Denmark Arts Center presents “Painting the Light”, a show of contemporary landscape paintings of Maine and New Hampshire by a trio of artists – Janet Gill who paints with pastels, and Linda Gray and Jeanne Ouellette who both paint in oils. Their work is inspired by the vibrant and ever-changing light on the landscapes where they paint outdoors on location as well as back in their studios. An opening celebration with the artists featuring light hors d’oeuvres and drinks and instrumental music with Vanessa Jones will be held from 5-7 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 6.

Football Highlights

Janet Gill loves working with pastels. “I am drawn to their rich and vibrant color and the energy that can be achieved by the actual pastel stroke or mark. When choosing subject matter and composition, color seems to be foremost in my mind. It is what excites me and draws me to a subject. My color choices often reflect what I am viewing but as the painting develops my color becomes more intuitive and somewhat pushed as I try to express the “feeling” of what I am painting and respond to the painting itself.”

Linda Gray lives in the Mount Washington Valley and paints oil on canvas landscapes, inspired by the dramatic elements of sky, land, and water found in the White Mountains and the coastal islands of Maine, be it the peace of early morning fog on the lake, or windswept clouds flying over granite peaks or white-capped seas.

Jeanne Ouellette takes inspiration and guidance from the landscape as she paints in Western Maine in the foothills of the White Mountains. “Painting the Light” will be on exhibit through September 24th, 2022. Light hors d’oeuvres, drinks and instrumental music with Vanessa Jones opens our art gallery show.

Denmark Arts Center Gallery opens is open each Saturday from 12-4pm. “Painting the Light” will show through Saturday, Sept. 24. Private viewings can be scheduled by email [email protected]
