It’s Summer in Maine!

Join us as we revel in the dynamic colors of the seas and skies. Artists Paul Brahms, Christina Davis, Anastasia Gatto, and Ryan Kohler each bring their own vision to showcasing the coast of Maine. Brahms is known for his masterful understanding of light and water. His new works push deeper into movement and gesture, capturing the visceral experience of the tides. Davis shows off dramatic skies that seem to glow on their own. Gatto continues to push the possibilities of encaustic painting. Her seascapes contain layers of blues and greens that undulate with the light, echoing the ocean itself. And gallery newcomer Ryan Kohler brings a sophistication to playful mixed media pieces. Using cutouts from maps, magazines, posters, and more, Kohler paints and constructs images that exist somewhere between reality, imagination, and memory.

Opening Reception Friday June 28th, 5-7:30pm.
