So, I got a message from Sebasco Harbor Resort just a few days ago asking me if I was interested in showcasing some of my artwork and the artwork of some of my Phippsburg Art & Info Barn Gallery artists at The Ledges pub. Needless to say, I was very excited to do so.
We are thrilled the resort has started to feature local artists and look forward to a long and mutually beneficial networking relationship with them. Thank you!
It's been windy, chilly, and sunny in midcoast Maine. Hoping things will warm up just a bit as it's more fun painting outside when the weather is just a bit nicer. That wind wreaked havoc with my acrylics I was working on today but I managed to get a little bit done.
My Barn Gallery is closed on Sundays and Tuesdays but stop down any other day from 10-4 for a visit. We are currently ffeaturing the new works of Ellie Barnet, Judie Freer, Melinda Campbell, Jean Powers, Cindy Ballard, and myself ,Andrea Brand, and the barn is filled with many wonderful new one of a kind gifts and artwork.
Have a safe and wonderful few days friends. Thanks for following the journey. More later :)
Happy Mother's Day! It's a little foggy on the Maine coast this morning but warm and sweet. All the spring flowers are finally blooming and the fishermen are starting to set their traps. Opened the Barn Gallery for Season #3 this weekend. So nice to be back at the barn!
The captain found out yesterday that his helper from last year isn't going to be going fishing this year. None of them last long. Too bad, this guy was one of the best. I personally think fishermen are either born fishermen or they are just temporary fishermen. Captain's been fishing since he was five. He was born a fisherman :)
So, next year is going to be the 200th celebration of the incorporation of the Town of Phippsburg (my home town). There are some wonderfully events already in the works and special t-shirts have been designed.. I'll be posting more events planned soon.
Well, lots of work to do before I go to work. I so appreciate all of your support and encouragement. Have a safe, sweet, wonderful day and thanks for following the journey.
Season #3 at my Phippsburg Art & Info Barn Gallery officially opens this Friday, May 10, 2013. We did have a sneak peek preview last weekend with a few of the artists showing as the weather was spectacular.Thank you to all the old friends, new friends, followers, and daytrippers who stopped by for a visit.
This season we have four regular artists including myself and a new featured artist added weekly. Guest artists are showing for two weeks each, and the season lasts through October 10. Please see the Schedule page for all the details and artists.
Ellie Barnet is returning with her wonderfully collectible oil paintings of Maine. Ellie was our number one selling guest artist last season and is fast becoming one of the most sought after artists in the region. Large and small scale fine art works of landscapes and seascapes around the Casco Bay area are her specialty.
Cindy Ballard will be back with her beautiful, one of a kind, seaglass jewelry, nautical paintings, seaglass flowers, delightful dragonflies, and much, much more.
Jean Powers of Downeast Artworks will be joining us again with her hand wrapped jewelry make from quartz, micah, birchbark, and gemstones gathered from her land in Phippsburg.
Andrea Brand (that's me) will be painting all summer (mostly seascapes on driftwood or canvas, and thick,drippy abstracts on various materials), and have hand sewn sachets, posters, puzzles, pillows, collages, cards, antiques and more.
Located conveniently on the way to Popham Beach (here's a map), we hope you will stop by the barn for a visit to one of the coolest, little art galleries you've ever seen.
Thanks for following the journey. More later.
