Renee Lammers - Bucksport, ME (web)
Painter

"Castine's British Canal" | Oil on Copper | 6"X6"

Artist Statement: "Renee Lammers was inspired from a visit to the Boston Museum of Fine Art to begin painting with oils on copper panels. In this museum were two oil paintings on copper dating back to the 1500's. Lammers was dazzled by the flawless crack free surface of these paintings and also loved how the copper gleamed under the oil paint. After "Copper as a Canvas", Lammers discovered archival properties copper metal had. The thermal coefficient of expansion of the copper metal is almost identical to the oil paint—when the temperatures change, the copper panel and oil paint expand and contract together. Leonardo Di Vinci thought that copper was the most perfect substrate and wondered why more painters didn't use it." --Renee Lammers

David Sturdevant - Belfast, ME (web)
Painter

"Christmas Cove - Monhegan" | Oil on Canvas | 12"X16"

Artist Statement: "Artist Statement: "Recently, I received a sudden and painful reminder that life is short. With every waking moment, I have a choice to do what I have been doing right along or I can do more with my life and really appreciate the people and places surrounding me. I have a renewed awareness that time is too short to stay between the lines—to always watch where I am going—to abide by all of the rules. I have a greater appreciation for life, and my paintings are often of those moments when I am moved the most—those moments when I am most thankful to be alive. I hope my paintings inspire people to stop looking where they are going all the time and instead to spend more time admiring the limited magnificent sights and moments we have all around us. Cheers!" -- David J. Sturdevant

Ellen Thayer - South Portland, ME (web)
Painter

"Reflection Rockland Harbor" | Oil on Canvas | 18"X24"

Artist Statement: "Boating, sailing, and kayaking the coast of Maine over the last 25 years has allowed me to explore Maine's breathtaking archipelago on many occasions. As a meteorologist, I am particularly drawn to the vast colors of the water resulting from fluctuations in light, weather conditions, and the environment. When capturing the fluidity of these reflections with oil on canvas or baltic birch, I'm instantly transported back to the serene scenes in which they were observed." -- Ellen Thayer

Dianna Rust - Camden, ME (web)
Fine Art Photographer

"Capricornus #12" | Cyanotype Printed on Fabriano Aristico Paper | 12"X18"

Artist Statement: "Whatever camera or means I use to capture my images, from a homemade hatbox pinhole to a modern scanner, I am fascinated by how what is mirrored back is no longer a literal interpretation. I find this ability of photography to transform, to create and discover mysteries, part of the magic of the whole process. It is about making the ordinary extraordinary. It is about waking up the senses. In addition, I have long been drawn to the simplicity and beauty of making prints using historical processes, such as platinum, salt, and cyanotype, on fine art papers. My prints are very much about the work of the hand, and each one is unique." -- Dianna Rust

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.
