Philippe Guillerm at Philippe Guillerm Gallery

“Art is Fun”, a exhibition of works by international artist Philippe Guillerm, opens with an artist’s reception Saturday, June 9th, from 4 to 7pm.

Philippe Guillerm presents a unique series of Paintings and Sculptures from his travels to the Bahamas and the Caribbean Islands. This year’s Collection will be fun, eclectic and whimsical for Waldoboro’s first ArtWalk of the 2018.

Born in Paris, France, Philippe Guillerm began working with design in a early age and the local environment had an enormous and lasting influence on his drawings giving him contemporary forms he continues to use today on his tree dimensional works. The artist actually went to school for engineering, following his father’s vocation. He grew up surrounded by art, and his training, along with helping his father build furniture and boats, prepared him to compose. Philippe’s family is originally from Brittany, or “ Land of the Sea”, where the people traditionally worked as sailors or fishermen .With his heritage and a life time of summer sailing behind him, adolescent Guillerm left France for Spain and Morocco. His travels eventually led to French Guyana, where he met wife and wood, Philippe found the beauty of each undeniable, and he left for Tahiti two years later as a husband and sculptor.

“WHAT’S UP THERE Attic Window Series”, a exhibition of works by Waldoboro artist Jean Kigel, opens with an artist’s reception Saturday, September 9th, from 4 to 7pm.

Jean Kigel presents a unique series of oils and watercolors of attic windows from Mid-coast Maine. “There is something romantic about an attic”.In Kigel’s paintings the viewer is invited to take a virtual look from the street into attic windows to imagine the story within.
Nigel travels Mid-coast Maine towns, seeking unusually shipped attic windows, in the form of crescent moons, polygons, or ornately arranged and decorated multi-panes.

Philippe Guillerm Gallery proudly presents Jean Kigel and Philippe Guillerm’s new collection of sculptures and joins with Tidemark Gallery, Heywood Gallery and a local Collective Art Group for Waldoboro’s “Second Saturday ArtWalks.” For more information call 207-701-9085 or visit www.guillermsculptures.com

Jean Kigel’s 19th Annual Eastern Views: Geometric Realism+Attic Windows

Attic-Window-Series-Friendship-From-Wallaces-to-the-Wharfs-oil-18x22fJean-Kigel

Jean Kigel, Attic Window Series Friendship From Wallaces to the Wharfs oil 18×22

New paintings by Jean Kigel are featured at a museum-quality retro 1950’s setting, the Brick House Gallery, 176 Winslow Mills Road, Waldoboro from August 11th to 13th.  The reception  is on Friday August 11th from 5-7pm.
Celebrating its 19th season, Kigel’s Annual Eastern Views is a synthesis of motifs from Maine and Asia. Continuing her new geometric-realism series, she manipulates visual perceptions, creating a dichotomy of the real and the unreal.  Her seascapes capture jagged patterns of the luminous, shifting light and reflective waters of Maine.  Several muses – including Clary Hill and sea creatures – appear again and again, testament to their emotional power for the artist.  Featured this year is “Muscongus”, depicting the Atlantic in vibrant tones of blues, which she observed while kayaking near her studio.
In addition, Kigel will exhibit her growing attic windows series. These whimsical paintings depict colorful clusters of roof tops of an by-gone, architectural style in Mid-coast towns.   “When I paint this series, I always delight and surprise myself, reshaping forms, reinterpreting colors, and even inserting magical elements like fish into the skies.”
As usual, Kigel’s show is punctuated with paintings of garden perennials; her Asian brush techniques lending a sense of “exotica” to the familiar.
An award-winning member of the Sumi-e Society of America and the Union of Maine Visual Artists, Kigel’s work is exhibited in galleries in Maine, Massachusetts, NY City, and Vermont.    For more information, preview this exhibit at www.jeankigel.com or call 975-3262.

Philippe Guillerm Gallery opens “From Our Sea”

Philippe-Guillerm

 

Philippe Guillerm Gallery in Waldoboro will have this month’s vernissage on August 12th from 4-7 pm with the unveiling of Philippe Guillerm collection of inks on paper “From Our Sea”

“From Our Sea” is a powerful vision on the wonderful world of traveling and discovering the marvelous ocean. Philippe has sailed the oceans since he was 20 and since then, the oceans have captivated him to a quest of preservation.

Philippe Guillerm is known for his violins and cellos carved from found driftwood and mixed with real music instruments, which convey not only physical strength and beauty but also individuality, intelligence, and grace. Lesser known are his paintings and drawings that further express his artistic involvement with the sea world. This exhibition brings together a series of ink drawings and driftwood sculptures  that will captivate your imagination and define the concept of preserving our waters.

Philippe Guillerm Gallery opens “Animals & Humans”

Courtesy of Samuel Morgan

On Saturday, July 8th from 4 – 7 pm the Philippe Guillerm Gallery, 882 Main St., Waldoboro participates in ArtWalk Waldoboro with the opening of the exhibition “Animals & Humans”

A very special exhibit featuring works by both Samuel Morgan and Philippe Guillerm. Samuel is a well-known artist whose animals include those of many threatened and endangered species such as the Polar Bear, the Chimpanzee and the Giraffe. Philippe Guillerm’s body of work is a mesmerizing assemblage of human curves and feelings, from the rough driftwood to the smooth curved surface his musical instruments flow from Animal to Human.

The most important statement about Samuel Morgan is that he loves colors. Color is a common thread in his paintings as well as his life. From New England, although he has traveled extensively and lived in various places on the East coast, he currently makes his home in coastal Maine.

Artist Philippe Guillerm has brought the violin to life. Although these musical instruments can be described as lively, it is more often than not the music that they produce that is so. Instead of focusing on the music, Philippe Guillerm focuses on their physical form.

Fall Cornfield, watercolor by Julian Sacks

It was a wonderful day when Julian joined our little gallery and it was a terrible day when we lost him. But he left us with such wonderful gifts; his wisdom and warm friendship, corny jokes, a special recipe for pickled herring and bright landscape paintings of the many places he loved. Where ever he went, what ever the season or time of day, he painted.

Tidemark is deeply honored to present a collection of Julian’s vibrant watercolors depicting the Four Seasons in Maine. The show will be hung Wednesday, September 7, through Saturday, October 1. For more information contact  (207) 832-5109 or visit www.tidemarkgallery.com

Philippe Guillerm Gallery Shines a Spotlight on the “Views from Over and Under”

20160715_092055

Philippe Guillerm and Samuel Morgan will show their latest collection of breathtaking Views from Over and Under. An amazing collection of under water, sky and creatures of the blue world.

Philippe Guillerm a native of Paris, France is a well acclaim international artist who has a very kind view of his moments under water. Been an avid diver during his winter sailings, Philippe express on his paintings the notion of peace and silence that we all dream of and take you to an unbelievable calm word. 

Samuel Morgan who won’t be nailed down to a place of birth and lives in Maine for now will mesmerize you with his own view of the creatures from Over and Under. Samuel Morgan comes to painting later in life, as a retiree. Although painting could seem a huge departure from his prior career as landscaping, Samuel feels the common thread is his love of colors! “Choosing colors for the image on a canvas is not so different from creating a visually pleasing garden” he says.

Philippe Guillerm Gallery proudly presents Samuel Morgan and Philippe Guillerm and joins with Tidemark Gallery and Heywood Gallery for Waldoboro’s “Second Saturday ArtWalks.”Please join us at the Opening Night on Saturday, August 13, from 4pm to 7pm.

Philippe Guillerm Gallery is a contemporary art gallery providing opportunities for involvement, exposure and action in our community and culture through art.

JEAN KIGEL: 18TH ANNUAL EASTERN VIEWS: Watercolors, Oils, Asian brush Paintings

Thoroughfare, oil on panel, Jean Kigel, 12×16

View Jean Kigel’s new paintings at the mid-century modern Brick House Gallery, 176 Winslow Mills Road, Waldoboro from August 12th to 14th.  Reception Friday August 12th from 5-7.

 Now in its 18th season, Jean Kigel’s Annual Eastern Views combines motifs from Asian and Maine.  This year she presents an unexpectedly broader vision, depicted in a style she calls geometric-realism.  These paintings include slices of the sea  and land.  Featured this year isThoroughfare in which light, in the sky and on the water, forms polyhedric shapes, providing a sailboat passage offshore.

 Currently Kigel’s studio practice revolves around a whimsical series of attic windows from Rockland, Warren, and Waldoboro.  In these, roof peaks dance in colorful shapes against the sky. I look for interesting shapes to give feeling to the painting.  Then I work with the color to create harmony and mood.”

 As usual, this  show also presents a blend of more realistic paintings using  watercolor and Asian brush techniques.  “Flowers are favorites.  And almost any subject, from kitchen artifacts to insects,  captures my attention. Applying Asian brush, Kigel brings a sense of “exotica” to the familiar.

Philippe Guillerm Gallery is pleased to announce its first opening of the season Saturday June 11th , from 4:00 to 7:00pm with an Artist Reception and exhibition of works by Jim Root.

Jim was born and raised in Indianapolis, IN living on the White River for much of his childhood. Between canoeing and boating he also began painting and drawing at an early age.

The exhibition will include as yet unseen paintings from Jim Root and sculptures from Philippe Guillerm from the 2016 collection as part of the ArtWalk Waldoboro.
