New Exhibit - Opening Reception

Fabric Design by Trina Stephenson

I thought I'd remind everyone one last time!  Our joint show is open, and the artists' reception is this evening (Saturday, August 17) from 5-7 pm Eastern Time.  See you there!


A new exhibit, "The Geometry of Nature: 2 Visions," opens at the Mulholland Market Gallery at McCurdy's Smokehouse Complex, 50 Water Street, Lubec, Maine.  Exhibiting will be photographer and fabric artist Trina Stephenson and landscape painter Michael Chesley Johnson with new work.  The exhibit runs August 14-September 3 with an opening on Saturday, August 17th, from 5-7PM where you can meet the artists.

Trina takes photographs of the natural landscape to create kaleidoscopic images which she then prints on paper, metal or fabric.  In her fabric art, she brings together her interest in color, design and some of the techniques of quiltmaking.  Michael is an internationally-known painter and teacher working in oil and pastel in the plein air tradition.  Come and see some of his new "natural diptych" paintings.  For more on the artists, visit and

Also, Michael will also be teaching a plein air painting workshop based in Lubec, Maine, September 10-13.  Ordinarily, he teaches on Campobello Island in New Brunswick, Canada, but for US students without passports, he has scheduled this special workshop.  Visit for details.
