Archipelago shows “Alison Hill: Castaways”


Archipelago welcomes Alison Hill! The public is also invited to see her latest work “Castaways,”  and for wine and goodies and meet Alison Hill at a reception for the artist Friday, May 1st from 5 – 8 p.m. in the Gallery, at 386 Main Street, Rockland. The online gallery can be seen at

Alison shares thoughts about her work: “Painting has become my way of moving through this world, responding to and expressing what I see and feel. It is my interpretation, using color, stroke, and line, to evoke the mood I am receiving, whether it is a landscape, a person, or a still life, I want to recreate what I am receiving.

Through some fortunate circumstances, I am now living on Monhegan island, Maine. In the summer I run a studio  gallery, and off season I spend painting, traveling, doing portraits, and other art related endeavors. Monhegan offers endless inspiration, no matter what the season, and I feel very fortunate to call this home.”

Alison has painted with Caleb Stone, Don Stone, Guy Corriera, Dean Keller, Bonald Sher, Mary Beth Mackenzie, Dan Gheno, Jack Farragasso, Joseph Peller, Sharon Sprung.

Alison’s paintings are inspired by the people and landscapes of Monhegan, where she lives year round. The exhibit runs through Friday, June 19. For more information on this show, please contact Lisa Mossel Vietze, Archipelago Store and Gallery Director, at 207-596-0701.
