Painter

"Aunt Lou" | Oil on Linen | 32"x36"

Artist Statement: "I would describe my style as Contemporary Realism. I'm drawn to artwork that has an edge to it. Instead of being concerned with representing outward beauty, I'm more interested in discovering the unsettling reality that exists beneath the surface of contemporary life." --Penny Oliphant

Painter

"Murray's Bagels" | Oil on Panel | 16"x20"

Artist Statement: "I have always thought of painting as a form of prayer—not in a religious sense, but in the process itself: finding a quiet place to work, carving out the time needed, going deeper into my own awareness of what it means to be living. Why am I intrigued enough to paint one object or view or person, and not another? It's always more than just capturing a moment, or a likeness. There is something deeply relational about the painter, the object and the painting that keeps me working. I think, ultimately, I am painting my life--what it means to me, to be alive at this particular time. I hope I convey a deep sense of gratitude. As a self-taught painter, I am always learning, always investigating ways to move forward. Art, in general, is a language, and as such, we who communicate through this language are always learning new ways of "saying" what we need to say. But, of course, we need 'listeners'—those who appreciate and take the time to look closely and search out meaning and intent. To those kind souls, I am eternally grateful." --Melissa Post van der Burg

Painter

"Clowns" | Acrylic/Collage on Board | 8.5"x11"

Artist Statement: Making art. To explore—other "worlds" through visual expression. To be led—by my imagination. To follow—the unexpected. To allow—the imagery to come through me. To journey—to the unknown and unknowable. To live—the struggle through the creative process. To discover—and be compelled to experience my own freedom." --Kathleen Noyes

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.
