Contemporary realism is the focus of the current online exhibit presented by Wiscasset’s Maine Art Gallery. The show, originally scheduled to be seen in the gallery at this time, has been rescheduled to 2021 due to the coronavirus. However, one can get a preview of the full show by visiting www.maineartgallerywiscasset.org. The images will be available for viewing until Oct. 5.
“I hope the viewers will get as much enjoyment from the show as I did in selecting the artists,” said Elaine Pew, curator of the exhibit. “Each of them presents their vision of reality in their own unique way.”
Carolyn Gabbe paints in the tradition of the Old Masters of the Renaissance.
Melissa Greene expresses a poetic vision of the ways that women and animals interact with the natural world on her exquisite pots.
Winslow Meyers is very precise in defining his space with a lyrical, soothing palette.
Mat O’Donnell’s work has an edge to it. He asks the viewer to complete the story on his canvas.
Daphne Pulsifer uses classical sculptural techniques to render her bronzes of figures and animals.
Douglas Smith celebrates life through paintings that convey a sense of time and place and quality of light.
Susan Tobey White presents a series of paintings that tell the story of lobster women at work.
