New Works and Opening Reception at R. Scott Baltz

 

R. Scott Baltz will be hosting his Summer Reception on Sunday July 21, 2019 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 third 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. Recent work takes a look back at ideas formulated some 20 years ago, though with new techniques in applying layers of paint. For additional information, please visit the website for a preview of work or call/text Scott at 207.266.3393. www.rscottbaltz.com The studio is also open Wednesday through Friday from noon to 5 pm, or by appointment. He is also represented by the Gallery at Somes Sound.

Gallery at Somes Sound Presents “Shapes Color and Composition: David Witbeck”

 

Gallery at Somes Sound in Somesville PRESENTS

SHAPES COLOR & COMPOSITION:  David Witbeck

July 3 – July 16

Having been a photographer for three decades, one of Witbeck’s greatest joys as a painter is being free from objective reality. He can put things in and leave things out and depict things the way they make him feel rather than the way they actually look. Witbeck loves to exaggerate and simplify shapes. He can bend, stretch, compress and twist the nominal subject matter to fit the confines of the canvas and to create an emotional response. Rather than thinking of the subject matter as a “picture” Witbeck tries to use it as a device to compose the surface of the canvas in an interesting way.

The Gallery at Somes Sound “Scott Baltz: The Past Shaping the Future”

Scott Baltz, “Ponds End”

 

The Gallery at Somes Sound will be having it’s first show from June 12 – 25 featuring “Scott Baltz: The Past Shaping the Future”

At the core of Scott Baltz’s work is an examination of the energy and movement within the landscape. His paintings evolve from intimate experiences, filtered by the passage of time, memory and imagination focusing on transition, simplified compositions and shapes. “The way I go about creating a painting has shifted, as it feels more a meditative process where the painting directs me, as opposed to the other way around. It is a journey with the past shaping the future.” Scott Baltz For the past several years Baltz has been working thematically on images revolving around transitional light. The challenges and joys of the creative process sustains his passion, artistic vision and well-being.

“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

“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
