Art lovers and fans of plein air landscapes are in for a treat this summer at Haynes Galleries. Roger Dale Brown will give an artist talk and a live demonstration on Saturday August 2 from 10 a.m. to noon at Haynes Galleries in Thomaston. The event is in conjunction with his solo exhibition “Roger Dale Brown: Painting Maine,” which opens July 31 and runs until August 30. Both the artist talk and exhibition are free and open to the public. During his talk, Brown will recount stories from his numerous painting expeditions including a trip to Maine’s midcoast which will take place just a few days prior to the talk. He will also give a live outdoor demonstration, weather permitting, so guests can see and experience Brown’s award-winning plein air style in person. Brown will describe each step as he takes it, each brushstroke as he applies it.
