Courthouse Gallery Fine Art in Ellsworth is pleased to announce three upcoming solo exhibitions for “John Neville: Seafaring Tales,” “R Scott Baltz: Nature’s Majesty”, and “Alison Rector: Shared Quiet”. Also showing new work: Judy Belasco, Rosie Moore, Colin Page and Alan Vlach. The exhibiton will run June 25–July 20 with an artist’s reception from 5–7p.m. Wednesday, July 2. The event is free and open to the public. John Neville’s narrative oil paintings portray the seafaring life of bygone days and allude to the folklore of this iconic culture. His solitary fishermen are often shown pitted against monstrous waves retuning with their catch. R Scott Baltz uses oil paint to create an intimate sensation of a world untouched by humanity. Alison Rector is best know for her luminous painting of interiors and has been inspired by Maine’s public libraries, in particular the Carnegie libraries. By the early twentieth century, a Carnegie library was often the most imposing structure in hundreds of small American communities. Rector will give an Artist’s Talk at Courthouse Gallery on Wednesday July 9 at 6 p.m. For more information visit courthousegallery.com.
