River Arts is pleased to announce Mark Malinowski’s solo show “Maine Moments” opening in the River Room Thursday, May 30 through Wednesday, June 19.

The show features Malinowski’s latest works celebrating Maine’s special places and the beauty, light, color and the wonder of living here. An opening reception with wine and a charcuterie board will take place on Saturday, June 1 from 2 to 4 p.m.

In conjunction with his Maine paintings, Malinowski will feature several doll portrait paintings along with some of the actual doll subjects themselves. Each doll tells a unique story and the goal of the portraits is to celebrate and examine the place they have had in popular culture through the years. Malinowski has been selected for numerous juried shows throughout New England and his works acquired by collectors throughout the country.

Malinowski says, “I loved to draw at an early age and I grew up visiting Maine every summer, so it makes sense that I have worked hard to become an artist who uses Maine as both my literal and figurative canvas. In just a few years I have had the opportunity to work with several amazing New England artists such as Laura Tryon Jennings and Susan Abbott who have shared their amazing talent with me and helped me to realize my own potential as an artist. This show is the next step in my journey to create work that reflects on the beauty that is Maine.”
