  • "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.

    Paintings by Anne Ireland '94 @ Maine College of Art, Charles C. Thomas Gallery

    Through June 4, Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm Maine College of Art alum Anne Ireland grew up on a saltwater farm in Maine, where she returns every summer. Ireland's work reveals the ongoing dialog she has with the Maine landscape. Reflecting a complicated and ardent relationship with color, Ireland strives to capture the emotion present in hayfields, stands of pine, and ever-changing skies. Her intent is to "transform the iconic into the newly discovered, transporting the viewer to a place that is at once familiar and foreign, a place that asks questions and demands answers, a place of infinite possibility." view event

  • 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).
