CAMDEN — Camden Falls Gallery presents “Camden - a Boater’s Paradise”, showcasing an array of house artists. The new exhibition will open on September 1, 2023.
As with many others, Camden Falls Gallery owner Howard Gallagher has a prolonged romance with Camden, Maine.
“Camden Falls Gallery is pleased to wrap up the summer season with a show highlighting the nautical and marine influence Camden has had on artists, mariners, and visitors alike throughout the years,” said the Gallery, in a news release. “Penobscot Bay is considered by many boaters and sailors to be one of the top five cruising areas in the world, and without a doubt Camden is the crowning jewel of the Bay.”
The show will present a collection of works by artists who have worked closely with the gallery to produce a very unique body of work.
“With scenes from the water, the mainland, and along the waterfront, these paintings are executed in such a way that the viewer cannot help but be drawn into them,” said the news release.
Artists featured in the show include Olena Babak, Poppy Balser, Beth Bathe, Jay Brooks, Ann Larsen, Kirk McBride, Jonathan McPhillips, George Van Hook, and Peter Yesis, and others. Their collective works capture scenes from the quiet pool at the bottom of the water falls at the head of Camden’s inner harbor, to the outlying edges of Schoodic Point to the north, and south to Port Clyde, Monhegan and beyond.
We Paint Maine - Camden Falls Gallery is located alongside beautiful Camden Harbor, on the public landing. We offer a rich diversity of original artwork in contemporary styles, focusing on the natural beauty of Mid coast Maine and its nautical heritage. The gallery is open daily from 10am to 5pm.
