- June 2016 – Jane Herbert: A Solo Exhibition of Paintings in Acrylic

Although most of Jane’s paintings are created en plein air, the large canvases are created in her Damariscotta studio using photographs and paintings done on location as references. When asked about her education Jane says, “I have an unstructured approach to art and life that has served me well. Instead of earning a formal education I gathered my brushes and toured Europe in a micro-bus, painting and learning as I went. Life has been a creative, do-it-yourself adventure for me. Through life I have embraced my creativity, and painting specifically. I love painting and I love sharing my work.”  Jane’s solo exhibit of paintings opens on June 1, at 10:00 a.m. and is on view free of charge to the public between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. daily through June 29, 2016.

- September 2016 – Felicity Sidwell: A Solo Exhibition of Paintings in Oil

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 10:00 a.m. and is on view free of charge to the public between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. daily through September 29, 2016.
