Plein Air Show ends July 9

    This year’s plein air event sponsored by the Maine Art Gallery, “Paint Wiscasset and Beyond,” is one of the most successful ever, with high attendance and sales. The oils, acrylics, and watercolors created by Maine artists during the second week in June will be available for just a few more days, as the show closes on Sunday, July 9.

    Visitors will find previously painted works by the 20 participating artists on the first floor of the historic Old Academy building on Warren Street in Wiscasset. The second floor contains “wet” paintings from the plein air event. Among the well-known Maine artists in the show this year are Michael Vermette, Diane Dubreuil, Eric Glass, Anthony Watkins, Deborah Chapin, Deena Ball, and Roberta Goschke.

    The Maine Art Gallery acknowledges with thanks exhibit sponsor Barnes Custom Window Treatments and season sponsor Sherri Dunbar of Tim Dunham Realty.

    A nonprofit organization, the Maine Art Gallery is dedicated to the advancement and preservation of the visual, fine and applied arts through exhibitions, lectures, demonstrations and educational programs for children and adults since 1958. More information can be found at
