(Portland, ME) Richard Boyd Art Gallery opens an exhibition of American landscape paintings on Wednesday, May 2 at 10:00 a.m. with a meet the artist reception to follow on the 5th.

Visual arts depicting landscapes have been around for centuries and remain one of the most collected. Whether created en plein air to capture the natural light and color in the area or in a studio setting, using a sketch or photograph as a reference, each work represents the artist’s vision of that place in time.

Representational landscape paintings can depict the artist’s interpretation of a specific scene or a detailed panoramic rendering of a landscape before them. Interest in specific genres of art change over time, but visual arts depicting landscapes continue to flourish as artists create works that document areas untouched by modernization.

The exhibit features a selection of original paintings in a variety of mediums and includes new work by Austin Stilphen – oil and Julianne Garvey – watercolor; and works by Jane Herbert – acrylic and Patricia Chandler – oil, cold wax and mixed media.

You’re invited to meet Patricia Chandler at a reception at Richard Boyd Art Gallery Saturday, May 5th between the hours of 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. when she will be available to discuss her work. Richard Boyd Art Gallery is located on Peaks Island at the corner of Island Avenue and Epps Street.

‘A Walk in the Woods: American Landscapes’ is on view free of charge between the hours or 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. daily through May 30, 2018.
