– September 2016 – Felicity Sidwell: A Solo Exhibition of Paintings in Oil
Felicity Sidwell ~ “Fall Marsh Low Tide” ~ Oil on Canvas 12″ x 9″
Many of Felicity Sidwell’s paintings start en plein air inspired by her perception of nature and the land around her. Sidwell says, “I grew up in rural England and spent summers sailing and playing on England’s coast. Having lived and painted in Connecticut for over 35 years the move to Maine in 2007 brought an immediate strong connection with this wild rocky coastline tempered by sandy coves and salt marshes. I paint outside as much as possible to capture and express in paint the fleeting colors of land and sky that are so dependent on the atmospheric conditions of the day and the season of the year.” Felicity’s solo exhibition of paintings opens September 1, at 10 a.m. and is on view free of charge to the public between the hours of 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. daily through September 29, 2016. There is no opening reception for this exhibit.
