Don’t miss a visit to the Pemaquid Art Gallery in Lighthouse Park in New Harbor this season. A perfect destination for summer visitors and residents alike, the 2015 gallery exhibition includes the work of some of the area’s finest artists, both eclectic and traditional.
One of the most recent artists to exhibit at the venerable gallery is Marnie Sinclair, an eclectic artist who has been “making art” since early childhood, when she drew animals. She went on to become an art major in college, attending two well-known art schools, the Boston Museum of Fine Arts School and the San Francisco Art School
Sinclair, who endorses the artistic advice that “there are no mistakes,” is stimulated by the world around her, including current issues such as climate change. As an environmental activist, she has created a series of sculptures that she uses in her art talk to raise awareness about the state of the planet.
Also at the Pemaquid Art Gallery is the work of Pande Stevens, now in his 10th year with the Gallery. During the 1940’s, he pursued his painting at the Norfolk House Community Center in Roxbury. Later he was educated at the Vesper George School of Art, no longer operating, but for many years well known in the Boston art community. Many artists from the school earned their living as commercial artists, as did Stevens, who designed covers for music publishers. He also worked with portrait painter Alfred Gallipoli, as an apprentice in the art of marbling, at the Bullfinch Hotel in Boston.
Stevens works in tempera, watercolor and oil. His current works include coastal scenes in Lubec and on the clamming flats of Waldoboro.
