ROCKLAND — Portrait and landscape artist Winslow Myers will show a broad selection of his recent paintings at the Yellow Barn, across the street from the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, in Rockland.
The exhibition opens Thursday, July 25, with a reception on Friday, August 2, from 4 to 9 p.m., during Rockland’s First Friday Art Walk. The exhibit will close on Saturday, August 17.
Myers, of Bristol, grew up in the Damariscotta area and taught studio art and art history in Massachusetts and Rhode Island before moving back to Maine. A painter for fifty years, Myers’ work can be viewed in many public and private collections.
For this exhibit, Myers will donate 10% of sales to local nonprofit New Hope for Women, offering support to people in Knox, Lincoln, Sagadahoc, and Waldo counties affected by domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. It also provides educational resources to assist communities in creating a safer and healthier future.
