Event has passed
CAMDEN — The Camden Public Library welcomes artist Lisa Kyle for a solo exhibit of her paintings, titled “The Magic of Maine” in the Picker Room Gallery during the month of December*. The collection features landscape paintings of the Midcoast and celebrates the beauty and serenity that Kyle has found in Maine.
The public is invited to view the exhibit and meet Lisa Kyle during the Opening Reception on Saturday, Dec. 9, from 1 - 3 p.m., in the Picker Room at the Camden Public Library.
“As I was painting this year, I was reminded of the excitement that I always felt when we drove to Maine for our summer vacations,” said Kyle, in a CPL news release. “As we got closer to Maine, the traffic diminished and the scenery grew more beautiful. Even the light seemed clearer and brighter. While we have now lived in Maine full-time for 6 years, I am still entranced by the beauty of Maine: the quality of the light, the simple yet compelling forms of the old houses and barns, the subtle colors of the meadows, the amazing summer sunsets and the views over the water. The paintings in the collection 'The Magic of Maine' are about the beauty and serenity that I have found in the landscape of Maine, especially the Mid Coast regions, including the Pemaquid Peninsula, Boothbay, Marshall Point and Birch Point State Park. There are also paintings inspired by Vinalhaven and Jonesport. In each painting I have tried to depict a landscape that could only be Maine, especially Maine in the glorious season of summer.”
