Ed Parker “The Market Boat”

Gleason Fine Art of Boothbay Harbor, is thrilled to present Southport artist Ed Parker’s first single-artist show in Maine. “Painting the Story: The Maritime Art of Ed Parker” now through June 21

Ed Parker is internationally recognized as one of the leading marine artists working in the folk art tradition. However, Parker’s work is much more sophisticated than the phrase “folk artist” would suggest. Parker’s Yankee sensibilities combined with a deep respect for history and a sophisticated sense of design, proportion, and color all contribute to Parker’s uniqueness as a maritime artist with a sense of humor.
