Reckoning with Nature: Andrew Winter at Monhegan Island

This summer’s art exhibition at the Monhegan Museum of Art and History is a retrospective of Andrew Winter’s Monhegan paintings. It will be on display from June 24th until September 30th. Andrew Winter was an acclaimed mid-twentieth century artist, born in Estonia, who sailed around the world before immigrating to the United States, establishing himself as a New York artist, and ultimately making Monhegan Island his year round home. Winter’s decision to live on Monhegan shaped his art in ways that distinguish him from the many artists of the summer art colony. He painted snow-covered vistas, rough winter seas, and fishermen at work hauling lobster traps.
