Artist Statement: Artist Statement: "I like to set up a shot and then, while photographing it, agonize over the fact that I'm not seeing my vision in the viewfinder. Then I get to put that expectation aside and see what I actually DID capture, which is often a lot more intriguing." --Seth Whited

Artist Statement: "For years I have focused on the concept of the 'temple,' my own vision of an architectural locus or passage for the human spirit. Not unlike the pyramids of Egypt, I envision the temple as a machine that transports the viewer metaphorically or metaphysically to realms of consciousness beyond that of the everyday. I present the temple itself or often objects 'removed' from within the imagined interior. Objects include masks, shields, totems, bowls, blankets and ceremonial instruments that are part energy collectors and part sacred spectacles. With that said, artistically speaking, the work focuses on my interest in conceptual art as worked though more traditional artistic media including ritualized craft. I find I am drawn to wiring objects together, actually tying together disparate elements that might have had a most casual relationship, and tapping into the strings, fabric or lines of energy that constitute (whether metaphorically, spiritually or physically) the infinite universes we inhabit. At the same time, each work is a statement of the possibilities, cross cultural ties and grounding that art can generate in an age of ever accelerating human and global activity. Ultimately, my intention is to create works that speak to mysterious primal, ancestral and contemporary human longings." --Paul Oberst

"Nigrel Steps"

Artist Statement: "These images submitted to you represent my reentry into photography after a hiatus of over twenty years. While I never lost interest in or my love of the medium, economic necessity and other professional work took precedent over this artistic outlet. I continued to shoot images during this time, but was unable to do anything with them. I am back in the game, and loving it. These three images are taken from the various themes that continue to intrigue me. All have the elements that can usually be found in my work: texture, strong color, and expressive lighting, presented in an abstract manner. If they illicit an emotional response, it is because these images are from my heart." --Terry Hire

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.
