“Let’s See, The June Exhibition” marks the beginning of Season IV at the Cynthia Winings Gallery. Everyone is warmly invited to the Opening Reception for the new group show, Sunday, May 29, 4 – 7 PM.
Let’s See: The June Exhibition, features the artwork of Ingrid Ellison, Tom Flanagan and Suzanne Siegel, with new work from Louise Bourne,Tim Christensen, Tom Curry, Heidi Daub, Roberta Amina Greany, Bill Mayher, Libby Mitchell, and Goody-B. Wiseman, and paintings from the estate of Russell Smith, and is on view until June 26!
Ellison writes of her oil on panel paintings, “the colors of the changing hues of the water and skies most decidedly inform my palette. The patterns discovered in the erosion of the tide or the planking of a wooden hull inform my drawing.” The final result in her seascapes is a visually engaging abstraction of the observed world. Since moving to Maine in 2007, Ellison has exhibited at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art, Åarhus Gallery and the University of Maine Bangor, and the Cynthia Winings Gallery.
For Tom Flanagan, improvisation is incredibly important in his creative process. In his large acrylic on canvas paintings, shapes of color contrast and harmonize. Daniel Kany, an art critic, wrote of Flanagan’s work in a recent show, his “bold palette activates the elegance of his paintings as objects – a quality reinforced by the artist’s many-layered color gestures that so often run the length of his panels.” Flanagan moved to Maine in 2006 and currently has his studio in Brunswick.
Suzanne Siegel works in oil and mixed media, and is inspired by working harbors and the rugged coast of New England. The texture, color and line in her abstract paintings suggest what she observes in these environments. Siegel writes, “my current work is more about not knowing, searching, and wondering.” In her process, she “makes drawings, takes notes, and searches for visual ideas that communicate arrangements of space and luminous light that she feels deeply connected to.” Siegel lives in Guilford, CT and has exhibited her artwork throughout New England, notably with a solo exhibition in 2014 at Isalos Fine Art in Stonington, Deer Isle.
We are fortunate to include in this exhibit new work from Louise Bourne,Tim Christensen, Tom Curry, Heidi Daub, Roberta Amina Greany, Bill Mayher, Libby Mitchell, Goody-B. Wiseman, and paintings from the estate of Russell Smith.
The Cynthia Winings Gallery is an artist-owned gallery located at 24 Parker Point Road in Blue Hill, and was formerly known as the Leighton Gallery. This is the beginning of the fourth season for the C.W.G. in this historic location.
