Tom Glover first exhibited at the George Marshall Store Gallery in the spring of 1996 with a solo show called “Brave Boat Harbor and Other Views.” Since then he has been a regular exhibitor and it is appropriate to mark the gallery’s 20th anniversary year with another solo exhibition, this time titled “Brave Boat Harbor Revisited.”

He has worked diligently for the past year and a half in preparation for this showing, spending many hours exploring the area from various vantage points, times of year, and times of day. Glover received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of New Hampshire in 1984. Since then he has committed himself to painting, alternating between realistic landscapes and complex abstractions.

Judith Allen-Efstathiou spends half the year in Greece and the other half in Portland, Maine. She maintains studios and actively exhibits and teaches in both places.
“Mapping the Walk” is a series of gouache, graphite and ink drawings that document the wildflowers that grow along an ancient 5th century BC footpath on the Island of Kea.  With the threat of the path being paved over,  the artist domuments the plants month by month, not so much as a recording for posterity but as an act of protest and mourning. Her interest in documenting loss in the natural world caused by human activities is a common theme in her work.
