To Dance with Light & Energy, Part II at the Gallery at Somes Sound

To Dance with Light & Energy, Part II
September 15 – September 28

The Gallery at Somes Sound

Featuring
Brian Emerson

“I recently rushed to an opening in the trees to catch a sunset. I’m always surprised at how fast it falls once it hits the horizon. I love these moments and, as a painter, I always try to look twice; once to appreciate and again to capture. The light and energy at dusk and dawn are always my favorite for its exaggerated shadows and colors! My hope is to give an angle or perspective possibly not taken by the viewer so as to inspire or at least help them see it in another way.” Brian Emerson

Eline Barclay

“Here on the Maine Coast I live inside my paintings. I am surrounded by a tidal marsh, providing me with a daily visual lexicon of inspirational subject matter. The colors of weather – the Maine light – the violence of storms with heavy air and dark skies – the foggy mists and soft glows; all evoke feelings of awe as well as peacefulness. There is also a mood of elegy in my work, brought on by the growing threats to the fragile ecosystems of the coastal wetlands.” Eline Barclay

Gallery at Somes Sound opens ART & EDUCATION IN MAINE

The Gallery at Somes Sound invites the public to an evening reception, Saturday, September 3rd, from 6:00 – 8:00 pm, for ART & EDUCATION IN MAINE, September 1 – October 31. In numerous locales across the United States, art and education go hand-in-hand. This trend is intensified on the coast of Maine, where a short summer season forces many artists to supplement their income through teaching or self-employment. Artists in this region are further motivated to teach because they love to share their passion for the arts and contribute to the larger community. The Gallery at Somes Sound represents many of these ‘artist-educators’ who share their gifts by creating as well as by teaching others. “Art and Education in Maine” celebrates a select group of these gifted individuals by highlighting their stories and work alongside the creations of those they instruct.
