The Midcoast Maine area is just teeming with talented artists and artisans. They get a lot of their inspiration from the rocky coastline, the lush landscape, and the richness of the local culture.
Rockland hosts a wonderful monthly event where all the galleries and artisan shops stay open late and offer refreshments or music. It’s so fun to mosey up and down the main street popping into all the shops and galleries to see the diverse talent that’s so abundant here. Click here to see all participating galleries and shops.
We’re excited to be participating in both artwalks this month:
November 6th & 27th
This month we’re hosting art from local artist Jan Dearborn from Thomaston.
A Maine-born painter with a deep love of the landscape and coastline. As a child she was fortunate enough to explore the wild and unusual places.
A fine arts degree, and classical training made Jan fall in love with oils as a medium, one she rarely deviates from.
Skilled in portraiture, plein air landscape (weather permitting), still life, and custom work, her broad talent can be seen in an array of paintings.
John Singer Sargent is an admired artist, both personally and professionally.
Jan’s work is ever evolving, she gives herself the freedom to experiment without becoming trapped in a particular style.
Here’s a sampling of her amazing oil paintings…
Join us on the 6th and 27th for refreshments and stunning art!
