    The Essence of Maine

    Littlefield Gallery in Winter Harbor, presents its second show of the season featuring stone sculptor Mark Herrington, wood sculptor Dan Miller, and land and seascape painter Barbara J. Zucker. These three artists are among several who have been with the gallery since it opened ten years ago.
    Mark is a lifelong student of the creative process, and loves introducing new artists to granite sculpting as much as he loves practicing his own work. He is a self-taught stone artist: He has been a guest lecture at the University of Maine in Orono, being the first artist-in-residence in the Littlefield Gallery Artist-in-Residence program. The sculpture he created, “Tec.ton.ic,” is installed on the UMaine campus. A second sculpture, “Inanna,” is installed at the Buchanan Alumni Foundation.
    Mark has had many group and solo shows, and his public sculptures are installed permanently in diverse locations, including the International Sculpture Trail that links Schoodic’s symposium with Saint John, N.B.’s. “It might surprise people to know that I began my artistic life making guitars,” says Mark. As a granite sculptor, everything I work with is a gift of geological time.”
    Dan Miller has been coming to Corea,Maine, for the past 55 years. Celebrating his 90th birthday this summer, he continues to teach at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, one of the oldest and most prestigious schools in the country. His daily Corea routine is doing his woodblock prints in the morning, eating lunch, and, as he puts it, “works the other side of his brain creating sculpture with wood.” He refers to his prints as his drawings that are representational:taking from the outside in. His sculpture is abstract,working from the inside out. He loves the physical aspect of holding the wood in his hands instead of “distancing” himself with a paint brush. As an administrator, he has fulfilled the duties of Dean of Faculty, Acting Dean of the School, Chairman of the Painting Department, and, since 1998, Chair of the MFA Program. He has had 71 one-person exhibitions involving printmaking and sculpture. His work has has received numerous awards and is in private and public collections around the country.
    Barbara J. Zucker paints contemporary landscapes in acrylic on canvas and paper. She lives and works in a lovely, wooded area in Pennsylvania and spends summers in Corea, Maine. She formerly taught painting and drawing at Ursinus College in Collegeville, PA, was Gallery Director at ViewPoint LLC Arts and Events House in Lederach, PA and currently coordinates the Gallery at the Community Music School in Trappe, PA. She is President Emerita of Philadelphia/Tri State Artists Equity and has been Exhibition Chair of that organization for the past sixteen years. Her paintings are in the permanent collections of The Berman Museum of Art at Ursinus College, The Reading Public Museum, Woodmere Art Museum, Rosemont College, and numerous other public and private collections in Pennsylvania and elsewhere. She is listed in Marquis Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who of American Women. Her most recent solo shows were at the Eisenhower Theater Gallery at West Point, NY, the Montgomery County Community College West Campus Gallery in Pottstown, PA and the Community Music School.
    A forty-year retrospective of Barbara’s paintings was exhibited at the Berman Museum of Art at Ursinus College in Collegeville, PA.
