Jean Kigel at Summer Island Studio

“The Dragon Sleeps,” by Jean Kigel

Summer Island Studio in Brunswick welcomes back watercolorist and Asian brush painter Jean Kigel for a Sept. show entitled The Dragon Sleeps. While the gallery has open hours every day of the week, the public is also welcome to visit on the evening of the Friday Art Walk on the evening of Sept. 14, when the gallery will be open until 8 p.m.

Kigel’s signature piece, The Dragon Sleeps, depicts the Great Wall at Badaling, China, winding through the autumn mist. Kigel’s other paintings follow the autumnal theme by depicting the American crow calling out the change of season, hummingbirds tasting the last of summer’s nectar, golden orchids fading into pools of aqua mist, and the sun setting over Maine islands. Award-winning artist Kigel specializes in watercolor and Asian brush painting and has been widely exhibited in museum, university and private galleries. For more information, call 207-373-1810.
