Work by Vera Rahn.

MOTHERS Art & Antique Gallery, which brings the world to Down East Maine, announces inaugural exhibitions: “Mother Nature,” a solo exhibition of oil and paster landscapes and still lifes by Vera Rahn, and “Water,” a group exhibition of all manners of water.

“Mother Nature”: Vera Rahn, a third generation artist, grew up in a family of professional artists in The Hague, Holland. Her grandparents were both painters — her grandfather, Floris Artnzenius (1864-1925), was a prominent member of The Hague School, which inspired Vincent van Gogh how to paint, and his paintings are in top collections and museums in Holland.

A piece by Whitney Vosburgh, featured in “Water.”

Rahn has a world of experience. She has lived in The Hague, Paris, Washington, D.C., New York City, Colorado, New Jersey, Connecticut, Tokyo and London. She studied art in Paris, sumi painting in Tokyo, portrait painting in London, and landscape painting in Nova Scotia, Santa Fe, the south of France and at the Silvermine School of Art.

As a member of the Rowayton Art Center, Vera has won well over 30 prizes. She has also won prizes at the Darien Art Show, the Art Society of Old Greenwich, The Greenwich Art Society and the Spectrum Art Exhibition. Her work has been featured by many newspapers and magazines including New Canaan Magazine and Artists and Artisans.

“Water”: Oil, acrylic, watercolor and pastel paintings of Maine by various artists, including Vera Rahn, Kathleen Kinawy, Dutav, C. Gibson and Whitney Vosburgh.
