Petrea Noyes - Brooks, ME
Mixed Media Artist
Mixed Media on Canvas
Artist Statement: "I think of my work as conceptual art in that the process is more important to me than the traditional aesthetic concerns that go hand in hand with oil or acrylic paintings. My recent body of work explores concepts of family, memory, and constructed narrative. The work in this series was originally inspired by photographs in a 100-year old family album inherited from my Norwegian grandmother. These found images are heavily altered and manipulated in the finished works which combine photography with mixed media and painting. I think of my work as a trans-generational project—the past reaching forward, the present reaching back." --Petrea Noyes

Rose Mahanor - Fryeburg, ME
Oil Glaze over Studio Pencil
Artist Statement: "Having been raised in an idyllic quaint northern town in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, surrounded by magnificent Lake Superior, creating art that replicated the beauty of the area seemed natural. Becoming an artist was an obvious career. I received my B.F.A from the Center of Creative Studies and my M.F.A. from Wayne State University in Detroit, MI. Over the years I have exhibited my work in Detroit, MI, Houghton, MI, Anchorage, AK, Brattelboro, VT, Keene, NH, and now currently showing in several towns in Maine. I've sold many paintings and have received numerous commissions, the largest being for the E.P.A in Ann Arbor, MI; I have painted several large scale wall murals in private homes and have taught art for several years in both college and public school and plan to teach several art adult education courses in my new location of Fryeburg, Maine." --Rose Mahanor
