Littlefield Gallery Presents “Ben Lincoln: Interface”


Littlefield Gallery in Winter Harbor presents, Ben Lincoln: Interface.

August 19 – September 15   Artist’s Reception Saturday, August 31, 4-6 pm

My paintings feature a variety of subjects in styles that range from realism to abstraction to my own brand of expressive surrealism, with approaches that prioritize both the aesthetic and the allegorical. Consistent throughout all of my work is love of craft, dedication to material and a desire to connect visual perception with emotion. 

Ben Lincoln was born in Anchorage, Alaska, and grew up on the coast of Maine. He earned a diploma from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston where he studied painting in the studio Domingo Barreres. He continued his studies at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University with a year of independent study as part of the school’s Fifth Year Program. For that work, he was awarded a prestigious traveling fellowship and accompanying exhibition of work at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.



Embracing a variety of subject matter, from representation to abstraction, Lincoln’s work rests somewhere between the real and the imagined, but is always anchored in his devotion to the craft of painting .

In this new body of work for his solo show titled “Interface,” he considers the effects of the extension of mind and how he visualizes that in his art. One of the biggest single features of this extension is a change in the relationship between the internal self and the external world of objects.

Littlefield Gallery presents “Daniel Anselmi: Paper, Scissors, Paint”



Daniel Anselmi: Paper, Scissors, Paint
Littlefield Gallery, Winter Harbor
August 14 – September 10
Artist’s Reception Saturday, August 19, 4-6 pm

Daniel’s works on paper and canvas explore the use of paper as an ongoing dialogue between painting and collage. He uses artist-painted paper as one would handle a brush to elicit brushstrokes on canvas. Never using the new, he enjoys the felt quality of the discarded: blueprints, old ledgers, chart papers, and used canvas dropcloths are materials that offer an aesthetic conversation with his work. The paint he applies to these various materials, whether in large cut pieces or intimate fragments, and affix to already created surfaces, offers countless opportunities to express color, line, and form. Though sourced materials are not intended to be recognizable in these abstractions, sometimes surface traces remain that become a moment of discovery for the discriminating viewer.
