July 19 – August 24, 2014
Mark Goodwin / Paul Heroux / Wendy Turner
Opening Reception: Saturday, July 19, 5-7 pm
Mark Goodwin’s canvases, works on paper and sculptural construction are non-objective. He paints, draws, erases, scratches, folds, rubs and cuts various materials, creating works that seem to relay messages and have a sense of history and discovery. He studied sculpture and drawing at the University of Kansas and did graduate studies in Artisanry and Wood at the University of Massachusetts.
Paul Heroux is a master ceramic artist living and working in Central Maine. A maker of vessels, his lustrous surface decoration references plant life, erotics, landscape, and a number of other changing influences. The work is sculptural, visibly strong, durable, and is intended to invite touch and use. He received his degrees from the Boston Museum of Fine Art, was head of the ceramics department at Bates College for nearly three decades and a frequent instructor at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. His work is included in numerous museums, corporations and private collections.
Brave Boat Harbor Reflections
For the past forty years, Wendy Turner has painted with watercolor, pastel, and most recently with oil. Her large intricate close-ups of light on rocks and water reflect her early love of the ocean and the coast of Maine. Born in Boston in 1954, Turner grew up on Cutts Island in Kittery Point, Maine. She received her BFA and MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. Light, color and clarity are the subjects of Turner’s paintings. Her paintings sharply focus the chaos and beauty of the landscape, reflect and magnify the healing, fragile nature of our planet.
