Artist Statement: "My paintings are based on observations, memories, and idealisms and how they are affected by time, changed, and distractions. The sensory worlds of my landscapes are delineated by margins much the way a daydream is impinged upon by an appointment. When I paint, I hope to portray the bittersweet magic of ideal moments, which manage to exist wedged between the other components of a hectic day." --Susan Williams 2010

Roberta Sprague - Mount Desert, ME
Mixed Media & Collage Artist

"Summer Sky" | Mixed Media Collage | 14"x12"

Artist Statement: "I have been fascinated by the elusive qualities of light and color as long as I can remember. In my work I seek to capture the ever-changing patterns that vary with the movement of branches and shadows through the landscape, with the seasons, the time of day, and the weather. My work is about these patterns. I create collages by first hand painting paper and then making shapes and designs that provide layers of color, light, and pattern. My search to capture the colors of the Maine landscape have led me to the exploration of other mediums, to accent my collages with oil stick, colored pencil, oil pastel and photographs of my work. These add layers, texture and line, visual moments for the eye to focus on. " --Roberta Sprague

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."

Andew Wyeth

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.
