Artist Statement: "My digital fine art images are often inspired by a glimpse of color, unique graphic element or an emotional connection to the subject. The aspiration of my work is to create an aspect of intrigue within my photograph. I have an array of photographic genre that includes among others dance imagery, portraits and photojournalism. I work with commercial clients, private portrait commissions and offer my fine art images in various venues." -- Beth Anne Gordley

Painter

"Stories" | Oil on Canvas 19x24"

Artist Statement: "My paintings reflect the surroundings and events that affect my life. This current series was inspired by my mother-in-law's sewing drawer. I was reminded of my own mother's wooden spools and the connections I felt to the women of my family who all sewed. A spool of thread, a humble form of utilitarian simplicity is an icon whose history chronicles stories of necessity, practicality, fashion poverty, labor and sweat. From one generation to the next, the familiar spool stirs personal recollections and family stories. In further exploring this image, I have found it rich in metaphor conveying personal beliefs. What began as an exploration of family evolved into connections with all of humanity, crossing all cultural borders. We share a 'common thread' which sews us into a fabric called the world." -- Lesia Sochor

Sculptor

"Solar 1" | Steel and Bronze Wire, Glass | 24.5"X10"X10"

Artist Statement: "Being an artist/sheep farmer has been a natural rhythm for me for several decades. The hours laboring on the farm and driving the tractor provide idea incubation time for the development of my pieces. The less strenuous days of the year allow studio time. Animal forms and physical gestures inspire most of my work. Pieces are composed of various materials including recycled sisal hay twine; sheep fence wire, rocks from the fields, plaster, gut, and wood from the forest. The quiet action of winding and weaving of the wire and twine around and around becomes both meditative and structural. Materials assert themselves and a piece often takes on its own gestured direction. I toy with balance and mobility allowing some of the sculptures becoming animated when agitated by a breeze, a touch, or a bounce in the floor. Shadows amplify the sculpture." -- Jean Noon

Maine Artists Quotes

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.
