Show Run: August 16th – September 11th

A new exhibit from Maine-based artists Shelly Elmer, Jennifer Pope, and Betty Heselton.

“Painting plein air offers a great sense of adventure and exploration. Discovering new places and rediscovering familiar ones with the luxury of time (as painting requires) is one of the most satisfying moments of life. When these paintings get worked deeply into my psyche I can then morph them into something more fantastical or abstract and in that way can keep a theme evolving into something new and exciting again. Working with different paint mediums, surfaces, and sizes is a way to capture the feeling I am seeking to communicate and allows for a greater sense of play and surprise.”
—Shelly Elmer
