Art & education in Maine featuring Ernest McMullen & Victoria Accardi runs September 2 – 16, 2017. There will be a cocktail reception and open house on Saturday, September 2nd from 4:00 – 6:00 pm. The exhibit features works by renowned landscape painter and former educator at College of the Atlantic, Ernest McMullen and realist painter and former student, Victoria Accardi.

Ernest McMullen is a gifted teacher who introduced multiple students to the fine arts during his 43-year tenure on the faculty of College of The Atlantic (COA). McMullen’s luminous work is highly sought after by collectors who are drawn to his iconic imagery – the quiet ambiance of evening closing in on the cool, blue-tinged waters of Somes Harbor or the steely tranquility of the moon over NE Harbor – as well as the sense of mystery and silence that pervades his landscapes.

Victoria Accardi is tremendously grateful for her four years of study with McMullen; “he’s the reason I stayed at COA,” she says simply. Accardi says that this ability to see beauty in the commonplace mirrors that of her teacher, Ernest McMullen. The streets of New York offer endless fodder for Accardi’s imagination. A realist painter with a fascination for portraiture and the human form, Accardi celebrates the fleeting moments of life that unfold in the city around her.
