“The Floral Muse: Watercolors and Asian Brush Paintings by Jean Kigel” will be on exhibit at Tidemark Gallery in Waldoboro from May 8 – June 1, with an opening reception 5-7 p.m. Saturday, May 11, that is free and open to the public. For Jean Kigel, both an artist and a perennial gardener, flowers are her favorite muse. This show features a variety of field and still-life florals – some small, some oversize. She draws her inspiration largely from the shapes and shades of flowers she has inherited and from those of local plant sales. For more information visit tidemarkgallery.com.
