This winter Gleason Fine Art is pleased to announce we have two offsite shows at two wonderful locations.
Firstly, Eye Catchers: Artwork for Holiday Giving,
Imagine opening a beautifully wrapped present and instead of the usual shirt, tie, or bathrobe, finding an exquisite still life of spider mums by revered artist Helen St Clair; or a cozy, snow-draped Maine home in winter by Mitch Billis; or a tiny sunset painted in blazing blues, yellows, and pinks by East Boothbay artist Andrea Peters.
That’s the thinking behind “Eye Catchers: Artwork for Holiday Giving”—the joy of receiving a gift that is simultaneously original, personal, and lasting. Besides St. Clair, Peters, and Billis, the gallery also has a bevy of small paintings by Damariscotta artists John Neville and Jessica Ives, by new Maine resident Kevin Beers, and by Cranberry Island artist Henry Isaacs. For enthusiasts of David Witbeck’s humorous fishermen holding big-eyed fish, we just received a fresh batch of Witbeck’s woodblocks. And if it’s three-dimensional art your loved one craves, how about a sea-creature-entwined bowl by Roque Bluffs ceramic artist Tim Christensen; or an ocean theater of folk artist Jeff Barrett’s “happy fish”?!, open November 15 - January 1.
Secondly, Andrea Peters's winter paintings will be available for viewing and sale during Coastal Maine Botanical Garden's "Gardens Aglow", the inaugural celebration of Winter featuring the state of Maine's largest light show ever, her work can been seen from November 21 - December 31.
Thirdly, Phil Barter's brightly colored paintings will be on view at Sothebys Legacy Office in Damariscotta (170 Main St.) from December 1 - January 31, with a reception for Phil Friday December 11 from 4-6pm.
