Haynes Galleries in Thomaston invites the public to an opening reception 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6 for “Roger Dale Brown: Maine Impressions.” This end-of-summer show runs through Sept. 28 and features plein air paintings completed this summer by Brown during his stay in Maine and a few studio pieces. Brown will give a gallery talk and possibly a demonstration 1 – 2 p.m. Sat. Sept. 7. “There’s a feeling about places that have been lived in for a long time,” Brown says. “Certain places feel like they have an old soul. They’re artistic and more painterly.” For more information visit haynesgalleries.com.
