Greenhut Galleries in Portland presents “Ed Douglas: New Work” in a show that runs through May 31. Ed Douglas has devoted his life to painting. In a career that spans over fifty years, a well-respected now retired professor who taught at the Maine College of Art, he continues to strive for dynamism and unity in his work. Douglas explores ideas that remain integral to the way he approaches the act of painting. Though Ed was once quoted as saying “subjects are more excuses for paintings than they are dictates or even inspirations for paintings,” he clearly enjoys working with the human form.
