BELFAST — Local Color Gallery, in Belfast, welcomes Marli Thibodeau as a year round artist. Thibodeau is a contemporary artist working from her studio in Rockland. 

Influenced by the natural world and the lineage of Abstract Expressionism, artists such as Helen Frankenthaler, Perle Fine, and Franz Klien, she has been inspired towards non-objective painting. She is immersed in the study of the landscape around her and the inner landscape of self-discovery through movement and visual arts.

Thibodeau creates layered textures in acrylic and drawing mediums, applying opaque and transparent marks on paper or canvas. Her approach requires her to remain open to possibility rather than having a set outcome in mind. Her creative goals are to give voice to a wild sense of beauty, the excitement of discovery, and to nurture the spark of possibility.

A new show including Thibodeau’s work will open Wednesday, April 7.

Local Color Gallery is located at 135 High Street, in Belfast, open Wednesday-Sunday 11-4; for details visit localcolorgallerymaine.com.
