Gleason Fine Art opens “Philip Frey: New Paintings.”

“Birds Eye View” by Philip Frey
Gleason Fine Art in Boothbay Harbor opens the gallery’s fall 2012 season with “Philip Frey: New Paintings.”  The gallery is hosting a reception from 5- 7 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 8. Frey, a Maine native, creates lively, expressive paintings that reflect his delight in the landscape.
Frey is a master at using bold color to capture the sense of his subject. An admirer of the French Fauves, the 19th-century artists noted for their use of bright color, Frey says of his art: “I’m an artist who tries to joyfully express the surroundings I love through color and a sense of place.” The show will be on display through Saturday, Oct. 13.
