Julie Vohs - Portland, ME (web)
Painter

"Hooked on Manifestation" | Encaustic on Wood Panel | 10"x22"

Artist Statement: "I paint to create a metaphorical view of human emotion, using color, figurative and abstract elements as visual language. The paintings serve as allegories of those experiences and stories that make us human. I let each piece reveal it?s story by engaging in the process of responding to the visual information before me. Finding that narrative often feels like crossing the Arctic Ocean on foot, hopping from ice floe to floe, while the story flows around and through, revealing itself in ebbs and flows. My objective in this process is to create a space in which the viewer may encounter unarticulated aspects of her or his own humanity." --Julie Vohs

Beth Henderson - Belfast, ME
Encaustic Painter, Sculptor & Mixed Media Artist

"MindMeld" | Encaustic/Mixed Media | 12"x9"x1.5"

Artist Statement: "Some years before I had ever heard of geometry, I delighted in a means of problem solving that seemed to especially suit me. For the most part, I learned on my own in the cellar, at the workbench building birdhouses. Later, in high school, the REAL Geometry gave me a stomachache and made my palms sweat. There, I grudgingly had to learn with "my hands tied behind my back." Still later in life, as an educator, I came to revere John Dewey. He's the "learning by doing" proponent. John would support building a birdhouse, listening to bird songs, and he probably would support dissecting road kill birds as opposed to studying skeletal diagrams in a textbook. Fifty years ago, this personal journey of "learning by doing" began with building birdhouses. For the last ten years, as a sculptor and, recently, a creator of encaustic/mixed media, I still learn in the same manner. And, just incidentally, Maine cardinals still prefer their comfy nests...not my birdhouses!" --Beth Henderson

Maine Artists Quotes

"My aim is to escape from the medium with which I work; to leave no residue of technical mannerisms to stand between my expression and the observer."

Maine-Magazine

Since 2008, Maine Arts Scene online magazine has been promoting Maine artists and arts organizations in new and enterprising ways. We quietly revolutionized the local magazine world by offering a truly democratic voice to Maine artists and arts organizations throughout the state. For a small fee, individual artists and arts organizations can submit their press releases to present their work and promote their events on our popular site and social networks. As we reached the 10,000 visits per month milestone in 2009, we decided to push the online magazine boundaries one step further by launching the first statewide juried multi-disciplinary virtual online showcase. We created a unique virtual experience that resembles an actual gallery space, with various rooms to navigate and art work displayed to scale. In 2012, Maine Art Scene is going one step further.  Maine artists and private collectors of Maine art will soon be able to create online stores and sell their work. Arts organizations including galleries, museums, and non-profits will also be able to set up online gifts shops,  box offices and donation pages.
