Paul Brahms Opening Reception | Summer 2018 Maine Art Exhibition

Our summer show is in full swing down here on the Maine Wharf. Join us on Thursday, July 12th for the opening for our second highlighted artist, Paul Brahms, oil painter. Brahm’s work features loose brushwork often depicting the coast of Maine and the figures that inhabit it. In his own words ” I aspire to be like the bee who tells his co-workers where the flowers are or a filmmaker who illuminates the tension in a scene. I want my work to move, to have atmosphere, and to embody a searching, questioning state of being, but this requires meditation as much as agitation, and I straddle this polarity often, leaving a visual record of this struggle.”
