  • "Frozen: The Art of Ice & Snow" @ Schoolhouse Gallery

    through June 30. . The exhibit FROZEN features large format photographs taken by John, Cynthia and Jonathan Orcutt of landscapes that are dominated by ice and snow. Although the freezing, sub-zero temperatures that have defined the Winter of 2014 in the High Peaks of Maine have made venturing outdoors difficult, the temperatures have also created magnificent sculptural landforms and poetic landscapes. This exhibit captures the stark but often gentle beauty found when water freezes. Photographic images in FROZEN feature mountains, trees, rivers, lakes, open meadows and waterfalls covered with the white brightness of ice and snow. Most images have been captured here in Maine's High Peaks region, many of them taken this Winter. view event

  • Robert Clark: Color Woodblock Prints @ Gleason Fine Art, Boothbay Harbor

    Through May 3. Gleason Fine Art is pleased to announce that the gallery has added color woodblock printer Robert Clark to its roster of artists. Well-known around Mount Desert Island as a builder of custom homes, Clark has developed his own unique approach to wood block print making. Clark's tools include the computer, digital camera, and laser engraver. Using artist's oil paint instead of printer's ink, Clark builds his images by inking and hand burnishing each block multiple times. This yields vibrant prints that have both depth and texture.Clark's prints are strongly influenced by the early 20th century print makers, especially Gustave Baumann.

  • Bob Goudreau: Scratchboard Art @ Just Us Chickens Gallery

    Through April 30. Goudreau is a resident of Rochester, New Hampshire and has enjoyed producing drawings and paintings throughout his life. In the fall of 2001 he was introduced to scratchboard art through a course at the University of New Hampshire. Scratchboard art is a relatively unknown art form and is gaining popularity. A scratchboard is a 2-dimentional subtractive medium that involves scratching literally thousands of marks through a darker outer layer to reveal varying amounts of the white inner layer just below the surface. Each scratch made produces a white mark representing light in the design. Finished scratchboard art pieces may be left black and white or the white marks can be painted with translucent inks, producing beautifully colored designs. Bob took an immediate liking to this art form because it combines drawing and painting while producing three-dimensional pieces and he feels that scratchboard art shows his creative expression the best. Bob's scratchboard piece "Perennial Asters" is featured in the scratchboard section of the book titled "Compendium of Drawing Techniques" by Donna Krizek, which was published in August 2012. Bob has been involved with Just Us Chickens since 2013 and is also a member of the International Society of Scratchboard Artists (ISSA) and the Great Bay Art Association (GBAA).

  • "Mansion as Muse: Contemporary Art at Victoria Mansion " @ Victoria Mansion

    Through May 21.The Mansion's Art Advisory Committee, composed of distinguished artists and museum professionals, invited three artists and one collaborative team to create works of art inspired by Victoria Mansion's incomparable interiors that are renowned for their original wall and ceiling paintings and furnishings from 1860. The participating artists are Mark Dion and Dana Sherwood, Andrew Mowbray, Justin Richel, and Amy Yoes. As explained by Committee member Denise Markonish, curator of MASSMoCA, "Victoria Mansion is a historical gem, which is why giving contemporary artists the opportunity to respond to its riches is a wholly unique opportunity. Given that the artists chosen all have deep connections to history and the decorative arts, it will be fascinating to see how they will intervene and reinterpret the objects and stories found within the Mansion. I have no doubt this exhibition will not only give visitors to Victoria Mansion the opportunity to see the space anew but will also provide these artists with much material for future works and ideas." The site-specific art works will be displayed throughout the Mansion rooms. A catalogue of the exhibition will be available for purchase. view event
