Leslie Anderson - Sedgwick, ME (web)
Painter

"June Twilight Deer Isle" | Oil on Canvas | 18"X24"

Artist Statement: "For me, painting is an analogy for life: a balance of risk and control, knowing when to go with the flow, knowing when to stop. I started painting several years ago as an antidote to my crazy job in high tech, never dreaming it would change my life." --Leslie Anderson

Lindsay Hopkins-Weld - Northeast Harbor, ME (web)
Painter

"Gott Pools" | Oil on Canvas 20"x24"

Artist Statement: "I try to capture and portray my initial inspiration. Painting what I see, rather than what I know, creates a pleasing balance between realism and abstraction. Painting the places that I love feeds my spirit and reafirms my deep appreciation of nature. My aim is for serenity, simplicity and clarity through the use of color and light." --Lindsay Hopkins-Weld

Hannah Ineson - Damariscotta, ME (web) | "Sea Mist" | Watercolor | 22"x24"

Hannah Ineson - Damariscotta, ME (web)
Painter

"Sea Mist" | Watercolor | 22"x24"

Artist Statement: "Most of my work, painting and teaching, has been in watercolor, although I have also enjoyed both pastel and etching. Recently I also have been working in oil on canvas and linen. The subject matter that dominates my paintings reflects the coastal Maine area where I live and work most of the year, due to my interest in the working waterfront and the timeless wilderness areas here. More importantly, the process of forging the image on paper or canvas is what compels me – the composition, the spontaneous or intentional merging of pigment into value, color, and texture. The expression of the image is in itself surprising and exciting; the creative process has a life of its own. The resulting images reflect the inner and outer journeys that any artist must undertake in 'making art'." --Hannah Ineson

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.
