Starting June 2nd, The Local Buzz Coffee Shop & Cafe at 327 Ocean House Road in Cape Elizabeth will feature the art exhibit “Faces” by artist Russ Lamer. The exhibit will run through the month of June. The Local Buzz will open the exhibit with an artist’s reception on June 2nd from 5 to 7 p.m. The public is welcome.

Russ is an artist who lives in South Portland, Maine and Scottsdale, Arizona. He enjoys digital finger painting on his iPad, but his primary focus is painting the faces of social issues on canvas with acrylic paints. Early on he used his creativity and love for art while working in numerous advertising agencies as a writer and creative director. He also did cartooning for fun and support of published short stories. The artist that influenced him the most is Erik Wahl, a graffiti style portrait artist and author of the books UNthink, and The Spark and The Grind. “I find his style exhilarating, fun, and his imagination boundless” says Russ. Russ’ philosophy about art is simple…explore your passion for art, let your imagination guide you, and paint what you feel. “I want to be known as the artist who paints the faces of social issues, and the faces from stories that capture my imagination then let individuals draw their own conclusions.” Come to The Local Buzz in Cape Elizabeth the month of June and see his many “Faces” on exhibit.
