Roger Barry

is a sculptor of wood. He produces furniture, abstract sculpture, and, featured in this exhibition: Reliquaries. Barry writes "​Working with wood is in my blood. My great-grandfather published The Lumberman’s Actuary and my grandfather and father were in the lumber milling business. In 1975 I received a BFA in wood sculpture from Eastern Michigan University. 
Secret locks have intrigued me all my life. Many of my reliquaries incorporate hidden mechanisms which enhance the interaction with the piece. After the process of creation, I love to display a sculpted box and say, “open it.

​Alston Stoney Conley

graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston in 1974, and is on the faculty of the Fine Arts Department of Boston College. His work in watercolor features landscapes with trees, water and clouds at sunset/sunrise.​ Conley says: “I live under a New England sky. The light, its color, intensity, sensation, season, and length of day influence my psyche, mood, interior life and art practice. The long hours of daylight during summer and short hours during winter define our seasons, influence our lives, and distance us from our southern neighbors. The low sun, color-rich light and long shadows of early morning or end of the day often silhouette the horizon or individual trees in shadow, while the light fills the sky.”

Admission is free and light refreshments will be served. Centre St Arts Gallery, LLC, is open 7 days a week during the summer​, Monday through Saturday 10:30 am to 5:00 pm, and Sunday 12 noon to 4:00 pm. For more information, please call 207-452-0300, or visit the Gallery at 11 Centre Street, Bath.

Opening Reception

Centre St Arts Gallery, LLC, 
welcomes guest pastel artist 
Kay Sullivan

Spring Ripple, pastel, Kay Sullivan
Wine & Cheese Reception
Friday, May 26, 2017, 5 to 7 pm
11 Centre Street, Bath

Public welcome. Refreshments will be served. Admission is free.

Kay Sullivan is a Maine based artist whose work from nature reflects time's passing: its rhythms, cycles, seasons. Kay received her MFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, PA, and is a juried member of the Pastel Society of America. Her work has been exhibited in numerous juried and group shows, and is held in private collections across the country. Kay lives in rural Maine with her husband and daughter.

Kay describes her work: "These places in my drawings are my home: the yard and woods where I walk, the river where I unwind. As I continue to explore this land which has been in my husband’s family for generations, I am acutely aware of time’s passing. It is evident in the changes of days and the rhythms of seasons. Through the movement of my hand, in my lines and marks, I make my connection with nature’s energy. These marks are the evidence I leave, the history of my time in this place."

K​ay's work will be on exhibit until July 14.
Twenty Maine artist members work in a wide variety of styles and media, producing new work for every show. All work is original, with framed and matted pieces available, and sculpture in stone, clay and bronze.

Wine & Cheese

Opening Reception

Friday, March 31, 5 -7 pm

Botanical artist Katie E. MacGillivary is the featured guest artist at Centre St Arts Gallery, LLC, at 11 Centre Street in Bath, from March 29 through May 19, 2017.

Kate is a gardener as well as an artist. She says: "My studio business is a conglomeration of the things I am most impassioned about; gardening, nature and plants, art and ecology.  ​"​I enjoy the challenge of waking up a garden or sprucing up a flower bed that has been neglected and needs some encouragement.  When the season is winding down, I then cultivate my impassioned energy to producing art, especially art that is focused on capturing flora (botanical illustration). My goal with my art is to share my passion with others whom may appreciate it​."

"Fortunate enough to spend my formative years surrounded by pristine forests and the rugged north Atlantic, I developed a love for all of nature's beauty at a young age. I also found my natural talent for art and painting (watercolor is my favorite medium, although colored pencils have become a favorite.) at a young age and was primarily self-taught through my high school years."
"I went on to earn a degree in Graphic Design.  In September of 2009, I received my certificate of study from the Denver Botanic Gardens Botanical Illustration Program. I am a recent (2012) graduate in the Native Plants and Ecology certificate program at the Coastal Maine Botanic Gardens in Boothbay, Maine.​"

Twenty member-artists of the Centre St Arts Gallery, LLC have new works in the latest show at the gallery which will run until May 19.

One Space Left!

Stuart Ross's Acrylic/Oil Painting Class


1 space left!  It's not too late to sign up

Revised Materials List, see below

Stuart Ross

4 weeks: April 6, 13, 20, 27, 2017
10:00 am to 12:30 pm

11 Centre Street, Bath

Class description

The still life can be thought of as a small landscape; the same concerns present themselves: composition, spacial clarity, light, color, etc.

I will show a slide presentation of various painter's approach to the subject, and set up a still life for the first two meetings. Students will bring their own still life objects for the last two meetings, either by themselves or collaborating in groups. (Actual objects are preferable to photographs for these exercises.)

Contact Tory Jackson at 207-841-2014 if you would like more information.

Revised Materials List:

Easel: Best is a french-style box easel that carries all your paints, but any sturdy wood or metal portable floor easel will do, (no tabletop easels, please).

Paints: A professional grade of oils or acrylics; Winsor-Newton, Golden, Rembrandt, etc. Not student grade. 37ml tubes ocolors, 150ml tube of white. The following colors are essential and relatively inexpensive: Ultramarine Blue; Phthalo Blue; Light Yellow (winsor yellow, zinc yellow, lemon yellow, Hansa Yellow etc.) Indian red (or equiv. like mars red, venetian red, etc.);  Burnt Siena; Yellow Ochre; Titanium white (zinc is OK, no lead or Cremnitz)

Brushes: Bristle, natural hog for oil, synthetic for acrylic. These come in flats, brights, rounds and filberts, referring to the shape of the brush, and are numbered for size. A minimum would be a #2, #4, and #6, flat, round, or filbert. Good brushes are tapered not blunt, with no stray bristles sticking out. Each bristle has a forked end. Throw away hardened, misshapen brushes, and don't buy cheap ones.

Palette: Wooden palette hard to clean, but OK. I use a piece of glass so I can scrape it clean with a razor blade scraper. Tape the edges. Disposable paper palette is OK. Plastic dinner plate.

Painting surface: Primed canvas, prestretched, at least 16x20. These can be reused a number of times.Canvas board OK, or any stiff cardboard, as long as it is gessoed.

Thinner: For oils, odorless paint thinner, used sparingly.

Misc.: paper towels or rags; palette knife; water jars; Spray bottle
