The Turtle Gallery opens four new shows

“What If They Had Lived” by Barbara Putnam

“What If They Had Lived” by Barbara Putnam

In “Digital Montage”Jeffery Becton borrows elements from painting, drawing, photomontage and scanned objects to produce original images. Becton received an MFA in graphic design from the Yale School of Art in 1976 and moved to Maine in 1978. Peter Kemble has had a lifelong interest in art, architecture, and design. “Digital Prints” uses color, form, transparency, and three-dimensionality in drawings and prints which have elements of play, surprise, and mystery. Barbara Putnam’s prints and quilts have been shown internationally. “44°and 80° North” references her recent travel to Svalbard for the Arctic Circle Residency aboard a tall ship, sailing 800 miles north of the Arctic Circle. Also opening is “Regional Wood & Metal Work” featuring the work of Peter Bennett, Eben Foss, Chris Joyce, Joseph Tracy, and Doug Wilson. The Turtle Gallery is located at 61 North Deer Isle Road. All shows will be on display through Saturday, August 16.
