Richard Boyd Art Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of ‘Water 2014’ a solo exhibition of paintings by Portland artist Jeanne O’Toole Hayman on Tuesday, July 1 at 10:00 am. Jeanne finds the natural beauty of the rugged coast and waterways of Maine to be a never-ending source of inspiration. For Hayman’s current body of work in her words, “the movement and flow of water, our most precious resource is at the center of this series of paintings. The mood of these canvases changes the pace of each piece. The ebb and flow of the tides. The wind ruffled surface. The surge and roar of the swells on the rocks, works well with the gestural style of my painting.” The exhibit is on view free to the public from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm daily through July 31, 2014. Jeanne will be at a reception on Saturday, July 5 from 12:00 noon to 3:00 pm at Richard Boyd Art Gallery, where she will be available to discuss her recent series of paintings. The gallery is located on Peaks Island. For more information call 712 -1097.
