Gold /Smith Gallery is showing a selection of small paintings by Boothbay artist John Vander. The paintings are a distillation of summer itself.
The artist says, “The works are mostly landscape based although some approach the completely abstract. They are not transcriptions of a place but memory images. I try to use the quality of paint, the energy of line to evoke the weather and the effect of light. Atmosphere is more important than subject.”
Gold/Smith Gallery is at 8 McKown Street, Boothbay Harbor. The gallery is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day. For more information the gallery can be reached at 207-633-6252.
