Wendy Barrett – Old Orchard Beach, ME (web)
"The Other Half" | Photograph | Printed to size
Artist Statement: "The camera is a tool I use to capture the illusion and beauty surrounding me here in my adopted state of Maine. I love to photograph a broad range of subjects, but find myself drawn to those that are unique...in the moment...successes. My love of nature shines through in the majority of my work. Given all of the beauty we have available to us to appreciate everyday living here in Maine, it's very easy for me to find unique shots every time I leave home with my camera in tow." --Wendy Barrett
Terry Hire – Northport, ME (web)
"Chesterwood" | Photograph | 18"X26"
Artist Statement: "From my earliest exposure to art, I have responded to abstract paintings of all sorts. The reductionist point of view seems to have always resonated with my own way of seeing the world. And I see my environment through the camera, not as it is necessarily, but as it could be; as it is in my own mind's eye. Color compels me. There is an emotional charge to it. I see in color; I dream in color. It is man-made objects and building parts that catches my eye, and if the right lighting is present and a daub of color, then I am off and running, arranging the elements in a graphic and abstract way, playing up the surface texture and repetition of line and pattern. I always maintain that 'beauty is its own reason'." --Terry Hire
