“Dawn Light,” by Robert Wellings.

Robert Wellings will exhibit his paintings at the Gallery at Somes Sound throughout October.

Wellings’ inspiration for this collection of work is the ability of the Maine landscape to evoke in the viewer a sense of solitude and mystery. Scenes of dusk-lit meadows, silhouettes of rocky shores, bare trees in the pre-dawn hours and other moments of contemplative witness are painted from memory, imagination and plein-air sketches. Through these works of various

times and places in the Maine landscape, Wellings hopes viewers will reconnect with their own deep experiences of belonging, wonder and gratitude.

Five percent of sales from Wellings’ show will be donated to the Wendell Gilley Museum because the Gallery at Somes Sound supports their mission of bringing people closer to nature through the arts.

The Gallery at Somes Sound is at 1112 Main St., Mount Desert. Email www.galleryatsomessound.com, or call 207-610-4622 for more information.
