Boothbay Region Art Foundation’s final members show for the summer of 2021 is providing a seasonal theme with fall colors predominating, along with the “perennial” last blooms of summer. As always, the foundation’s collection includes an eclectic variety of styles, mediums and subject matter.
In addition to the regular members’ show, BRAF is sponsoring two special solo-artists with shows in the upstairs area. In Gallery One, Waterville artist Barbara Chase is presenting her “Maine-ly Inspired” collection of acrylics. Subjects include barnyard critters, coastal scenery, birds and bees, and landscapes and flowers.
In the upstairs Harbor-View Room, Diana Washburn, of Falmouth, has installed a body of work featuring pastels, paints and mixed media. Landscapes are her favorite subject because scenery is never the same twice — each painting becomes a a frozen moment in time. Most of all, Washburn wants to share her love of painting with others.
The current members exhibit and the upstairs solo shows will continue through Oct. 11.
The gallery is located in downtown Boothbay Harbor at 1 Townsend Ave. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
