Elaine Reed Gallery Talk

Challenging Yourself to Grow as an Artist
March 15, 2015
3:30 - 5:00
$5 suggested fee

After the Rain, Portland
We will explore the importance of having a strong composition and value pattern before starting your painting. More important than that is to create a response to your subject that is uniquely your own.
Why do you paint? What are you moved by? What do you feel passionate about? We will discuss and explore how these thoughts and decisions can help us grow as an artist.

I have spent over 25 summers painting on Monhegan Island with an informal community of artists. This experience has been critical to my development as a painter.

My work is currently showing at the Mars Hall Gallery in Tennants Harbor Maine and can be viewed on line at their site and at tapwater-art.com as part of a NYC based group of seven painters.

I am on the Bath Art Walk which shows the third Friday of each month at my studio at 131 Oak St in Bath.

Herbie is Here!

The Centre St Arts Gallery, LLC is pleased to announce the arrival of Herbie
a new sculpture  by Andreas von Huene.

Herbie was carved from the historic Yarmouth elm tree of the same name which was cut down in 2010.  The tree was over 100 feet tall, and 217 years old.


Andreas says:

"Heron is 106" tall, 21" across toes, 14" front- to back (not including base) and is one piece from beak to toes although the toes, tailfeather, and upper side of the leg are added. He is from the trunk where a branch came out, hence the open checking of the feather tips


The renowned furniture maker Chris Becksvoort called the woodworking and sculpture community together to put "Herbie"- the giant Elm of Yarmouth- to good use. I found this long, partially sawn piece and dreamt of its potential.

I spent the good part of a winter carving this beautiful wood and giving back to Herbie's memory."

Please note: Andreas will give a Gallery Talk on Sunday, March 1, 2015 from 3:30 to 5 pm at the Gallery.  The subject is "Keeping it Positive". Suggested fee $5.
