This exhibition, “Anthology - A Collection of Short Story Paintings,” is collaboration between the artist and you the viewer. “I supply the color. You provide the words to make the story yours, John M. T. Seitzer says. “Everybody ‘reads’ their own interpretation into what they see.”
Let your imagination wander as you observe the rainbow of colors, simple shapes and thick textures in these paintings at Joy to the Wind Gallery in Boothbay Harbor.
Some ‘story’ paintings are dark and brooding while others are light, bright and cheerful. Most of the work is oil paint on board. A few are comprised of pasted collage elements such as bits of actual script, photographs or illustrations that hide and are partially revealed beneath the paint.
These intimate renderings are sized like pages from a book. And like a book- they await the reader.
“Anthology - A Collection of Short Story Paintings” will be on view through July 31.
A reception with the artist will be held on Friday, July 5 from 7-8:30. Stop in and take a look, read a ‘Story” and visit with the artist! Exhibit runs through July 31.
Joy To The Wind is at 34 Atlantic Avenue. For more information, call 633-7025 or visit joytothewind.com
