Gleason Fine Art William Irvine art talk + “Sean Beavers: Wood, Water, Stone, and Seed.”

“Notes on Strawberries” by Sean Beavers

Gleason Fine Art in Boothbay Harbor invites the public to a talk by Maine painter William Irvine 4 – 5:30 p.m. Thursday, August 15. Maine’s rugged coast suits Irvine’s sensibilities–sailboats, clouds, working boats, sailors, blue skies, tidy white houses peopled by figures in bright shirts—it is all material for Irvine’s paintings.

Gleason Fine Art also invites the public to an opening reception 5 – 7 p.m. Friday, August 23 for “Sean Beavers: Wood, Water, Stone, and Seed.” The show features oil on panel still lifes and landscapes by the York painter and runs through Saturday, September 14. For more information visit
