Friday afternoon, Aug. 2, artist Henry Isaacs and arts writer/historian Dan Kany entertained an overflow audience at Gleason Fine Art, 31 Townsend Avenue in Boothbay Harbor.
The subject was “Travel Notes: The Paintings of Henry Isaacs,” written by Isaacs’ close friend, Kany, also the arts critic for Maine Today Media.
The book talk coincided with the opening reception for Isaacs’ new show at Gleason: “Moving Pictures,” paintings from Isaacs’ spring trip to Nepal to paint the Himalayas. The show runs through Sept. 3. Both the show catalog and the book, “Travel Notes: The Paintings of Henry Isaacs,” are available through the gallery. Gleason Fine Art is Henry Isaacs’ sole American gallery.
Gallery owners are Dennis and Marty Gleason; staff are Andrew Gleason and Diana Kerr. Summer hours are Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
