Miniatures of Acadia National Park – Gallery Opening

"Shady Overlook" 6x8 oil
by Michael Chesley Johnson


As you may recall, I spent some time this past winter painting a series of 6x8 oils to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Acadia National Park.  I'm proud to announce that this series will be on exhibit and for sale at Argosy Gallery in Bar Harbor from July 1-30 this summer.  The opening starts at 6 pm. on Friday, July 1, in conjunction with the monthly First Friday Art Walk in Bar Harbor.

These paintings feature many of my favorite locations from within the Park.  Some of them you'd be hard put to find as many are off the beaten path.  I'm very happy to have the opportunity to share them with you in this exhibit.

The show is announced on the Acadia Centennial site: http://www.acadiacentennial2016.org/our-events/miniatures-for-the-centennial/
