New Studio Gallery Opening!

I know, I know, I promised to start posting more plein air work here, but Trina and I have been busy with our project in Lubec, Maine.  Trina has spent the last eight weeks renovating the building space, and this week we are finally beginning to hang work.  So, put next Wednesday, July 24, on your schedule.  Artists Retreat Studios & Gallery will open for the first time that day from 1-5 pm Eastern Time.  The gallery is at 45 Washington Street, just a couple of streets off the waterfront and a short walk from the international bridge.  Normal hours for the gallery will be afternoons from Tuesday through Friday.

If you've been following the blog for Artists Retreat Studios & Gallery, you'll know that it will feature not only my landscapes but also Trina's kaleidoscopic designs and images.  Additionally, we'll be renting out space in the building to other artists for retreats and also give them an opportunity to hang their own work.  We think it's a great concept for Lubec, which increasingly is becoming an art town.

Here are some websites to know about:

Finally, here are a few interior shots of the gallery space as it now stands.  There are many, many more walls and lots more work than is pictured here.  It's not completely hung, as Trina still needs to add her work plus I'll have some more.

Finally, the 2013 Castine Plein Air Festival is coming up very soon.  The event is Saturday, July 27th, which is a little less than two weeks away.  I'm looking forward to painting in that beautiful, quiet harbor town.
