Cafe Artist of the Month
We are pleased to be, once again, to be featuring Artwork in our Rising Tide Cafe!
In an effort to continue maintaining social distancing recommendation, art space will be limited.
Rising Tide will be welcoming Maine based photographer Michael Tatro’s work from June 28 through August 1. Tatro, originally a native of Vermont is currently the General Manager of the Gamage Shipyard in South Bristol, Maine, which inspires much of his work.
From the Artist:
Mike Tatro grew up in rural Vermont where he spent many of his formative years hunting and fishing with his grandfather. When not in the woods he was working on the many dairy farms which populated the rural landscape of his hometown, Westminster, VT. The woods, hills, streams, and farms all contributed to Mike’s deep appreciation of the natural world.
Moving to coastal Maine in the late ’80s, he learned to sail and further developed his craft in carpentry, mechanics, and electrical in the world of boats. His fastidious attention to detail was a perfect fit for photography and he’s found a way to capture the light and energy of life on the coast.
Stealing moments away from his role as General Manager at Gamage Shipyard he started photographing sunsets on the Gut in South Bristol, beautiful boats, and the people he works with every day. That has quickly brought him back to his roots in the natural world and these images are a small sample of what he’s captured while exploring the shores of the Sheepscot and Penobscot river basins. Mike’s love of the natural world, combined with his craft of Photoshop, has produced ‘true to the eye’ images and a personal creative style.
