The Deer Isle Artists Association is very pleased to announce Winter Art activities in February at the Gallery on 15  Main Street in Deer Isle Village.

Upcoming in February, Robert Starkey is artist of the month in Window Views. He states, “my vision for Window Views is an exhibit called “Conversations,” oil paintings inspired from the local land and seacapes of Schoodic, the Eggemoggin Reach and Deer Isle in large format 4′ X 4′ to small 12″ X 12″. During the month of February, the artist plans to develop new pieces, working most mornings in the DIAA Gallery.

Paul Trowbridge will offer his next workshop at DIAA in February. The workshop will support students to recognize elements of design which give strength to works through abstraction. Using participation own subject matter as a starting point, students find appropriate design elements, exaggerate and play with. Participants will move beyond the same old approach to bold discovery and experimentation.

A five week workshop will be offered. Saturdays, a.m. to noon. February 27 to March 26. $100 to be paid to the instructor at first class. Participants bring material with which they are comportable to make images in. For more information please email; cbsimonds@gmail.com or call Cynthia Bourque Simonds, 207-359-6596.
