“Primavera: The Maine Fine Art Figure Exhibition” at Galerie Dufour in


Martha Lynne Allen, "Watched"

Galerie Dufour in downtown Belfast is proud to host “Primavera: The Maine Fine Art Figure Exhibition.”  The show features modern interpretations of the nude, the classic genre in art, by Maine artists.  Fine art nude drawings, photographs, paintings, and original prints will be featured in what promises to be a memorable exhibit.

Award winning Maine artists David Estey and Charles Laurier Dufour juried the entries and were impressed with the varied interpretations.  “When you leave it to the artists to interpret ‘the nude’ as they envision it rather than simply how commercial and social convention does,” explains Dufour, “then individual styles dictate the outcome and you end up with quite an impressive, varied, and interesting collection of works.”  Selected artwork for Primavera comes from artists ranging in age from 20 to 92 years and from around the pine tree state.

Galerie Dufour will host an opening reception for the public on Saturday, May 5, from 5 – 8 p.m.  Food for the adult reception on Cinco de Mayo will be provided by La Vida Mexican Restaurant of Belfast.  Awards for the show will be announced at approximately 6:30 p.m.  Tell your friends and don’t miss this show which kicks off Galerie Dufour’s 9th season in Belfast!

Primavera will be exhibited at Galerie Dufour until the end of May.  FMI, call 338 – 6448 or galeriedufour@gmail.com.
