Camden artist Joan Losee will be the Guest Artist this May at Local Color Gallery in Belfast. Her work the past two years has been focused on the farms and landscapes of inland Maine. The experience of visiting these locations and putting them into oil paintings has broadened her knowledge of Maine and beauty found in unexpected places.
Most of Losee’s work is about ordinary subjects but her approach brings out extraordinary emotion and presence showing that they’re not ordinary after all. She has over 40 years of training in watercolor, egg tempera, pastel, and oil. Her belief is you have to master the rules before you can break them. Keeping that in mind she continues to take workshops while constantly striving to increase her proficiency and maintain a freshness in her artistic expression.
Local Color Gallery is located at 135 High Street in Belfast, open Tuesday-Sunday 11-4, for details visit localcolorgallerymaine.com.
