I say we just experienced the best October ever. It seems our weather is sliding ever so gracefully into early winter. Yes it was pretty chilly this morning, but quite still, and lovely as can be.
I hear lots of good stories. Here is one from Ann Scanlon at Sylvan Gallery in Wiscasset.
Meant to be. Lance Lee, the new proud owner of “Dreamboat Nocturne,” a painting of a Crotch Island Pinky by artist Neal Hughes, discovered it in Sylvan Gallery’s ad when he picked up the Maine Gallery + Studio Guide in a gallery in Rockland.
Lee started his boatbuilding apprenticeship program that helped disadvantaged youths almost a half century ago and he recognized the boat as “Watermark’, the first Hampton boat that was built in The Apprenticeshop that he founded in Bath, ME. He immediately contacted the gallery to see if the painting was still available. Luckily, Neal was bringing it for his and Crista Pisano‘s opening reception at Sylvan Gallery that coming week, and the two were reunited. The painting is now in its new home in Rockland, Maine. A very perfect reunion!
I delivered a lot of Gallery Guides up and down the coast in October and heard lots of wonderful reports. It is so reasuring to know the state of Maine art is on very solid footing despite the challenges of the pandemic. Hours may be curtailed here and there, and openings may be limited, but art is being sold and many galleries have had their best season yet.
