Belfast painter David Estey and Lincolnville painter/sculptor Jack Silverio have repeat solo exhibits at Studio 53 with 20 recent paintings and 20 paintings and three sculptures, respectively.
An opening reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. July 2, and the show will remain on display through Aug. 1.
Estey’s works are improvisational abstract images in a variety of sizes done in acrylic on canvas, panels or paper mounted on panels. This is his third solo show at Studio 53. He is an award-winning native, with a BFA degree from Rhode Island School of Design as a participant in the Rome Honors Program, a MSA degree from George Washington University, and years of study at Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. He has exhibited widely in the Mid-Atlantic States, North Carolina and Maine. He has produced over 10,800 pieces of art, some of which are in private and public collections in 20 states and seven countries.
Silverio’s paintings and sculptures are a study in graduated proportions working with the Fibonacci series and the Golden Ratio. This is his second solo show at Studio 53. He also is a graduate of RISD and a participant in the Rome Honors Program. He was a practicing architect for 40 years and now devotes himself entirely to painting and sculpture. He has exhibited widely in universities and galleries throughout Maine. He is the author of three books about architecture and a new book called “Art with Fibonacci — Working with the Golden Ratio.”
The remainder of the three-story gallery will be filled with work by owners Heidi Seidelhuber and Terry Seaman and the other gallery artists.
