February 2012    Jan Kilburn

A Maine native, Jan Kilburn has happily lived on the New England coast for most of her life. She has spent her years of painting conveying the subtle raw beauty of our coastal environment. The Maine fishing villages, Monhegan Island, the historic capes with their architectural purity combined with beautiful gardens; all combine to provide unlimited opportunities for Jan to paint. Jan’s passion is to paint with her impressionistic realism using the colors, shapes and textures she sees to create a warm and remarkably calm interpretation of her view of life here in Maine. Plein air is her favorite form of painting and enjoys teaching others in her three different summer workshops: at Popham Beach, Monhegan Island, and Pemaquid area. She also teaches on Mondays at her gallery on Bristol Road and in a one-day workshop each month in Portsmouth NH, and another in Ocean Park, ME.   Her gallery at 168 Bristol Road in Damariscotta is open daily from noon to 5 PM, or by chance or appointment. Jan Kilburn can be reached at 563-8363, or by e mail:  [email protected].

March 2012  Rachel Hamlin

Rachel has been an art educator for the past seven years, and it has been a top priority for her to help others to find a connection with the arts either within their own creative expressions, culture or personhood. Photography is a great way to explore and express the inner-self. The photos in this show were taken over the course of two Maine summers exploring the vast landscapes of Coastal Maine. Monhegan Island,Vinalhaven, Boothbay Harbor and the Wiscasset Waterfront were locations where the simplistic beauty of Coastal Maine were captured. She enjoys getting up close and personal with all that Mother Nature has to offer; the lens of the camera captures more detail than the naked eye: texture, vivid color, creatures frozen in time, light and shadow, sentiment, diverse perspectives and stoic landmarks. Although summer seems far away, staring at these images can create an illusion of the hot summer sun shining on one’s face. Capturing and preserving the warmth of Maine’s abundant scenic interludes has been such a joyful endeavor to be cherished forever not only by herself, but by all who can appreciate the bond between art, nature and beauty.

April 2012   Sue Ann Reed

“I am moved by the beauty of nature, the sensuality of color and pattern, and the way in which the heart responds to these forces,” says Reed. “I can lose myself in the magnificence of the smallest patterns of a leaf. In all that I experience, always present, is the underlying hum of the universe.”

It can take several weeks for Reed to complete a painting, and she often works on two or three at a time.

“So much of life – the intricate beauty of our natural surroundings – is veiled from us and our psyches,” says Reed. “The mystical realm is hidden as well, or maybe we’ve forgotten to look. I strive to draw the viewer into the many layers of this hidden reality and to open up what is within and without.”

Reed is a graduate of the University of Missouri, with an MFA in printmaking and drawing. She has more than 30 years of experience as a fine artist and has worked on many commissions with individual collectors and corporations as well as designers and architects. Her work can be found in the Portland Museum of Art and in private collections throughout the U.S. and in Russia.



(April 30 through June 2, 2012) As a long-time gardener, Anna D. Shaw is drawn to both plants and the patterns they make in Nature. Beyond that, the landscape in general creates patterns. On the computer, Anna has learned to use Photoshop to manipulate these patterns and abstract them further.

This show combined straight shots of plants, both in the garden and in Nature, with patterns and abstractions. Anna was a freelance photographer for 21 years before moving to Newcastle full time in 2000. Now she does only Fine Arts work, and has shown in many local venues.
