"Signs of Fall"
The Heywood Gallery, celebrates ArtWalk Waldoboro on Saturday, September 8th with “Signs of Fall”, a show of paintings depicting stupendous skies full of movement, nature turning warm colors, gourds, and squashes. “Fall is one of my favorite times of the year — Mother Nature outdoing herself with her splashes of color,” says Anne Heywood, owner and featured artist of the Heywood Gallery. “I truly hate to say good-bye to summer, but as an artist I am particularly attracted to the excitement of summer changing to fall. I extend that concept beyond the “pretty foliage” landscape, to include scenes that elicit moods and still life's that carry a feeling to the viewer.”

André E. Benoit Constructs at Tidemark Gallery
August 11, Waldoboro’s Second Saturday Artwalk, launches a show of new work by André Benoit of Harpswell and Boothbay Harbor renown. Using odds and ends and things others might just throw away, he makes art that’s fun and light-hearted. His process is long and fascinating, "what I most enjoy about my work with salvaged materials are the stories behind my acquisition of them, and the opportunity to meld unrelated pieces into a composition that commands a second look.

Philippe Guillerm Gallery will
open its doors to celebrate the wonderful summer with “TA DA!” a One-Man-Show exhibit.
The gallery will exhibit a selection of sculptures, drawings and paintings by the well known artist Philippe Guillerm.
“TA DA!” a One-Man-Show is a powerful exhibit that depicts the power of recycling, an artist's vision of how, with what he see and what he finds, transforms objects into pieces of art. His medium: driftwood.
Philippe has been traveling along the shores of many islands, bays and on many oceans in the quest to salvage that special piece of adrift wood that will speak to him. Philippe also questions our sensibilities in preserving nature with his very powerful paintings of underwater views and earth looking shells.

The Natural and the Unnatural
September 8, 2018 Waldoboro Art Walk
Two printmakers join forces to depict the real and the surreal of their lives., or at least their art.They grew up in the same Waldoboro neighborhood in the 70’s and 80’s and have been friends since nursery school days. Perhaps it was playing along (and in) the Medomak River that gave them their eye for detail, creative spirit, and love of art.
Anne Wooster has been an artist and lover of nature since age two, when she painted her entire body. After graduating from Medomak Valley High School she attended the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore. The Warren Community School was the next stop on her journey. While attending Haystack School of Art with other teachers, she discovered and fell in love with Monotype printing of Maine flora. Monotypes are reminiscent of photography and yet feel like painting. Each print uses live plant material; no two print are the same. Anne gathers her printing material from gardens, fields, forests, and the seashore as she and her partner, Steven Peaslee, travel across the country with their artwork.
Scott Minzy doodled through that same Medomak Valley High School. His path to art was an interesting one. He studied Communications at Curry College and found himself in the world of Public Relations and Corporate Sales. Trying his hand at art was a respite from that life. Looking for a more authentic life, he returned to Maine and earned a Bachelors of Fine Art at USM. He teaches fine art and digital media at Erskine Academy while also working at his studio in Pittston. Scott’s work addresses the universal themes of fear, regret, and longing.These feelings are made manifest with an intricate network of wiry, anatomical lines, delicate and twisted. Relief printing is a way to depict both inner turmoil and outer physicality of the human form at one time. His artwork has been included in the collection of Bowdoin College, and exhibited and screened in the US and Europe.

Roberta was born in New Castle, PA. Her drawing interest began in childhood and continued through high school and a 20 year US Army career.
During her military service, Roberta also attended the Art League School in Alexandria, VA. She began life drawing sessions there in 1984 and continues this essential practice into the present. She brings the same passion for figure drawing to landscape painting “all in one go” and views it as an equal endless challenge of decision making and using time wisely before the moment disappears or the weather changes or the figure moves.
Roberta lives in Maine where she paints landscape, still life and portraits. Her work is in many private collections and can be viewed at her studio/gallery in Waldoboro, The Wiscasset Bay Gallery, Ingram Art and Antiques, Wiscasset, and The Adam Cave Gallery, Raleigh NC.
