Painter & Printmaker

"Wild Dusk" | Acrylic on Canvas | 36"x36"

Artist Statement: "It's not always easy to get to that place where you can go heart to hand. It's the best. What's left on the canvas is honesty. I relate it to letting down your guard, no facade, like a musician that can somehow get up on stage and miraculously remove the audience. They lay their soul out there and sing or play directly from their heart. It's gutsy and beautiful." --Laurie Hadlock

Chris Bennett - Vassalboro, ME (web)
Fine Art Photographer

"Self Portrait" | Inkjet Pigment Print | 13"x19"

Artist Statement: "Exploring the concept of solitude and loneliness through photography. I am at times deeply skeptical of today's society and the amount of technology, media, and information that is thrown at us on a daily basis. It is overwhelming and difficult to slog through the muck of life on certain occasions. We have forgotten how to be alone. Alberto Giacometti once said that he doesn't sculpt the human body, but the shadow that the body casts. Look for this metaphorical shadow in my work." --Chris Bennett

Ceramic Artist

"Mel-Oh-Tea-Us, A Ceramic Teapot" 2010 | Stoneware Clay & Beaded Wire | 18"x9.5"x4.5" | $1,500.00

Artist Statement: "Trained as a painter, I evolved into a ceramic artist. This opened unrealized new avenues of expression for me. My construction techniques include hand-building, altering, wheel-throwing, carving, and using press mold, slip cast and photo silkscreen methods. My works involve multiple layers of glazings and firings. My signature works are intricately detailed whimsical teapots. My creativity emerges from an abundance of subconscious artistic concepts, generated by inspiration from the practice of meditation." --Meryl Ruth

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.
