WISCASSET, ME. – The Wiscasset Bay Gallery has opened the holiday season with a new show, “,” featuring contemporary Maine art and American and European paintings.
Highlighting the exhibition is James Clymer’s (American, born 1893) “Lobstermen, Maine Coast.” This bold, vibrant oil on board was painted during the Depression and illustrates the importance of the working man.
Another work is Estelle Monnet-Laverpiliere’s (French, fl. 1860-1863) “Still Life with Fruit.” Depicting grapes, peaches and blackberries in a natural outdoor setting, the delicately rendered still life captures its subject with amazing clarity and realism.
Other paintings include “Stonington, 1929,” a watercolor by William Zorach (American 1887-1966); “Girl With a Guitar” by Byron Browne (American, 1907-1961) and “Westward,” a marine by Carl Ludwig Bille (Danish, 1815-1898). New works by contemporary Maine artists, including Keith Oehmig, Michael Graves, Charles Goodhue, Geer Morton, Lois Goldstone and Cartlton Plummer, will also be on display.
The Wiscasset Bay Gallery is open Monday through Saturday from 10:30 until 5:00 and Sundays from 12:00 until 5:00. For information, 207-882-7682.
