Great Energy!

Well Spring has finally sprung in Maine. The leaves are coming in, the temperature is perfect. I have the door wide open. Everyone is out and about. But it is more than just the season that has me energized, we have new neighbors. Alex Parkers Steak House opened a few weeks ago and Vintage Wine Bar is now officially opened after having a soft opening for the Artwalk on May 3rd. I couldn’t be happier. Both have created wonderful spaces for people to enjoy good food, wine and company.

Of course there is plenty to be energized about at Monkitree. “Lost Maps of Norumbega” by Ken Gross (up through May 25th) was written up in Artscope Magazine. Here is a link to the preview. If you would like to read the whole article I have some copies of Artscope available at Monkitree.

jcNext up is “Chaos to Quiet: Deconstructing Complexity” by John Carnes. John lives here in Gardiner and has a studio space at Artdogs, just a few doors away. In this show, John communicates his emotional response to both landscape and the human figure. The show opens on May 31st and the artist reception is June 14th from 5-9pm. I can't wait to see John's work in this space.

I’m looking forward to an exciting summer. I hope to see you in Gardiner!

On To The Next

No sooner than feeling like I am prepared for the upcoming show, then I am onto the next. Lost Maps of Norumbega opens on April 5th. Postcards have been mailed, press release has gone out, opening listed on various event listing sites. Feeling pretty good.


So onto worrying and preparing for the next show. The yet un-named show featuring John Carnes. John and I met this morning to talk about

the show and to look at work. His landscape and figure works are fresh and contemporary. We picked a few options to include in the postcard so we can have those ready before Artwalk in Gardiner on May 3rd.


John has a piece featured in the April issue of Maine Magazine:
