First I have three paintings in Picturing Penobscot Bay, curated by Carl Little, at the Penobscot Marine Museum in Searsport, Maine. The show opens on June 2nd, and will be up for the summer/fall season. Wonderful painters from all over the bay are in this exhibit, including Brita Holmquist, Jill Hoy, Anina Porter Fuller, Colin Page, Scott Moore, and many others.
Then, two of my paintings are in the Monson Arts Gallery for their exhibit The Art of Monson, for the summer season. The show runs May 23rd - October 31st and was also curated by the omniscient art-angel Carl Little. More great art to be seen in this show, including work by Roberta Weaver Jarvis, Jemma Gascoine, Ed Hoovler, Milton Christianson, Alan Bray, Todd Watts, and more.
Also, two paintings were selected by painter/curator/professor extraordinaire Breehan James for an exhibit called Summer Breeze at the Chocolate Church Arts Center in Bath, Maine. The show is up from June 10th - July 30th.
And, last week I delivered 37 paintings to Landing Gallery in Rockland for my upcoming solo show in June, Portraits of Place, which runs June 2nd to June 26th. Bruce and Roberta at Landing Gallery will have some of my work up all summer. Rockland has become an art destination, and I'm fortunate to have another season there with these wonderful gallerists.
Littlefield Gallery is also carrying my work for the summer and fall, and the paintings of mine they now have on hand are viewable on their artist page for me, at their website. Jane and Kelly Littlefield are looking forward to a busy summer at the gallery.
A last note, before I sign off and go paint for the afternoon: the not-enough-superlatives-to-describe-him Carl Little has written about my memoir Autobiography of an Island in the June 2022 issue of The Working Waterfront, published by the Island Institute. Page 23. Thank you, Carl.
Below is a painting from my solo show at Landing Gallery. Thanks for reading, and for looking at my work. I appreciate your continued interest and support, always. Love from here.
