Amy Brnger

Life Observed

Amy Brnger combines rich colors, full brush strokes and keen observation to create her domestically inspired small paintings of interiors, landscapes and flower arrangements. Still life and landscapes are often paired together, as both influence one another equally, in her mind. She graduated from the University of New Hampshire where she earned her Bachelor of Arts in Studio Arts in 1986 and her Master of Arts in Counseling in 1992.

Richard Brown Lethem

Having Too Much Fun

Richard Brown Lethem’s bold work runs the gamut from stark anti-war imagery to the themes in this exhibition of “GAMES”played in his Mid-Western childhood and the series called “HOME BODIES”; small scale meditations on the mundane everyday experiences in the infinite and enchanted space we call home. Brown studied with Edwin Dickinson and John Heliker at Columbia University and exhibited his work at the Allan Stone Gallery in New York City. He currently paints in a converted stable in Berwick Maine.

Nancy Grace Horton

Ms. Behavior

Nancy Grace Horton’s photographs are a 21st century extension of feminist concerns regarding the media’s portrayal of women. Using narrative fragments that confound the conventions of popular culture, she explores the norms of female behavior – and misbehavior. This particular body of work, titled Ms. Behavior, uses props, models, and various locations, which are the catalysts for the development of strong, graphic narrative compositions. She intends her work to confront the viewer with hidden preconceptions concerning women’s constructed roles within society. She does so with sensitivity and humor.

All images are archival pigment prints, available in an edition of 10. Sizes are 30” x 30” and 17” x 17”. Framed $1200 and $800. Unframed $775 and $375.

 

Cabot Lyford

Sculpture

Cabot Lyford is one of the region’s most recognized sculptors. His work is in museums and public spaces across the country. He is equally skilled at carving stone and wood with much of his inspiration coming from nature and the female form.
