Will Barnet: Women by the sea

through June 23, 2017

The gallery is pleased to present a focused exhibition of Will Barnet works on the theme “Women By The Sea.”  Among Barnet’s most identifiable and iconic images, the show is anchored by the 1973 painting Eos, which depicts a lone woman in silhouette looking out to sea.  The simplified forms and deep rich colors evoke both the tranquility of solitude and the mysteries of the human spirit.  Among the works on paper included is a large size watercolor Vigil (1979), in which three women stand atop a New England widow's walk looking out to sea.

Bernard Langlais: Selected Works

April 13 - June 23, 2017

The gallery is pleased to present a selection of Bernard Langlais works on paper, wooden sculpture and wall reliefs.  Known for his depictions of whimsical wild and domestic animals, Langlais often used the lion as a guise for self-portraits.  The show includes large lions (and tigers and bears) along side early abstract wood constructions from the 1950s that were first shown in New York at Leo Castelli before Langalis retreated to Maine.  Proceeds from the sale of these works from the artist’s estate benefit an Maine non-profit educational institution.
