THE LAND AND SEA SHINES UPSTAIRS AT HAYNES IN “LUMINOUS LIGHT & REFLECTIONS”
The show presents land and seascapes that capture the beauty and narrative abilities of nature with an emphasis on Maine landscapes. The show will be on view until August 13 at Haynes Galleries in Thomaston. Housed in a beautifully restored 19th century sea captain’s house, Haynes is full of great art, and this summer the upstairs galleries offer fresh, new work and roundup a showcase of some of America’s the finest Realists.
Capturing the mesmerizing effects of natural light on the land and sea can be excruciatingly difficult for painters. It has taunted artists for centuries. But in “Luminous Light & Reflections”, it has been done with expert flair by some of the most talented and perceptive landscape artists active today.
“Luminous Light & Reflections” showcases seascapes as well as glorious landscapes and quaint country scenes. Eric Sloane was well-known for his large body of work marked by New England landscapes, “barn portraits”, billowing skies, and western scenes. Summer Harvest is a gem among his landscape scenes. It depicts a hard day’s work on an open field, with a trademark tremendous blue sky for the background.
Quick and gestural. Smooth and still. Textured and imposing. The range of the landscape paintings in “Luminous Light & Reflections” will pleasantly surprise. These works are much more than paintings of pretty places. They are portraits of a place during a particular moment in time and all the emotion that accompanied it.
The gallery will remain OPEN during our regular business hours (9am-5pm, Tues-Sat), regardless of construction. We will also happily extend our hours for special requests, call us anytime: 615-430-8147 or 207-594-0605 for more information. Haynes Galleries is located at 91 Main Street, Thomaston, Maine.
