“Hungry Island Ledges Back Cove” by Jean Kigel.

During November at Jean Kigel Studio + Gallery, the exhibit “Transfiguration” continues with variations on autumn themes.

The paintings in this exhibit mark small transitions from autumn to winter. Foliage can articulate winter’s approach with  mere dots of red shrubbery on the seacoast, and with subtle vermilions on withering vines.

In this exhibit, Kigel pairs Asian brush paintings with oils, revealing her range of media. 

Born and brought up in Maine, Kigel ventured to Boston and Philadelphia for schooling and to Maryland for work before her Maine roots called her back. The paintings in this show result from colorful and expressive brushstrokes on absorbent Chinese and Japanese rice papers. 

Jean Kigel Studio + Gallery is at 1396 Back Cove Road in Waldoboro. The gallery is open year-round with flexible hours. Calling ahead is recommended at 207-975-3262. Preview Kigel’s work at www.jeankigel.com. For more information, email jean@jeankigel.com.
