The Kelpie Gallery in South Thomaston will kick off its fall season with an exhibition titled “Maine Color.”. An Artists’ Reception on Friday, September 25 from 5 to 7 p.m. All are welcome.
Artists define the essence of Maine’s color in a variety of styles and mediums. Featured artists are: Jill Valliere, Kay Sullivan, Ann Sklar, Donald Vincent Rainville, Nancy Lovley, Pamela Hetherly, Julie Haskell, Sandra Leinonen-Dunn, Allen Bunker, John Bowdren, Sarah Barnard-Blitz and Susan Lewis Baines.
The imagery is largely based in the landscape of this beautiful state, but occasionally takes a more abstract turn. The color ranges from the intensity of sunrises and burning red fall blueberry fields, to the subtle and soft light through the trees in fog or clear skies reflected in glass smooth water. New outdoor sculptures by John Bowdren feature a series of large gilded leaves evoking the golden fall foliage that will soon be visible.
The Kelpie Gallery, located at 81 Elm Street (Rt.73), South Thomaston, will be open 10 am to 5 pm daily, Sunday and Wednesday by appointment/chance. For more information, visit www.thekelpiegallery.com
