Michael Maron - South Portland, ME
Painter

"Nunan's Lobster Hut" | Watercolor | 12" x 16"

Artist Statement: "My watercolor paintings focus on scenes and places in coastal Maine. I like to paint my subjects as abstracts, breaking the scene into basic shapes, and then painting each shape individually in its entirety before moving on to the next shape. I am always amazed as the overall picture begins to emerge." -- Michael Maron

Penny Oliphant - Pittsfield, ME (web)
Painter

"Prides Corner" | Painting | 15"X20"

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. I want to express my response to the solitary and sometimes desolate nature of the landscapes found along the back roads of interior Maine and New England. I'm inspired by intense light transforming the marginal places and objects along the roadside. In each of these paintings, my attention was initially focused on the remoteness of these structures. Drawing these subjects made me aware of their impermanent existence. Too often what I paint is eventually torn down and destroyed. I'm a member of the Society for Commercial Archeology, a group of professionals who value much of what is currently neglected along our highways." -- Penny Oliphant

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

"Little Black Reflections", Oil Painting on Linen

Artist Statement: "I try to capture and remain true to my initial inspiration in the scenes that I portray. Painting the places that I love feeds my spirit and connects me to my deep appreciation of nature. My oil paintings are based on photographs that I have taken. I am particularly drawn to the reflective quality of water. I frequently turn the canvas upside down. That way I see things from a new perspective, allowing me to paint what I see instead of what I know. This creates a pleasing balance between the representational and the abstract." -- Lindsay Hopkins-Weld

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.
