New Harbor Artists Farrell and Loznicka are exhibiting at Pemaquid Art Gallery. Sometimes a watercolorist but primarily a painter in oils, Marlene Loznicka is a highly regarded mid-coast artist. Her long list of national and regional awards includes a recent, rare one-person exhibition on Monhegan Island, where she now exhibits at the Lupine Gallery. Monhegan continues to inspire her body of work. In a style which she describes as ‘loose realism,’ she captures small moment in time on a small island in a big, fresh and joyful way. Her landscapes stay with the viewer, as they are powered by masterful use of light and color.
Love of color and a fascination with the natural world are the forces that power Peggy Farrell’s art. Her watercolors of coastal Maine life depict boats and harbors, homes and gardens, farms and woods, barns and sheds, and, more recently, the wild beauty of Monhegan. Painting in a realistic style, she hopes to stir in the viewer “delight, remembrance, a cherished moment.”
