CAMDEN — Camden Falls Gallery will host one more show this year to accommodate Camden’s new Thursday Art Walks. The next art walk will be Thursday, October 10. The participating galleries in Camden will open for extended hours, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Camden Falls Gallery’s final show of the season is entitled “Last Splash of Color.” The show features works by some of the galleries’ top colorists. These featured artists are known for their vibrant use of juxtaposing colors in contemporary styles. Rooted in, and inspired by, their natural environment, these artists take to their own course and colorful journeys, according to the Gallery, in a news release. They create lively, vibrant, abstracted, and sometimes comical interpretations of what they see. They are moved by their subjects to record their muses on canvas.
“If you’re feeling weary about the longer nights, and the darkness that befalls this season, stop by for a boost, as we’ve cranked up the color notch, to get you over the hump and into the next season,” said the Gallery.
Featured in the show are an amalgamation of artists who are known for using shapes, colors, and an array of practices and techniques to create playful artwork. These artists push the boundaries of color patterns, and make joyful combinations of wild, bold, and uncommon paintings.
Artists include Ann Trainer Domingue, Jan McElhinny, Jennifer Van Cor, Aline Ordman, Susan Graeber, Janis Sanders, and Ryan Kohler.
“As part of a larger strategy to establish Camden as a strong presence in the Maine art scene, Camden Falls Gallery is proud to join forces with our long time friends and neighbors at the Small Wonder Gallery, the Page Gallery, Carver Hill Gallery, Iron Bound, and DAAC Designs,” said Camden Falls. “With the successful launch and the enthusiasm generated by Camden’s first art walk, we are excited and look forward to our next art walk on Thursday, October 10, 2019.”
Begin your experience at the Public landing where Camden Falls Gallery and Small Wonder are located. Continue your journey with an easy stroll up to Bay View Street, where you’ll find Page, Carver Hill, Ironbound and DAAC Designs Galleries, according to Camden Falls.
