, often of iconic local seaside and landscape scenes, are prominently displayed.

The Maine Art Gallery has invited artists to paint en plein air in the Village during Wiscasset Art Walk, and the public is invited to look over shoulders and watch as visions unfold on canvas. Some of the regional artists participating are Lisa Kyle, Stephan Giannini, Renee Lammers, Ian Bruce, Geoffrey Bladon, and Tony van Hasselt.  This is the kick-off for the gallery’s three-day Paint Wiscasset event which culminates on Saturday, August 31, with a reception and art sale at the gallery,15 Warren St., from 5 to 8pm. 

For WAW visitors who would like to make their own art, the Weaving Project, 64 Main St., welcomes children and adults to participate in the on-going process of creating a large, collaborative art piece. Visitors are encouraged to create a braided strand from an array of colorful and sparkly materials and then weave it into a wall-sized community tapestry. The tapestry is being built on a grid of orange construction fencing, so appropriate for Wiscasset’s summer of ubiquitous orange barrels!

Philippe Guillerm Gallery open for ArtWalk Waldoboro

Philippe Guillerm Gallery , June, 2019 (Forest’s Sound by Philippe Guillerm)

An exciting exhibition of innovative new sculptures kicks off the ArtWalk Waldoboro summer season at the Philippe Guillerm Gallery at 882 Main Street in Waldoboro, Maine.
 
As his work (and his life) clearly show, French-born sculptor, Philippe Guillerm, is not afraid to follow his dreams, wherever they take him. His new work honors that vision.
 
Surrealist imagery and anthropomorphic abstraction are combined to add motion and magic to compositions created from a wide array of materials – from Caribbean driftwood to discarded musical instruments. Guillerm’s driving force is to protect and then enhance the subtle curve or powerful gesture inherent in each original found piece, whether created by Mother Nature or the maker of an obscure violin. Philippe teaches us to see what was hidden within the familiar or even mundane forms of life.
 
Complex new forms twist, fold, and bend into postures that challenge the imagination while retaining the purity of line that leads Guillerm’s contemporary sculptures in a new direction.
 
“The works on view this month push way beyond the limits of the artist’s previous work,” says gallery curator and Philippe’s co-captain in life, Jacqueline Guillerm.

Waldoboro ArtWalk is a unique event in a destination that is equally unique with a 19th Century Theatre, a Historical Society Museum and many historical homes throughout the town, along with generations-old working farms and modern business establishments. The town’s culture boasts a recently renewed enthusiasm for traditional natural fiber production, cheese making, artisanal brewing, soap making, sustainable farming, and other lost agrarian arts. Culturally rich and authentic, Waldoboro is becoming a popular destination with miles of scenic river frontage, a thriving arts community, and a growing interest in its rich past.
ArtWalk Waldoboro takes place every second Saturday from 4 – 7 June – October.
