If you missed East Boothbay artist Andrea Peters’ “Winter Colors” show at CMBG’s “Gardens Aglow,” you can see the paintings at Gleason Fine Art in Boothbay Harbor through Wednesday, March 2.
“Whatever you call it, energy, spirit or soul, grasping that is my primary goal in painting, which then becomes a personal journey for my life,” says Peters. “When I paint all else ceases to exist. I am caught in a space and time that has no measure or proof other than the visual painting result. My painting transcends the now of the physical and transports me to another plane.
There is only pure joy. It is comfortable yet unpredictable, exciting yet peaceful, a place to lose myself and yet find myself. This experience doesn’t happen when I plan for it, but rather when I least expect it, I’m submerged in it. I like the element of unpredictability and let each painting be guided by itself and that particular period in time, to let it be whatever it will be, accepting it only for what it is..a moment in my life.”
Gleason Fine Art, located at 31 Townsend Avenue, is open year round. Winter hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 10 AM to 4 PM.
