Turtle Gallery final opening reception for the season

“Dutch Weir” by Alix Bacon

Turtle Gallery in Deer Isle invites the public to the final opening reception for the season 2 – 6 p.m. Sunday, Aug 25. It’s a chance to meet painters George Bayliss, Alix Bacon, Laura Hart, and printmakers showing their new work.  In describing her work, Alix Bacon says “I use the visual facts of a scene as a point of departure, exaggerating this color or eliminating that object in order to distill what is most important and to convey a sense of place. I’d like to think that the experience of moving up to a painting and exploring the beauty of its glazes or a brushstroke can be akin to the beauty felt when sitting on a rock with the wind in one’s face and looking down from the vista to explore a blade of grass.” The show will run through mid October.
