BELFAST — Danielle Madore, of Peaks Island, and Deborah Stevenson, of Searsport, are exhibiting paintings at Local Color Gallery through October 3.
Stevenson is a lifelong painter and collage artist who recently moved to Searsport. Her exhibit at Local Color shows one aspect of her subject matter: houses in Maine that were advertised in real estate listings at a time of her life when moving to Maine was a dream. Some are even painted on boards from real estate signs. In addition to these pieces, Stevenson has painted New York skylines and created collages that reflect disparate images working together. Her body of work may be seen at www.deborahstevenson.com; deborah-stevenson-artist (FB) and #deborahstevensonartist (Instagram.)
Madore is a tattoo artist and writer/illustrator who recently turned back to painting after studying it in college. She states that the pandemic influenced this direction, providing many endless days to “hit the ground running,” according to Local Color, in a news release. She has done figurative work, and most recently outdoor scenes of Peaks Island and Casco Bay. Her paintings reflect the beauty of the island and the water, as well as the music she listens to while she paints, which sometimes influences the titles of her pieces. See more of her work at www.danielledmadore.com and #danithepirategirl (Instagram).
These two artists join the twelve regular artists whose work is available this month.
Local Color Gallery is located at 135 High Street, Belfast. Hours in September are Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
