Click Here for a PDF of the invitation

Craig Hood / Lincoln Perry / Derrick Te Paske

This exhibition brings together the work of two well established painters: Lincoln Perry, also a sculptor and muralist who lives part of the year in York, Maine and Craig Hood, a resident of Portsmouth New Hampshire and a recently retired professor from the University of New Hampshire. The artists share a Jewel-like pallet and place allegorical and mysterious figures into their landscapes.

Complementing the paintings are wood-turned sculptures by Boston area artist Derrick Te Paske. His elegant simple forms take advantage of natural grains and are often embellished with markings and studded with brass or copper pins. Click Here to view images of Te Paske's sculpture.

All three artists have spent years in academia and a keen interest in art history is apparent in all their work.  

Noriko Sakanishi

Noriko Sakanishi has been working abstractly since the 1970’s. There seems to be no limit to the combinations that she can make while restricting her shapes to simple squares, rectangles and spheres. Her wall-hung constructions give the illusion of weight, either stone or metal, when in fact they are made of light weight foam materials, meticulously painted in earth tones and applied  texture.

Following DeWitt
Ken Fellows / Bill Paarlberg / Russel Whitten

DeWitt Hardy was a mainstay of the Ogunquit art community until is sudden death in the Autumn of 2018. He is being recognized this summer at Bates College in the exhibition "DeWitt Hardy: A Master of Watercolor." Besides his own painting he is remembered and revered as a teacher. Ken Fellows, Bill Paarlberg and Russel Whitten all studied with him for many years. Hardy was more than a teacher to these men, but a pivotal mentor. His legacy is carried forward by these artists who learned from the best and now share what they have learned through their own teaching and exhibiting.

George Marshall Store Gallery Sponsorship - July 15 - Aug 20

Posted on July 12, 2017 by Devon Morrow

Anne Erwin Sotheby's International Realty is proud to sponsor the upcoming exhibit at the George Marshall Store Gallery from July 15 - August 20.
Join us Saturday, July 15 from 5-7pm at the George Marshall Store Gallery at 140 Lindsay Road, York, ME for the opening reception.
Gallery hours: Tuesday – Saturday 10-5 / Sunday 1-5 / and by appointment

David Ernster, Phyllis Ewen & Wendy Prellwitz: Imprint

David Ernster is a ceramic artist whose work is deeply connected to nature and water. This inherent connection is rooted in both the materials he uses and his childhood fascination with fossil formations along the Mississippi river. David’s interest in vessels and their ability to contain infinite possibilities is what drew him to work with clay and metal, mediums traditionally used in the creation of vessels. In addition to his own work in ceramics, metal, and jewelry, David has taught at multiple universities and is a visiting professor of art at Colby-Sawyer College. Click here to view images of David’s work.

Phyllis Ewen‘s mixed-media artwork is a fusion of art and science with an emphasis on the organic quality of nature. Her sculptural drawings present an exploration of the effects of global warming, such as drying rivers and rising seas. This subtle commentary on politics, society, and nature is a common thread throughout her work, no matter the medium. Phyllis currently works in Somerville, Massachusetts at her studio in the Brickbottom Artist Building, of which she is a founding member. Click here to view images Phyllis’s work.

The combination of graphic and organic imagery in Wendy Prellwitz‘s monotypes and paintings are a result of the dualities that she observes in the fluidity of water – the known and unknown, the tangible and intangible. Ultimately, her work aims to draw the viewer out of themselves and into the infinite beyond of the sea. Wendy currently works at her studio in Somerville, Massachusetts. Click here to view images of Wendy’s work.

Amy Brnger: Surroundings

Amy Brnger uses nature as a vehicle for expression and inspiration throughout all of her paintings, whether it be still life, landscape, or flowers. Her landscapes are often drawn from her surroundings on the seacoast, serving as a means to enjoy and record the region that she calls home. Amy lives and works in seacoast New Hampshire. Click here to view images of Amy's work.

Brett X. Gamache: Fresh & Ripe

Brett X. Gamache is an oil painter who works and teaches in the Boston area. He paints mostly from observation, typically outdoors, and strives to capture the light, energy, and life that he sees before him. Brett received a BFA in painting from Mass Art, an MFA in painting from the University of New Hampshire, and studied in Italy as a Fulbright recipient in 2007. Images of Brett’s work coming soon.
