The Little Holiday Show” art show at the Kefauver Studio & Gallery, Damariscotta, currently showcases eclectic and beautiful original art for holiday gift giving, for every budget.  The show runs through Jan. 2.

Watercolors by Cindy Spencer, Wiscasset, bring the charm of Maine to life in vibrant colors.  Her work has been exhibited in solo and group shows throughout the state.  She has done extensive work with the Mt. Washington Valley Arts Association, New Hampshire, including teaching and organizing plein air events. 

Carolyn Gabbe is new to the gallery.  She lives in Nobleboro, and is a contemporary realist painter working in oils to capture feelings of light, substance and story.  A graduate of Studio Incamminati's advanced fine arts program in Philadelphia, her subjects include still life, portrait, figure, wildlife, and landscape. 

Dudley Merritt of Portland is also new to the gallery, and he is an example of the fascinating and varied backgrounds of Maine artists. In addition to being an accomplished watercolorist, his work has included building and painting sets on such movies as “12 Years a Slave” and “Moonrise Kingdom.”

Visitors to the gallery will appreciate the evocative photographs of Jim Nyce, resident of Cushing.  His vision is expressed in these words, “I’m fascinated by breaking the bonds of context, design, color relationships, visual layers, and textural elements which can transcend the two-dimensional nature of my images.”

In addition to the work of 24 additional guest artists in this show, Will Kefauver has original oils and prints in “The Little Holiday Show.” He is President of the Pemaquid Group of Artists, and is a Signature Member of the National Society of Artists and the Bristol Road Galleries in Damariscotta. Kefauver also teaches beginning and intermediate painting classes in oils and acrylics for teens and adults in his studio.

Kefauver invites shoppers to visit the gallery and enjoy one of the many reasons Damariscotta and Midcoast Maine are exceptional: a wealth of gorgeous artwork created by local artists.

The Kefauver Studio & Gallery is located at 144 Bristol Road, Damariscotta, and is open from 10 .m. to 6:30 p.m.  daily.
